Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is at once an application and a toolkit. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

"Unofficial" means that this package is not maintained by the Rainmeter developers. The setup file is the same you would download on the official website.

$packageName = 'rainmeter'
$url = ''
$silentArgs = '/S /PORTABLE=0 /STARTUP=1'
$osBitness = Get-ProcessorBits
if ($osBitness -eq 64) {
  $silentArgs = '/S /VERSION=64 /PORTABLE=0 /STARTUP=1'
$fileType = 'exe'

Install-ChocolateyPackage $packageName $fileType $silentArgs $url

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
