More information:
First Extract the file to your VB Project Templates folder (usually "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Template\Projects") and then, when you next go "New Project", the itm "Screen Saver" will appear at the end of the list. If you create a "Screen Saver" project, It will be a fully functional screen-waster, loading a picture and displaying it, but it gives a basis to work up from.

It creates 3 forms and a module. Those 3 forms are the preview window, settings window and main screen saver. The module simply loads the appropriate form. All you have to change is what the forms actually draw on the screen, and the LoadSettings and SaveSettings Sub's of the module.
