    When you say it does not work, what specifically happens?

    Sometimes you have to give the Weather/Clock widget a little time to load. I got the battery widget installed and I get my weather just fine, be it from the weather widget or the Clock widget.

    i'm wondering if this is what i did wrong...

    I installed it but did NOT try to run or load app by "adding a HTC widget" from desktop. i tried to click run on program on the "install complete" screen.

    Forsure... Widgets cannot load as an app. You have to add them like you noted.

    When I first loaded it up it "didn't work" so I uninstalled and had what I can only call a "soft reset". The HTC logo came up and the phone was back working in about 30 seconds. It did not go through the 2 minute boot up.
    Oh, and it was a "DOH!" moment with the battery widget ... I realized you had to place the widget for it to work. Hitting "Open" after it installed only got you the error message.

    The HTC widgets don't run like normal apps.
    1. install
    2. exit android market
    3. go to homepage screen
    4. long click or press the (+) symbol
    5. select HTC widget
    6. add battery or whichever app you have installed. They are available only from this menu from what I've seen.
    7. Enjoy your battery app. It bubbles when you charge the phone. Very cool.
