Install Windows XP default screensavers

By HereInOz ·
Hi All,

I have a task to re-install a batch of HP computers which are no longer required by the company and which are to be sold. I have been given an XP installation disk, which installs OK, we then change the product code to match what is on the sticker, validate, and all is well.

The trouble is that the CD I have been given does not install any screensavers, only "none", and "blank", and to sell the machines they want screensavers installed. It looks like the CD has been created with WinLite, and this function has been turned off.

I can't see how I can install the screensavers after the system has been installed :-( Does anyone know how we can install the Windows XP default screensavers in this situation?

Hope you can assist.

or extract them from a full installation disk. (Chances are you will have to Expand them if pulled off an installation disk.)

Found/placed in /system32 directory.

Thanks for that. Didn't realise it would be that simple.

Cheers.

It should be straightforward

for the default screensavers. It's when you get into the PlusPack and OpenGL screensavers that you start needing other files.
