I have never been able to print a calendar from MS Works ver.6. I get a window showing papers dropping into a yellow folder and a message "please wait while the calendar prepares to print". It never reaches the printer. I have reloaded the software more than once to no avail. Every other printing task works fine. It is just the calendar. I have to take a screen shot, resize it and print it. This takes too much time. Can you help?

I downloaded some Microsoft updates, rebooted, and now my Microsoft Works Calendar won't come up. I've been to MS website and tried their fix - it didn't work. Next option is to delete Works and reload. My question is - will this deletion get rid of all of my data files along with the program? Also, is Outlook Express part of Works? I've tried to find out, but can't. I'm really concerned about making a mess of things.

I have wkscal.exe to run a calendar. All functions
work except when I try to print it. It uses all the
memory, while showing it is preparing to print.
The microsoft wite showed I could fix it by
downloading wkpr60.exe. I did, I ran it, but it
did nothing. Still can only use a live calendar, but
no paper copy is possible.
What office/work/works software uses these .exe files?

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync 0.9.4.1 running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

I know I may be one of the few left on the planet who actually want a "hard copy" of a calendar, monthly view. I use Google Calendar. I know how to print it. It is pitiful. It leaves lots of space in each square and yet totally cuts off most of the wording of the event. I have tried an iPhone app called CalPrint. It integrates the google calendar but when printed, it takes up most of the box with the words "All Day." I have tried the Outlook method of synchronizing with google calendar, but it takes up most of the box putting in the ending time on every event, when I don't even want the ending time. Surely there is a program out there that uses the data from google calendar and allows me a reasonable print output? I would be happy with either a software application or an app for iPhone/iPad. Is there anything?

What is the difference between iCalendar (.ics) & vCalendar (.vcs)? Should I export the Works calendar to both?
 

A:MS Works Calendar

These links from Filext.com may help you understand the differences somewhat better:
Extension: ICS
Extension: VCS​To me, it looks as though the VCS extension is used more often, but if you will be interacting with programs such as ICal or Lotus Notes, then you may want to save in ICS form, too.
If you ever find yourself in a bind and need a different extension version that what you have, you might want to check out ABC Amber iCalendar Converter.

I am using Windows XP and Microsoft Works Suite 2003. I have been using the Microsoft Works Calendar for home use, printing the monthly calendar in landscape format on my Canon i960 printer. This produces a 9"-6" one-month calendar.

Recently, the calendar started printing out only 7"-4" in landscape format. I have tried everything to correct this and cannot. Any other printing in other programs is normal so I do not think it is a printer problem. However, I cannot find the controls in the Calendar to restore the 9"-6" size. Any suggestions?

I am running Works 8 in WinXP Home. Included in this program is Works Calendar which I have used extensively as a reminder for appointments on my desktop.

Recently, Works Calendar won't open in the Task Launcher; or, any other way. When I attempt to open I get a error message that reads;

"Works cannot access one or more files needed to run the
Calendar. The files may have been renamed, deleted or
moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then reinstalling the
program again."

I've tried reinstalling, following three different MS Knowledge Base Documents that describe how to overcome this problem, but none makes a difference.

I had a similiar problem in a earlier version of Works some years ago and finally found that I had to reinstall a file in Win98. Unfortunitly, I don't remember; or have, a copy of this file and am hopeful that someone else has encountered the same problem and knows the solution.

Hi Friends,
I'm using Windows XP Home sp3, fully updated, and Works 2002 version 6. (I know it's an old version, but it's all I've got for now.) The Works Calendar doesn't display holidays, none at all. I can't imagine why anything called a "calendar" would be made without holidays by default, but I'm guessing this allows holidays of different countries and cultures to be set up.

Anyway, I found in the Edit menu > Add Holidays. I choose the holidays I want displayed, and click OK. But none are displayed.

I found in the Windows Works Discussion Group a recent message about adding holidays, where it was suggested that an internet search for for iCal holidays would turn up a file that could be downloaded, and imported into the calendar, that would add the holidays. But after searching and trying to download, that file turns out to be an ICS filetype which is incompatible with Windows .

So I'm hoping someone here will be able to advise me about adding Holidays to the Works Calendar? However at this point, I would even appreciate knowing about any free calendar programs which don't rely on advertising in order to be offered for free. For example, I'm hoping there's an Open Source solution.

