First you need to add your Gadgets to svcpack\Gadgets.exe, (right click) open in WinRAR and drag&drop your .gadget folders into \Gadgets or \Shared Gadgets (these will go into program files)

Now set the sidebar with the gadgets the way you want, and add your settings.ini from your %userprofile%\appdata\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar (I think that is where its stored) to Gadgets.exe root folder

The Gadgets.exe WinRAR SFX installer should look like this once completed


\Gadgets\<your_gadgets>.Gadget\Shared Gadgets\settings.ini
