My old windows 98 pc had a screensaver called 'travel' which featured an old fashioned plane flying about. Does anyone know of any where I can download this from and get it to run with Windows XP?

Quite right - it was. I though I might be able to go to Microsoft site and download a version for XP but doesn't look like it. Anyone have any ideas ............?

Note that you may have to download Visual Basic from the link on the download 'screensaver doesn't work'.

Make sure you read ALL the small print before you install and use it.

I have the very same running on my older PC (WinMe). If someone can direct me to the file I would be happy to send to Carafaraday if possible.

Sounds ominous - what is hidden in the small print?

I do still have original win98 cd and tried to find any .scr files on it with no luck - am I doing something very wrong? I thought they might be compressed or something (actually I don't really know much about it as you may have gathered!).

Thank you, Wotbus. I appreciate the warning - I don't think I'll go there!

Canrad - I have managed to locate the file on the old hard drive and have copied it to cd - unfortunately it doesn't seem to work with XP - the screen just goes dark!

Think i may just have to live without it..
