Cannot Download

ana4davis » March 28th, 2019, 1:43 am

I've been struggling to download Rainmeter 4.3. I had to reset my computer which ended up deleting the previous version I had(4.2 Beta), and now it's not even letting me download this version. Every time I attempt to download it it says that I need to close Rainmeter manually but it isn't open in the first place. I've tried to uninstall so I can install it again but it isn't even letting me do that because it keeps saying that I don't have permission even though I'm the administrator. Maybe I have to wait for 4.3 Beta version to come out I'm not sure yet..

I assume you mean "install", not "download".

I would be tempted to follow this guide:

https://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/clean-rainmeter-uninstall/

Being sure to reboot your computer after cleaning up any existing stuff that might have survived the reset of your PC. Then install the new version.
