[Screensaver] Problem (Solved)

This is the error I get: egbf52.jpg

 

I started getting this error from Koi Fish screensaver.

 

Also when bubbles are run as a screensaver I don't see the desktop I get a black background.

 

Any ideas on how to fix both?

to solve Error code 740 try to run elevated

and for bubbles if you are in Windows 10 is possible you need a wrapper like DDraw compat, put the wrapper next to the .scr. I dont know if ddrawcompact hooks with .scr only i had try with exes

I purchased the other four (4) Koi screensavers and they work with no errors.

I solved the problem.

 

I changed the directory install folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Koi Fish 3D Screensaver to C:\Program Files (x86)\Koi Fish 3D Screensavers and it works correctly now.
