Rainmeter not starting

Post by ANNOProfi »

I have a problem with Rainmeter not starting through it's .exe.
It does not run on startup and if I manually execute the .exe, it seems to start, but as soon as I hover over the Icon in the taskbar (bottom left for standard windows, where the clock is), it disappears.
The only way to start Rainmeter reliably has been to reinstall it and run upon completion.

Hard to say for sure, but it feels like you might have installed some skin that is causing an issue. I'd be tempted to follow this guide:

It works now, thanks.
