"controlss not running" - can't implement editor

Postby leehopkins » Tue Dec 09, 2014 5:01 pm

I love the idea of being able to launch an editor directly from the screensaver. Every time I hit my assigned key to launch my editor I get "controlss is not running". Any suggestions?

ControlSS is an utility installed by gPhotoShow Pro, in order to launch the editor while the screen saver is running ControlSS must be running. This is required by the security enforcements of Windows, depending on windows settings and version if a program is started directly by a screen saver it will be closed automatically by windows when the screen saver exits. To avoid this gPhotoShow sends a command to ControlSS to start the editor.

Than Gianpaolo, with your suggestion I was able to search for the app, run it, find it in the notifications area and set it to automatically run. Problem solved.
