Support Request: sitecaster as windows screensaver

Description

I am trying use sitecaster as windows screensaver, and all I get is the sitecaster screen. the machine I'm testing on has sitekiosk installed on it 9.7.0.5026 and is registered to our siteremote server, and I can successfully deploy the sitecaster project to it. I verified that in c:\public\sitekiosk\cmscontent the content is all there. I verified if I "start sitekiosk" then sitecaster works as expected. I browsed through the forums and it sounds like sitecaster can be used for a screen saver, but maybe it only works through sitekiosk?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello,

Thank you for submitting your inquiry. You cannot run the new SiteCaster CMS screen saver outside of SiteKiosk. Based on the screenshot, it looks like you selected the old Digital Signage screensaver in the Windows screensaver settings. What did you select in the screensaver options in SiteKiosk configuration? Just take a look here: SiteKiosk Configuration>>Screensaver>> (Options) 1. SiteCaster (your pick) 2. Start Page 3. SiteKiosk Player. See section 1 at link: https://www.provisio.com/helpconsole/SiteKiosk%20Help/en-US/screen_saver___2nd_monitor.htm. If this did not work for you, please let me know.

Best regards,
Andre.
