Are you aware that for auto updates to work, screensaver must be run outside Screensaver Factory, because each time you create/preview/generate screensaver from Screensaver Factory, it resets auto update data. So you must run it externally. So specifying XML and pressing preview in Screensaver Factory will not give you any results.

Second important thing is that auto update takes effect after you restart your screensaver. E.g. first time you run it, it downloads images in the background and sets up everything for the next run. Next time you run it, it uses the new images.
