  • If I make a screensaver for someone do they have to have 2Flyer program to see it?

  • How can I share a screensaver with my family and friends?

A created screensaver installation file is a normal file. You can copy/delete/rename it like any other file on your hard drive. 1) You can send a screensaver by email as an attachment (Use Outlook Express or other email programs); 2) You can upload it to a website (Use CuteFTP or other similar FTP programs), then tell people the download URL; 3) You can burn (copy) the screensaver to a CD-ROM. To copy a screensaver to a CD-ROM, like any other file, you will need of a CD burner device (a CD recorder) and a CD burner software (like Nero, EasyCD Creator or similar). Please refer to your CD recorder documentation for details about this issue making CDs.

  • How can I change  a screensaver I created?

Screensaver .exe files cannot in themselves, be changed, but they can be overwritten with new or updated versions. This is why we offer the ScreenSaver .fly project files, which store the information on how a saver is made.

Here is how to do it:

  1. When you build your screensaver, make sure you save the project file as well (function key F4).
  2. When you need to change the saver, simply load the project file (F3).
  3. Alter the saver to your tastes.
  4. Either save (F4) the altered project file, or alternatively save as (F5) to create a different version of an existing saver.
  5. Build the saver. If you choose to give the new screensaver the same name as the old one, 2Flyer will ask if you want to overwite the existing saver .exe, answer 'yes' or 'ok'.

Voila! Your new screensaver is ready to install.

  • Why can I only see "Build Failed" information when click the Build button?

If you see this error when building a screensaver installation, please try to disable / turn off your Anti-Virus or other system monitor software temporarily, and then click the "OK" button to continue.

  • The display of screensaver is incorrect in some guess accounts?

Please try to add appropriate permissions to the account to access "Windows -> Temp folder"; or build the screensaver as .scr format. Some special types of screensavers need to load media files from Windows temporarily folder.

  • I want "a new feature" implemented in 2Flyer. Can you please do it?

Please email to 2flyer@2flyer.com for your suggestion. Suggestions to improve 2Flyer are always welcome!

  • Will screensavers created with 2Flyer work on an Apple Macintosh?

No, sorry. They will work only on Microsoft Windows 32bit based PCs.

  • I registered 2Flyer but screensavers I built still claim to be "unregistered", why?

Once you create a screensaver it is a totally autonomous piece of software. It is totally independent from the software which created it. This also applies to for the registration status. This means that once you register 2Flyer, you have to rebuild all the screensavers you built before you typed in the registration code. This will be a quick job if you save the screensaver project for each screensaver as you make them.
