Does anyone know why this isn't working?
« on: October 31, 2014, 12:34:25 AM »

Basically I'm trying to get the path/directory of Network Connetions its C:\Windows\System32\ncpa.cpl when I put it in a shortcut it works, but when I put it in notepad it does not.
Everything else works like Defrag, windows update and disk clean. Ive posted some attachments

I think you have to use Control http://support.microsoft.com/kb/192806

The problem is you are trying to do it the wrong way. I haven't used rainmeter for sometime but a quick check of the manual confirms that !execute has been depreciated. You should use LeftMouseUpAction=

The second thing which is incorrect is the way you are trying to execute the control panel app. you need to use c:\windows\system32\control.exe first and then the app name as an argument, see example.

LeftMouseUpAction=["c:\windows\system32\control.exe" "ncpa.cpl"]

The above example should work as you need.
