    Rainmeter skin

    Yesterday, when I installed Rainmeter and got my setup going, I was using iTunes to play music and had the Cleartext skin ( and Monstercat vizualizer ( running. Generally it was working fine, I could even use the pause/play/etc functions on Cleartext, but Rainmeter would occasionally crash. Today, though, I'm realizing that any time iTunes is running at the same time as ANY player or visualizer skin Rainmeter instantly crashes. For reference, I am also running a few Honeycomb 2.0 skins (, the Sonder brightness and volume skins (, and the eSystem2 and eTime skins from Elementary 1.5 ( I am also running TranslucentTB and Wallpaper Engine. All of these apps work fine unless I am running BOTH iTunes and a player/visualizer. I tested them out with Spotify and they worked fine, just not with iTunes. Does anyone have a fix for this?
