No, Update=-1 means no update at all, except the very first moment when the skin is loaded or refreshed. This is ok, it for sure doesn't cause an increase of the CPU usage.

balala it was set on 2 so : update=2 minimal is 16 and -1 is no update as you said to... a 1000 for a normal skin would be oke..

Rainmeter Dock.ini
Yes, but unfortunately this code doesn't help too much, because beside the skin, there is an included file (@Resources\Variables.inc) and a few images (kept by the Icon1NameAndPath - Icon9NameAndPath variables). So the best would by you to pack the whole config which contains the posted Rainmeter Dock.ini skin and upload the package. This way we'd have all needed files (including Variables.inc, as well as the needed images) and would be much simpler for us to can check what's going on.

Where have you found the Update=2? Because I still sustain the posted skin has the Update set to -1.
But even if it is set as you say to Update=2, Rainmeter uses the closest valid value, so Update=16.

In both tskins Rainmeter uses Update=16, the closest valid value.
But where have you found those skins? There has been posted only one .ini file, the Rainmeter Dock.ini.

Probably you are looking into two different ini files, because you are looking into the original files and into my files in which i tried to do some settings.


This might cause some confusion =D
