The flyout shows the right info but the meter shows 100% usage...0 free.

Installs fine and looks good though.

These gadgets have run flawlessly for most, but thanks, boss0190, for reporting your experience. It sounds like you are still running with UAC enabled!

I think you will find that you want to disable this eventually. One way is to Right Click Desktop -> select Personalize. In the panel that opens up, type in the Search box "uac" and hit enter. A panel should come up where you can uncheck a box, then reboot.

If you do not wish to disable UAC entirely, you can also still get these meters working on your setup by running just Windows Sidebar as an Administrator. Exit your current instance of sidebar. Explore to Program Files/Windows Sidebar. Right Click on the executable and select Run As Administrator then answer a question on the next panel that pops up. If that seems like a pain in the neck, you'll get my drift about eventually disabling UAC!

It is also possible to create a shortcut to Sidebar, Right Click it, Select Properties->Advanced->Run As Administrator. Which will still pop up one panel if UAC is enabled.

Okay, this one puts my attempts of a skinnable sysmeter to a shame. Great work from what I see (can't use it right now, as I don't have Vista yet).

I don't know about that, Carl! Your Skinnable SysInfo DesktopX Gadget is pretty slick!

This is really good. Is there any way to show the sum of both Virtual and Physical RAM?
