All in one sidebar gadget...???

2008-11-06, 13:19 PM

Where can I download the "all-in-one" vista sidebar gadget that came on my new W700?  Just for clarity, i'm not talking about the single power manager or access connection gadgets.  The one i'm referring to has them all built into a single gadget.  See picture link here...

I did a clean install... I have all the drivers and apps from the download site, but I cannot find that gadget anywhere.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Its called the ThinkVantge Status Gadget and as far as I'm aware is only available on Lenovo factory OS distributions.

 

Its in one of the distributed software image directories on the factory build, so if you still have an accessible copy of the your original factor image installed on a disk, you can just copy it out of the approrpiate sub-directory.

The gadget can be found in the DRIVERS folder on the Lenovo installed factory Vista OS image, and is in a sub-folder titled TVTGADGET

For people who got a Thinkpad without factory installed OS (such as the student offers available here) is there still a way to get this gadget?

Would it be legal for someone to extract the file and publish it for us?

I am also looking for this gadget again. I installed a clean version of Vista 64-bit and have reinstalled most of the ThinkVantage software through the updater, but this sidebar is still missing. I still have the service partition and also the recovery discs. Is there any way to find it in either of those? Or is there a download of it somewhere?

I've uploaded it here for You.

 

there is no Instalation file but it is simple as that:

 

Copy all three folders into C:\Users\Your name\AppData\LOcal\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\

 

and that is it.

 

 

hope this helps

not really.

Sidebar gadgets are not downloadable, they are located on R&R only.
