Running Rainmeter again will not bring Rainmeter back - the process is just frozen.
Killing Rainmeter.exe and then running it will get it to work.
The same situation happens for the both scenarios:
• when I choose to unload all skins in Game Mode;
• when I choose to load some layout in Game mode.
While Rainmeter is frozen:
• Running rainmeter.exe again will not show the tray icon and skins;
• Installing a skin will not restart rainmeter.exe, and, same as above, will not show skins and tray icon.
Since it seem that no one has reported this before, could it be another Windows 7 quirk?
