thanks to rick i got to install the sidebar and it works great

i only have one problem TT.TT none of the drop-down menus (i think that's what they're called...the menus with the small down arrow on the rightside of a white bar that when u click give you more options to click...) work for me, i click them but they don't drop down

does anyone know a way to fix it?

also, thanks again rick for your help before

Thats normal, does not work (you could use the keyboard arrow keys)

Its actually supposed to be a part of the "Search all Gadgets" box but in XP a extra box is added instead


However at least the search box does work fine

BTW there is also no tooltip in the gallery in Vista or 7, you select the gadget and click the "Show Details" to view more info about the gadget

Alky because I was given permission by Rafael the developer only to use the ORIGINAL MSI installer for my addon, he did not even want me to do a admin install to make it smaller

Gadget installer because if it stops working I can repair it with a simple switch

; Repairs Gadget Installer
MSIEXEC /f {3F3733A5-8322-454D-A638-3B74E1C83752} /qn

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

application or computer (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging


For example:


<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />


When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

i have window .net service pack 2
