DreamScene Activator by Kishan-Bagaria DreamScene Activator by Kishan-Bagaria

Download Link



DreamScene Activator is a freeware from door2windows that allows you to activate DreamScene in all editions of Windows 7 & Vista. This freeware is the only freeware on the net that has the desktop text bug fixed.

DreamScene is a feature that allows users to set any video in WMV/MPG format as the desktop wallpaper. This feature was only included in Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.

How to use:

  1. Run the tool as administrator.

  2. Click the slider. Wait until it says ON.

  3. Right-Click on any video in WMV/MPG format and select Set as DreamScene.
If you run this app for the first time then restart your PC. Now the video that you selected will be set as the desktop wallpaper.

You can find nice DreamScenes here.

uhm, can someone help me? My text on the icons get transparent and it WON'T go back to normal, no matter what technique I use.
I already tried setting it to 'fill'
I already tried going to AppData and into the folder 'dreamscenes', making the hidden image unhidden and to read only. Setting both to Desktop Background and also setting to fill.
Nothing works, seriously.

i just downloaded it and installed it with no problem whatsoever, i rebooted and then started it as admin, no error messages, and then i set a WMV video as Dreamscene, but it doesnt play, my desktop is just black, and the "play Dreamscene" is greyed out, ive tried with a 56 second WMV, a 26 and a 6 second, none of them works, im running Windows 7 64bit Ultimate.

EDIT: nevermind, rebooting my PC again fixed it it seems like...
awesome program runs smooth(once i got it to work XD)

Any chance for a version not hosted by someone trying to install malware with the installer? It's trying to install a shit load of it.

The current method isn't working with Windows 8, didn't investigate why. If a tutorial for W8 crops up anywhere, I'll make an app.

Alright cool. There is a program for it;

But it's not great, very laggy and the desktop icons get messed up.

That's not DreamScene. It's some app someone made which changes the wallpaper constantly to frames of the video which explains why it isn't stable. DreamScene was developed by Microsoft for Windows Vista.

You can even try this: www.howtogeek.com/howto/18167/…

I've actually tried that but I couldn't get it to work for some reason. It would never apply to my desktop and I honestly have no idea why.

Do you have any opinion on Deskscape 8 by Stardock?

Thanks for the info and help ^^.

This tool is not the best way, better is what is used for Not Vista Ultimate versions that is more complete, its true there is the desktop text bug on W7, but just use hibernation and the problem disappear. It adds two new entry to the context menu of the desktop: "Play DreamScene " and " Pause DreamScene " with original dremascene icon and the item on contextual menu video WMV / MPG "Set as Desktop backgraund " all as those original of Vista ultimate.

This didn't work for me, at all. Just thought I'd say. I'm running windows 7 and had MPG files ready to go, but not one had the Set as background option.

Just a question, I'm a PC gamer, I just installed this and it's fantastic, the only problem for me is that when I play games like Skyrim for example that uses up a lot of video memory, and sadly I have just 1Gb of memory available, I can't afford to run DreamScene while playing, so is there a way to disable and enable it again without restarting my computer?

Hi ~aLxv1, have a read here: [link].

They say that Dreamscene is rendered via your GPU and also that is becomes inactive when using fullscreen apps or programs.
Reply
:iconalxv1:
aLxv1 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
Thanks, I understand that while in fullscreen mode the usage of CPU&GPU stops but there's still a more or less 15% of my GPU memory used even when stopped, and that's somewhat inconvenient.
