Installation

Post  donnyj53 on Sat Feb 20, 2010 4:36 pm

OK, I'm not a newby but how do you install this app? All I see in the zip is a lot of js file's, som htm's but no exe's. There is no documentation on this too.
It's quite hard to evaluate a program if you can't intall it.

thanks

When you double-click on the .gadget, you OS should ask whether you want to install it.
What happens in your case?

There is no .gadget file to click on. If there was I wouldn't have a problem. As I mentioned , there is no .gadget file, no exe's, just .js, .html, .cs, .css, and .xml files. So again how go I install this.
Thanks.

Well, you have downloaded an archive file with name GoogleCalendar.gadget or Googler.gadget (I don't know which you are trying to install). You are right, it is technically a .zip archive file with .gadget extension, however, you mustn't unpack it. Simply double click the downloaded archive file, then your OS will ask whether you want to install it.

If you still do not manage to install the gadget, please describe step-by-step what you are doing and what happens, starting with the download of the gadget. Then I will able to help, I hope.

OK, what I downloaded was a zip file and I'm not sure why it didn't have the .gadget extention on it when I downloaded it but changing the file extention to gadget made it usable. Thank you much for the assist.

Still confused

I am in the same boat, however, I do not know how to change the file extension. I clicked download on the site and it puts a googler folder (zip) on my desktop when I double click the folder it opens it and shows me the contents. How do I install it?\

thanks

Oooh, I suppose you use Internet Explorer, and it seems not "playing nice".

Anyway, I have configured the webserver so that IE also recognizes the file type, however, you will need to clear IE's cache before downloading again if you have already tried and IE downloaded it as .zip

If you don't want to clear IE cache, or you don't know how to do it, you can use any other browsers for downloading, or just rename the downloaded .zip to .gadget.

If you use windows explorer as file manager, you can change the file extension from .zip to .gadget by right click/rename. If you don't see the extension at all, you need to tell windows explorer to show it affraid as press Alt button, then click Tools menu / Folder options, then click View, then uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types" in Advanced settings.
