Amazing job! Even more so after combining it with AutoHotkey+a few rows of c++ in order to make it appear upon account locking. To get the perfect thing, though, I would need the screensaver to split over two screens when I am at work... Is there any chance to make it possible?

I reply to myself: using properly enlarged picture, to fit both the screens, and choosing "uniform to fill" in "Background Image size mode" definitely did the job!

I wish there was a way to show Windows 8 notifications etc. within Metro Clock.
That would be awesome :)

I'm still having the issue that MetroClock crashes when your try to save the settings.
I've given all user and admins full control (read, write, modify, etc) to settings.xml. I've changed the ownership to my current user (I've also tried all other users), but it still crashes.
My current user is the admin. Everything worked right after I installed Win7, but when I started to install other apps and update windows (including updating .Net 4), it suddenly stopped working.

When it crashes, I get the following in the problem details - Problem Event Name: CLR20r3.

Can anyone help me with this?

I have no clue how to make the "Lock Screen" appear. I already copied files to system32, and also tried rebooting my computer. But the only thing I could see is the screen saver. Is there any way that I can press "Win+L" to lock my computer and see the Metro Clock V3 "Lock Screen"?

Yes you could make it appear in logon screen but it would not work correctly, search for how to set logon screen saver in Windows 7

if the pattern lock behave like android(hold the mouse to draw a path)to unlock,that'd be more easy to use.

This isn't a forum, please don't spam. It's probably because you do not have ownership of the folder.

I'm having some problems with the settings, mainly that if I change the settings via Screensaver > Settings. Nothing saves on save. So I can't edit it at all?
