iScreensaver has been updated to version

iScreensaver version 6.8.3 fixes an issue that could cause screensaver installers to crash silently on macOS non-English language systems (such as Korean). It also has improved error reporting, and has been tested with the latest versions of Windows 11 and macOS 12.1 Monterey. Any authors distributing screensavers to non-English macOS users should update and rebuild as soon as possible, and other authors are encouraged to update and rebuild when convenient.

Release Notes
We are pleased to announce the release of iScreensaver version 6 which supports macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) through 11 (Big Sur) and Windows 7 through 10. Read about Version 6

macOS screensaver installer fails to launch on non English language system

We have identified an issue where a screensaver installer will fail to launch on macOS systems where the language is not English. For example, we are seeing this on Korean-language systems.

As a workaround, you can temporarily set the system language to English.

  • Open System Preferences, and select Language & Region.
  • Click the Plus (+) button, add English and drag it above your currently selected language, as shown here:

  • Then, restart the computer, install the screensaver, then set the language back afterwards.

We are working on a fix and should have a new release shortly.
