Cylon Datastream on Windows 10

Greetings.

https://www.screensaversplanet.com/screensavers/cylon-datastream-1491/

For this, I used it, years ago. In 2014, I moved on to using Linux Mint.

I have purchased a new Windows 10 machine and wish to use this screensaver. A review from July of 2019 reports it won't launch in Windows 10.

My question is, now that it has been a year and 2 months, will this launch in Windows 10, now? I have the runtime file, needed.

Considering all of the updates and feature releases. I don't see how it could not run in Windows 10 a this point. But, then again, this IS Windows, after-all.

Thank you.

  • I've just tested it to work on a Windows 10 machine, but only after installing the Microsoft XNA Framework 4.0 that's included in the ZIP file.

    So yes, it should work, and I'm not sure why it didn't work for the one reviewer.

    Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you, too.

  • Thank you so much! My unit is not assembled, right now. But, once I assemble it in its final spot, I'll give it a test run. I hope it works. The unit has a Ryzen processor and would be a downer if it doesn't happen to operate. I'll update this with my results after I test it on my machine.

  • I assembled the unit. this morning, installed both files and tried it out.

    IT WORKS!

    Thank you, again.

    My build is, now, complete. (unit, of course, my next thought comes up.)

  • Terrific! Thanks for reporting back, and enjoy the screensaver (and the unit).

    Good choice for the CPU, I have a Ryzen 5 1600 in my machine.

  • (I just wish there was a version usable in Linux Mint. :\ Oh well. :) )
