A screensaver is activated with different cmdline parameters by windows according to which function is needed at present time. A screensaver is an exe file renamed to scr.

I''m sorry but I can''t remember the parameters, but they are used to:
Activate screensaver (/s??)
Activate configuration (/c??)
Activate password configuration (/a??)
probably more?? - msdn has documentation about making a screensaver.

The question has been answered numerous times, just do a search on the board with the keyword "Screensaver"

btw. this only works with widows... :=)

Mvh

just replace the teapot drawing code with your choice of nice effect.

have fun, play nice and share with your friends,
