Vista Rainbar is an add-on pack for Rainmeter, which consists of an easy-to-use sidebar and over 20 stunning gadgets -- from RSS readers to weather -- to decorate your desktop.

On top of all that Vista Rainbar is very light when it comes to system resources -- you get the eye-candy without the expense of valuable system resources. What a deal!

Changelog: [link]

Supported on Windows XP, Vista, 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

Requires Rainmeter 1.1 or higher. Get it from www.rainmeter.net

This skin is programmatic excrement. If you attempt to configure it to your liking there's a good chance your machine will get so fucked-up that a Reset is the only alternative.

Is this still supported?  It's *exactly* what I was looking for, however, I can't seem to use any of the links on the skins themselves.  For example, I cannot click the wrench icon on the weather to set my location.  I can't click the arrows on the calendar to change months forward and backwards.  Any assistance is appreciated!

I like your works, Poiru. Actually I've been using Vista Rainbar from your work since 4.6.
I wonder if we can click on the Calendar small arrows to see previous or next month calendar.
Thank you Poiru. Love your works.

Hi "poiru",
your theme "vista rainbar" works very well, but cannot be installed as announced on your website, because a *.rmskin file is missing in your download. Otherwise it's easy to copy the files manually as requested to the directories of rainmeter
as I did. I created a website in German for german customers:

with descriptions about installation and configuring the gadgets. If you like this, I could create an English website like this for you, or you can use a link to a site on my server.

Hi, this is due to Internet Explorer changing the file extension of the downloaded file from .zip to .rmskin. Change it back to .rmskin and double click to install :)

Sorry for late reply!

Thank you!
I tried the download link with firefox - the file extension is .rmskin, and can be installed by rainstaller as you claimed!

can i port it to windows 7 style and update the images? I will give you full credit.

Maybe 7meter is a good name.

Sure you can, but what is Windows 7 style? IIRC, these should match Windows 7 perfectly.
