Windows 7: Problem installing DreamScene on 7

Windows 7, build 7600.
Problem installing DreamScene on 7

Hi There,

I'm trying to install Dream Scene on Windows 7 build 7600. I have Aero enabled.
I run the file which I got from this website: Windows 7 DreamScene | How to Install & Enable DreamScene in Windows 7

But I run it, click ok the to user account window and it says "You must run this progam with admin rights", well I am on the main admin account, have tried right clicking it choosing "run as admin" but still does the same error. Have even tried it in safe mode, but the same error happens.

Any ideas?

Thanks deamze

1.It is not any system issue only installer issue -wrong done.I also tried a while ago and I had the same problem,the same installer is available on many people report this issue.Please read comments under article:

I cant run this as administrator. When I clik right button on it and “run as administrator” it starts, next “Press any key” – I press and shows “You must run this program with admin rights” Any ideas?

Yep, build 7000 is having some issues with this one. Funny, all other programs has worked without a flaw.

… maybe this is only for 32-bit versions, ive got a 64-bit for now …

2.I unpacked this installer and it have only one pair dreamscene.dll and dreamscene.dll.mui -this means it work for only one platform: for x32 systems only or for x64 systems only - I suspect it work for only for x64.Somebody report he unpacked installer too,and enabled DreamScene manually

Yes, it works on Windows 7, you must unrar the file and run it from command prompt and it installs just fine. Win 7 RC x64
-I'll check it later because I'm tired now.

I suggest rather use my link

Downlodad required files appriopriate for your system-you didn't say what your system architecture x32 or x64.

for x64

for x32

1: Copy and paste DreamScene.dll to C:\Windows\system32\

2: Copy and paste DreamScene.dll.mui to C:\Windows\system32\en-US\

3: Import Dscene.reg to registry

4: Reboot.

5.To set a dreamscene file as desktop background just right click a dreamscene file and choose set as desktop background

Please note many times DreamScene cause high CPU usage.For these users I suggest buy DeskScapes - Your Edge In Software
-this program rather shouldn't cause high CPU usage

There is a split-second pause just before it loops. It's not that noticeable when you don't pay attention but when you...
