Windows 7: Windows Sidebar

Hi Ted,

That is Alvin's cousin Greedy. He's an eastern chipmunk. He has four peanuts stuffed into his mouth and is trying to figure out how to get the fifth one in far enough to get the sixth one still in my hand. They store them for winter. Pretty smart for a rodent and easily tamed if not harrassed. If I hold on to the peanut, I can pick him right off the ground. He won't let go. They're funny little critters.

Hello Gary!

Now that you mention it I see the stripe down his back, cool!
I kind of thought it was something like that.
Yeah they store things for winter like squirrels.
I'm from north eastern Ohio.

Hello kallib85,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Did you move the sidebar from Vista into 7? Which gadget? What happens when to try to install a gadget? Seven doesn't have a sidebar. The gadgets reside on the desktop.

Please keep us posted.

Well, I just found out what I did wrong, I did not creat a folder in the windows sidebar in program files,just had to extract with Winrar and creat a folder with the name and put .Gadget at the end.

But thanx for the answer
