I'm having issues with taboo_Vision Skin Rainmeter https://www.deviantart.com/jamien-price/art/taboo-Vision-Skin-Rainmeter-122032577,
more specifically I've located the issue to be with the HDD (hard drive) skin. I've narrowed it down to the PerfMon plugin.
Basically on start-up, rainmeter will fail to load due to it. The skin works perfectly fine it I remove it before rainmeter start & then manually add it. It would work with no issues. However if I close rainmeter & open it, it would not load all the skins due to this skin. I've narrowed it further down to the PerfMon plugin. If I comment that line out, it loads all the plugins.
I've tried replacing the PerfMon plugin with one from a back, reinstalling rainmeter entirely & https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-performance/perfmon-problems-unable-to-add-counters/e90f231d-0014-457d-8b1f-5f342971597a or as recommended here https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/deprecated/perfmon/ to ""rebuilding" the database from the Windows command line" with success (I get the appropriate return "Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store").
However on start-up rainmeter still fails to load due to it, unless I remove it. Please advice? Any suggestions?
Note: on rainmeter log, it just stops at loading that skin & crashes. & importantly the skin & plugin seems to work if I add it manually and not have the skin at start-up. Why is this so?
Update, have just found out that PerfMon is depreciated https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/deprecated/perfmon/ https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/deprecated/
so I have to replace it with UsageMonitor. Sadly I'm not too experienced but am trying.
Does anyone know how to convert this part of the code that uses PerfMon to UsageMonitor?
Many thanks if possible.
