K, so is there any setting that I need as this isn't working for be?

Maybe I am missing it. Will look again in a bit when back at my PC. But didn't notice if before.

Try to run RTSS before HWiNFO, also the FPS might appear only after you run some graphics application/game.

So, I got it working on the main PC. It works great. However, it doesn't seem to work on the second machine. Basically, I use server mode on one PC and look at the info on another centralized PC. Everything is working as it should with that set up except for some reason the RTSS values that show on the server machine are not showing on the other? Any idea why that may be? Both are pro and registered.

Hard to say without seeing more details. Try to reconnect the system when the RTSS FPS value is being shown.

Hello Martin!
The problem is of this nature. RivaTuner cannot load data sources from HWiNFO64 version.

From the HWiNFO32 version, data sources are loaded without problems.

I got this error after running HWiNFO64 7.22, now older versions don't work either.

With the option "Shared Memory Support" it works, without it it does not work.
Previously, this option was always disabled.

I believe you have to be using a pro version for it to stay on constantly I believe. I.E. it may turn off after 8 hours if you are using the free version. But others may know better.

HWiNFO32/64 now introduces the support of RivaTuner OSD (Statistics) Server which allows displaying of any HWiNFO32/64 sensor values in DirectX applications/games.
The OSD Server is part of one of the following packages:
- RivaTuner (no longer updated)
- MSI Afterburner
- EVGA Precision

Download the latest HWiNFO32 or HWiNFO64 version (v3.81 at least).

Besides HWiNFO32/64 you need to have the OSD/Statistics Server running as well. This is included in any of these packages: RivaTuner or EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner. Download one of them (any you prefer) and start the Statistics Server before opening HWiNFO32/64 Sensors.

In HWiNFO32/64 go to Sensors/Configure and set your preferred values to be included in the RivaTuner OSD - for each value needed to be shown in OSD click "Show" in the RivaTuner OSD section.

Submit feedback ;)

Many thanks to Alex (aka Unwinder) for making this possible !
HWinfo Pro user here. I have a more specific question which goes beyond the common OSD; I'm talking about the "new" RivaTuner Overlay Editor, which only gives the possibility to add the current live status of any value (so no max, min, avg). I was thinking, since it doesn't seems possible to circumvent the issue from the Overlay Editor side, is there a way (for example) to mock the max (or avg, min) value as current live value from the HWinfo's side and then feed it to the Overlay Editor? Or any other solutions? Thank you

HWiNFO exposes also Min/Max/Average values. If the RTSS Overlay Editor doesn't allow selecting these, then it's not possible this way. This might be a feature suggestion for RTSS.
You can achieve this also the other way around - by letting HWiNFO push data straight into RTSS where you can choose which value type will be used. This is available in the OSD (RTSS) tab in sensor settings.

Yeah that's what I ended up doing at last, even if it screwed a bit my layout since it isn't aware of the layers that I created in the editor, but one way or another I managed to match the two things. Thanks for the quick reply.
