    Windows 8 64-bit


    Sadly no Same thing, it installs, I go into settings and point it to my album art folder, but when I apply it, it just says 'None' under Screensaver. I'm using Win 8 64 bit, maybe that's why? Did u select 'Run As Administrator' when u installed?

    Let me try it again and I'll try to capture a step by step. I am using Win 8.1 x64 on my test machine right now. I'll be back.

    OK, when the screensaver menu auto popped up, I saw the art album there; however, I selected a different screensaver and hit apply and then I went back and selected the art album one and "apply" appeared. Selected apply. Done.
