Some issues installing

Post by JonJon »

I'm just having a couple of issues here.
The install for the 1.2 version of the program goes smoothly.
But as soon as it opens I go to hover over the program and I get the waiting symbol.
Then after about 5 minutes it goes away and it looks normal. I'll then try to click something..anything actually and it turns a grey color in "Enigma" & a black color in "Gnometer".
When I tried installing 1.1 the program just wouldn't respond at all.
I'm running window 7 ultimate 32 bit, using eset nod32 I even tried running it as admin and no luck.

Just to help out a little heres a SS of what it all looks like.

Any suggestions?

Have you made Rainmeter and all its folders an exception in NOD32?

Your "Skin" files

Rainmeter.ini and your "Themes"

More information on installing Rainmeter is available in the Rainmeter Manual at Rainmeter Installation
I don't think, therefore I'm not.
