    ^Someone gave a workaround for that:
    1) Set Folder Options to Show hidden files, folders...

    2) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background.

    3) Right-click on desktop > Personalize > Desktop Wallpaper.

    4) Select the hidden *.jpg.

    5) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background again.

    You are correct. It does work without the error after running as an administrator

    Thank you

    Default .dream files are unknown

    I've been able to right click and successfully add and use .wmv and .mpg files as a desktop but can not figure out how to use .dream files. They do not appear in the load DreamScene file loader nor is there an option to load up .dream files using right click.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you for this app, I was expecting Win 7 to do this.. doh.

    "Windows DreamScene can't run as your desktop is now configured.

    Windows DreamScene cannot run because the computer is currently using more than one video adapter."

    I get this every time I try to set a .wmv as a background.

    Does this not work if you have multiple video cards?

    A tidbit:

    Windows DreamScene may not work, if "Show Translucent selection rectangle" option is disabled from System Properties (Performance Settings).

    This tool doesn't work with .dream files. .dream files are only supported by Stardock DeskScape.

    "Windows DreamScene can't run as your desktop is now configured" - This error appears because you have unchecked "Show translucent selection rectangle" in Advanced System Settings -> Performance -> Settings

    Windows DreamScene cannot run because the computer is currently using more than one video adapter." - This error appears because you are using more than one graphics card.

    Unhappy But, Your Website Says DreamScene IS Supported...

    But the website says "you can use any video, Windows format or dreamscene, as a desktop background." I believe it is your own website, Mr. Bagaria. Did you mis-speak, or am I misunderstanding that a dreamscene is not the same as a .dream file?
