So far, almost all software I’ve tried to run under Windows 7 has worked without any problems. Today I installed Google Desktop, and everything was working fine until I added the Gmail gadget. As soon as I clicked the sign in button, Google Desktop became unresponsive and eventually came crashing down.
All other gadgets I’ve tried, including the new Google Calender gadget, work fine.
There’s a thread about this in the Google Desktop Help group. I guess we’ll just have to wait until Google fixes this, unfortunately.
