Windows 7 sidebar gadget in Windows 10

Postby Traction Tim » Sat Dec 31, 2016 4:28 pm

I have just updated one of my Win7 client pc's to Win 10 only to find that sidebar gadgets are no longer included, so I couldn't install the Win7 iSpy sidebar gadget :cry:

I don't know if it is common knowledge, but have a look here: http://win7gadgets.com/blog/how-install-desktop-gadgets-windows-10/

I have been able to re-install the iSpy sidebar gadget in Win10 :D

Happy New year to you all 8-)

If anybody in the UK is using iSpy with Win10 and the Win7 gadgets on locally networked pc's and SKY broadband, I have just had a new problem. All of the Win10 pc's with Win7 gadgets started showing an error message that only subscribers can view remote iSpy systems. Odd I thought, as it is all on the same local home network. After multiple tests, I found that I had to turn OFF ipv6 on my internal LAN. Looks like Sky have enabled ipv6 on your local network as well as on the internet. After doing that, I could view my ispy system online, and my gadgets were restored. What a palaver :lol:
