Has anything changed in regards to gadget installation? I can't even get a hello world gadget (as per the MSDN example) to install. I've created a .gadget folder with a gadget.xml and .html file inside, zipped it (removing .zip extension) and double clicking on the icon. Nothing's happening.

The only development stuff I can find is for Vista's sidebar gadgets which indicate no change in the W7 development process. I did find a site suggesting setting the charset will break the gadget (so I removed it from the example code) and that still doesn't make it work.

I looked in the installed gadgets folder and found that there are language folders, so I made that change too and still not working.

I downloaded a gadget from the Windows 7 experience site which came packaged as an MSI. Is this how gadgets are installed now? The last time I made one, it was a case of zipping the folder and double clicking it.

I want to make my own jump list for "Internet." I'd like to have an icon in my task bar that when I right click it, it gives me the option to open Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera or IE. Is this as simple as making a folder, droping shortcuts to those programs in it and pinning it to the taskbar or is there a "better" way to do this?
