I've had this widget and enjoyed it for a couple years but this year, I found that the lights no longer display. The little tag for changing my lightsets appears but there are no lights. I've tried reinstalling many different times, but nothing appears to change (I've tried downloading from here and from the original website).

I would like to email the maker of the widget, but I can't seem to find contact info. Any help with that or making my lights work again would be very appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Pretty sure this widget had been abandoned, but the developer has released an updated widget called Festive Lights:

I installed "Lights" after Xmas 07, and are they cool! Being a fan of Halloween as well, might the developer make a version with purple, green and orange lights-- for the Jack-O-Lantern set?
