    Windows 8.1


    I did change my statement to "CreateObject."

    I figured out my problem and it's working, now! The "Bubbles" on my desktop is a shortcut, not a copy. The problem was that when I created it, it named itself "Bubbles - Shortcut" and I hadn't noticed! I just renamed it to just "Bubbles" and now everything is working! I can't tell you how relieved I am. What an obvious solution!

    Thanks for your help, everyone!

    *Her desktop!

    I'm using a simple application called Rainmeter and the skins I'm using on it (all downloaded separately) are called Encoded, Serenity, Enigma and Enigma Launchers.

    I'm having the same problem others were having before with the file could not be found error. I've followed all the instructions and tried all the solutions in the reply's but nothing has worked. Another thing that's strange is the shortcut to the scr won't even launch when trying to start manually on the desktop, it just gives some kind of message saying that this program can't run on your operating system. Does this not work anymore? If finkey or someone else reply's confirming it does still I can give more information and screenshots.

    Edit: Never mind, I found my problem.
