Zoom not working

Post by gpenny » Sat Feb 07, 2015 4:58 pm

When I run the slideshow the zoom function works fine but when I create a standalone screen saver from the slideshow the zoom function does not work when the screen saver is launched - have I missed a setting?

DirectX transitions and Pan&zoom require DirectX and one of the DirectX components is not part of the basic DirectX setup included in all recent windows versions.
For this reason if you deploy the slideshow on the target system without using the installer it may not work as expected. The correct way to deploy a standalone slideshow is to create the installer using gPhotoShow and InnoSetup, then use this installer to distribute the slideshow/screen saver.
