[BUG] Rainmeter 4.5.12.3616 crash with UsageMonitor Plugin skins

Post by circcc »

OS: windows 7 x86

I installed new Rainmeter 4.5.12.3616, and Rainmter is crashed in all skins that use the UsageMonitor plug-in . Previous versions do not have this problem. I test it with clean install.

sample:

Code: Select all

[MeasureTopRAMUsage1]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=UsageMonitor
Alias=RAM
Index=1

My skins use enormous numbers of UsageMonitor measures and they are all working fine with 4.5.12. I do not have a 32-bit Win 7 environment like yours to test with, but my guess is the problem is most likely on your end.

It doesn't help.
Rainmeter 4.5.12.3616 with that test skin(UsageMonitor section) have the same problem.
It seems new Rainmeter bug, not my system.

Then, I think It is only windows 7 x86 problem.

@circcc

I think I see the problem. Could you open the Rainmeter.exe.config (it's in Program Files\Rainmeter folder) in a text editor, and remove the sku= field?

So, after removing the sku, the file should look like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
	<startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
		<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" />
		<supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
	</startup>
</configuration>
Save the file, then restart Rainmeter.

Or you can try this test version:

EDIT:
I just saw your edit. Well, the answer is to install a newer version of .NET. See the link below.



Well, I have no idea unless you do not have any modern .NET version installed on your machine.

I can only replicate your issue on 32-bit Windows 7 (without the Rainmeter.exe.config changes). 64-bit Windows 7 seems to work fine.
After fixing the Rainmeter.exe.config file, the issue goes away for me.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is supposed to come with .NET 4.7 (I believe).

Current ISO downloads of Windows 7 32-bit come with the following .NET versions:

Code: Select all

2.0.50727.5420 Service Pack 2
3.0.30729.5420 Service Pack 2
3.5.30729.5420 Service Pack 1
4.0.0.0
4.7.02053
Current ISO downloads of Windows 7 64-bit come with the following .NET versions:

Code: Select all

2.0.50727.5420 Service Pack 2
3.0.30729.5420 Service Pack 2
3.5.30729.5420 Service Pack 1
4.0.0.0
4.7.03062
Versions retrieved using this tool: https://github.com/jmalarcon/DotNetVersions/releases

Slight various on the version number, but the .exe.config file should force the use of "older" versions.

I guess you could try downloading .NET 4.7.1 and see if that helps:

I installed .NET 4.8.
Rainmeter 4.5.12.3616 is working now. Rainmeter.exe.config edit doesn't need.
Thanks.
