    I have spent the last few nights creating screensavers in .NET, and need some information.

    When you right-click your desktop, and click Properties, and then the screensaver tab, that list of screensavers, which folder would I have to place my .scr in for that listbox to show it?

    Thanks in advance

    I gave the file a .scr extension, placed it in the system32 dir, but still no luck.

    Is there a tutorial on this?

    If you right-click, there should be an option named 'install'.

    Try that

    That should do the job, yeah. If not, I'm sure someone else will be able to give you a pointer
