Ok here's my problem

I need to start a scr file from within a program called medi8or

If I just link to the SCR file i come into the screensavers configuration, but I just want to start i up right away

It has something to do with

Screen.scr
"%1" /S
C&onfigure %1
&Install rundll32.exe desk.cpl,InstallScreenSaver %l

I only have a program box and a parametre box

Please include how I should use the " " signs

How do I do this my friends?
Need a quick answer please - giving away many points :)

Why not try this:

In the program box : start
in the parametre box : <complete path to scr-file>
like (c:\windows\channels.scr)
This works in win95
Hope this help

BTW
if the complete path to scr-file contains spaces, then put the " sign before and after.
This also works in win95.

"D:\South Park\Screensavers\South Park 3D Spectacular!.scr" -start
