Screen Saver can not run error RRS feed

  • Question

  • We deployed screen saver in my organisation. Screen saver was created by a video file. Size is around 20+ MB.

    After deployment some of the machine pops up below error.

    The screen saver can not run because of on of the following reason:

    * The file is corrupted

    * Your computer is out of resources

    *Windows Error

    What would be the reason for above, Is there any limitation for size of screen saver?

    How did you deploy the screen saver with video?

As of January 10, 2017, Windows Essentials 2012 is no longer supported on Windows 10, and is unavailable for download.”

    Windows Essentials:
