You may not be doing anything wrong - looking at their web-site it isn't rated for Win 8 -

 

System Requirements:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
DirectX 6, Flash Player 10
 
It may be the case that if it runs at all on Win 8, be grateful. There are quite a number of older screen savers which will run but not adjust on either Win 7 or Win 8. Mind you, it looks gorgeous though !

I think that Chris Cosgrove is right and that it won't run in 8.1.

If you want to take radical steps to do it, you can take the pics out of the Fallen Leaves program and put them in a folder in your Pictures folder, then move all your pictures elsewhere.

The Screensaver option allow for using all the pics in your Pictures folder, and if all you have in there are the fallen leaves pics, it will work.

Bear in mind that if you do the "radical trick", anytime you save pics to your computer, you'll have to navigate them to the new location, otherwise they will appear in the screensaver collection.


All is well in Paradise.
