Support ? Aimp 4.7

This version of Aimp cannot be started from Rainmeter using the toggle player bang. Everything else seems fine.
It would be nice if it can be supported too.

I'm not using AIMP so am not sure, however have you tried setting the path with the PlayerPath option?

Yeah it does work with PlayerPath.
It does not work without PlayerPath, but it used to be working before.

Seems that AIMP team has changed something internally.

Good to know. Hope it does work for OP as well.

Thank you guys for the reply. We experienced a storm and there was power outage for a couple of days, so I couldn't get back online soon enough.
A quick follow up question though.
What should my path look like?

C:\User\Program Files\Aimp

Perhaps.......
For the end user?

Oh, man! It just had to be a plugin.
No option 2?

There is, definitely. Doesn't worth either in my opinion to use a plugin for this. You have to identify the path of the .exe file of player and use that one in the PlayerPath option. As said, I don't have AIMP installed, so am not entirely sure, but I suppose it should have been something like C:\User\Program Files\Aimp\Aimp.exe (or something similar).
It'd be much simpler if you have for instance a Total Commander installed, because it has a command to copy the path of the highlighted file. If you have it simply look for the appropriate file, highlight it and click Mark -> Copy Names With Path To Clipboard. Then you have to paste the copied path to the PlayerPath option.
Do you have TC?

Open the folder containing the Aimp.exe (according to your previous post it should be C:\User\Program Files\Aimp) in Explorer. Click the address bar of Explorer. The path of the folder highlights. Copy and paste it to PlayerPath option. Add a backslash (\),then copy the name of the .exe file and paste it after the last backslash added previously.
That's it.
