Windows 95 screensaver on XP

I've acquired a new PC with XP Home edition. Previously I was on 95 and had the Plus pack and would dearly love to use a screensaver from that package - I know, sad - but the Plus disk went with the old PC. I have the .scr and .dll files which I have put into WINDOWS\system 32 folder, but no good. All I get is a blank screen. Has anyone else done this successfully, please.

I just remembered that I have a 95Plus CD and tried to install the two screensavers I found on it. They do work. I rightclicked the file and did choose 'install' from the context menu.

Thanks guys. I tried the install option but no luck. Guess I've got a corrupt copy or something.

You wouldn't happen to have a Win98SE Plus CD would you? I'm DYING to get a screensaver I used to have, that was on that disc - Cityscape, as I recall ...

you rock!!

I actually got the hookup from Nedreplan (I posted in the "Other Operating Systems" forum) but after an unfortunate incident involving my own stupidity and not reading a readme, lol, I was forced to reformat/reinstall, losing all the stuff he had sent me :) :D

Anyway I didn't want to bug him about it again, so thank you for the attachment!! I love this screensaver, don't know why exactly, it's not spectacular or anything ... hehe

Thanks again!!! :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
