I'm trying to get old screen savers working in Windows 10, but I ran into some problems. When the screensaver just has an *.scr file, it works fine, but I've run across some other screensavers that apparently have both an *.scr file AND a *.dll file. When I try to drop one of those in the System32 folder, Windows sees the *.scr file, but it doesn't do anything it's just a black screen.
For reference, I discovered this index of old screensavers that I was looking at. Take, for example, "Baseball," which has a baseball.dll file. http://cs.gettysburg.edu/~duncjo01/archive/sc … /windows/95&98/
Is there some trick to getting these dll screensavers to work, or is there no hope on a modern windows?
