Oh yeah? I didn't know that Virtual PC/Windows XP mode would allow you to have access to the screen savers, etc.

It wont let you run the screen savers in XP mode, but it does install ALL of XP when you install the XP mode virtual machine, the .scr files are in the system32 dir. You can copy them in XP and paste them into Windows 7. I am actually quite impressed with XP mode, and Windows 7 overall. Microsoft surprised me with this one!

That only works if your processor supports Virtual PC or Windows XP mode.

Yes, sorry I should have specified that. Your processor has to suport Virtualization to run XP mode.

I have tried to install two different screensavers and both failed, with a message that the file for them couldn't be found. When I looked where I expected them to be, as it was in XP (C:Windows) I couldn't find them or the native screensavers either. How does one install a custom screensaver
