Rainmeter crashing versions 4.5.14 - 4.5.15

Post by rabra »

Hi Rainmeter team,

crashing has started after Rainmeter version 4.5.14 and this is how it manifests at my PC.

Rainmeter 4.5.14:
- crashing after installation of new skins
- cannot load newly installed skins - crashes
- old skins load fine

Rainmeter 4.5.15:
- crash on unload skin
- crash on refresh skin
- on load layout (empty)
- on exit Rainmeter

Lately, I have been using only one skin to display music info. I have made some screenshots of the error. Trying to fix it only made Rainmeter completely unusable.

After manually deleting Rainmeter.ini cannot load any of the skins in my skin folder (not even illustro).

I attached Rainmeter.log file, but it lists only OS since Rainmeter cannot load any skin.

Best regards, Nikola.

Reverted back to Rainmeter 4.5.13.3632 (64-bit) until bug is fixed.

All best, Nikola.

I have the same (serious) bug, started just after updating to 4.5.15 (today). All skins, all layouts. Every change to layout triggers a crash (sometimes a freeze).
For me, reverting to 4.5.14 makes things work well again.

Same thing here.

On one computer I had to revert to 4.5.13, on the other 4.5.14 is running well.

For me, I had crashes happening when:
- unloading two specific skins, both including "Now Playing" measure. (Manually unloading or changing Layout)
- Clicking "Refresh All"
I think maybe no problem.

Hmmm. I believe I have fixed the NowPlaying crash, and also rabra's issue. But I am not sure on the other issues, although they may be related to one of the fixes as well.

Could you guys test this version?

Thanks!

Hi Brian,

it seems that skin loading/unloading bug has been fixed.

I find that SetPosition bang in NowPlaying now does not work. I use it in combination with a mouse variable when i click on the progress bar, but it stats song from the beginning instead setting it in selected time position of song.

LeftMouseDownAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureArtist" "SetPosition $MouseX:%$"][!Update][!Redraw]

Example:

Code: Select all

[MeterProgressSeek]
Meter=IMAGE
W=200
H=8
X=0
Y=0
SolidColor=255,0,0,1
DynamicVariables=1
LeftMouseDownAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureArtist" "SetPosition $MouseX:%$"][!Update][!Redraw]
MouseOverAction=[!ShowMeter "MeterProgressBarDot"][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!HideMeter "MeterProgressBarDot"][!Redraw]
I attached screenshot.

Best regards, Nikola.

Hello. Rainmeter also closes for me when I close or open skins. I have tried the 4.5.16 prerelease and it happens to me too, albeit after a period of system crash. With version 4.15.14 it did not happen.

Hi Brian,

***This might NOT be related...****

I found moving skins sluggish and explorer.exe high CPU usage.

Can you check if this is, by any chance, related to Rainmeter.

All Best, Nikola.

@rabra:
Could you please post new bugs in the Bugs section of this forum, instead of adding to this discussion?
I will look into the SetPosition issue when I get some time.

I cannot replicate your Explorer.exe issue. I don't think it is Rainmeter related.


@HiTBiT-PA:
Could you elaborate on your issue a little bit.
Which Windows version are you using?
What does after a period of system crash mean to you? Your entire system (ie. Windows) crashes? Or just Rainmeter?
Does the crash happen less freqently on 4.5.16 vs 4.5.15?



Thanks for all the testing guys, I appreciate it.
