Rainworks

By
Rainworks is a set of about 30 skins, each one designed to be compact and used at the top or the bottom of your desktop. Many of the skins come in either a basic option or an upgraded option, providing extended abilities or access to more detailed information.The width of each skin and dropbox is variable to help maintain a continuous bar across your screen width (if desired). Simply middle click any active skin to edit it's layout, settings or available upgrades.

Installation:
• Install Rainmeter: Rainworks requires at least Rainmeter version 2.1 but the latest beta* is recommended and can be found here.[link]
• Install Rainworks: Save the .RMSKIN file to your computer.Run the .RMSKIN file. During install you should leave both check boxes checked**.

Credits:
• The beautiful foliage wallpaper is "Green world" by emmanueliarussi. [link]
• Most of the regular expressions used throughout the suite are adaptations of work by JsMorely and Poiru and I thank them both kindly for their help.
• The upgraded calendar is an amalgamation of calendars by Kaelri and Poiru and contains work by a number of individuals.
• The "startOrb" and "RainRGB" Addons supplied with this suite were created by JSMorely and I thank him for sharing his endless supply of helpfull addons.
• The command line wallpaper changer used by the slideshow was created by Philipp Winterberg.[link]
• The supplied free font is "Aller" by Dalton Maag.

Notes:
• *Use of some of the options in the media player skin will require at least beta rev863.
• **The skins panel in the settings config only works if you have ran the rainworks theme at least once,so leave the option checked on install.
• Unfortunately the volume control skin only works on windows versions Vista or newer.

Known Issues:
• The dual mail skin can get confused and show the wrong account entries.
• Individual entries will only provide a successful link to mails in the google account you are currently logged into.

Updates
> 21-07-11: v1.0.1
• Fixed volume flip
• Fixed slideshow+ flip
• Fixed viewer+ flip
• Added missing "Used" measures to Drives x3 and x4
• Added drive links to Drives
>If you are already running v1.0,you do not need to load the theme from install. Any settings you have changed will remain intact .

Try this,turn rainmeter off,go to C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Addons and delete the CLWCP folder,then run the installer again.Let me know how if that works.

Hello Klaus,

Firstly, are you sure you are entering your username correctly
Username: bobthebuilder (good)
username: bobthebuilder@gmail.com (bad)

Secondly, do you have any special characters in your password,if so,change it.

Thirdly, does your email address end in @gmail.com, if not(eg. a German gmail address) it simply will not work.(although I may be able to find a solution,not sure)

Let me know if all the above are okay and you still have a problem.

Absolutely fantastic! I have found something strange with the volume - when you flip it for bottom screen placement the text and image do not line up, for both regular & volume +. Also, I'm going to do this myself but just a suggestion for future update, for the drive skin make it to where you can access a drive from the "open" menu.

Thanks for the heads up mate.I've found what the problem is.The slideshow+ and viewer+ wont flip correctly either(although it's not really needed on them).Will update the download as soon as I figure out how to make the variables backwards compatible.Will also add drive links in the update,dont know how I over looked that.
