Compile an installable Screensaver package (EXE file)

Once your project is created, you must compile your screensaver in order to be installed on the end-user computer. The file that will be created is compatible with Windows Screensavers. But this file is not easy to install on a computer for a beginner. That's why we strongly recommend you to create an installation package. Furthermore, a few additional options are available when you compile an installation package.

During this process, the project will be compiled as a temporary SCR file and it will be compressed and included in an easy-to-use installation package (EXE file).

Once created, the EXE/SCR file can't be modified or decompiled. Save your project and don't loose your SSP file. Using this compilation method you can create demo/limited versions of your screensavers.
