Surawut, I had some problems with the download link in your blog post, but was able to download the file from your Skydrive.

After installing, I was eager to test it out, but using the [Preview] and [Settings] buttons in the Screen Saver manager in Windows both result in instantaneous crash of the screensaver (e.g. the only thing that is displayed is the default Windows error message "PhotosynthSaver has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..."). I have both .NET 3 and Silverlight 3 installed on my Win7 RC (Build 7100) machine but no luck yet.

I also downloaded the RARed .scr from your Skydrive and tried executing it on its own, but experienced the same crashes. 

Let me know if there's anything else I can tell you for troubleshooting. I'd love to try this out.

... Okay, I just tested on WinXP SP3 and it worked there. 

It would be nice to have some options in the settings for the viewing mode (e.g. photos + points, points only, photos only) and also the ability to just run the viewer fullscreen, rather than limiting the size to three presets.

This sounds pretty cool! Just tested out on Win7 x64 machine (RTM) and I ran into the same issue as Nathanael did. As soon as I try to bring up settings or preview, it errors out. Would love to see this in action!
