Outlook calendar live tile & call divert problem

Q: Outlook calendar live tile & call divert problem

Hi, I have lumia 640, latest win 10, done few hard resets, after latest outlook calendar update few days ago I hoped this problem will be fixed, but it still persists, i.e., live tile does not update date. Any idea what to do? Can not understand this since MyCalendar works fine!
The other problem I have is, that the menu for setting a call devert (settings, extras, network, ...) opens and immediately (after 2, 3 sec) closes by itself, so you don't have time to set a divert. I think this was not an issue with a previous versions. Any tip would be welcome, since I'm slowly losing patience with being a devoted win phone fan. Thx, Mark

Ok, I have read all the post regarding this problem, but I do not get it and have to confess: love the Win10mobile, but with all the fuss around this platform I give up.
I have Lumia 930, latest .321 update, done hard resets, tried all the "tricks" and still nothing. Two days ago received the last update, hoped that this will finally fix live tile to update the date, but I lost all the hope now. Luckily there is MyCalendar which works perfectly! Do not get it how mighty MS can not fix this problem. For me WM is dead, unfortunately. I will have the Lumia till it's finished, but my next phone, though that's hard for me to accept, will be iphone. If anyone knows trick, besides WDRT, which than again is no 100% guarantee fix, let me know, pls. Sergej

Latest, updated Calendar app that has come by the system is still not updating the date. Phone Lumia 640 LTE, Win 10 mobile AU, 14393.189. The calendar is enabled in the background. Done few hard resets, tried resizing the tile, pining and unpinig of tile, entering dummy event in calendar, nothing helped. With the latest update of Mail & Calendar app (Sept. 22nd, 2016) I was hoping that this issue would be solved ... wrong. From "MS support tech" I got a cliche "nonanswer" as I wouldn't be able to count to ten. Any ideas or similar issues ... solutions? Thx, M

As with you,it is hard to understand why the bug is still affecting you as you have done multiple hard resets. i will get back to you once i have a solution to share.

Hi,

I can't get the popup reminders for the calendars to work. Neither in the Metro calendar nor in Outlook.

I also can't make them synchronize.

Does anyone know?

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

Thanks.

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my @live.com calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the @live.com calendar is checked).

A:Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

Hi there,

I use MS Office Live Small Business for my website and email. I use Outlook to manage my email on my computer, connecting to Office Live with Outlook Connector. Till now, I have not used the online Office Live calendar, I've simply used the default Outlook calendar on my computer. Today, though, I received a meeting request from a client. I "accepted" the meeting and checked in my calendar to make sure it had recorded it, but could not see it. I eventually found it in my online Office Live calendar.

So now I have two active calendars, which I don't want. Can I tell Office Live to record appointments to my Outlook default calendar? Or would I be better off switching to the online Office Live calendar? If I do the latter, is there a quick and easy (!) way to transfer all my appointments from my default Outlook calendar to the online version?

(One reason for wanting to use only one calendar is that my HTC smartphone will only sync to one calendar, so it doesn't pick up any appointments on any other calendar.)

Sorry about the long-winded question. Help and advice will be gratefully received.

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account (outlook.com) and use that to sync all the calendars

Outlook.com account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the outlook.com calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the outlook.com / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> oulook.com === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/outlook.com

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/outlook.com calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the outlook.com calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

so i changed the new account to a Exchange account setting , and also notice i need to enter the info incorrectly first to then get prompted to enter the m.hotmail.com information

set the account up for just calendar
Set the calendar as default

and al works

just means she will only have 1 calendar , if she wants to sync between all devices

Just wondering if anyone else has had the following experiences recently;

First, when I opened Windows Live Mail today, one fortnightly recurring event notification from my Live Calendar started sending reminders via Live Mail to me. About ten events were immediately loaded and showed as Emails in my In Box. I deleted [unopened] all the subject Emails, followed immediately by emptying of the contents of the Deleted Folder.

However, the Emails kept coming, and the only way to stop the problem was to open the Calendar, select the subject Event and delete all future recurring instances. By that time, Emails for notifications into the middle of 2011 had been received, and I treated those the same way as detailed above.

Second, for the first Email that I wished to send after this strange behaviour, this anti-spam security clearance panel appeared;

I needed to complete the clearance, before the Live Mail email was sent.

