Re: an error is preventing this slide show from playing
Could you provide some information about your system? Memory, Processor and
most important of your Video card?

In order to see your slide show with high-quality visuals (including themes
and transitions), you need to have a subscore of 3.0 for the Graphics
category in the Windows Experience Index. Some themes also require your
computer’s graphics card to have a feature called Vertex Shader 2.0. To take
advantage of all slide show capabilities, you might need to upgrade to a
more powerful graphics card.

Re: an error is preventing this slide show from playing

I have also been receiving this error for about 3 weeks.
it worked for 2 months before that
I tried updating my Drivers
they were a version from 6/14/2007
To try and solve the problem I completely
uninstalled the drivers rebooted then
Installed the Update from oct 11 2007.

The screen saver is still broken.



I have a score of Graphics Score of 4.8
Toshiba P200 4GB Memory, ATI Mobility 2600 HD.

RE: an error is preventing this slide show from playing
I had this problem and another, after failing to find a solution to this I
moved on to the next and it fixed both my problems. Problem I fixed was
Server Execution Faild, with a red "X" over the icon. This is what I
did....Simply run a command prompt as an administrator (right-click on it and
click "Open as Administrator") then enter the following command line:

net localgroup "Administrators" "NT Authority\Local Service" /add
