Help on Download & Installation
– Step one – download and save
First click the above “Download Now” button or this button.
You may be asked if you want to save the file or run it from its current location. If you are asked this question, select “Save.” If not, don’t worry — some browsers will automatically choose “Save” for you.
(Note: The exact wording of the download screens will vary depending on your version of Windows and browser.)
You will then be asked to select the folder where you want to save the program or file, using a standard “Save As” dialog box. Note & remember which folder you select before clicking the “Save” button. You can save this file to your desktop to make it easy to find it after the download is completed. It may help you to create a folder like “C:\Downloads” for all of your downloads, but you can use any folder you’d like.
If you get a “Security Warning – Unknown Publisher” message, you may safely ignore this as Vista Creative is the publisher, and you are downloading directly from the Vista Creative site. The software contains no spyware, adware or viruses.
The download will now begin. Your web browser will keep you updated on the progress of the download by showing a progress bar that fills up as you download. The file will be saved as “C:\Downloads\XXXSetup.exe”.
Note: You may also see a check box labeled “Close this dialog box when download completes.” If you see this check box, it helps to uncheck this box. You don’t have to, but if you do, it will be easier to find the file after you download it.
– Step two – install Software
Depending on how fast your connection is, it may take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to download. When your download is finished, if you left that “Close this dialog box when download completes” option unchecked, you’ll see a dialog box.
Now click the “Open” button to run the file you just downloaded. At this point the installation program for the file will launch, so just follow the on-screen instructions from there to install the screensaver on your computer. If you don’t see the “Download complete” dialog box, just open the folder where you saved the file and double-click on the icon for the file there.
