Worked fine for me, more specific, when you say it won't work, what happens exactly? Won't install, won't display, won't give correct info? A Guy

Thanks a lot for your help. To be exact, it looks like there is no problem for the installation but it doesn't appear in the gadget list.

Check in the C:\Users\(Your Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets folder, there should be a folder there named:

Blue_Microsoft_Calendar_Gadget_by_rapha2.gadget

If not do a search for rapha2 and see if it was placed somewhere else.

P.S. It shows on gadgets screen just as Calandar, and white, so see if you might have more than one Calendar listed now

Unfortunately it's not in C:\Users\(Your Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets and I can't find it anywhere else

Looking at the comments of some guys here at DeviantArt, looks like I'm not alone in this case but I'm wondering what are we doing wrong.

Thanks again for your help. I hope we'll find a solution ;-)

OK, easy enough. download the gadget again. Rename to:

Blue_Microsoft_Calendar_Gadget_by_rapha2.zip

You'll get the warning that changing extensions blah, blah, blah...just click ok, now you'll have a zip file.

Extract the files to a folder on your desktop named:

Blue_Microsoft_Calendar_Gadget_by_rapha2

Drop that folder into C:\Users\(Your Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets folder

Check your gadgets and it should be there. If not, here's something you might like too:

Let us know how it went, good luck. A Guy

I'm sorry, I missed a step, if you still have the folder in gadgets, rename it to:

Blue_Microsoft_Calendar_Gadget_by_rapha2.gadget

We'll figure this out! But if folder is in gadgets, I think my missed step will now do it, sorry about that

I have tried the blue calendar, dark calendar, even the windows 7 default orange calendar. None show any data.

Did an update just two days ago. Wondering if that is it.

Didn't mean to steal your thunder, just saying others have this problem too.
