Compile an installable screen saver 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 will be compatible with Windows screen savers. You can choose to create an installation package (strongly recommended).

During this compilation process, the project will first be compiled as a SCR file. Then, this file will be compressed and included in an easy-to-use installation package.
