I installed it and the RainVolume.exe from the Plugins folder kept popping up in the system tray, and there were like, 50 of them, then my explorer.exe restarted and my system tray went blank even though everything was still running, and now they won't show.
I'm using Windows Vista x32 with the latest Rainmeter. (1.2 I think?)
Please try to restart your computer I think everything will be fine then I have not tryed the plugin on vista myself but it should work properly On windows 7 the icon keeps on building up in the system tray, but when I hover over it they all dissapear I have no other way of measuring the system volume but I will try to contact =poiru And maybe he knows a way
Alright so I re-installed it and it works fine this time, however, I keep getting the "loading" cusor flashing, and the RainVolume.exe keeps popping up in my system tray, but only one, and it constantly keeps appearing then disappearing.
I'm gonna go ahead and change my busy in background cursor to the pointer, but I thought I'd let you know that. (In case you hadn't already.)
Awesomeness, but any idea why it causes my start button to spaz? (im using task bar eliminator so my task bar is hidden but can still see my start button, but that retracts, when the skin is applied it spazes in and out)
Not sure whats going on, maybe a bug? When I use the skin I notice a CPU used goes up a tad and I get a flashing busy on the mouse pointer. When I close just the skin it stops and CPU goes back to normal.
The cpu usages goes up indeed because one component of he skin (Rainvolume plugin) must start every few seconds to check the system volume Then it uses some cpu The busy mouspointer is also because of that, you could change the "busy in background" mousepointer to the "normal" pointer That's what I did
Tested. It definitely does not work on XP. On loading the skin it started spawning AutoIt error windows and tray icons, until I closed Rainmeter. RainVolume only works on Vista/7 the way windows handles volume changed for them.
Your previous version didn't cause this to happen.
To use the Addons folder simply create...
Addons\NirCmd\ and Addons\RainVolume\
put the programs in the correct folders.
Then use the builtin variable to point to them from the skin.
