  1. im doing everything right i ran the Dreamscene.exe as an administrator and then i restarted my computer….but i looked at a video it was about 2mb and was in wmv format…..i right clicked….and the option of using it as my background wasnt there!!!

  2. I run the exe file as an administrator, but the black MS DOS window simply bounces telling me I need to run it as an administrator. Which is what I am doing.

  3. Before you post something , make sure you are indeed running as an administrator. RIGHT click on the file and say “RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR” . Also make sure the user you are using has both the “users” and “administrators” groups attached to them . if in doubt right click on “computer” and goto manage . Edit the user in question. This works like a charm on windows 7 and vista. Tested in SEVERAL different environments.

  4. If u folks haven’t yet sorted it out. You’ll find that you haven’t loaded it correctly. Any file links that you may have downloaded whether from ýoutube’ or where eva just make sure you download the files to your desktop. Delete anything your having trouble with restart computer and start again. Go to youtube look this guy up ‘TDK3wCompHelp’ read everything he does properly and I do mean read…It will take you no longer than 20mins if not less. And u 2 will enjoy the amazing effects it brings to your comp. It not only works. It really works. I’m not here to waste your time. So rest assure this should help you immensely.
