    .SCR file will not work.

    Ok so I know this isn't strictly a Windows problem but its something that wont work on my Windows XP machine.

    I have this screensaver .scr file of the BMW Roundel which spins etc. I can right click the file and use install. When this happens the Display Properties window appears with the Screensaver set to None. I check the list and its not in there.

    I then thought ok lets put this in the System 32 folder. I do this check Display Properties its not in the Screensaver list.

    I have also clicked the 'Test' option from the right click list and I get a dialogue box up which shows me the settings for the Screensaver, choose option etc and all that jazz and then click ok. Nothing further happens.. I just cannot get this to work. I have replaced the file and re-downloaded it from about 20 different resources and everytime the same thing happens.

    Any advice very much appreciated.

    It's labelled as the Roundel Screensaver.

    Thank you
