Ok, I'm in the correct forum now.

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 am not using Microsoft Works 8, nor have I downloaded or installed it, ever.
I'm using Microsoft Works 2003 which came pre-installed on my computer when I bought it.
I never upgraded.
None of the items in the list of malware found said anything about microsoft calendar.
I've tried rolling back to a date before I used the anti-malware program but it had no effect.
My calendar data seems to be there, and it was backed up, the program just won't run.
The only other thing I use from M. works is a spreadsheet which still opens fine.

I can't find any way to make the calendar run.
I hope someone has some ideas.
Thanks.

I've got a client who is using microsoft works 8.0 calendar and recently had to replace his hard drive and reinstall his operating system. The problem we're having is that all of his calendar data is stored as a .wcd file and the calendar will only import icalendar files and vcalendar files .ics and .vcs. Is there anyway to convert the data file from .wcd to .ics or is there a way to get the calendar to read a .wcd file? He is using Windows XP, service pack 2. All of my searching on Google lead me nowhere. Microsoft's website was no help either. If a .wcd file is from an older version of Works calendar, where can you get that version of works? Any help on the matter will be greatly appreciated.

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

We have a new laptop Dell - running Windows XP Home. On our old computer - Windows 98, when we put something in the Microsoft calendar you could just type in on the particular day your appointment. Now on XP - when you type in an appointment - it puts in a "time" like 7:00. We don't want that so I went into "Options" and tried to find someway to fix that so it won't list a time period. Can anyone help me? I certainly would appreciate it.

Boy it would be nice to use the calendar app with with my google calendar or even be able to tie it to my exchange calender here at work.

Just some random thoughts. Sorry if the subject has been touched on before.

A:Microsoft needs to open up the calendar app

Same with the people app (though /some/ of that is promised).

Unfortunately, companies being companies, they only cooperate sparingly and over all, complete interaction between all major internet "cloud" service providers it not something that's going to happen in any large way.

But your right, My cloud storage app, email app, people app, calendar app etc should all be cross platform and cross service. Picking the best one in each location but access to the sum total of all my data no matter where it's stored.

Usually you need to look at third party developers for that (i.e. trillian etc) but even then service and features are always spotty/incomplete , largely due to the service providers needing you to be using /thier/ clients which support /their/ ads.

A:Microsoft Calendar Won't Print

Hi,

Although I don't use this software, that does seem a bit strange. You don't even see anything going to the print que? How is your printer setup? Does it send data straight to the que? You should be able to find out if you go to your printer, right click and go to Properties.

I would also double check all your drivers, and possibly reinstall them. (Is this by any chance an HP?)

Cannot obtain correct printing from Microsoft Works Calendar.

The Microsoft site says this is common with Internet Exp.5.5-

I am using 6.0 and still have the same problem.

The calendar pages come out printed on 2 pages rather than

one page. The columns are elongated causing this to happen.

Have checked the printer with other programs and the printing

is correct.

This should do it.
Open the calender, from the file menu select "export > HTML". Remember where you saved it to. Close the calender and go to the file you exported and double click it. It should open in Internet Explorer. Now select print from the file menu.

Last year I puchased a new computer with Windows XP. Most of the files were retrieved from the old C drive and installed on my new computer. I have been using Microsoft Works Calendar for many years, and rely on it for reminders to pop up. I recently had the business where I purchased the computer look at it because of a start up problem. Since then, it seems the reminders do not pop up for the specified time I want them to any longer, i.e., a meeting 3 days from now and a reminder would be put into the window and then click on OK. In the past, I've never had a problem with getting the reminders until recently. Do you have any suggestions? Barbara

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 realize this isn't a crucial question ... but I have Windows 98SE and after the end of 2004 the holidays and other notations ... like "Daylight Savings Time Begins", "Father's Day", etc. ... ceased to appear on the calendar.

Am I "on my own" at this point? Any way to have these dates appear other than manually inputing the dates and events? There are increasingly fewer and fewer businesses that distribute calendars to customers these days.

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.

Hello,

We are running all our computers here on Win2k with all the latest updates. We run Office 2000. After upgrading a few systems to Visio 2003, we noticed that the calendar wizard (and other wizards) stopped functioning. If I try to create a document from a wizard or open the visual basic editor, I get two errors.