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it

Whenever I back up MS Works Calendar, it restores in triplicate when I restore the files. What gives here?

I'm glad I can save the information, but when I restore the data, I seem to be a very busy woman!!! Everything is repeated THREE TIMES!!!

I like this program, but it has several glitches and when I start having trouble with my computer, this MS Works Calendar is the first program to show up with corrupted files. Since my calendar data is some of the most critical information I have, I don't want to use an application that is not trustworthy.

Can anyone shed some light on why this program won't perform consistantly? I would like to use it if I can get a grip on controlling it's idiosyncrosies.

I am running Windows 98 with MS Works 2000 that came bundled on my computer. One of the components for Works 2000 is Works Calendar.

First of all, please let me say that I'm happy to have found this group, I have found what I have read very interesting.

Having said that...

I have Outlook 2000 on my Dell Dimension 8200 with Windows XP. I have always wanted my computer to boot with my calendar reminders for the day.

The thing is, (correct me if I'm wrong?) I have always believed that Outlook is resource intensive, so booting and keeping Outlook running would interfere with whatever I'm doing.

My Dell also came with Works 2002, and puts just a calendar reminder in the startup which would work for me, except that I've worked with Outlook first ( and didn't get my reminders till I opened it up )

What I was considering doing was somehow importing my Outlook Calendar to Works, let Works start up with the computer with my reminders... and then just continue to work with Works. ( I will also want to hotsync that with my HanSpring Visor for easy updates )

Would this be the best way to this? Is there an (inexpensive) easier way to do this?

Thank you in advance,

A:Microsoft Works Calendar Problem

Hello,
I am helping a friend migrate from Windows XP with old applications to a new computer Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. I am trying to make the transition simple for him, so transferring as much of the old applications as possible. The one that is kicking my behind right now is the Calendar in Microsoft Works v9. Installation of MS Works v9 on the new computer did not present any problems, so both computers have the same version.

What should have worked is to simply copy the mswkscal.wcd file from old computer to new computer. It partially worked, but not well enough to be useable. The old computer has calendar event items that go back to 2001, so there is a lot of sentimental and historical information to be preserved. There were 3 significant things that I observed.
1. The name on the calendar tab started out as "My Calendar" on both computers, but changing it did not solve any problems.
2. There are no events displayed in the calendar view screen, none at all. When I opened the "Reminders" view then there were several items listed for the current date, just like they should be shown. So the events are there somewhere, but cannot be seen. When I opened one of those items on the Reminder list, it did have the proper Recurrence information.
3. I tried an export on the old computer (both as .vcs and .ics) to import on the new computer and again ran into problems. The import on the new computer gave an error that the file was not formatted correctly (I late... Read more

A:Problem transferring MS Works Calendar

I do not know Ms Works too well but I believe it can export to an ICS file (*.ics). The Outlook.com calendar (former Windows Live Calendar) at https://calendar.live.com supports importing ICS files, so I would at least try that first and then see and decide if it would be the right time to let Works retire. To use Outlook.com calendar you need a Microsoft Account (Hotmail, Live, MSN or Outlook.com email).
Step 1: Export Works calendar as *.ics file
Step 2: Go to https://calendar.live.com, click Import:
Step 3: Select Import into a new calendar, browse to your *.ics file, click Import

While Works on the whole is fine I'm having problems with the he reminder function, even though the reminder exe is listed in the correct places it doesn't produce a pop up at the time of the reminder, I've set it to 15 mins & 30 mins before to test it & nothing.
Opening up works calendar doesn't pop up the reminder either but manually opening the reminder does work.
When I first install it works fine until I restart the laptop then it stops working.
Anything I can look for or do to fix this?

I have a computer that ran Windows Vista and the Motherboard has went out on it . I have the working Hard Drive removed and connected to my working PC . I am wanting to find the Microsoft Works Calendar file and export it to Google calendar . I have done some research online and found this file path to retrieve the file

Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Works Shared\Mswkscal.wcd

Unfortunately the file is not there. I have done a search of the Hard Drive and "Mswkscal.wcd" is nowhere to be found .

Is there any other place I should be looking ?

Should I be looking for a different file ?

I use Vista businees and have MS office 2007.

