Mouse Jiggler doesn't run

I recently downloaded the Mouse Jiggler executable and installed the .NET framework, but when I run the executable, even as administrator, nothing seems to run. (The cursor does turn to an hourglass for a second before going back to a cursor.) The Task Manager shows no process called Mouse Jiggler.

Is there anything I might be doing wrong?

Apologies for not being able to provide much more in the way of details. I'm happy to provide more if it would help. I appreciate any help.

  • Hi Peter,

    Did you download it from the site here, or somewhere else? I just tried the version we're hosting (1.8.42.0) on a Windows 7 machine and it worked just fine. The latest version, however, which is 2.0.25.0, would not work. As you describe, after double-clicking the file the hourglass shows momentarily but nothing happens.

    Here's a direct link to version 1.8.42.0 here on Screensavers Planet:
    https://www.screensaversplanet.com/files/software/651-MouseJiggle.exe

    So while version 2.0.25.0 does work on Windows 10 and newer, it won't work on Windows 7. The main difference between 1.8 and 2.0 is that 2.0 depends on version 5 of the .NET framework, which was not created with Windows 7 in mind.

    Failing that, you could also try a similar program, such as No Screen Saver.

  • Thank you very much! I did indeed download version 2.0.25.0 and install .NET 5 just for this application (using Win 7). The older version you linked to works well, even with .NET 5. I appreciate the help.
