Good question, wonder if they have issues with DLL's too. In fact, perhaps someone from MS could explain what the approval process actually is - does someone just virus check the Gadget and confirm it does what it says, or is there more to it

You can always upload it to AeroXperience

Hi Thomas.

We will allow gadgets on the site that have EXE or DLLs, but we (or the end user) may not always have access to the additional programs or DLLs that are used or needed if distributed seperately.

Ideally, if something is not available to the gadget it should fail gracefully.

Thanks.
