Rip or R.I.P gadgets / Widgets ??

Sunday, November 1, 2015 by neophil78 | Discussion: Life, the Universe and Everything

Hi all,

 

Where have been stored the RIP (or R.I.P 2007 ?) gadgets / widgets ? which i used at least for calendar in there : https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/screenshots/21453/ :

Can't find on Wincustomize and it it was a premium suite where to download it again (not appearing in my Stardock account ... )

 

Thanks in advance

Could depend on the DTX version I suppose.  I'm on the older non-pro 3.5 version, I think Jim's on a newer Pro version.  I'm just throwing that out in case it's useful - I'm not interested in getting my own non-working stuff to work.  I installed DTX this time around with the approach of "If something in particular works - it works, if it doesn't - it doesn't."

Dave, matters not for gadgets. Gadgets work even if you don't have DesktopX.

Jim I cannot remember the details and not sure if this even applies but was there not a fix that you and I talked about a while back for making gadgets work on a 64bit machine something about replacing a file in the 64 bit sidebar folder with the one from the 32bit folder or are we talking about standalone gadgets which are not dependent on that?

       You are correct Ken, twice.

There is a fix for the sidebar gadgets, and this thread is about regular gadgets.

Which DX version do you get ?

Doesn't matter. Gadgets work on any machine, even ones that have no DX.

 

But I use DesktopX Pro Beta 4 (3.96).

For the record, the Win7 rig I am running the gadget on has no DesktopX installed.

Fresh install of Win 7 64 bit. Nothing added but one teeny tiny gadget.

Uvah

At least now I can get some gadgets. Didn't remember which ones were the stand-alones.

Tested on several PC and config :

1 XP SP3 without DesktopX installed : Stardock Clock gadgets working OK

3 XP SP3 with 2 different versions of DesktopX, same result

1 Seven 32 bits without DesktopX installed : Stardock clock gadgets all working

The one with Seven Pro 64 bits (DesktopX 3.50) ! none of the Stardock clock gadgets coming with their (old) premium suites not working; wherever i put the  Gadgets folder ...On this PC all your clock gadgets are perfectly working ...   (well that's a trouble to get a terrible headache)

Let me ask, is your DesktopX 3.50 the Pro version?

If so, it won't allow anything scripted to run.

It shouldn't affect gadgets, but maybe it does.

I don't think it's the PRO version (got it with my Object Desktop subscription)

Anyway i found solution to run the RIP Clock on my Sevn Pro 64 bits : just hold the pictures from the "AppData" coming with the gadget and re did it as a widget, perfectly running

 

But that's not explaining why those specific Stardock gadgets won't run on it ...
