Is there a place to put gadget files which are run from desktop, into a new Winreducer7 ISO?
(not recommended to use this outdated tool)
*Delete default Sidebar gadgets:This is not the same as option in vLite!.Vlite unfortunately allows only the removing of both Sidebar and its gadgets but not a specific gadget separately.This is your job to remove manually(unfortunately).Go to:
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets and start deleting the contents of the folders manually(takes very much time because only files can be deleted not folders).
*Pre-Adding custom gadgets to sidebar:In your current install go to:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets and copy them to:
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets in the mounted .wim. and optionally to:
C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets .Now after install when your sidebar doesent atomatically start(hasnt been added to global startup or all default gadgets have been removed) then clicking Windows Sidebar in Start Menu and in loaded sidebar clicking the + sign on top
...where your custom gadgets are already loaded and ready to be added to sidebar.If you add the contents of the ..\Gadgets folder to:
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets in .wim then they should be loaded automatically with sidebar after install.No installation or big configuring needed.
