If I install boinc, and select not to install the boinc screen safer, the screensafer which I had previously selected (blank screen) is removed and replaced with no screensafer. (on windows 7 64bit)

I have just tested this on Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. I set the Windows screen saver to Blank.

Then I uninstalled present 6.12.33 and reinstalled 6.10.58, specifying in the 3rd screen in the Installer to go Advanced->then uncheck "Use BOINC screen saver" and checked "Allow all users on this computer to control BOINC", then continued installation. Afterwards I checked what happened to the screen saver, it stayed at Blank.

Then I installed 6.12.33 over 6.10.58, specifying in the 3rd screen in the Installer to go Advanced->then uncheck "Use BOINC screen saver" and checked "Allow all users on this computer to control BOINC", then continued installation. Afterwards I checked what happened to the screen saver, it stayed at Blank.

I cannot reproduce the problem.
So, which BOINC versions is this with?
Are you using the "Advanced->" option in the installer, or are you continuing the installation without detours?
