Getting Started Confusion
#1
I have a Windows 10 system with HWiNFO, Rainmeter, and the HWiNfo plugin for Rainmeter installed.

I read through this page:
Rainmeter plug-in for HWiNFO 3.2
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Rain...HWiNFO-3-2

Which pointed me to this page about making measures:
Rainmeter plug-in for HWiNFO 2.0
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Rain...HWiNFO-2-0

No where does it say what file do I edit. Do I edit Rainmeter.ini in my '..\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter' folder?

Or do I need to create a 'hwinfo default' folder in the '..\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\Layouts' folder and create a Rainmeter.ini file there?

Or do I need to make an hwinfo.ini file in an hwinfo folder in the application folder under '..\Defaults\Skins'?

I even found this thread:
Working with the HWiNFO plugin
https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=21939

And looked up the manual:
Rainmeter - Measures
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/measures/


I can't find anywhere what file I'm supposed to be editing when making measures or what file I need to edit in order to customize the HWiNFO skin.

Thanks!

Hi winfo,

The measures and meters are in the skin. For the demo skin provided on this site, the skin file itself is located here:
"C:\Users\-username-\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\HWiNFO\HWiNFO.ini"

The skin measures reference variables which are stored in a separate file. This makes it easier to configure the plugin as the editable values are all in one short list. This variable file is here:
"C:\Users\-username-\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\HWiNFO\@Resources\HWiNFO.inc"

This is all standard Rainmeter structure. Please check their site for documentation on creating skins, measures and meters. This forum is specific information regarding the HWiNFO plugin only. It is to compliment their full platform documentation.

I hope this helps!

Yes, very helpful!

I don't think I would ever have found it, I wasn't able to find a reference to the location in the documentation and none of the tutorials mentioned it.

Thanks!
