Hi Brink,

I was carefully reading through the Seven Forum and I notice I never did not do anything with UAC settings..Maybe that is the problem. I saw where you asked some one is the UAC turned off? I see where it can be adjusted with a slider..For Oceanis program should it be turned on or off? Just trying to figure out why this program is not working. Thanks!

It should be turned on, but you can try both to see if one may work better for you.

I am Getting Closer

Hi Brink,

After installing Oceanis several...I mean several times, I FINALLY got it to open. I am step 6. on the tutorial. I am not understanding the Browse. I only see 4 different screenshots. I am hoping there are more to pick from. Once I decide on the wallpaper of my chose, will the wallpaper fill the entire screen? After I figure that I do I restart the computer and open Oceanis to run? I am happy that I got the Oceanis to open, just need to figure out Step 6. and Step 7.

Thanks for all of your help and patience.

That's great news Poochie.

Those would just be 4 default images that are include with the program. To select images of your own that are saved on your computer, you would click on the Browse button, navigate to and select the folder where you have your images saved in, and click OK to then see those images in the display pane to check (select) from.

Ok...not time to party just yet. This is very new to me. I have not saved any images. I thought the images would be in the Oceanis program. Not understanding.... Do I have to go online and save different images in a folder? Where do I get the different images from? Help!!!!

Do I go to Images for Wallpaper, choose the image or images I like, then right click on copy image or do I right click on copy image URL to the folder? You can tell...I am clueless and this is all new to me. Thank you

You're welcome Poochie,

No, the program only comes with those 4 sample wallpapers.

Yes, you would have to download the wallpapers that you like from the internet, save them to say your C:\Users\(user-name)\My Pictures folder (or where you like), then "Browse" to that folder from within the Oceanis program to check the one you want as a wallpaper in the program.

You can use www.Google.com to search for "wallpapers". The site below is a good one for wallpapers. Usually you will have to click on the wallpaper at a site until you see the full size version of it, right click on the image and click on Save picture as, than save it in the folder on your computer of your choice.

Hi Brink,

FINALLY....IT WORKED!!!!! Yeah! Now when I close the netbook, will I have to repeat that last step or will the wallpaper stay on the screen? I am really happy to have something different, instead of the very boring blue screen. Thank you SO much! Have a gr8 week-end.

You're most welcome Poochie.

You should only have to repeat when you want to change the wallpaper.
