  • To deploy the screensaver to multiple laptops/PCs, please ask your IT team to set up a Group Policy to deploy an MSI Package (which contains our Screensaver executable file and the relevant configuration settings).
  • To customise the logo, please ask your IT team to either manually update a PC or set up a Group Policy.

Single PC Install Guide:

  1. Download the zip file - https://www.digitalcomms.nz/downloads/vibescreensaver.1.2.0.zip
  2. Extract the zipped file contents
  3. Run the setup.exe file

    Note: If the 'Windows protected your PC' message appears, select 'More Info' and click the 'Run anyway' button. 
  4. Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete your installation.

  5. When the installation is complete, search for "screen saver" in the Windows start menu and open the screen saver settings in the Control panel (e.g. "Change screen saver").
  6. In the Screen Saver Settings dialog:
    1. Open Settings...

    2. Enter your Webview/Screensaver URL and [Save]

      Note: Your Webview/Screensaver URL would have been provided to your Vibe team at the time of original setup/training. Your paid Vibe Subscription tier will dictate access to this URL.
    3. Adjust the 'Wait' setting to suit your requirements

    4. Click [OK]
  • For single PC
    Create a transparent PNG and use "logo.png" as the filename. Copy the logo into the custom folder:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\VibeScreensaver\custom
  • To update multiple PCs using group policy
    • File path for the the custom logo is stored in this registry node value:
      Computer > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > VibeScreenSaver > CustomLogo
    • The file path can be either a local file path (e.g. C:/logo.png) or a remote URL (e.g. https://yourdomain.co.nz/logo.png). If remote URL is used, it must be publicly accessible.
    • You can create a Windows group policy to set the CustomLogo's value to the remote URL for multiple PCs.

Considerations

In your Power Options settings - Set 'Turn off the display' to Never so the screensaver is visible onscreen when your PC is not in use.

Mac

To install the screensaver on multiple company-owned devices, please discuss 'Group Policy setup' with your IT team.

  2. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file.
  3. Double-click (Open) the WebViewScreenSaver.saver file and choose to install it.
  4. Open up System Preferences > Desktop and Screen Saver > Screen Saver
  5. Select "WebViewScreenSaver" (It'll be at the bottom of the Screen Savers list.)
  6. Press "Screen Saver Options" and enter the URL you have been supplied (I.e. https://demo.vibe.fyi/screensaver) and the duration they should show for in minutes.
