Questionscreensaver fine tuning Pin

description:
Custom screensaver in vb.net 2008 of a slideshow using local resource images embedded. I got the exe working fine.

general steps done so far:
1) form properties to no border and full screen
2) import images to local resources so they are embedded in the application
3) create a timer to change the form.background to the next image
4) generate a random number reflecting the number of images and confirm no repeats
5) close application trigger (spacebar)
6) test on my systems and work fine as exe

Problem:
#1
Within install shield reg settings pushed
-1 HKCU/controlpanel/dekstop/ScreenSaveActive = 1
-2 ScreenSaveTimeOut = 900 (15 minutes)
-3 SCRNSAVE.EXE = C:\Windows\MICHAE~1.SCR
1 and 3 work
2 doesn't set the screensaver timer to 15 minutes, it stays at the same timer previously entered

#2
right clicking on the desktop of Win 7 and selecting Personalize. The screensaver is there, but clicking on Screen Saver to open up the screensaver properties, the screensaver initiates. Stopping the screensaver brings the screensaver properties up fine. Using another way like Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Change screen saver works as expected. Using the start>run "screensaver" to open screensaver properties starts the screensaver and after closing the screensaver, the screensaver properties is available.

#3
in the screensaver properties, selecting either settings or preview start the screensaver twice. In other words, the screensaver will start, then after you close it, it starts again a second time.

#4
although the screensaver shows it is in the screensaver properties window. even after waiting the designated time to pass, the screensaver doesn't initiate.

Can someone lend a hand on how to resolve these issues?
