Hello, how can I update my gadgets to the latest version ?!
(I updated Rainmeter, as well as HWiNFO, but still use older versions of gadgets 5.x.x).
Will the connection settings with the hardware be lost in this case ?!
Hello! If you are running the latest Rainmeter and especially HWiNFO, you'll want to upgrade for sure, as the new Gadgets version works with the free HWiNFO. Unfortunately, this means you'll need to redo your HWiNFO sensor mapping, but the good news is that it is MUCH easier.
You can download the latest Gadgets by clicking the download link in the first post, or get it from here
. It will install over your existing Gadgets and preserve as many settings as it can. However, the CPU Meter and GPU Meter have been substantially changed due to the HWiNFO 7.x release and their change to a "freemium" model.
You'll want to follow the instructions on the wiki, below. It's a lot of steps, but they are all pretty simple and since you've been through it all before, it will be a lot simpler this time. Most of the configuration is now in HWiNFO, so no more messing about with cryptic hex numbers.

If you run into any difficulties, let me know!
