Analog DIN Clock Screensaver

This screensaver shows an analog clock designed according to DIN standard 41090, as it can be seen quite often throughout Germany.

The installation size of this screensaver is small - only 300 KB are required for the single (!) SCR file plus additional 150 KB for the uninstaller. (The screensaver can be uninstalled just like most other Windows applications using the installed programs list of Windows.)
The CPU load is low - even on older systems it will stay below 10%.
Prerequisites: .NET Version 4.0 (already pre-installed on recent Windows versions.)

The screensaver has been successfully tested on Windows XP, Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and Windows 10 (64-bit).
