Add support to make left or right two monitor setup allow for monitor 2 to be left or right when running 3840 to cover both monitors. It does work, just not correctly when I have monitor 2 to my left. By default it works when monitor 2 is to the right.

I have no Directx folder under C:\windows\system32. Does this mean anything. I ran Dxdiag and I have version 11 with no problems. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jim,

Tried running dxsetup.exe and was told there was a newer version already installed. I'm at a loss for words.

Ootje, seems that it tries to connect to a device on the local network, why?

Former KGB Agent,
I do not know that. Only I get a warning of mine firewall and the IP-adres is the IP of the NAS.
And the warning came, when I started to build the EXE. Maybe looking for a place/folder to store it?
I blocked it. I do have public folders(home network) on the NAS, music, video etc.
And this new Win10 has to login at the NAS to access it's folders.

Program claims to use minimal resources but does not. Win 10 64x using 20% resources for me. Also, program is causing a left shift of the desktop icons resulting in the left border icons being cut off by approx 15%. Response by developer would be great!

Solutions for common issues

1. If the program does not accept the code, please check your antivirus settings, it may block the Internet connection for the program.

2. If you see "the program can not start because d3dx9_43.dll is missing from your computer." error, please update your DirectX. Visit the Microsoft download center to do this.

Failed to install on my XP machine, it said editor.exe
not a valid Win32 application

Reply   |   Comment by Peter James  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Peter James, when I had my XP computer I couldn't use these types of programs either. I could use screen savers, but no animated desktops or any programs to make them. When I got my new Win 10 computer I was looking forward to trying these programs.

Velvet, Thank you, I found the same problem most times they did not work, I was hoping that this might be different.
Now I use John's background switcher, which is free and excellent, and I have time lapse videos which I can play on Media Player Classic, which is also very excellent.
I just have to start them manually but that is not a problem. Tks again p.j.

The setup.exe program attempted to
- modify a registry setting that is used to start programs when the computer starts (\ REGISTRY \ USER \ ... \ SOFTWARE \ MICROSOFT \ WINDOWS \ CURRENTVERSION \ RUN).
- change the Windows system directory. The file C: \ WINDOWS \ ANIMATED WALLPAPERMAKER UNINSTALLER.EXE was created.
I don't like that.

Lothar, that's the price. If it would not write itself to CURRENTVERSION \ RUN you wouldn't see animated wallpaper after reboot.
But I understand you.

Downloaded and installed without problem, win10 64bit.

included examples are excellent.

Tried resizing for my screen 1680 x 1024.

I have 3 screens 2 at 1680 x 1024, 1 at 1280 x 1024.

totally screwed the icons, wallpaper squeeze to 2 1/2 screens, and black band on bottom and right hand side.

Appears not meant for multiple screens.

I've got a message "Editor.exe is not a valid application of Win32 system".

I have Windows XP.

lg, I know some c++ apps complied with Visual Studio 2015 are giving this message, there's nothing you can do.

Reply   |   Comment by ew  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

ew, maybe even earlier version of Visual Studio

Wasn't this a GOTD offer a few weeks ago, or was that another one?

Kiwi1960, that was Animated Screensaver Maker from the same company.
