Got an ACER Laptop running Windows 7 to replace very old HP XP Laptop with Dream Aquarium screensaver.

My problem is that although I have a copy of DA on disc there does not spear to be an installer. I've searched all over the old laptop and cannot find the installer.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you still have the activation number you may be able to down load it from CLICK HERE

Hi BRYNIT, no I don't have the activation number. I think it was a trial version from PC Adviser many years ago. The program worked from the download but is very limited, save only one tank and restricted to the number of fish. Any changes can't be saved.

What are the files you have including the file extensions.

If the are xxx.scr you don't need to install them.

Hi alanrwood, there are 2 .scr files one 92KB the other 321KB. now I clicked on one and got the message "Dream Aquariam not properly installed" and the other "couldn't find registry A Dream Aquarium not properly installed - couldn't open registry couldn't cd to install dir" The Registry folder contains: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEYCLASSESROOT.SCR] [HKEYCLASSESROOT.SCR] @="scrfile"

I'm surprised to learn that anyone still uses a screensaver.

Me too but my wife liked her Fish Tank she says it soothing.

Message to Forum Editor. I was just wondering if you new what issue the DA was issued. My DVD record goes back to only issue 163 Feb 2009.
