I have asked about this before, but I thought I would try one more time. I used to have an animated screensaver where a boat comes toward the computer screen, then turns away, and an animated slalom skier comes toward the screen. The skier then turns away and leaves a large wall of spray. The spray then turns into the words MASTERCRAFT. The screensaver is at least 10+ years old. Does anybody out there have it? If you do, I really would like to get a copy. I had a hard drive fail and could not recover it. Unfortunately, I did not have it backed up. Mastercraft does not have it either.

Okay, so I suck at computers. I have downloaded it, but how do I make it work. I try to open the item, but then it asks if I want to unzip it. When I do...nothing happens.

HElp!

you unzip it should yield a file called MC.exe

double click should install it

Worked for me. Little fast though. Of course that could be because my computer is old.:rolleyes:

what operating system do you have? If I remember correctly, it only worked on Windows 95 or 98.

I found this and used Ryan's link he posted and then used 88 PS190 instructions that he posted following up Ryan's post.

I'll be waiting for a workable copy! I had it on a work computer 10 years ago and it came off a floppy disc and I don't know what ever happend to it.

I don't understand why it would run on Vista and not XP. Even my IT guy can't get it to run.

2000 and xp are not the same. The newest version of Adobe shockwave will not run on 2000 but it will on xp vista 95 and 98.

Its not hard, I believe that is the repaired version, it is possible that I messed it up and named the file wrong.

The trick is that on a Windows XP computer you require a file titled Autoexec.nt I believe, I might need to go back and look.

This file allows running back compatable things, like this screen saver etc. in windows 95/98 compatibility mode. You then double click on the file and it installs to the disk.

And yes windows 2000 is an odd ball, but many love it.

If you click start, search and type autoexec and search and cannot find it, then you will not be able to run this program.

Again if you do not feel extremely confident in your computer skillz I would not go meddling with sort of thing. It is possible to cause some problems with your computer, I used to have two copies of that file, and one would really mess up my computer when it was on there, so I would have to boot to safe mode and remove it to restart my computer.

Just went to the link to download and received the following error message: :(

"The download limit has been reached for this file."

Anyway for someone to open a new link or PM me the file?

Greatly Appreciated - MIMC (Lee)

How did you get it to work?

88 PS190
02-20-2008, 11:29 PM
ya I can, its a free file host which means it only allows a certain number of downloads.

here's a fresh one for you.

I got it to work on XP, but since I DL'd it, Outlook has been crashing. I deleted the file, and Outlook went back to normal.

I started this thread. It really is a great screensaver. Can't someone get it to work? I have downloaded the repaired file and get a little motion picture icon like I remember having before, but it won't run. I hate to sound nuerotic, but it seems like someone could figure it out. I know you guys are some of the smartest around!

Maybe our good friends at MasterCraft will have a new screensaver made with the 08 boats???????

Nothing like waking up to a MasterCraft show on my computer screen after I fall asleep at work.

Sounds like the kind of download that does a crash and burn! I am not a computer guy so what do I know. Sounds great but not worth the risk?
