I have never programmed a gadget for Vista or Seven, but I would like to try to make one. But where do I start? I have tried to search around on google and msdn, but I haven't managed to find anything useful. Either very, very old stuff (Vista beta stuff), already made gadgets or differences between gadgets in Vista and Seven. But that doesn't help me, since I don't have a clue how to make a gadget in the first place… I haven't even managed to find out what they are written in…
So, could anyone help me out with a kick start?
- Where do I start?
- What do I need to know?
- What are they written in?
- How are they "packaged"?
In other words, how do I get from a clean install of Windows 7 with Visual Studio to a working Gadget that I can install and put on my Windows 7 desktop.
