Are you seeing any error messages in the Log? (Right-click Rainmeter tray icon, select About)

If you see "Error: Failed to initialize audio..." then you have a program on your PC that has exclusive control of the audio (Nahamic, Sonic, etc.) and you need to disable that program before any Rainmeter visualizer will work. :x
Im not currently home, ill be home around 6:30 PM EST. Ill send the logs to this thread.

I do see this error. I dont know if I have any programs that have exclusive control. Could you possibly name a few more? This is a new computer with very few programs on it. I just built it.

Uhm... Those are the most popular on newer systems, I do not know any others. :???:

Make sure you have "UnChecked" the allow exclusive mode in your audio device settings; this tells Windows not to allow exclusive mode, but programs can override this setting.

Programs like Nahamic auto-start with your system so you may never see any indication they are running. I would try to determine if any audio enhancement came with your motherboard sound, and search their site for how to disable them on startup. :confused:

Once you disable them, the errors will disappear and visualizers will work. :welcome:

That box is unchecked, but i still have no idea what Nahamic is. I didnt install it. If its part of windows it also might not be there because im using a special edition of windows that doesnt contain stuff like microsoft edge, the store, or any other software like that.

I have an ASUS ROG motherboard, an MSI GTX 1070, and an Intel i7-8700K. Any of these conflict with it?

Well there are only 80 ASUS ROG motherboards listed on the site and you will have to match yours... the ones I looked at may be using Sonic Studio III, Sonic Radar III, or ROG Strix's SupremeFX ... any of which probably take exclusive control of your audio and prevent visualizers from working.

You'll need to work with them to find out if it can be disabled/enabled by you depending on what activity you want.

Turns out I have both Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar. How do I disable them?

The info page for your motherboard on ROG ASUS has details on what is included...
I repeat: "You'll need to work with them to find out if it can be disabled/enabled by you depending on what activity you want."

Here is a link on their forum that discusses the Sonic software and drivers: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?106440-Sonic-Studio-3&highlight=sonic+studio

I cannot do anything else to help since I do not have your motherboard or those programs :uhuh:

Good Luck! :thumbup:
