Edge requires WebView2 Runtime, which is included in operating system starting with Windows 11. Microsoft also began rolling out WebView2 Runtime to Windows 10 consumer devices starting with 27 June 2022.
We recommend installing Evergreen WebView2 Runtime from Microsoft website on every computer where screensaver will be deployed. Otherwise screensaver would use Internet Explorer as the rendering engine if it is not available.
To check what rendering engine screensaver uses:
- On computer where Live Screensaver Creator is installed: Open the app, click “About” button at the bottom, then click “Browser engine” button at the bottom
- On computer where screensaver will be deployed: Use parameters “/s /engine” when starting screensaver, e.g. test.scr /s /engine
This will display rendering engine name and its version.
For example “IE 11” means Internet Explorer version 11 and “Edge 104” means Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime version 104.
