look in traysystems.ini in taskbar/combos/tray systems under Enigma. Change the Drive2=E to another drive that isn't a card reader in this section:

[Variables]
Color1=255, 255, 255, 217
Color2=255, 255, 255, 160
Font=Trebuchet MS
Height1=10
Height2=7
Drive1=C
Drive2=E

For those who run into this post but still run into the same post, I've left my documentation of the error below. Specifically, there is a discrepancy in the file that the above post points to and my own copy of the file, which is the default included in the latest release.

The quickest solution was to insert a disk (in this case, and SD card) into the E: drive. Running Rainmeter as an Administrator, I then pushed the config settings button and changed all three drives to C. It seems to have solved the problem. Hope this helps!
I am running into the exact same error. However, upon opening traysystems.ini, there are no Drive1 and Drive2 variables. Instead, I have:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
FontColor=255, 255, 255
FontColor2=255, 255, 255, 160
FontName=Calibri
FontHeight1=10
FontHeight2=7
AntiAlias=1
; -------------------------

[MeasureCPU]
Measure=CPU

[MeasureRAM]
Measure=PhysicalMemory

[MeasureHD]
Measure=FreeDiskSpace
Drive=C:

[MeasureHD2]
Measure=FreeDiskSpace
Drive=E:
It seems like I should change the Drive variable under MeasureHD2. However, changing it to another drive (even C:) does not change the occurrence of the crash. I tried taking the whole "MeasureHD2" section out, but I continue to get the same crash. Here is a link to my dump file:

I get the same error on both 32 and 64-bit versions, and I am running Vista 64.
