That's nothing to do with Flash. When Windows executes a
screensaver, it passes /s as parameter. This causes the projector
to try to open /s as a URL.

I've wrote a simple program which will call another one. E.g. if
my proggie is called flash.src, it'll execute flash.exe. If it's
called whatever.src, it'll execute whatever.exe. That way you can
copy both, the projector and my program, into the system
directory. The filename of my proggie will be listed with the
other screensavers. If it is executed, it'll execute the Flash
projector without any parameters.
