How to Install and Enable DreamScene in Windows 7

Windows DreamScene, a feature which allows a video clip, movie show, slideshow or animated image and picture to be set as the desktop background in Windows Vista has been removed in Windows 7, in favor of Desktop Slideshow wallpaper auto rotator. Although Windows 7 no longer supports DreamScane, the DreamScene function can still be manually added and installed into Windows 7 with a little hack in order to turn on and enable the DreamScene support in Windows7.

In order to enable DreamScene in Windows 7, the similar hack which allows DreamScene to be installed on non-Ultimate edition of Windows Vista such as Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Enterprise edition is used. The DreamScene installation hack has been compiled into an executable, which automatically copy the necessary DreamScene files and merge require registry keys and entries.

Tip: To run DreamScene in Windows 7, Windows Aero has to be turned on.

Windows 7 DreamScene Desktop Background

Download Windows DreamScene Installer for Windows 7:

32-bit (x86) Win7: Windows7-DreamScene.exe or Windows7-DreamScene-Enable.exe (Without Admin Rights Check)

64-bit (x64) Win7: DreamScene_Win7_x64.zip

How to Install DreamScene in Windows 7

For 32-bit Windows DreamScene: Run the Windows7-DreamScene.exe as Administrator to install and enable Windows DreamScene on Windows 7. The installer will copy DreamScene.dll to %WinDir%\System32 folder, DreamScene.dll.mui to %WinDir%\System32\en-US folder and add the required registry keys and values. Then it will automatically restart the Explorer to make the installation of DreamScene works immediately.

For 64-bit Windows DreamScene: Unpack the DreamScene_Win7_x64.zip archive, then copy DreamScene.dll to %WinDir%\System32\, DreamScene.dll.mui to %WinDir%\System32\en-US\. Run Dscene.reg to install the required registry keys and values. Restart Explorer or reboot to complete the installation.

A Windows DreamScene folder has also been created in %WinDir%\Web\ folder. You can place any video file that you want to set as DreamScene background wallpaper here as in Windows Vista, or anywhere you like. However, the folder is less useful as Windows 7 does not support direct viewing of video or animated media in Personalization Control Panel.

Windows 7 DreamScene Usage Guide

Set DreamScene as Desktop Background in Windows 7

To apply a video clip (in .WMV or .MPG format) as the DreamScene animated wallpaper desktop background, right click on the video media file, and select Set as Desktop Background in the context menu. Due to DreamScene been stripped from Windows 7 issue, video files may not be visible inside Personalization and Desktop Background configuration page. However, all features of DreamScene, such as Play DreamScene, Pause DreamScene and sound/audio are supported.

    Also followed instructions to the letter here. Does not seem to work. Registry updated and everything, but the option to set as background does not appear in drop down menus. File types are correct, as well. Not sure why this is, but it may be conflicting with another program (VLC?) Anyone have that program installed and get this to work?

  • Danny

    @Wes Allen: Yes, it works fine on Windows 7 64 bit, and SP1 as well. Only W7 already has newer versions of the dll and mui files installed. DON'T overwrite the existing ones with the ones above. Windows has a built in function for checking that all system files are alright; if it finds one with the wrong version, it will assume Windows is broken. I'm guessing that's why your Windows fried.

    All you need to do is to apply the registry settings (using regedit), and that's it. Didn't even need to restart anything. Worked right away.

    Hello. I have a question. I notice when the DreamScene is installed, the text or file names under the files and folders are not very visible at all. Almost an invisible cast over the barely legible text. Anyone experience this yet? If so what was (1) the reason and (2) the solution to this issue.

    I am running this on Windows 7 Professional. The animation is working in the background however!

    For those people that use a video for their dreamscene and wish for the music/audio that comes with the video to play too then then just follow this: on the notification area or system tray (in the most right in the task bar) right click the audio symbol and open the volume mixer nad then there you will see dreamscene so then just unmute it, you can also set the volume!

    i hope this helps anyone.

  • jag420

    The best solution I could give with the desktop icons would be to right click on desktop got to personalize, then go to the theme option, reselect your them or select a new one and manually adjust the visuals to suit you, no restart rewuired, and if you work off the right side of your screen you can watch you adjustments.

  • Hey,

    The fix for the transparent desktop icons' text worked for me as well. I'll reiterate the steps if anyone's missed them:

    1) Right click your desktop and click Personalize

    2) Click on Desktop Background

    3) Click on Pick Position and change to "Fill"

    4) Click Save

    5) Your desktop background movie show be gone, but all you have to do is set it again. Find the movie you used as your background, right click it, and click Set As Background.

