Can't validate after validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • A strange one....

     

    I downloaded the Video Screensaver application from the MS web site,
    part of which involved validating my Vista installation before I was
    allowed to download which went without problem.

     

    I then ran the video screensaver.msi installation program which wants
    me to validate again. This time I get the message;

     

    Validation is not currently supported for this version of Windows or
    for this non-Microsoft operating system.
    It appears that you are using an operating system that is not
    currently supported by the validation process. Only the following
    operating systems are currently supported:

    Windows XP Home Edition
    Windows XP Professional
    Windows XP Starter Edition
    Windows XP Media Center Edition
    Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
    Windows Vista

     

    What is going on? I am running Vista and it says I am not having just validated it about a minute previously.

     

    One minute I pass validation so I can download the program and the next I fail and can't install the program.

     

    How can I fix this?

  • Hello anparkinson,

     

     Thank you for bringing this to my attention!   I had requested that this screensaver be removed from the Micrsosoft Download site (and it had been) but it appears that it has been re-posted, for some reason . I had it removed because, as you can tell, it has a bug in it's internal Validation code.  I will look into this and have removed again.

     

    Again, I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you,
