illustro System Specs

Post by eclectic-tech »

Here is an illustro style skin, based on code from JSMorley and KY Administrator in another thread, which shows the OS, Version, and Build information (updated per JSMorley's suggestions :thumbup: ).
It includes a toggle skin that can be used (or not) to toggle the "illustroSystemSpecs\SystemSpecsFull.ini" (small rectangle in the image below).

Nice. I'd be tempted to use measures like this:

Code: Select all

[MeasureProductName]
Measure=SysInfo
SysInfoType=OS_VERSION
UpdateDivider=-1

[MeasureDisplayVersion]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
RegKey=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
RegValue=DisplayVersion
UpdateDivider=-1

[MeasureCurrentBuild]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
RegKey=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
RegValue=CurrentBuild
UpdateDivider=-1

[MeasureUBR]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
RegKey=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
RegValue=UBR
UpdateDivider=-1

[MeasureWinBits]
Measure=String
String=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="^(.+)$":"64","^$":"32"
UpdateDivider=-1
And display it with this information and in this order in the skin:

I think the UBR (Update Build Revision) is a useful postfix to the build number. It's the most use if you are doing the Windows Insider thing, but not entirely useless for just the release versions.

Note that I'm now using SysInfo instead of the Windows Registry to get the "product name". I don't use the registry, since as of this writing, that key is "broken" in Windows 11, and has not been updated to say Windows 11, but still says Windows 10.

Will this become part of the default illustro suite that comes with Rainmeter? I think it should do.

Hi, thanks for sharing your work with us, it's great. I just wondered if you are considering updating this to match the customisation along side your Illustra suite?, (change the colours of the background and text and so fourth).

Thanks in advance

Probably some time in the near future. I have made a few changes to other illustra skins and will include this skin when adding those changes.
