Googgle is a good start even though its stock dropped more than 1% today:
I gooogggled WcWidgetCreation at the Amber web site and then broadened
the search to the WWW to find as the first hit:

It seems like we should improve the error message to specify the
location of the Widget Creation Library resource file
instead of the outdated $XENVIRONMENT/XaLeap

Good luck,
