in Windows 7 i don't think this is possible due to changes made with the desktop customisation settings, active desktop and sidebar/gadgets.  The only alternative i can suggest is the GCAL gadget which can be stuck to the sidebar.

there are a few apps such as Active Desktop Calendar available, but they are not free ($30) - http://www.xemico.com/