In outlook 2007, when I print my Calendar (montly view), the text is truncated, even if there only one activity for a particular day.

Is there a way to print the text on more than one line (wrap around), assuming there is space?

I have seen other Calendar application doing this.

I have a user who is trying to print a meeting request from her calendar in Outlook 2007. When she opens the meeting and tries to print, she gets this error:

"There is a problem with the selected printer. You might need to reinstall the printer. Try again, or use a different printer."

This message comes up no matter which printer she chooses (local or network). Oddly enough, when she opens the item within the meeting request, she is able to print that. She is also able to print other items (emails, Word docs, etc.) to all printers with no problems.

Any ideas?? We are new to Office 2007 & this is the first time I've seen this. I was unable to duplicate the problem on my machine.

Thank you.

Just wanted to add: this just happened with a different user who was trying to print an email that contained an attached item. So it seems the commom denominator is the attached item within the email / appointment they are trying to print. Not sure why that is causing a problem, and why it's only happening with certain users. I still haven't been able to replicate the problem on my comuter.

I had to do a complete wipe and restore. I thought I was doing it right by having a solid backup (Norton Ghost). After completing the reinstallation of my software, I went to my backup to restore my calendar data from microsoft Works 7 which is very important to me. I cannot seem to find the data. Restoring Microsoft works 7 Doesn't populate the data that was in my calendar. I tried to restore selected items from C:/program files/common files, and the files from Microsoft shared with no luck. My computer prior to the restore was a real mess, so I do not want to restore a lot of corrupt files. Does anyone know where the data is stored?

From what I have read, mswkscal.wcd file is the calendar data file; I think it may be kept in a hidden folder, so be sure to do your search for it accordingly.

Hello,
I've searched these forums and found a partial clue to help me solve this problem, but need some additional info.

When I try to use the MS Works Calendar, I get the following error message:

"Works cannot access one or more files it need to run the Calendar. The files may have been renamed, deleted or moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then starting the program again."

I have reinstalled Works, but am still getting the same error message.

When I searched these forums, I was disappointed to find a few topics about the Works Calendar, which were closed because no one had ever replied. However, I did find this one which indicates that the problem can be solved by applying a fix from MS. But it doesn't say where to find the fix, or even name it. I have searched MS up and down, but can't seem to find whatever this member found.

So, does anyone know what fix they might have been referring to?

I'm using a rather old version -- Works Suite 2002, version 6 -- but when it works, is quite sufficient for my needs. This is on XP Home SP 3, fully updated.

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your help

Hi,

It has been decided that my computer is free from malware, so I've been referred to this forum.

I recently downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware program. The instructions were good and it worked fine. But, now I can't access my calendar for reminders. I get a generic error message saying "Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and must close."
It does not say what problem.

I have a Works 8 installation disk, but I think if I just reinstall Works, I'll lose all the notes on my calendar.

The only other thing I use from Works is a simple database which is working fine. Only the calendar reminder feature won't run. If I reinstall Works I could lose all the info on my database and I don't feel like re-entering over 1000 files.

I have the database backed up and it looks like I 'should' be able to run the backup file if the original gets wiped.
However, although I have backed up all the files in Works calendar folder, I don't know which one(s) hold the reminder info. I've tried replacing existing files with the backups, but they don't run so it looks like the problem is not with the calendar data files themselves, but something more basic to Works 8.

I recently found that if I right click on WksCal.exe and choose "Run as..." and use "administrator ", I get a different error message. This one simply says that Works could not find some needed files and suggests that they may have been moved or eras... Read more

My son says you are the best for troubleshooting, so here goes. I have a Toshiba laptop wireless and all the programs came pre-installed with a Recovery disk ONLY included. I have Windows XP Home Edition. My problem is with the Microsoft Works 8.0 Calendar, which was pre-installed along with Microsoft Office S&T Edition, which I do not use. The Calendar was working fine until yesterday and now I get an error message that just says "Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to close." Then I can choose whether or not to send an error report, which I have....several times. I've read the "official" Microsoft version of the fix, but it is telling me that I possibly have a corrupted file and to reinstall it from the Works CD, which I do not have. When I run the recovery CD, there is no Microsoft Works listed in programs to recover. I'm really at a loss! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!! MomM

Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to print a weekly view of a calendar in Outlook 2003 showing free/busy details but without displaying the appointment details? I know it's possible to hide private appointments, but this does not meet our needs.

