Sun Clock by Nelson Botsford. [Dec. 31st, 2009|01:47 pm]
Sarah
I've updated Nelson's spiffing Yahoo!-Konfabulator Sun Clock to work as a Gadget in Windows 7.

Please comment if you download it, I'd like to know if it's been useful, and you don't have to register or anything to leave comments!

Windows 7 - Sun Clock Gadget.


Changes:
1: The Sun-Clock now works offline!* You no longer need to be connected to Time.gov any more.

2: It's now a Windows 7 gadget! It's fully integrated into Windows 7.

3: Accurate updates happen every minute.

Click the image to download the gadget (80 MB's):

(*Once the file's downloaded the installer will take about 4 minutes when you click "Install", because it's a little large for a gadget.)



Still to do:

1: Make the image resizeable.
2: Optional removing border.
3: Time and date superimposed on it.
4: Whatever everyone wants.

Re: sun clock

Hiyah!

Have you got an Email address so I can help you work it out?

I wonder what the error message is you get?

Re: Does not install.

Damn!

Do you have any error message appear?
I've re-installed it a couple of times on my Win 7 machine, and it installs every time so I don't even have my own error messages to go off...

Re: Does not install.

No error messages. For some minutes nothing happens, the "install" windows just freezes... and then, when the windows goes away, the gadget is not installed.
I wonder if there are some dependencies to be installed first...

Re: Does not install.

Obviously, I was referring to the install windows, not the install windowS :)

Just for the record, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, but I have another pc with 7 Home Premium and I will test the install procedure on that pc, too.

Hi Sarah, any news? It seems like you're to only one to be able to install the gadget :) Is there any program we have to install before installing the gadget?

Possibly a problem of 64bit? I have Windows 7 64 bit...

I'll know - I check back here regularly! See, I even checked back today to see if I could download it yet! Great work, by the way, looking forward to having this again on my system ;-)

Re: Still no go

I take it that it just tries to run, and nothing happens?

Re: Still no go

Yes, nothing happens... for a few seconds the window freezes and then the widget is not installed.
Is it something language-related? My copy of Windows 7 is Italian...
