"Watery Desktop 3D Live Wallpaper and Screensaver"

Systeemvereisten: Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update (KB2670838)
Deze update is van 23 feb 2013 en de update is op te halen bij:
https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/kb/2670838
Even verder staat een waarschuwing:
Compatibiliteitsproblemen op bepaalde computers met hybride-videokaarten
en daaronder een rij met type, waarmee de problemen bekend zijn.

Ik heb het GOTD-programma geïnstalleerd in Win10-x64 Pro met de Intelvideo van de CPU en een Nvidiakaart.
En het werkte.

De Setup is kort en snel zonder taalkeuze:

Off Topic: ik heb al drie jaar een Chromebook. Vooral gebruikt door mijn jongste zoon, als hij weer eens op bezoek is. Circa twee jaar geleden heb ik ChromiumOS eens bij wijze van proef op een oude machine gezet. Maar helemaal lekker liep het toch niet. Vanmiddag las ik in het Forum een tip over een implementatie van ChromiumOS van Cloudready:

http://links.giveawayoftheday.com/clark.com/revive-your-old-laptop-for-free-chromebook

en dat lijkt wel te werken. Mijn EeePC staat op de lijst van gecertificeerde machines en inderdaad: die is nu omgetoverd in een Chromebook. Mijn Asus V5 zou zelfs dual boot aankunnen.

Bij de eerste opstart was er een klacht dat de HD te weinig ruimte had. Dus die is kennelijk nog niet overschreveb.

I normally don't keep things like this. Typically it just takes up room and resources. However, this one has a rather nice effect, very clean and smooth. Doesn't make me change wallpaper to some junk for it to work, it just works. Keeps a notification in the bottom as a running up so it's easy to close out of. And while I haven't used a screensaver in...years (been so long I can't remember when I last had one), I really liked the dimming and the overall effect of it. Will keep this on

If it helps at all... maybe why today's GOTD won't work for everyone...

The graphics processor [GPU], depending on make & model, *may* do more than display what you see on screen. It may help with video encoding &/or decoding [playback], & usually has at least some support for parts of Direct X & *maybe* OpenGL [Vulkan], & often supports OpenCL [commonly used for non display related tasks].

Oversimplified, you might think of the Direct X & OpenGL/Vulkan end of things as sort of shortcuts -- instead of the CPU doing all sorts of long & slow calculations, the GPU is told basically to draw this, there. The problem or gotcha is that the graphics hardware may not be able to do everything that's asked of it, or it isn't powerful enough to do whatever fast enough.

Watery Desktop 3D Live Wallpaper and Screensaver uses those sorts of commands [what I just called shortcuts] to calculate & display the FX, so as not to slow down the PC or laptop, which you can still use normally. If the graphics hardware capabilities aren't there, e.g. in my Windows 7 VM, the wallpaper &/or screensaver just fails.

With mid-range to high end games, it's most often the graphics hardware that determines if the game is playable, how well, & with how many optional display features turned on. And the more you pay for graphics hardware, the more capabilities & performance you get. While every year sees improvements, GPUs that are part of the CPU package aren't generally all that powerful, & don't have anywhere near the capabilities of a $100-$200 [or more] add-on graphics card.

A gaming laptop won't usually have separate graphics hardware [like a graphics card in a PC], but basically the same components are added to the main board. When those added components are relatively marginal, &/or to save battery life, the added GPU & the built-in GPU may work together. And those systems are the ones that allegedly had fits with the Microsoft update KB2670838. support[.]microsoft[.]com/en-us/kb/2670838

Do note however that if you have a separate graphics card in your PC, it costs you to use it. When it's in a power-saving mode, like just reading this in your browser, it's using a minimal amount of electricity, & producing less heat. Using it to display animated wallpaper, or a DX screensaver, or gaming causes it to jump out of any power--saving mode, meaning more electrical watts used, more heat, & likely more fan noise to get rid of some of that heat. It's not a big deal -- you got the card to use it -- but if I'm not using this PC to do anything, & I'm away from my desk [so I'm not watching whatever screensaver], I figure I might as well save the electricity, and so don't have a screensaver like this running. With built-in graphics, e.g. my mini-PC, that's not much of an issue -- it's the more powerful add--on card in this PC that consumes much more power.

what's with this REQUiRED Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update (KB2670838) Microsoft Update?

A web search using the ubiquitous search engine: appears to suggest that this Update is either, an EViL UPDATE, or causes Blue Screen Of Death, or can't be installed without hassles.

Even CNET offers up an advisory ALERT about it: CNET > Forums > Spyware, Viruses, & Security > Be Careful About New Platform Update KB2670838 [https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/be-careful-about-new-platform-update-kb2670838-588559/]

As far as I can see it is only an update to allow for the installation of the now discontinued or superceded Internet Explorer 10.x

Peter C1  –  10 months ago  –  Vond je deze reactie nuttig? ja | nee (-2)

Peter C1, That update gives Windows 7 a lot of the whizzier graphics features of more recent Windows versions, so if someone is using those features then they either need to write their code differently for Win7, not support it, or require the extra libraries.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2670838

It's just newer graphics features, although it did cause issues for some people, especially if they had old graphics drivers as previously undiscovered bugs could come out.

It's not evil, or spyware, or a privacy violation, but it does have some risk of issues as it's providing features the O/S didn't have before (so having the latest driver for your graphics would be a good first step).

It's much more about supporting games better than IE10.
