Sorry for bringing this old topic back from the death, but did someone get the cpu-temperature to work? I'm trying now, but it gives me errors about a plug in not found.

that's because you need to download the plug-in - it doesn't come with the skin.

i've just spent 15 mins googling for the plugin, but no'll have to find it yourself, sorry

Windows 7 x64

it's this skin I want to use:
taboo_Vision Rainmeter skin by ~jamien-price on deviantART

the plugin is in a seperate folder in the zip file, and it uses the coretemp.dll which is in the folder. When I enable the cpu temp ini, it says that it can't find the plugin, while I put the plugin in every folder in the installed location, just to make sure it can find the plugin.

Coretemp as a standalone runs just fine, but why it won't work with rainmeter is beyond me.

So, if anyone got it to work, I would love to hear how you did it.

Many thanks for the help so far guys!


additional information

I just opened the .ini file and this was in it:



I made sure that "CoreTempPlugin.dll" was everywhere where it should and shouldn't be, but to no avail...

I also found this (

saying something about compiling for certain OS-es but Win7, but I don't get that part entirely, it is a bit to technical for me.

So, am I hitting a dead end here?
