RainLaunch is a powerful launcher skin for Rainmeter with the ability to have user defined search engines and macros.

8-5-2012
Fixed a bug with user input lists.
Added a new function for use in macros: !WriteToFile
Spaces can now be preserved by using quotes.
A value can now be specified for substituting spaces in user input.

So do you have any alternative; best to use

The error is not in the script but in the user. Feel free to use it with proper attribution.

cool...Can I use the rain.lua script in my skin...
smurfier's avatar
It is extremely old. Someone has also reported a possible issue. Using it in your skin may not be the best idea.

This is amazing smufier Love  Little tip I found useful: I've added a 'ProgramFiles' variable to the RainLaunch.ini so I can use it in the Run.cfg. Eg: firefox="#ProgramFiles#\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Me neither. Smurfier seems to have lost interest in this.

It's not that I've lost interest, I simply cannot find a problem. As long as I set up the macro in the config file then anything on my system will launch.

This is actually pretty cool!
I did not know that the beta could do this! Thanks for sharing it man! :D

It's not that the beta can do it, it's all in the script I wrote. I only require the beta because I can never remember when certain features were introduced.

Ahhha, then kuddos to you! I think its pretty cool, maybe cuz i cant write that kind of code myself haha... anyways thanks again for sharing.

Quick question tho, is it possible to get focus with a hotkey stroke? Say i wanna replace the Win+R combo (or use any other keystroke) and assign it to this skin. Or is there a !Bang that can be used by rainmeter from a 3rd party application to set focus on the meter/skin?

I can say that it's possible, but I'm not the person to ask. Not really an area where my abilities are strong.

Ah okay, i got it working using the "rainmeter.exe" and commands. Is not too hard to configure.

Anyways, thanks for sharing this skin!
