Next step: Installing widgets

Get error in xampp:
Current Directory: c:\xampp
Installer Directory: c:\xampp
ERROR: Status Check Failure (1990183559)
This program must be run from your XAMPP root directory


C: is the first primary partition. I don't see what I am doing wrong.
Trying to download the widget on TV gives error:
network or server interference occured


xampp is installed on C:\xampp

I don't get the widgets installed and I was also wondering where i should drop the zip file or the extracted folder over FTP.

update: I managed to install widgets, but I used Apache instead of xampp

I think you know what is this widget for. Just for copy samygo games to TV. As alternative for UN/PN/LN models to have telnet enabler or FFB installed.

I discovered it by googling,
Sorry, I failed to delete the issue here.

But I like to continue getting widgets to work, I am this far:

I changed the essential settings in the service menu like:
-Info link server type: developing
-Info link country: Netherlands
-Installed Youtube, Picasa, US-today, accu weather

I set up a server:
-Added or modified in config.xml:
<mgrver>1.067</mgrver>
<type>user</type>
<autoUpdate>n</autoUpdate>
- Now I am able to install widgets.

But the widgets don't run and close internet@tv.
Fortunately I am able to uninstall them, to get internet@TV to work again.

The widgets I want to install are Google Calendar and a very much wanted Dutch app "Uitzending gemist" to see Webcasts of TV-programs I missed.
Do you have some suggestions, juuso.

No option for Ireland, Russia, etc. in Plug&Play setting, nor in the Service Menu settings.

Any advice ?

I have a LN52B750, and facing a similar challenge as Icey, i.e. Ireland is not an option in the service menu (control->sub option->infolink country), and instead my choices are America, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Canada, Chile (non of these seem to work, btw). Also, plug&play is greyed out and thus unusable. I would really like to get the Widget hack running to downgrade my firmware, as that's my only option. Please let me know if there's a solution. Thanks!
I had "juuso" help me load up the widget hack described here: , Software, [App] Widget to hack B series TV.

After trial and error, we were able to get it working. Send him a PM, he's a very smart helpful guy.

I changed the essential settings in the service menu like:
-Info link server type: developing
-Info link country: Netherlands
-With develop login I managed to install widgets like Twitter

But after a week:
- The yahoo widgets are back and I cannot get rid of them
- I checked the service menu and everything was like it should be: developing and Netherlands
- changing Info link country to Ireland or Uk didn't help either!

Help me to get the (non yahoo)widgets back :!:

You have to change your country to Ireland from menu-plug&play and re-tune your TV. Just then you get your non yahoo widgets.

It works, but

All my HD-channels, which now are numerous since september, are all displayed at 576i
Changing back to Nethelands displayes them 1080i again

Is there a possibility to get the (non yahoo) widgets and HD-quality as well :?: :?:
