Hello, I have try to install a screensaver which i downloaded the install.cpp codes from www.wischik.com/scr/.Now the screensaver will be run from the control panel of the windows itself.So lets say i want my C++ application to stop the screensaver from running when I want to.I know there is a function ShellExecute but I can''t find the destination of the scr file when it is installed.Does ShellExecute has this command ShellExecute(HWND,"close",scr,NULL,NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL)? I think a screensaver cannot be run from a application unless the screensaver is installed into the system itself and wait for a idle time before it runs.I really wish to get this job done before I handle in my submission.Hope someone kindly can help.thank you.
