SkinPath not found

Post by mmk412 »

I get this error message when I try to install a skin
SkinPath not found. Make sure that Rainmeter has been run at least once.
The Illustro skin that came with Rainmeter works but I can't add any new skins
This is the log file:

The skins should have to be placed into the C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins\ folder, as shown into the SettingsPath line of the log. Check where they are. I assume your Skins folder has been moved away (manually?) but the appropriate option has not been modified. If you know where the skins are, right click the Rainmeter icon in the Notification Area and click Edit settings. Rainmeter.ini opens in the default text editor. Check the SkinPath option of the [Rainmeter] section. If it's not correct, modify it by adding the proper path. If you have to do this, restart Rainmeter.
Has that option been correct?
