Hello Jhoy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you click on the download button here, it takes you to the source site below where you would click on their Download button there to then select a download (ex: Softpedia Secure download US (zip)) option to actually download it.

Hello ykirei, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry about that. The Oceanis download link has been fixed.

malfunction

Hi, Iīm new here in.
Thatīs my poblem:
I installed Oceanis Wallpaper Changer at my Win 7 Starter-Netbook and was lucky some month.
But now (I think after an Windows Update, because I didnīt install any other software) it doesnīt work after starting Windows.
Only if I start the program and save changes (which I didnīt do), it appears again.
I un- and reinstalled the program... the same malfunction.
So I searched for th reason.
I found out when I doubleclick the 'wallpaperchanger.exe' it works fine.
So made a workaround and set a lnk to the startup-folder, but this canīt be the way...
Do you the reason and can you help?
Thanx, Axel.

Hello Axel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The Oceanis program must be running for it to work and keep your wallpaper changed to what you selected. Whenever the program is closed, the wallpaper will default back to the default Windows 7 Starter wallpaper.

It sounds like Oceanis may have been removed from running at startup, and you adding it back to the Startup folder would have course fixed this. By default when installed, Oceanis is set to run at startup and run in the background unless changed or removed.

Ok, I have downloaded and installed the Oceanis software, I assume correctly (Its working anyways). Except as I "Browse" for photos none turn up, even when I know I am looking at a folder full of .jpeg files. Do I need them in a different format? What's going on here?

Hello Dave, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's real picky on what folder you select to open when browsing. The folder you select must have images in itself and not in one of it's subfolders to be able to see them displayed in Oceanis. For example, if you select your Pictures library, then you will not see the images since the images are actually in one of the included folders in the Pictures library instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