VB6EXT.OLB Could not be Loaded.

followed by

Unexpected error 50001
I searched for this error and found that it is just a general VB error.

It seems to work fine however if we give the user administrative rights on their local machine, but of course this is not a long term solution as we do not want everyone to have admin on their machine.

I searched around on google and haven't found anything that would help. I think the issue lies in upgrading the systems to visio 2003, but I have a couple machines that upgraded no problem and it works fine.

I tried doing a detect and repair and a reinstall of both office 2000 and visio on the affected machines and they have yielded no results.
Any help at this point would be greatly appricated.

I recently created a Microsoft account on my Windows 8.1-running Dell XPS 12 laptop. After I realized that logging in through my new Microsoft account got rid of my calendar, I tried to revert to a local account. I believe I may have accidentally created a new local account with the same name and password as the original account by accident.

Is there anywhere where the calendar information from the original local account would have been saved? It seems to me that since I was not prompted in the process of making a Microsoft account to warn me of losing data from the local account, it should be backed up somewhere. Where could I find it?

I suspect that I am not able to do what I would like to but will ask the questions just in case...
I use the Ms calendar on my Lumia 920 which in turn updates the online version at the Ms Live website as well as the Windows Live calendar accessed via my email client.
All good so far.
Problems started when I gave the wife access to my calendar but she keeps forgetting to check it before making appointments for us (which conflict with important things like my golf).
I thought there was a way of having the calendar create an automatic email whenever I added a new event and have that email sent to the wife to alert her to my latest meeting/tee time.
Checked all places where I would have expected to find an option to make the wife a recipient of alert emails but have failed. Seems I can send an update/new event alert to myself but to nobody else.
Can somebody confirm that to be the case. (If I have selected the wrong category for this posting then apologies.)
Thanks in advance.

What if you add your wife in the entry you make in your agenda ("add someone" required or better optional) in that case she will get an e-mail (to except) and this entry will also be in your wives calendar.
Not sure if this is the right category but I also do not know which category should fit better.:)

Does anyone know?

Do sound alerts exist at all in Windows calendars or just pop ups if any?

Thanks.

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using Outlook.com and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her Outlook.com account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her Outlook.com account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.

https://support.office.com/en-us/art...7-76d60b148b23
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

If I enter an appointment on the native calendar app it is not pushing these appointments to other devices or even the browser outlook.com calendar view. Should it be doing so? It works the other way around. So if I enter an appointment on my phone (iOS) using the outlook setup on the calendar it does push the appointment to the calendar app on Windows 10. Just not other way round!

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

Outlook 2007 running under Exchange server. We have a shared calendar used by all employees to show when they will be out of the office... vacations, part time, etc.

We also have Resource Mailboxes in Exchange so that when you click on the "Rooms" button when setting up an appointment, you can see the room schedule, then add your appointment to the room by inviting the room as an attendee.

The boss wants to do something similar with the shared calendar. When she puts an appointment on her private calendar that will take her out of the office, she wants to be able to press the equivalent of the "Rooms" button and have that appointment be automatically copied to the shared calendar so that everyone can see that she will be out of the office.

I've been trying to do a web search but unfortunately the search terms I have been using keeps telling me how to set up calendars, not how to pull off this trick.

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

Hi folks,

I'm using MS Project 2003, and I'm having a couple of difficulties with the relationship between the calendar view and the gantt chart:

The calendar is placing some tasks on non-working days;

MS Project 2003 seems to not have a facility for assigning recurring tasks to "business days only". This causes me to have to set a recurring task as close to the day in the month I think the task will fall each month and then go into each month and manually move the task to the 13th business day (or whatever is the actual requirement). It is so common for recurring deadlines to be on business days rather than calendar days, I am surprised that Project's "recurring tasks" dialogue box has only a "x day" of the month (rather than x business day of the month" option. Can one set recurring tasks in Project on the basis of business days?;

When I set up my project in MS Project, I specified working days to run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., however, when I view the project report it sees working days as running from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.. This suggests to me that, somehow, the gantt chart and task list are not wedded firmly to the calendar view. Can someone help?;

MS Project is displaying some distinct tasks as separate tasks along the same Gantt Chart bar. For example, tasks, x, y, and z occur on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday every month, and they are displayed in the Gantt Chart on the same line of the same month running in direct s... Read more

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
