I have used Deskscapes at work for a long time. Recently our network forced all user directories to migrate to the network drive rather than to default to local folders in user profile.
With the latest versions of Deskscapes, when I download an animated background, it does not copy to the domain mapped users folder, so it does not run after being downloaded, and does not show up in the interface after closing the Deskscapes UI. If I try to download the file again in the UI, it indicates that it has copied to "\\servername\userfoldername\Stardock\Dreams", but there is no file there, and it will not apply to monitors and run.
If I go to the dreams.stardock.com site and open the background from there, it DOES save a copy to the cached folder: "C:\ProgramData\Stardock\Deskscapes\ExtractedData", and that will run, but it does not save a copy anywhere else.
I suspect it might work if I could tell (Override) Deskscapes what the mapped drive is to download to, but there is no setting to manually tell deskscapes to do that.
