  • Windows Embedded Standard 7 is custom built from components.

    1. Try going back to the ThinClient manufacturer to see if they can add the support to the image.

    2. Manually adding this is going to be a challenge. Simply put the Photoscreensaver.scr into the c:\windows\system32 folder and see of that works. If it works, great, but my concern is that components in WES7 are language neutral thus a language pack might have to be re-added to make it work, which makes going back to the ThinClinet manufacturer the better path.

    Edit - I just checked my WES7 build tool and the screen saver is language neutral.
