  • Fix doesn't work for me. No errors when configuring the gadget nor errors in the output box on startup, nor on the patcher. The black viewports still remain.

  • [QUOTE=Squiddy;32801817]Damn, is there a version of this for XP?[/QUOTE] you can just unzip the sdk_core into the bin directories after you've run the SDK itself.

  • [QUOTE=NotExactly;32826598]This is probably a really stupid question but what's an SDK gadget?[/QUOTE] Gadgets are mini-programs that offer information at a glance and provide easy access to frequently used tools. Some of the gadgets that come with Windows 7 are Calendar, Clock, Weather, Feed Headlines, Slide Show, and Picture Puzzle.
