I need to bundle the 32bit variant with the skin, clearly I am not dropping it in
alongside the in-use 64 bit version on my PC hence my question.
So, how do I get the 32bit variant in the right place in the rmskin file alongside the 64 bit variant using the new "Create skin" feature...
What you do is keep both the 32bit and 64bit versions somewhere on your computer. It really doesn't matter where, these files are for you to distribute with your .rmskin. Keep them in:
Now when you create a .rmskin, you will "add" a plugin, and browse to each of those folders in turn to add the 32bit and 64bit versions of the plugin.
Then when a user installs the .rmskin, the installer will see what bit version of Rainmeter they have, and install the correct .dll to C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\Plugins
There will be only the one version of the .dll on the end user's computer in that folder.