    6) Voila! Now your background will be the video you wanted, and your desktop icons' text will be the default white color.

    Hey everyone thinking this doesnt work, in that there is no option to SET AS DESKTOP BACKGROUND wen you right click a movie file – I thought the same thing. You MUST use ONLY .WMV files.

    First installer will not install at all, regardless of 'Admin' status, the second appears to install everything, but when it's allegedly restarting Explorer, it never comes back. After forcing Explorer to restart, I found that neither DLL had actually been installed, despite the installer claiming otherwise.

    None of the two executable (admin or non-admin versions) work for my Win 7 64-bit Premium [6.1.7600] I checked to ensure that the DLL and DLL.MUI had been copied in the system32 folder an en-US subfolder respectively but they were not. The only thing that was done was create the Windows Dreamscene folder, and that is it.

    If you payed an extra couple 100 for windows 7 ultimate just because you thought you were going to get dream scene then you have too much money to spend. I can honestly say that windows 7 over takes both windows vista and windows xp.. It's not all about visual features.

    If dreamscene doesnt work, make sure aero is actually running (i.e check that the window borders & taskbar are transparent)

    If you set as aero in personalisation settings and it stays as basic, your graphics card probs doesnt support it or needs updated drivers.

    TEMPORARY INVISIBLE TEXT FIX…WORKS AFTER RESTART:

    -right click a video and set to desktop background

    -set folder options to show hidden files

    -go to…

    C:Users#username#AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindows DreamScene

    -there should be 2 image files of the dreamscene running (1 hidden/greyed)

    -set both files to “read only” & uncheck “hidden”

    -right click desktop > personalise > desktop background

    -under windows dreamscene, you should see both image files

    -make sure both are checked by clicking check boxes next to them

    -set Picture position: Fill

    -save changes

    NOTE: You can now set any dreamscene without text bug, however if you dont

    do the above procedure everytime you set a different video, you will briefly see the

    image of the first video you set at windows startup…therefore just delete both images

    that was set to “read only” and start procedure again on new video.

    Hope this helps

  • iJeremey

    The trick to fixing the transparent text is just what was posted by Moey. To give more of a Step-by-Step Tutorial. Please read through once, THEN follow instructions. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Simply select and set the video you want as your background. Have you're Theme Personalization window open. Switch to a random theme, then go back to the location of your desired video clip and set it back to that. I think you got to close one of the windows before you close the other. I just had to screw with it a bit. I think you close the personalization window first. If that don't work, then it's the other way around. I don't know if there's another method, but this is how I got it to work. My next goal is to make video clips selectable from personalization window.

  • Brilliant little hack

    Thanks!

  • Moey

    The text transparency problem can be easily fixed by swapping from dreamscene desktop to regular wallpaper, then back to dreamscene.

  • MUGZ

    Did anyone find a patch to resolve the transparent text issue on the desktop (other than installing a dock program – one which actually fixes the text)? I've been looking all over for one and cannot find it. I really cannot understand why Microsoft didn't include Dreamscene… I'm hoping they will change their minds on it.

    The video portion of Dreamscene works great with Windows 7. I do hae the problem of my desktop icons turning transparent just as Dreamscene first starts playing. Has anyone come up with a solution to this?

    If some recive a message"please run as administrator", drag the Windows7-DreamScene.exe to winrar.link and extract all files a foldar and rifht-click on Windows7-DreamScene.cmd –> run as administrator.

    Icons text is transparent for me as well and want to fix it, but don't know how.

  • Demogorgan

    Works up untill I get to the stage of setting something as my background only option I get is play in Media Player

  • druss

    Yep.. my icon text has vanished. Any fix??

    Only 1 problem. The desktop icons text becomes transparent.

  • admin

    Jason and Tuskin, try the Windows7-DreamScene-Enable.exe, which has admin rights check removed.

  • Jason

    this won’t install for me at all. It keeps asking for Admin rights as well even tho I run it in admin mode.

  • Tuskin

    hmm this won't install for me, it keeps asking for Admin rights, I run it in admin mode. I've disabled UAC and tried, doesn't work.

    Whenever I use a video as my background in 7, the text on my desktop icons becomes completely transparent, and the only way I can read them is by reading the text's shadow.
