Xwidget installation now works as of version 0.4.3 under virtualbox!
Xwidget now runs too...
The installer: http://xwidget.com/download3.php xwidget 1.932
The default widgets display on the desktop but there are some graphical problems. The default widgets partially display their background elements but any animated graphical items do not update dynamically.
An F5 refreshes certain widgets and they will update just not dynamically.
eg. This widget installs and runs, an F5 updates the hour/minute hands.
The main xwidget launcher in windows is an icon in the system tray. In ReactOS this icon is not generated. Instead the user has to navigate via the menu system, good news is that the menus seem to work.
The main issue with the widgets, apart from the lack of animation is the issue with transparency. The transparent section behind the widgets is all black.
However, to see a widget engine running at all is quite a respectable achievement! Well done for 0.4.3!
