Objectives

Its only a small step from a runtime version to a screensaver. What should be noted is now explained. This description is only for Windows systems!

Export

As already explained, export the clock as runtime version is the first step.

Rename

After export, the file must be renamed, the extension of the name is changing from exe to scr, so the compete name is now berlin-clock.scr.

Testing the screensaver

One dobbleclick is starting the screensaver. Unlike the runtime version, the screensaver is switching to a full window.

Activate the screensaver

To make the screensaver selectable in the system control of Windows, all files of the screensaver must be moved to the system folder (not only berlin-clock.scr).

If it is a 64-Bit system to the folder:

C:/Windows/SysWOW64

Tree files marked with a * are always available, this files could while copying be ommited.

This is the list of file names:

vcomp120.dll *
msvcr120.dll *
msvcp120.dll *
avcodec-55.dll
avdevice-55.dll
avformat-55.dll
avutil-52.dll
berlin-clock.scr
BlendThumb64.dll
libsndfile-1.dll
msvcp120.dll
msvcr120.dll
OpenAL32.dll
OpenColorIO.dll
pthreadVC2.dll
python35.dll
SDL2.dll
swscale-2.dll
vcomp120.dll

The list again as image ...

Now the berlin-clock should be available in the system control and after the activation it looks like the following picture:
