      No problem. That version definitely works with 8.1 and 10.

      I know, I installed it before going 'Yay!!'

      Got my clock back, got my CPU and memory meter back.... I'm almost happy.

      Check some of the gadgets as they may try to update. Sadly the site that they use has long since stopped producing updates.

      Thankfully I developed a habit a long time back so I was able to keep many of the updates just in case.

      Whilst I don't have a Scottish or NI face clock, I do have clock with English & Welsh faces.

      Clocks with faces? Whatever floats your boat....

      I just use TWO gadgets, a clock, analogue of course as it's quicker to read, and the meters; when I'm actually doing some work I have a couple of VM's running so it's useful to see if I'm in danger of something nasty happening.
