Error: Cannot create screen saver

Postby eponymous » Sat Mar 19, 2005 12:28 am

I receive an error when trying to preview my builder project. The error asks if I have my display properties window open.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled but no fix. I'm running XP with screen saver turned off & have tried changing/tweaking to see if anything helps.

I have saved projects, self executing files and exisiting screen savers that all work - Preview did work up until I extended my screen saver to 55 minutes and now this error and I can no longer preview from within my builder project.

Any help or reported bug fixes? A new install/download hasn't helped.

Thanxs

Does this happen for one particular project only?

Problem fixed. Although I could not preview a saved builder project so instead I tried creating a screensaver. That error message stated a particular .jpg image file did not exist.

Essentially, an image file had been removed or renamed on my drive and as a result the builder project would not load.

For future support - the error message directed to me to the display properties window which was incorrect. It would have been more helpful to ask whether any image files had been recently moved, renamed or deleted.

Everything works fine now.
