    Auto Keylock Screensaver Hack?

    Hey guys,

    Ok, I am looking for some help. There's a cool little piece of software out there called AutoKey Lock that some of you are familiar with. Version 4.0 was just released and can be downloaded from the top of this page HERE.

    Now one thing that this program does NOT do, is allow you to designate your own photo for the screensaver -- it simply lets you set colors. Now, the creator gives some registry keys that can be edited at the bottom of the instruction page HERE.

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to play with this and figure out a way to have the program display a picture of your choosing in place of the generic color background for the screensaver... I don't know if it's an easy job or not -- but the creator having provided some registry edits seems that it may be the first step...

    This will be exciting to see if any progress comes about!

    ....unless, of course, there is software already out there that lets you add a screensaver with a picture of your choice to a WM5 QVGA (Moto Q) device....then that would be the ticket.


    Thanks,

    Matt!

    Ok,

    Look here. What version does that install as? If it's not it, it looks like the guy took the 4.0 link down for some reason... Let me know...

    Thanks,

    Matt!

    Hi,

    Check out the "last updated on" line. It's a bit confusing, but it looks like it was created on feb 27 but updated on sept 26 2007.
    Update:I installed it. It is version 4.0.

    aaah there you have it
    and yes that is kind of confusing
    a. it should have the version name of what you are downloading
    b. the date it was updated

    thanks!

    Hockey,

    Sorry about that - I was gonna mention the date difference thing, but I figured you installed it earlier today to confirm the version #.

    Scott,

    Let me know what you think though. On the first day, I wasn't to sure about it -- but now it's earned it's place in my Q's startup folder (next to right menu and photocontacts pro)


    (note: I only use photocontacts pro for the incoming pics -- i use agenda one for my contacts button -- lol)

    Later,

    Matt!