Now I'm left wondering what this was all about?

I have a user receiving the following message from a item that she deleted from her calendar month's ago:
This meeting is not in the calendar; it may have been moved or deleted.

I looked at the calendar and there are no meetings scheduled for that time. She deleted all reoccurring meetings but every week she receives an email stating that one of the participants has declined.

Has anyone ever seen this before? Thanks for the help.
 

A:Outlook calendar problem.

More than likely, even though she cancelled the meetings, someone or some people she sent them to did not, and the meeting is still in their calendar. They are getting popup notifications about the meeting, and sending a reply saying they won't attend, but when she receives it, it would return an error because it can't find the corresponding meeting in her Calendar.

make sense??

I am just guessing, but have her contact all the people she originally had included in that meeting, and ask them to delete the meeting from their calendars.

To avoid this error, set the appointment option to Gregorian instead of Lunar."

Problem is, that doesn't make a difference and the file still does not open.

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.

I work in a two person office and the calendar program that we use is Outlook. We have another office accross the country and they also use Outlook calendars. My problem is that in our building we had to set up pop and smtp servers for our mail (due to the way this building set up) which means that there is no way to share our calendars since you need to have microsoft exchange server. The other office is able to share since they use the MS exchange server.
Im just wondering if anyone knows of a way around this? I need to be able to share calendars with my boss and not just use his pc when he isnt using it. And it would be nice to share with our other office too. But since we are restricted by the way this building has stuff set up (??? dont ask) Im thinking that the only way around this is to start fresh and get another calendar program that will work for all of us.
Does anyone know of a good calendar program that has a share/delagate feature? It would be nice to find something that I could easily transfer everything that we have in outlook to the new calendar program. Theres about 3000 contacts that will need to be moved as well as emails etc.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again Microsoft - for another game of monopoly! We wont go there!!! Thanks!

One of my clients works in an Exchange environment. When she forwards a Calendar entry to another employee, the employee receives a vcalendar attachment that opens as a Calendar entry on their copy of Outlook.

When she sends the same email to me via POP3 email, the attachment is simply a forwarded email message, with the vcalendar text as the email body.

When I forward her a calendar entry, she receives it properly.

Is this an Outlook configuration issue, or an issue of Exchange vs POP3 message processing?

I would really appreciate some help with a problem that I have with Outlook 2002 that I did not have with Outlook 2000.

In the calendar, I click on a date to get the "event" box and type the item in the subject line and press "enter". The item in the calendar date box then shows up with "12:00" in front of it rather than with no time. If before pressing "enter", I open the "recurrence" box and close it, then there is no "12:00" but by default the item is repeated weekly with no end date. To get just one event listed on the correct day with no "12:00" I have to put a "1" in the "end after" "occurrence" box.

Can someone please tell me how to set up the calendar so that I don't need this elaborate work around? Many thanks!

When I make an all day entry, like a birthday for example, and I view the calendar folder for a month, the appointment spans two days - the day of the appointment itself and the day after it, and the box that contains the appointment is bookended by clock icons.

If I open the appointment, click on recurrence, click OK (did not change anything), click Save and Close, the display will appear "normal" -- meaning it spans the day of the event, without the clocks on the sides.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

I have "all day events" that are only scheduled for one day... Something missed all that up because now my my one day "all day" events have little clocks on the entry and is spred accross more days that are needed...

If I open up the 'all day event' series the date that I had prevous placed into the event is still the same; however, the event spreads to more days that are needed & that are imputed by me...

I just recently moved into a new time zone... this might be the problem...

does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this request, but I am not able to get the Twitter live tile running on my Mom's new laptop. The laptop came with Windows 10 already installed as the main operating system.

When the Twitter live tile would not work, I initially tried turning the live tile off and then back on. When that did not work, I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling Twitter. The live tile is still not working. I don't remember if upon reinstalling if I was asked if the app should be allowed to run in the background.

I found this sub-forum with guidance on how to allow apps to run in the background. On my Mom's computer, when I go to Setting/Privacy/Background Apps the list of Apps that I can turn on and off does not include Twitter. I also have Windows 10 on my computer and my Twitter live tile is working. Twitter is on my list of Background Apps that can be modified and it is turned on.

