For the Rainmeter Grayhound Skin to work you need to two products for the installation.


HWiINFO is a popular, free and amazingly detailed hardware information tool for Windows. It digs deep into the guts of your system and extracts all the details it can find. A natural choice and source for Rainmeter skins. I wish the Rainmeter team would support and document it better. Thanks to other Rainmeter skin developers it has been proven as a suitable Rainmeter metering source.

Once you have installed HWiINFO it needs to be started and configured to work with Rainmeter. My documentation below is based on what I found in the Gadgets skin by SilverAzide.

HWiNFO setup for Rainmeter
