Default Accuweather Gadget That Shipped w/ XPS 8300

I love the clean look of this weather widget that shipped with my XPS 8300.
Would like to use it on my Inspiron i5 5010 but I can't find it on line (and
no, it's not on Accuweather.com or Dell.com)
Does anyone know how I can get it on the laptop?

Do a ctrl/alt/del and see what is running. Should be able to narrow it
down by looking up the processes that are shown.

Or you could look in the start-up files and see what it is.

Steve, I know what program it is. It's an Accuweather gadget. And I know
where it is. I just don't know how (or even if I can) install it on the
laptop.

I seriously think this came from Accuweather because it is similar to
the 2nd choice on the link below....
http://www.accuweather.com/downloads.asp

It is not identical and I think the reason is because they customized
a special one for Dell which is probably not downloadable to the
public. Just my hunch.

the dell installed accuweather windows 7 gadget is part of something
dell calls 'dell stage'.
install dell stage and then go to start-allprograms-dellstage-weather to
activate the accuweather gadget.

Default Accuweather Gadget That Shipped w/ XPS 8300

Yay! I figured it out I'd already tried just copying the exe from the
desktop to the laptop thinking it might be a (self contained?) little gadget
but that didn't work.
So I navigated to it's folder and zipped up all the files in that folder.
Shared it with the laptop, unzipped, double clicked on the exe and PRESTO!
Then copied it to the c directory and
dropped the exe in the startup folder I like it because it's clear (no
background), clean and AN uncluttered look.
Hummm, a slight setback. When I restarted the computer to see if it would
startup automatically, I got an error message that "the program can't start
because libumajin.dll is missing
from our computer. Try reinstalling the program" It's not missing, it's
just not where the computer expects to find it. On the desktop computer a
copy of it is
in a couple folders in the Dell Stage...laptop doesn't have Dell Stage, it
has Dell Dock (I don't use either). I'll have to take it out of startup
and place a shortcut on the Taskbar, unless someone
has a better idea

FWIW, the one I got from accuweather is transparent too. I didn't
know it existed till you asked about it and I like it because it's
small and transparent. I'll keep it but normally I go to a site for
my weather.

dell stage is completely different than dell dock. dell stage primarily
synchronizes devices, dell dock mimics the apple osx application launch
bar menu. and, your welcome.

Thanks Christopher but I didn't install or even see how to install Dell
Stage onto my laptop. I wouldn't want to if I could. Not sure the laptop
could handle it.
I've got the exe on the taskbar. Just takes one click to open it
