[Solved] No matter what skin I open, I get the error message

Post by DCOfftheHeezay »

No Available Skins at "Pathname" (to a folder of a skin I downloaded off of deviantart.com)

I searched around and didn't find this question anywhere, any help would be awesome.
New to this. (: Thanks.

If it's not important to keep your current setup intact, then exit Rainmeter, go to your application data folder* and delete Rainmeter.ini.

If you do need to keep your setup, then exit Rainmeter, open the same Rainmeter.ini in a text editor, and delete the section related to the skin you downloaded. You'll see the skin path in [Brackets], followed by a number of lines - delete all of them up to the next set of brackets.

*Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Application Data\Rainmeter. Windows Vista & Win7: C:\Users\YourName\Appdata\Roaming\Rainmeter.
