Maybe You will need to update the HWiNFO IDs included in "Documents|Rainmeter|Skins|Opacity|SETTINGS|" "" to match the IDs for your system. To do this:
1 - ensure HWiNFO is running, with sensors and shared memory active
2 - run the included "Documents|Rainmeter|Skins|Opacity|resources|HWINFO|-|HWINFO-V5|"HWiNFOSharedMemoryViewer.exe" file - you can also launch this by clicking the Mainboard skin
3 - find the sensor reading you need (CPU Usage for example) and get the ID at the bottom right
4 - edit "" "" to replace the provided ID with the ID for your system
5 - refresh the skin

Still working on Windows XP and your latest version here does not load with the older operating system.  Do any of your older versions of Opacity work with XP?  (If so, leave a post here with a link or download).
