Re: Can't install .rmskin files

How your rainmeter.ini file end up in a skin folder ?
I don't know. It says that for every .rmskin file I try to install but rainmeter.ini is in fact in C:\Users\Tixy\Appdata\Roaming\Rainmeter
The location of your settings file is very odd. Can you run this tool
and report back?
By the way, you are supposed to install .rmskin files by double-clicking on them (or, alternatively, by right-clicking -> Install Rainmeter skin). You seem to have done something entirely different -- am I correct?
I tried both by double-clicking, and by trying 'Open with' and choosing Rainmeter, and every time the above error would appear.
Anyhow, my problem now seems to be fixed. After Rainmeter reinstall, I hadn't yet rebooted, but when I did, another option appeared in my 'Open with' panel - Rainstaller. That wasn't there before, and now, when I choose to install a .rmskin with it, it does so and the .rmskin file I choose then turns into a folder with the configuration file inside. It still shows an error when I try right click, but since I don't have to do that anymore, it shouldn't be an issue, though it's still odd.
Thank you for your help and sorry for the bother.
