Will Microsoft Plus! screen saver work on Windows 7?

Sorry, I did not know which forum to put this in....I bought Microsoft Plus! for WindowsXP long time ago....could not ever use it because my older computer did not have enough oomph etc., to run it...it would run part of it but the part I wanted was the "Space" screensaver...have tried everywhere to find out if this would run on my new computer....would I damage anything by trying to install it or would it simply not work? Anyone that can help I would appreciate it....have wasted my money on this program and would love to use it....thanks in advance!

You could try it. It wouldn't damage your computer, it just wouldn't work (the features of Plus!.) Try it out, if it doesn't work, uninstall it and say... 'WHY DIDN'T IT WORK'

Welcome onebrighteyes,

You can try running it in Compatibility Mode and see if that works for you.
