When I've started to work with the new computer, it was obvious that this one can measure the temperature, but I wanted to find a way to measure it without an external app. Finally I figured out how this can be done, even found two different ways. This skin is the result of my "research".
But here I had two problems:
- The skin will work just on some processors (for sure the Intel's Skylakes are supported, but have no idea which others are).
- Even on the supported processors, the skin will work just if Rainmeter is run as administrator.
If it's working, the skin will indicate, besides the current temperature, the highest temperature, reached so far (since the last refresh). If it's not, an appropriate message will be shown, indicating that the skin isn't working, the measurement of the temperature is not possible, but you could try running Rainmeter as administrator. If that's the situation (Rainmeter runs as administrator), you could try one more thing: open the code of the skin and locate the [MeasureRun] measure. It has two pairs of Parameter and Substitute options, one pair commented out. You can try to comment out the other pair. Just note that the first Parameter option works with the first Substitute and vice-versa: the second Parameter option works with the second Substitute.
Also by default the skin will show the temperatures in Celsius degrees, but you can easily switch to Fahrenheit degrees, or even to Kelvin. This can be done by a click to any of the left or right side temperatures (the current and sometimes the largest temperature shown in the left side or the five temperatures shown on the right side).
The skin doesn't install any plugin or addon.
I'm extremely curious how many of you will find this skin useful, if it's working. Please send feedback.
Thanks in advance.
