Can I confirm you are running the very latest version, 4.2.1 Beta?

I've just checked this version in Vista and it appears to work fine.

OK, my mistake - I've checked again and it DOESN'T work fine...

I have a possible fix - can you try renaming the screensaver file, from FlickrNetScreensaver.scr to something shorter, like FlickNet.scr (must be in old 8+3 format). You'll then likely have to reinstall the screensaver (right click on it and choose "Install").

I'll try this as well when I get home.

okay i noticed that screensaver uses options when i press preview but not when it starts automatically.

Good news - I think I've solved the problem. If you copy the files (FlickrNetScreensaver.scr, FlickrNet.dll and log4net.dll) into the C:\WINDOWS directory then everything should work fine in Vista.

Just a thought here. Those files should go into Windows\System32.
