Installing skins 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
When I download the skin and I extract the files where should I be extracting them to (what file)? I have downloaded a few skins and they don't show up for me to use.

Thanx

Re:Installing skins 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
From the FAQ:
There are two kinds of skins for Rainlendar: The old skins which are usually distributed as a zip or rar archive and the new skins which have .r2skin extension.

To install old skins you need to uncompress the skin into the Rainlendar's skins-folder. Make sure that no extra folders are created when you unzip the archive. There must be only one subfolder under the skins-folder where the skin's ini-file(s) are located. After you refresh the calendar the skin should appear in the skin list. If that doesn't happen check the Rainlendar's log file for possible errors.
To install new skins (.r2skin) you can just drag and drop the file over one of the Rainlendar's windows and it will be installed automatically. In Windows you can install the skin also just by double clicking it.
The languages (.r2lang) can be installed the same way as the new skins (i.e. by double clicking or dropping).

Note that if your web browser tries to suggest a different file extension for the new skins instead of the ".r2skin" you need to rename the file back to its original form.


From the Help:
New skins: Just double click the skin file (.r2skin) and it gets installed automatically. Or drop the file over one of the Rainlendar's windows.

Old skins: To install old Rainlendar skins (i.e. the ones that use ini-files) just unzip the skin into the Rainlendar's skins-folder. Make sure that no extra folders are created when you unzip the archive. There must be only one subfolder under the skins-folder where the skin's ini-file(s) are located.
