IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

The En

there seems to be a "d" missing somewhere in there XD

Very cool! Will be downloading this and trying out some of the new plugins.

*Sidenote, on the Main website's "Documentation" page, the Manual link still says 1.3.

Hey,

Make sure your firewall/anti-virus is not blocking the installer. If that doesn't help, download and install the Visual C++ library manually from:
- 32bit: http://Rainmeter.net/redist/vcredist_x86.exe
- 64bit: http://Rainmeter.net/redist/vcredist_x64.exe

Then, try to install and you should be fine.
