    I have the Onmino Rainmeter skin and I'm tryng to set up my own links to programs, however I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    I have a panel with icons to other programs by default that work, but when I add my own (e.g. AI Suite or EVGA Precision) the link doesn't work...

    I've tried adding in the bit where you put the path to the application file things like " C:\\Prgram Files............AI SUite II.exe"

    But it doesn't work?

    I use rainmeter quite a bit, not familiar with that skin though. But are you sure you have teh correct path? for some programs you can just right click and copy the target and use that.. but others as you know you have to find where the exe is hidden.

    Could you post a link to the skin you use? I'll see if I can figure it out myself, plus if I like the skin I'll keep it! lol

    I use Enigma and APB

    heres what mine looks like, I use it at work on my 2nd monitor.

    Thanks, I forgot to include the AI Suite ii folder in the file path (silly me) works fine now.

    Only thing I had a problem with was getting a my computer link. I just got the relevant panel and copied out the link and put it in another.

    I'll show the link to Onmino (if that's right) tomorrow. You've seen my desktop, right?

    Be changed some things around since then, but it's pretty much the same.

    If I remember, I'll upload a newer screenie.

    The tiles and digital clock were Onmino. Analog clock is Enigma.

    I really liked that tile system, I may just have to use that on my home desktop though I like a clutter free desktop haha no icons at all on it, and only 4 items pinned on my task bar

    The my computer panel was made with the rounded panel.

    I then edited the name and linked to a new logo. Then copied the link address from another my computer panel.

    Photo shop and Vegas were the panels I made myself. If you look in the gallery of items, somewhere near the bottom ok the first page is a panel creator. Add a link, name and picture and later you can customise the colour top. You can have the panel so it looks like the others, W8 style, or another which I forgot :-\

    Just in case you wanted to know,the two dots under the log off button in to top right are to show/hide the rain meter desktop.

    In the middle are some rss feeds,and clicking the different squares underneath brings up the weather,more news, a todo list and more.

    On the left edge in the centre are three white lines. Click on that side brings up a W8 style menu bar.

    I made a few changes by adding the tape on the top left panel, and the text shortcuts on the bottom right.

    I also opened up the settings panel thing and centred it for you. The only things I use from it are links to program files, so I could set that as a text link...

    Nice, looks real good!

    No problem, I found someone using Onmino in the "Show us your desktop " thread, so you have that guy to thank really.
