  • Daemon Tools gadget and Windows 8.1. Please help!

    Hey guys! I need help. I recently upgraded to windows 8.1 pro from Windows 7 Home and I'm trying to re-install all my programs. One specific one is Daemon Tools. On Windows 7, when I installed it, I would mainly use the gadget which was really convenient for me (I used it on a daily basis). Well I'm trying to install Demon tools on Windows 8. I got everything to work except for the gadget. I tried everything, but it just won't work. I even tried to install 8GadgetPack (8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8 / 8.1), which is suppose to help me gain access to the gadgets (it emulates the sidebar of Vista and Windows 7) and still doesn't work. I attached a screenshot of what it looks like (image #1) when I try to launch the gadget and it comes up blank. I am successful in adding a virtual drive, but I get this (image #2). I just keeps loading. The virtual drive appears in "my computer", but can not get it load onto the desktop sidebar (which is important to me). Can somebody please hlep me? Is there a work around for this glitch?

    Also, a suggestion? Can you guys do something for Windows 10? I'm planning to upgrade and would love to have a "sidebar" like feature (quick access). I use it on a daily basis.

    Hi. I had same problem in Win 8.1. I too installed the gadget pack. I opened windows gadgets , right clicked on the Daemon Tools gadget and uninstalled it. Then I went to program folder of Daemon Tools Lite and selected DT Gadget. Clicked on install and the problem was fixed.
