I am going to give this a try I'm not up on my gadgets to much.
The gadget folder should be installed to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets which is a hidden folder use this tutorial to unhide it Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

both are just zip folders the first one you can rename the .gadget to .zip and extract it like a normal zip folder and then you can put the contents in the gadget folder in the locations stated above.
Do any of your gadgets work at all?
