Not at all, my friend.    I have no luck with my new system because of DesktopX 3.5 bugs - my SD Media Player doesn't work with media library, ID3 tags, etc... So I'm not happy yet.  (

Very interesting bug. Never seen anything like this...

Hmmmm... I have no any ideas right now. First of all try to reinstall the gadget. May be this will help you.

As well what is your system - version of OS + hardware (processor/memory)? I need this info to analyze the problem.

Hmmm... Your system configuration is more than enough. So the gadget must work on your computer!   

This problem looks like the main script (may be its timers) has been stoped by some external process during cross fading (between the gadget's displays)... I can't understand why this happens! May be some antivirus/antispyware software?...

Are you see the other displays - Clock, Calculator, Weather, etc...? I.e. the gadget don't show you only the Calendar? Or it doesn't show nothing?

And one more little question: are any other widgets/gadgets can work on your computer?

I'm using Symantec Antivirus.The other displays works perfect.When the everything is off and I click on the calendar it stays black like in the picture.When I used the clock (or any other display) when i click to change into calendar it stays with the clocks display (of one of the others).Before thats i have just installed to see these gadgets/widgets: SD_Weatherlab , K-display and SD_calendar but it didnt show too.They are now deleted even desktop X.I reinstall it again but its still the same:) and i'm using Rainlendar 2 maybe it has to do something.

Sorry my friend,

but I really can't help you. The situation you have told about may be only in one case - some fatal error must be in the main script. But I tested it once again and has not found any errors! This is Mysticism (or Gremlins) don't allow you to see a Calendar...  (

I think we all forget what a really great life we all have in this country, so we down load this awesome piece of work, from and ARTIST like you and all we seam to do is com plane. If your having trouble with your it then take the initiative and try to fix it yourself. Vad M is an artist in the truest sence, driven by political up heavel and totally misunderstood by his peers.Vad m. I salute you and am totally humbled by your ability to to create such awesome work and still have the strength to get up every morning and face what you have to face each and every day. Your family is in our prayers every night and we pray for your safety as well. Thank you for theses small glimpses into your life and the mind of a true artiste'

Thank you for your hot words!

Yes. The situation in my country is not good. However we work on Impeachment for our damn president now. This mad person must go away (and I hope he will go into the nearest prison). As well we work on a new laws that will finally establish true democracy in Ukraine. So I think that all will be good around me much soon.

Works just fine on Vista Home Premium, 64 bit... one thing though. Wish there were a control to 1. rename the older internal menu to either change instances from XP to Vista and 2. move to different monitor, I'd prefer this on my second monitor as the main monitor is used for 3d work and widgets often times interfere with the 3D work area (you can actually see the png's ghosting through the 3D work space's UI. Not good but a short coming that Stardock or MS has not gotten figured out as of yet. So I ask you Vad, is there a hack that I can do to get both of these options accomplished or is your code hard coded? If not you will have to do a little hand holding with me as I'm not all that good with hacking code. I've played around in Linux but that was years and years ago. Thanks for the fabulous widgets. Your a genius and you make them so they all have color options. I love that!! Richard ~

Thank you Richard!

What can I say? I made this theme for XP. And I have not plans to remake it for Vista because the position of widgets on the left/right side of the screen (ie on the sidebar) is more useful. So I work on my own version of sidebar for Vista right now.

The code of SD Desktop is very large and complex. I even can't remember how much thousands of lines it contains... More than! Seems I need a few days for me to understand again how some parts of this code works. So I'm not sure that you'll can do anything with it.

I'm really sorry. May be I can do something else for you?

This is because weather.com changed the link to recieve the weather data. So this function will not work in the gadget.

Sorry but I've stopped working on the gadget development. On this reason the problem will not fixed...

Hi Kelly,

I'm really sorry but this game is finished for me. You will not see any new gadgets or widgets from me here. As well as I will not work on any updates for old projects. I even has no DesktopX installed on my main PC...

More than half year ago I've left this place because of a few serious reasons which showed me the absolute futility of my hard work. So excuse me please, but all of my creations will be in the same kind you can see now. I will not do nothing for WC. Nevermore!

That's all I have to say you at this moment.

P.S. The other weather programs was updated. You may downlowd and use any of them.

Hi Kelly, It seems I've stopped completely...

Each work must be motivated and bring the tangible benefits (like money for example). You will never work on sone things if If your labor is deprived of these both incentives.

I've totally lost any motivation to continue. DesktopX (as a software for development) was killed directly by Stardock. The selling of Master Gadgets can bring to its author about $100 per year for each gadget, i. e. about $8.33 per month. What is it? A bad joke?

I'm not ready to work for $8 per month... My new business brings me enough money every month without any gadgets and cheap/shameful intrigues on Wincustomize. Besides it stopped the destruction of my eyes near computer.

So I'm rich, happy and independent once again like a few years ago when I visited this place at the first time. Are you see at least one reason for me to continue this stupid game?   

Best Regards.
