(Solved) Need help with the Desktop Gadgets galery

WeatherLab-10 gadget is not displayed in the Desktop Gadgets gallery...

Thursday, October 18, 2018 by Vad_M | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk


I've uploaded WeatherLab-10 into Desktop Gadget gallery about month ago. Here is the link: https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/desktop_gadgets/602/

But the gadget is not displayed in the Desktop Gadgets Gallery: https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/desktop_gadgets and also in the List of My Skins: https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/all/pagesize/30/view/list/author/Vad_M

I've tried to upload the gadget once again, but it still does not appear... Please, help me to solve this problem!

It should appear shortly in the Gallery.

For some reason it was set for Personal Gallery only.

So it was my mistake? But it seems to me that all the checkboxes were unchecked when I uploaded the gadget... Any way, I will be more attentive now.  Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The program crashes for me with "unhandled exception"..."The parameter is incorrect".

When I clicked on the exe I got a green square on the top left of my screen with the actual widget in the center. On all of the windows including the one where it say to look up longitude and latitude online which I had to copy. I set it up for where I live in West Chester Pa. but it gives me the weather in West Chester Iowa instead. Look at the screenshot. You can see the green border and the mismatched weather.

Hi Uvah,

I'm sorry but the gadget works fine on my both computers (Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 10 1803):

Therefore, please pay attention to the step by step instruction:

1. Close the gadget. Then go to "C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Local\SD Gadgets" and completely remove the "WeatherLab-10" folder with all content.

2. Run the gadget again. You'll see something like this:

3. Click "Find Longitude and Latitude online".

4. Type "West Chester, Pennsylvania", press "Find" and you'll got coordinates of your home location.Then enter this data into the Geo Location box:

5. Enter the name of location "West Chester, Pennsylvania" and press Save.

6. Open Favorites Organizer and find your location in the Internal Data Base or Find City Code online:

7. Then press "Save" (the button with the diskette icon). Also you may remove the default "Kiev, Ukraine" location.

8. Finally press the green arrow icon (List of Cities) and get the weather forecast:

That's all... I hope the gadget will work for you now.

Best Regards. Vad.

P.S. About a green square. I've never seen it... May be this is a problem with your Video Card or WindowBlinds skin... Who knows???...
