Windows 8 Gadgets under Windows 8


New Member
I know windows 8 no longer supports gadgets. However, I like using them. They have an advantage of tiles, when it comes to weather, because you can place several on your desktop. So I installed 8gadgetpack on my laptop running Windows8Pro. It works beautifully and I have 4 weather gadgets on the screen. (I must say this Windows8Pro installation was a upgrade from Windows 7. Now when I do the same on a desktop running Windows8 Basic, two problems: 8gadgetpack only installs with 1 page of gadgets available instead of 3 and the weather gadgets do not update. This puzzles me. Why would there be such a difference? What I am looking for is a technical explanation; I do not care for alternatives. Thanks in advance.
