I do have the rainformer CPU skin reporting incorrectly on Win11 22H2 tho. Replaced that code in the first post, reloaded rainmeter and it still seems to show about half the real percent of windows CPU. Anything else that I am missing?
No, you are not missing anything. This is a bug in Windows 11 22H2, and many third-party tools are reporting this same behavior. I think the MSI Afterburner folks created a work-around. It may or may not get fixed by Microsoft, as last I looked they have not indicated they consider this a bug. There is a way to correct this, but the skin author would need to revise the way CPU usage is obtained from Rainmeter.

See the post Skins show lower than actual CPU Usage in Windows 11 22H2 for more information.

Understand the Win11 problem or change, but that doesn't seem to be working for me. I copied all 2258 lines on the CPU- skin fix, updated the file in c:\documents\userprofile\OneDrive\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\RainformerAIDA64\CPU-RAM and restarted rainmeter. CPU percent from task manager is still about 1/3rd to 1/2 higher than the rainformer CPU skin reports.

yeah, it's tough to troubleshoot some of this stuff over text. Thanks for all that you do though. If we back tis up a bit, if I copied the code from: https://pastebin.com/HnMjuBD0 and replaceed my rainformer CPU-ram skin code with it. Then reloaded the rainmeter app. Is the expected result that the CPU skin now matches task manager CPU utilization percent stats for total CPU and each core?

It should match pretty closely. There will be slight timing variations due to the instant Rainmeter grabs the data vs. when task manager does it, but the overall usage and the core percentage should be fairly consistent, +/-.
