QuotePlugin freezes with empty path

Post by poiru »

If the path is empty, QuotePlugin freezes Rainmeter. In the example below, settings.inc does NOT exist.

Code: Select all

[Variables]
@Include=settings.inc

###

[Random]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll
PathName=#Path#
Subfolders=1
FileFilter=*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.gif;*.png
I temporarily solved it by doing the following, but hope a permanent fix will be available soon.

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Path=%HOMEPATH%
@Include=settings.inc
Rainmeter 1.1 (r306) on WinXP.

This problem has been fixed in the past.

I actually tried this sample. But Rainmeter did not freeze it though the image was not displayed of course.
For example, add and test some commands in meter as follows. If the command works, the skin is alive.

Code: Select all

@Include=settings.inc
