Created screensaver will use Edge/Chromium as the rendering engine if available or fallback to Internet Explorer engine.
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 119” means Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime version 119.
We strongly recommend installing Evergreen WebView2 Runtime from Microsoft website on every computer where screensaver will be deployed, so screen saver could use the latest Edge/Chromium as the rendering engine. High chances are it is already present on Windows 10 and 11. Note: WebView2 Runtime version 109 is the final version that supports Windows 7 and 8/8.1.
