You might want to re-read the original post a little more carefully. He IS trying to reinstall Rainmeter.

Not sure I can follow. I suppose "rainmeter setup tool" is the Rainmeter installer? If so, how can you reinstall the installer? :confused:
Sorry if I'm misunderstanding something...

net user <your user name>

This command should dump out a bunch of stuff about your user account. What does the "Local Group Memberships" say?

Code: Select all

Local Group Memberships      *Administrators       *Performance Log Users
                             *Users
Are you in the Administrators group?
That it is you requested

I am experiencing the very same issue
I do run the very latest Windows Insider updates and also wonder if it might be related to that

You should look at this post by the DevTeam.
I would look closely at the last 3 questions in the first list:
8. Is there any 3rd party antivirus software installed (other than Windows Security/Defender) ?
Space
9. Is there any Ransomware Protection activated (like Windows Security Ransomeware Protection) ?
Space
10. Have you modified your OS in anyway that might be relevant to this issue? Things like changing the default location of program installations, using sym links, altering any visual components of the OS, etc.
Finally, I would recommend following the second list of steps in that post for clean uninstall and re-install attempt.

I also have no option to install... currently on Windows 10 Pro Insider Build 21277.

I have tried
- 4.4 Beta and 4.3.1 Final
- Running with and without administrator permissions
- Installing to the OS(C) drive as well as my Programs(D) drive
- Standard and portable installs
- Disabling all antivirus
- Running in troubleshooting mode

Everything leads me to the same screen, here

I'm assuming from this and the everyone else here that this is an Insider issue

This is a brand new install of Windows that I got last week, this is my first attempt at installing on here.

This is not the latest Insider build. Yours is from October, the latest is from December. If I don't miss something.
