I accidentally uninstalled a third party gadget from the gadgets folder on my windows 7 machine. When I tried to replace the same folder in the path C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets, the gadget does not appear in the gadget gallery.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Did you keep a copy of the gadget after you uninstalled it? – wizlog Dec 8 '11 at 18:00

If you can find the *.gadget file, it should be "executable" try double clicking on it.. If not, find it on the web and reinstall it..

If you have the installation file, try doubble clicking to install.

You need to install the gadget for it to run on Windows. See this article for some additional help.
