If you want ALL of the skins to read the changed variable, I saw a post about communicating between skins in the tips & tricks section. That may give you the help you need.

yeah you can use setvariable to set the variable in all of the skins at once i believe, but it still isn't stored in inc which is what i wanted.

!RainmeterSetVariable doesn't store anything anywhere. That is not what it is for. If you want to actually write to a file, you have to use some kind of addon. it can be nircmd, AutoIt, or even a DOS batch file, but Rainmeter doesn't "write" to files.
