Why NXT OS Visualizer Is Not Working?

The visualizer on the NXT-OS doesn’t show on the display because of a bug in the visualizer skin or a corrupted system file1 (.ini) of the app.

So, let’s jump into the fix.

How to Fix NXT OS Visualizer Not Working Issue?

As we’ve already mentioned that either a visualizer skin bug or a damaged file can be the reason for the above-mentioned issue, here are the solutions to both issues:

Solution 1: Restart the Visualizer

If the visualizer isn’t working because of a bug, you need to restart the OS to check if the visualizer working or not. Many NXT-OS users have fixed the visualizer simply by rebooting it.

To restart the NXT-OS,

  • Go to the taskbar from the bottom-right corner of your display and exit the OS.
  • Once the NXT-OS is closed, relaunch it.
  • Finally, check if the issue is resolved or not. If not, then try the next solution below.

Solution 2: Fix the Corrupted File

If the previous method doesn’t work for you, then the main file of the game drawer is corrupted and needs to modify. Fortunately, you don’t need to modify the file manually. Just follow the instruction below and the issue will be solved in minutes.

  • Copy the code from the modified file named “visualizer.ini” from this GitHub link.
  • Now, go to the folder location where the NXT-OS is installed. The default path for the original NXT-OS file is:

Documents > Rainmeter > Skins > NXT-OS > Visualizer > Resources > Scripts

  • Now, open the visualizer.ini with notepad, press CTRL + A to select all, and paste the copied code by pressing CTRL + V.
  • Once the code is replaced, press CTRL + S to save the changes and close the notepad.
  • Finally, restart the NXT OS and open the Visualizer.

After this, the issue is supposed to be resolved. If not, then follow the next solution below.

Solution 3: Try Another Visualizer

It happens that the visualizer skin is corrupted and if this is the case, the visualizer won’t work on your NXT-OS. Here is the solution for that:

  • Go to your web browser and download any visualizer from this link.
  • Once the visualizer skin is downloaded successfully, install it with the Rainmeter Skin Installer.
  • Once the skin is installed successfully, play music and open “Manage Rainmeter”.
  • Click on the “Skin” tab, expand the name of the visualizer (VisBubble for example), click BarExtender.ini or visualizer.ini, and click “Load”.
  • The Visualizer will instantly appear on your screen. If you still can see the visualizer, then go to “visualizer.ini” and select the position as “On desktop”.
