I want to display Screen Saver every 10 seconds as long as the user doesn't make anything on his computer.

I did that :-

WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE
declare
	t timer;
begin
	t:= create_timer('Hany',10000,repeat);
end;



WHEN-TIMER-EXPIRED
if :System.MODE = 'NORMAL' then
	Host('C:\WINDOWS\system32\ssmypics.scr');
End if;



but in RunTime the Screen Saver's Setting appear not the Screen Saver itself ..... like shown below :-

that's seems weird because when I run the Screen Saver directly from Start>>RUN :-
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ssmypics.scr
it is working nice without appearing of the setting.

so, what's went wrong ????

I attached the fmb file to have a look for it if you like.

Can you make this work from a batch script or a VB program?
