Just to let you know you are not alone.
I tried two savers: pointed to c:\users\walraven\pictures
'Photos' reports the error message 'An error is preventing this slide show
'windows live photo gallery' reports the error message 'There are no photos
or videos in c:\Users\Walraven\Pictures.
There ARE pictures there as well as folders of pictures.
My best guess is that there are too many total pictures (I have about
14,000), or the special nature of ...\pictures is messing up the saver.
In either case selecting a folder of pictures within ....\Pictures does work
