drag it onto your desktop from the widgets bar - then it will work.

Hmmm, I tried on both my powerbook and power mac, and while it does unzip, double clicking the widget doesn't seem to load it... The only thing I can think of, is that I'm running HFS+ Case Sensitive...

Any ideas?

Timothy,
Try relocating the .widget file to ~/library/widgets I've had this problem in the past, too and that has always seemed to solve it.

I've received this report from a few others as well. The file system is the culprit. I'm not sure what issue causes it not to run, but from what others have told me, the glitch isn't isolated to my widget in particular.

In the future perhaps I'll have time to look into it, but for now case sensetive systems aren't supported. Sorry!
