Hmm I've tried to fix this letters-staying-on-top-after-clicked-on problem, and I've found something which worked for me.

So in the activated circle's left mouse button down action, right after !execute [#PATH1#], I simply pasted [!RainmeterSetVariable Active ] which does it for me alright, maybe it's worth a try.

(Oh and I've also experienced that some programs won't get to be executed, while there are those, which can be if you add/remove something, change it's location here, add arguments there, etc, but for 90% of programs so far it works well...)

Anyhow, with some final touches to make it a fully bug-free rainmeter skin i guess it'll be one of the most awesome skin ever made.

Firefox and iTunes both simply run from firefox.exe and itunes.exe, respectively, so I guess I kinda thought it would be similar :P
Hi, I noticed the same problem with utorrent.exe (also winamp.exe and trillian.exe for me). I accidentally pasted in the path with double quotation marks and for some reason it works now! I have no idea why, but it does for me.

My paths look like this :
Name9=uTorrent
Path9=""C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe""

Well pretty much as I know by looking at different rainmeter codes, it sure has some things which are either too hard for me to comprehend (like what I said, or you've just said; nonsense things sometimes resolve problems), or are just my eye keeps slipping on the whereabout of the problem (probly meaning that somewhere along the code where I'm not paying attention to is the solution...).

Very, Very nice.
I see that you have captured the reg keys to my computer, my documents etc...

Is there any way that you can point me in the same vein for the Windows START button??? I would really appreciate !
Best regards,

:roll: :(-

Not sure why this isn't working then. Here is the code at Path9.

CircleRadius=5
CircleGap=40

; 7 8 9

Name1=BigFish
Path1="http://www.bigfishgames.com"

Name2=Steam
Path2="E:\Steam\Steam.exe"

Name3=TeamViewer
Path3="C:\Program Files\TeamViewer\Version5\TeamViewer.exe"

Name4=Rainmeter

Name5=My Computer

Name6=My Documents
