One Rainmeter skin won't display on all virtual desktops

Postby tk_ » 07.12.2015 03:42:13

Hello,

Noob on the forums here, but not to computers.

I have searched the forums, and found plenty of posts/answers about using Rainmeter with Dexpot, and having different skins on different virtual desktops. My issue is just the opposite: I have one Rainmeter skin that will only show on the desktop that it was activated on, but won't show on any of the others automatically. ALL other skins show on all desktops, except for this one and I can't figure out why.

The skin is eVolume by esnooze: http://esnooze.deviantart.com/art/eVolume-359090902

Rainmeter version: 3.3.0 beta r2468 64bit
Dexpot version: 1.6.13, build 2439
Win 7 Home Premium 64bit

Any ideas why only this one Rainmeter skin won't show on all desktops when all my other skins will?

Thank you

It appears this was moved from the Support forum to this Plugins forum. I don't know why because this does not involve any plugins...

Thank you,

Over 700 views, and I guess either everyone is also stumped, or I didn't include whatever was necessary to get a response.

The only reason would be a setting in 'VDMConfig.ini' in '%AppData%\Roaming\Rainmeter' folder telling this skin to only show on a particular desktop.
Delete any references to [eVolume] in 'VDMConfig.ini' and save the file.
The skin will appear on all desktops.

:dex:,

gave it a try and can confirm the issue is non-existent with the default configuration.
