I have DesktopX 3.10.042 installed, all of the OMNI widgets are not working

To NutShell and others who have problems:

I hate to say, but Stardocks programs are buggy
Logon XP never works for me

I am using the GT3 theme and widgets.
The GT3 Calender didn't work for me. I used the Desktop X builder to check and found that my locale setting, which is Japanese, was to blame.
The VB script took notice of my system locale and returned a Chinese character as the month name, and therefore messin' up the calender script.
I then added a line of code : SetLocale("en-us") as first line of code to be executed, it solved the problem

The GT3 Media didn't work until I reinstalled Windows and Windows media player

If your locale is not set to English, try my method

If that isn't the problem, use Desktop X builder to import the widget and check for script errors.
The error will tell you clues why the widget went wrong in your system

Have the latest version of DX

The worst case is to reinstall windows. But this does not necessarily helps the problem

I have the exact same problem as maddox4u: The location points don't show and the lines are not drawn on the map. Any information on what's causing this?

beautifully done

Great work, but what's the use for that "minimize" button, right next to the "close" button? Everytime I click on it, the widget vanishes and does not come back until I restart the computer. What can I do?

I love this! One small question; The options panel is visable even when I set to full opacity?
thanks for your work...

Keeps on saying this doesn't appear to be a valid zipcode try again ? Have entered Perth.. Perth Au, Perth 6000, 6000, Perth Western Australia... What the ? Explanation ...?

Older DX weather widgets if not updated will not work as is the case with this one. The script needs to be changed. I have done it before but I just look for the new widgets because they work. It's a shame this has not been updated because it looks nice.

this really sucks......i can not enter a valid zip code or location......and every time i try it fail.....and tells me to try again....WTF....

The reason the widget won't accept zipcodes or locations is not the fault of the widget per se.  It's because the weather site that all the old widgets used stopped allowing access without signing up (all the old widgets used the same script to access this site).  Redneck Dude has updated a lot of these but he can't seem to reach Tiggz to get his permission.  I sent Tiggz a PM to ask for him to update or give RD permission.  It really is a great weather widget and it would be a welcome addition to the updated ones.  Maybe if enough people PM him with the same request, he will allow RD to update it.  It's worth a try.
