install new skins. problem. 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
I downloaded two skins from the internet site DevianArt.
I changed the file extension from .zip compressed a .r2skin and I tried to install them.
Pops up a message: the skin does not contain the file "skin.xml". Are you sure it's a skin in xml format of Rainlendar?
The two skins are:

Analogitel,
RoundAero.

It means that what is contained in the sites section Rainlendar skins is not fully compatible with the software of Rainlendar?
Thank you.

You should not change the file extension. The old format skins should be uncompressed manually to the Rainlendar's skins folder. The automatic skin installation works only for the newer xml format skins.

I am having the same problem with installing skins xml type skins. I have done it both ways, unzipping to the skins folder and dropping and dragging method. Neither have been successful.

When I unzip to skins folder and refresh, the skin is not visible. When I try to drag and drop, I to get the message: "Unable to install the skin." "The skin doesn't contain the skin.xml file."

I have verified that the xml file is there and it is an xml file.

I am also trying to design my own skin, using the tutorial. I am still at the beginning stage, but I cannot view it. I wasn't able to view the file. When I installed the recent "beta" version, the file became visible, but I do not get a calendar window.

I really enjoy using the look and feel of your software and want to learn to create and add skins. Can you help me out with these issues.

Thank you.

Attached is the skin I am working on. Could you give me some pointers. I have very little knowledge about scripting, but do understand about tags being opened and closed. Thank you.

Welcome, ellmoe2000.

In your file, there is a spelling error:
<element>
...
</element>

Should be:
<elements>
...
</elements>

Thank you so much. I did not catch that. I'll try to be more careful. I added the "s" and it worked. Thanks again.
