As far as I know Screensavers aren´t different to a normal *.exe-File with the ending .scr or so. But I''m not really sure about that.

There must be more than just a *simple* .EXE file. The program needs to be configured (Like in control panel), So there is got to be more.

Here is a tutorial to make a Windows screen save. Although it is in VB, it does show you how to use the API and what you need to do.
