Skrommel's Software / Runsaver and Windows 8.1
« on: November 12, 2014, 04:32 AM »
Hi there...

first of all: Runsaver works great in Windows XP or Windows 7... ... all fine...!!

When using Runsaver in Windows 8.1 however the program or task that shall be started will be "finished" somehow ...
Im my tests some metro-style background comes up when "screensaver" activates. Runsaver does it's tasks but these tasks "dissapear" when metro-style background disappears...
This also happens when Metro-Style is not used... and "log in to desktop instead of "log-in to metro" is chosen in windows 8.1

Hard to explain this in my poor english :-)

So I try to explain it better with an example...

1. Have a script "test.vbs" to be run by "Runsaver"
2. Put following code inside "test.vbs"

WScript.Sleep 1000
Dim SH, txtFolderToOpen
Set SH = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
txtFolderToOpen = "%windir%"
SH.Run txtFolderToOpen
Set SH = Nothing
WScript.Sleep 1000
msgbox "This is a test"

3. Choose "test.vbs" to be run by "Runsaver"
4. Switch to 1 Minute and wait :-)

5. See what happens: In my tests... Metro-Style-Background appears... Explorer-Window out of Script appears... Messagebox appears...
6. Click ok in the "Test-Message" box... Metro-Style-Background disappears... then You will see that explorer-window also disappears as if it would never have been opened...

7. Re-Check this in windows 7... Explorer is shown correctly... and keeps open...

Please have a look at it.

Thanks very much ;)

Multi Photo Quotes / Pictures shown twice or more at the same time
« on: September 19, 2012, 03:15 PM »
I'm testing Multi Photo Quotes and I love it.

While testing I didn't find out how to prevent that a picture is shown twice or more at the same time.

Let me try to explain this: I have a folder with pictures A B C D E F G H inside. 3 Monitors are used with full-screen-image.

Is it configureable that for example first ABC , then DEF, then GEH is shown? (Pic A => Monitor1 // Pic B => Monitor2 ...)

The shuffle-feature is great but often gives Output like AAB, then CFF... or even GGG... Is there a feature to use shuffle with preventing same pic at the same time?

Hope I explained in a understandable way in poor english :-) Thanx a lot for this great screensaver!! And thanks for any help!
