Missing QuotePlugin DLL

Post by Space_Crime »

One of my skins is not working and somehow this dll file is missing:-

Plugin=Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll

Ive re-installed Rainmeter but still does not work

Where can I download this safely??

I've googled but some websites are 'not safe'

Thanks

Try changing that line to:

Code: Select all

Plugin=QuotePlugin

I think this can't really help, because for backward compatibility reasons, the Plugin=Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll form of the option should also work. I assume instead that the plugins QuotePlugin.dll file has been removed (accidentally?) from the system (however in this case a reinstall should have been add it back).

The location of the file should be C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll. Check if it's there

Thank you both.

Got it working and correct path was:-

Plugin=Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll

The error was a character error inside the meter section of that code.

Might be, however as jsmorely said above, this form of the option, even if does work, is an extremely old form and should not be used. Plugin=QuotePlugin is completely enogh.

You are correct, both type works so I discarded the older form and replaced it with the one suggested: Plugin=QuotePlugin
