Code: Select all

[MeasureOnLoad]
Measure=Calc
Formula=Counter
IfCondition=MeasureOnLoad = 1
IfTrueAction=[Play "#@#\Sounds\Wecome2.wav"]
UpdateDivider=-1
This will play the sound when the skin you put this in (it can be any skin you always load) is first loaded, which will be when Rainmeter is started...

As SilverAzide said, doesn't really matter where in your code do you put the measure. But what does really matter is in which skin do you add the measure. Read carefully jsmorely's reply:

This means you have to add the measure to a skin which is ALWAYS loaded when you start Rainmeter. And usually when you start Rainmeter, it loads the skins which have been loaded when Rainmeter has been closed (usually the skins loaded when you have shut down your computer). So, make sure to have a skin which is always loaded (might even have no visual elements, but in this case is a little bit harder to interact with it) and add the measure to the code of that skin.
