First off hello all!! First post here, was wondering if or how you can get animated backgrounds to work on Windows 7, I"m assuming you can since its the "ultimate" addition I know Vista Ultimate has animated backgrounds. Thanks!
I suddenly wonder if that was all wishful thinking and no substance. Cause if it was as easy as he claimed and wrote I assume that one or both of us would have had it working. Now there is always Stardocks Deskscapes, though I have yet to try it under Windows 7, I will try it Wednesday and let you know.
well I went through what that guy wrote and it did not work. I am now kinda worried as to what that file actually does. Anyways deskscapes works perfectly. =-D
ok played around with deskscapes and found out that the demo (allows 3 dreams only) works like a beautiful charm. I then decided to uninstall the demo and install full version. Once full one is installed it says that my Desktop windows manager is not on or installed. I looked at the forums at wincustomize, tried a few fixes that helped vista users, but no luck. It must work cause the demo works great for me. if anyone has tried something different let me know. I really miss my fish dream T_T
I just downloaded it and it worked nearly perfectly. Thanks for the heads up on that tip. Anyway, I'm going to write up an article on how I got it working (3 steps more or less). One note, you cannot change wether it stretches the video or centers it, it will stretch and crop to fill the screen no matter what you do.
would really like to know how you got deskscape to work, or are you using another program from stardock? I can easily get the demo to work flawlessly, but I have had no luck with the full version. Thought about looking for an older version of deskscapes but cannot find one.
Did you use what was originally suggested by lorenkjr or are you using deskscape?
ok I decided to reinstall with 32bit win7 instead of 64bit. The original suggestion works great for me now. I am still having trouble with deskscapes working. now I just need to find some good dreams in wmv or mpg format.
