Nice!
But while i can see the FPS change in sentest.exe, the plugin does not seem to pick it up.

This is my measure:

Code: Select all

[Measure1]
Measure=Plugin
SivPlugin=SIV
SivKey=SYSGPUFPS
Sensor=H
SivType=Current

Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SIV
SivKey=SYSGPUFPS
Sensor=H
SivType=Current

Yes, typo's can be confusing, especially when trying something new.

If you Remember the normal Rainmeter syntax for all plugins;
Rainmeter SyntaxPlugins
Measure=Plugin
Plugin={PluginNameDLL}
It may help to find typos.

Glad you got it working! :thumbup:

Got everything working and i am quite pleased how simple and easy it is once i figured out what it needs to work.
Last hurdle though seems to be, getting siv64x.exe / siv32x.exe to start automatically with windows.

Tried creating a shortcut in both startup folders:
C:\Users\*******\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

But it does make the program start at startup.

And the startup pane in the task manager does not let you add programs to the list, just enable/disable the programs already there.

Could just start the program when the skin loads,

Code: Select all

[mSIV]
 Measure=Plugin
 Plugin=Process
 ProcessName=SIV64X.exe
 IfCondition=(mSIV<1)
 IfTrueAction=["C:\Users\*****\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\******\@Resources\Addons\siv\SIV64X.exe"]

but i need it to start minimized and since i've got several skins using SIV, they would each open their own instance of the program.
And the annoying UAC dialog box is, well yeah, annoying.


Have not found a setting in the program to make it start with windows, but why would there be, it's a portable exe.
If there is any other way of getting it to start with windows i'm all ears.

On another note, i need the total amount of VRAM on my gpu for a bar.
Found it in sentest.exe but cannot figure out how to extract that value.
While SivType=String can display it, i can't use it for the bar because it is a string.
And it just displays everything...

I just need the number 8 in this case.

Hi,

my antivirus software "Avira" suddenly alerts that SIV.dll is a potential malware. It's a heuristic analysis alarm and I've been using the plugin for a week or so. Malwarebytes doesn't raise any alarm. Ignore and continue?
