    Hi.
    I'm not using any converter right now. I was just going to search on the net for a converter. I assume you recommend Swish studio.

    Hi!
    Basically
    1] Create new file.sws

    while making the .swf
    Select AutoPlay and Uncheck Loop Playback options [in the play back group]

    2] Publish as Screen saver;

    3] Select the PUBLISH tab and press the Screen Saver (.SCR) button.

    4] Select the Install Screen saver on Publish option

    For NT, 2000, XP...if you areNOT using an Admin account
    leave this UNCHECKED

    5] Press the Publish.
    6] Press Test

    Does this help?...[just experiment a bit till you get the hang of it ]

    Hi Piki!
    not that i am recommending , just wanted to give a simple way of doing this.

    But as you dont use Flash often, you can try the .swf to .scr converters which are just a few mouse clicks away...and it's DONE!

    Good Luck!
