As of this writing, if you have previously registered or upgraded to Screen Saver Construction Set 14, you can still upgrade to Screen Saver Construction Set 15 for half price. We are able to provide some limited support for the version 14 software, but it's becoming increasingly vulnerable to changes in Windows and some third-party security products.

If you have previously registered Screen Saver Construction Set 14 and you need to download the final release to reinstall your software, please contact us for a download link. Be sure to include your Screen Saver Construction Set 14 registration name and key.

Screen Saver Construction Set 2 through 12 have reached thir ends-of-life, and they have been removed from distribution. We no longer have replacement installers for these products. We are able to provide replacement registration keys and limited support for Screen Saver Construction Set 14. We recommend that you register Screen Saver Construction Set 15.

Note that Screen Saver Construction Set 15 does not open screen savers created by Screen Saver Construction Set 2 at this time.

Please be sure to review the terms and conditions for distributing Screen Saver Construction Set's screen savers. There's nothing particularly ominous therein, but the lawyers would have screamed loudly enough to have been heard in Patagonia if we hadn't included them.
