Rainmter doesn't work!

Post by Abil »

I had several problems on Windows 10 and gone back to Windows 8.1 and I have a big problem here. When I download and install RainMeter, it comes with default theme and works. But when I try to install a theme called DropTop4Four when i completes it says "RainMeter not responding.". This theme worked for me on Windows 10 without any problems and I was successfully pairing it with RocketDock. Is there any way to fix that? I restarted my PC , too :)
Thanks for any replies

DropTop4Four being this: https://www.deviantart.com/cariboudjan/art/droptop-four-762812007? If it's not, please post a link where we can download it, because otherwise no one will be able to say anything useful.
And what the "I was successfully pairing it with RocketDock." does mean?

Are you sure you are using the most recent Rainmeter check and see at www.rainmeter.net also I advise installing the Beta, as that will ensure all of the most recent functionalities are available.

Is RocketDock a rainmeter skin or a third party application? Further asking, if RocketDock is being used to launch rainmeter, or any skins?

The more you can say about how at what you are using rainmeter for along with how rocketdock is expected to function will help everyone around here to provide assistance.
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

This is a huge skin, which included much plugins and scripts. So.. It seems to be complicated to research why it doesn't start.. Btw it works for me. Check your Visual C++ packages for the beginning..

Which skin? Because I couldn't find one named DropTop4Four, as the OP said in his initial request. Did you identify any? The closest I found, as said inmy previous reply, was droptop four, but I1m not sure if this is what is he talking about.

Might be, however I'm waiting for a confirmation from the OP.
BTW, have you succeeded installing it?

Yep, but i have Win10, also TS has not problems with that at win10. I guess it's about vc++, there is big amount of custom scripts that requires .net platform, but sure it might be just "broken" system or less obvious things. Also i believe RM must writes something to log before dying, maybe about some measure with script or something else..

Me too. Additonally note that the linked installer can be installed on windows 7 and above, so this should not be a problem. At least if the author was careful enough.

Have you idea which skins of the package have been loaded when Rainmeter crashed? Would be an extremely useful information, because the package has more than a hundred skins, me definitely can't try out all.