To put this into context:

We have three meeting rooms in our library, each with their own 'resource' calendar in our Outlook system which is used to manage the room bookings. We wish to print the bookings out on a weekly basis and display them on the meeting room doors so people can see if the room is free/booked. There is a data protection problem with us printing the room bookings with people's details in it owing to the public nature of our building. The calendars are shared amongst all the library employees and everyone needs to see who the bookings have been made for on the computer so making them all 'private' appointments is not practical.

Has anyone done anything similar? Anyone got a solution?
Thanks in anticipation!
S.

I use Windows XP Home Edition.
I installed PalmOne Desktop software on my Dell computer to be able to type addresses, appointments, etc. on the computer and have it appear on my Palm Zire m150 and vice versa. Everything always worked fine.

Then I decided to synchronize data between the Works Calendar and the Address book of my device, so I set up synchronization by following the directions in Works Task Launcher.

Now the sychronization between my Palm program and my Palm hand-held no longer works. It freezes up in the HotSync process when it is trying to synchronize the date book. I suspect the problem is with the Works Calendar addition to the mix.

Works gives no instructions on how to disable what I enabled, i.e. the Works calendar-Palm pilot connection.
I don't need or want the Works calendar and would not mind getting rid of it and all the data on it altogether, however, I can't afford to lose the Palm data.

Can you help?

Thank you,

Not sure if this is the right forum, but it seems close enough...

I got VectorWorks recently to use for my scenic designs and Lighting
plots.

Previously, I was only doing student projects, so I could export my
designs as images, and then use Powerpoint and an LC projector to
present them.

I am now working on the design for a real show (one that we are
actually producing) and I have run into a dilemma: I have no idea
how to print it.

All I own is an 8 1/2" x 11" laser printer, and the document is
almost 6 feet long!

I went to Kinkos, but the guy said that they can only print Adobe
Files. I could export as an image, and past it in illustrator, but
then it becomes a photo, and is no longer to scale.

Another company, who supposedly specializes in blueprinting, will
only take computer files in .PDF (Acrobat) format. I don't have
Acrobat pro, and I think that that would alter the scale also,
wouldn't it?

It appears that VectorWorks expects me to be able to afford a $2,000+
printer.

Are there places that will print a VectorWorks file in it's native
format (.MCD)?

Thanks,

Nick

If I change my printer settings (such as color vs. B/W - Draft vs. Normal) when I go to print a spreadsheet using Works 6.0, it will still only print using the printer settings in place when the computer first booted up. When I look at print preview, it shows the changes, but will not print the way it shows. No other program does that.
I keep the printer defaults on Draft & B/W. When I want to print anything in color or higher resolution, I select Properties when the print window comes up and make the changes. The print copy always comes out with the changes - except with Works. When I want to change the print settings in Works, I have to go into my printer set up, change the default settings and reboot. Then and only then can I print with the new settings.
Can anyone tell me what's going on?

I have an address book in the MS Works database which I use for mailing Christmas cards. Using the "older" versions of Works, it was very easy to set up the printing of envelopes in a batch process, then just stuff in the Christmas cards & lick the stamps. I don't remember what the older version number was that enabled envelope printing as I have since sold my older computer.

Now that I have upgraded to a newer version of MS Works (Ver 6,) I find that I cannot figure out how to print envelopes from the same database which I have imported to this PC. Not only that but there is no option in all the tabs for "envelopes" as there is in the earlier versions of Works.

My question is is there some work around or secret that I am missing here or has MS screwed up again and left that option out in the newer versions?

BTW, my wife's laptop has version 8 of MS Works and there is no envelope printing in that one either. ? ?

I recently purchased a used C2525E Kyocera color MFP to use as my sole printer for a home business network. I am having printer issues. We have a dell laptop and desktop PC running Windows Vista and they print just fine to the new Printer/Copier. The issue is that my Toshiba laptop -64 bit (running Windows 7) thinks the printer is offline (on the network). When running diagnostics, it says the printer is turned off. Now when I hook up a USB cable to it, the printing works as it should.

Unfortunately, this is not the solution to my problem. I need to be able to "Scan to PC" images from the scanner. I don't think I can do this through a USB connection.
