Hi, I've just upgraded Rainmeter to the latest beta (2947) and now every time I right click to open foobar, Rainmeter crashes. Previous to the update, I had no issues at all.

I went through the two skins I use and changed all Plugin=NowPlaying.dll to remove the .dll extension, but I'm still having problems opening foobar. I have also removed the actual plugins from Rainmeters Plugins folder.

Please help :thumbup:

Thank you

Hi sl23!

I can not duplicate this using Rainmeter beta r2947 and foobar200 v1.3.6... opening foobar from my skins works normally.

What skins are you using? Perhaps post a link, or your code, so we can simulate your issue... :confused:

Hi and thanks for your reply.

I am using Foobar v1.3.16
Windows10 x64

Here's my code for the whole skin, it is rather complex as everything is self contained!

This skin hasn't been changed since creation and completion, which is around two years or so now. No other issues have surfaced until this update. If this is something my end, I'll try a fresh install of Rainmeter to see if that helps.

Thank you for your help

I changed the variable "f2k" to be the path to my foobar2000 installation ("C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe"} and refreshed your skin... it did not crash Rainmeter. but it also did not open foobar2000.

I then looked at your [Clock] section and changed RightMouseUpAction=["#f2k#"] by adding brackets and quotes... then it opened foobar2000 on right-click.

I also changed the [SongTime] section also ... LeftMouseUpAction=["#f2k#"].

That got it working for me. Hope this helps.

Wow! Thank you so much for your help, it worked straight away.

I don't suppose you know why this needed changing? Might help to know for future reference.

So your variable could be stated as
f2k=["\SyMenu\ProgramFiles\SPSSuite\SyMenuSuite\foobar2000_sps\foobar2000.exe"] or you need to add the brackets and quotes to the mouse action as I did.

Thanks for your reply.

I understand that it states in the manual, but this has worked without brackets and quotes for years, so why not now? Has it been 'written out' of the Rainmeter code so the command now has to have brackets and quotes? Why the sudden change?

Would like to know if this has to be like this for all future skins or edits? I haven't seen any reference to the change, is it an old change that has finally become obsolete?

Well, at least my skins work again, much appreciated.

Thanks

Pretty much always been this way...

External Windows commands can be executed by specifying the path to the executable and any parameters. Enclose the command in square brackets [], and enclose any values with spaces in quotes.
