Screensaver Distributable

Postby nitetroll » Thu Nov 12, 2009 5:33 pm

Hi . I purchased Screen Factory Enterprise 5.
I am very delighted with it and its user friendly interface and creating screen savers .
However I prefer to create Distributable Screen Savers , but note the file extension is .exe!
Although I would zip/rar these for people to download I know many have been put off by them being .exe and also some Anti-Virus progs show false alerts because of this.
So is there a way to make a Distributable with a .scr extension!?

Many thanks for any help offered .
I did today make a new saver with Screen Factory which you can see on my web site its the last bottom right one.

.SCR is the same as .EXE, in fact .SCR is an .EXE file that is renamed to .SCR Same bad meaning is attached to SCR files as it is for EXE, this is why it is better to zip the files that you distribute.

SCR extension is reserved for rew screensaver files and should not be used for other purposes, thus setup packages can not have SCR extension.
