Windows Vista Slideshow Themes
My Computer has a subscore of 3.0 (the minimum requirement for Windows
SlideShow) yet I cannot access the full collection of themes. Does anyone
know if there is a minimum requirement above 3.0 to access the full scope of
themes?

Re: Windows Vista Slideshow Themes
Hi Trent,

WinSAT score of 3.0 should make the theme controls available. Perhaps you may try boosting the score virtually by setting it to 400 (4.0). See this blog entry:

Re: Windows Vista Slideshow Themes
Thanks for the help. I succesfully set the score to 400 (4.0) and the
controls appeared, but the themes Album, Collage, Frame, Glass, Spin, Stack
and Travel were nonexistent. I then set the score to 500 (5.0) and the themes
listed above didn't appear. I'm unceartain as to whether or not my graphics
card has "Vector Shader 2.0"....so that might have something to do with the
problem.

Trent,

What's the make and model of the graphics card you're using. Can find out if it supports "Vector Shader 2.0" by checking the manufacturer's site.
