Nsis error launching installer

Post by zeol »

Trying to uninstall rainmeter because it's randomly saying it's taking up 326g of space but I keep getting the nsis error. I've been searching around the internet and nothing I've found was able to fix the problem.

Any ideas?

What's going on here? These days a lot of such questions have been posted:
https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=34582#p171198
https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=34581&start=20#p171253
and now this one.
So, what's going on? Maybe https://www.rainmeter.net/ is under atac and the installer has been hacked?

I'm not sure. I ran a virus scan and got nothing out of it.

Other users who reported the same problem, said the same thing: according to the used antiviruses, there are no viruses on their systems. A developer should check the site and the installer, I suppose...

I can't figure it out

Also a little more info, I don't actually think it's taking up space on my drive. I have a bunch of games installed on the ssd and it says apps and games are taking up 315g but when I look at rainmeter it's saying it's taking up 326gs.

Where do you see that 326 GB? In Windows Explorer?

What apps and features is?
However 326 GB is too much. Normally no way to get Rainmeter so big.