If anyone knows how to add Twitter to the list of Background Apps, so that I can turn it on or off on my Mom's computer, please let me know what I need to do.

Thank you in advance.

I've noticed that Skydrive live tile does not work after upgrading to 8.1. Anyone else notice this?

Prior to 8.1, Skydrive was live, that is it would display the contents of your folder, especially photos. Now, after 8.1, it doesn't work.

So is anyone else's skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Thanks

A:Skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Hello Drew,

In Windows 8.1, SkyDrive is fully integrated now.

You should have a separate SkyDrive app tile on your Start screen for the online SkyDrive, and a SkyDrive folder group in the navigation pane of File Explorer. This folder is located at: "C:\Users\(user-name)\SkyDrive".

Does anyone have issues with the live tile on the photos app? It works 90% of the time. But then I will open the start menu and the live tile will be occassionaly static on a single photo. No shuffling. It will work again if I either log out/ log in again or if I right click and turn live tile off and then back to on. But it's sporadic behaviour, is it by design/intention that after a while it stops shuffling?

Hi all. Just a small annoyance really. The Cortana live tile is not working all the time for me. When I open Cortana I can see my specified news cards etc however it won't live update new news etc on the live tile.

Sometimes I will see for instance "BBC -5 minutes ago" on the tile but it won't show the headline just the Cortana circle icon.

Every other live tile seems to work ok.

I can't seem to turn on live tile for my weather app. When I right click on it, there is no option at the bottom of the screen to turn it on.

Compared to the photos app, it is currently running live tile by default, and when I right click on it, I can toggle live tile on and off.

Is there something special I need to do with the weather app to activate live tile?

Hello Pauleduc,

Double check to make sure that the Windows Time service is enabled, and that your system time is set accurately and synced.

You could also do this by opening an elevated command prompt, then typing the commands below and press Enter after each one.
net start w32time

w32tm /resync

Afterwards, see if you have the "Turn live tile on/off" option.

I like the live tile on the native photo app despite not being able to control what pics show and it only scrolling through 5 at any given time. However do people find the live tile buggy? It will be happily working away but then I will notice the tile gets stuck on a single pic no longer scrolling. Switching live tile off and back on generally kicks it back into life again. It's the only live tile that seems prone to this behaviour as all others behave themselves. I've noticed this has happened through all builds of Windows 10 and numerous photo app updates. It's very random as to when it occurs too

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...

I am really enjoying Windows 8 so far. It took some getting used to, and I still believe it is more ideally suited for touch-interface, but I still enjoy using it and updating my computer usage habits because of it.

That being said, I don't seem to understand the Mail app that comes on the start page. I have added my accounts, and can check them accordingly, and I really enjoy it. But when I get new mail, I get a popup in the upper-right hand corner of the screen about the new mail. My question is this:

Can I make the Mail Icon show my new mail, (in a live-tile fashion) much like when I get new messages the friends live-tile shows those messages. Is that possible? Even if it is just the title/subject, or author that would be a nice customization and benefit to me.

Thanks for reading, and sorry if this belongs in the customize section and not here.

I'm personally going to try to make this simple, and yet cover all of my problems in a small thread.

I updated windows 8.1 pro with wmc from store.

I had NO problems, received no error messages, had no dc's, the power didn't shut off, the download didn't stop .. literally nothing went wrong. After update everything worked fine. All the apps are downloaded and were working fine.

But,

After 2/3 months since updated, I suddenly noticed that every live tile / folder / app / game / setting etc. which were working fine, now not working.
When I clicked on any tile, nothing happened. It just went to a blank green screen because my background color is green. It appears on the left upper corner as opened but doesn't run. When I click, I am send back to Start Screen or Desktop. Even Store and Windows Setting stopped working. So, naturally i started checking the web for answers, but couldn't find a solution to the exact problem i was having. I saw countless posts of people saying "Just uninstall / re-install the apps" but at first, I couldn't get my App store app to run. Again, it was just blank after several minutes of waiting. I was able to download it after using the search bar menu on the right side of my computer, and was able to start installing some apps.
NEXT PROBLEM:
So i thought that everything was going to be ok, but then I ran into another problem where some of the apps wouldn't install, and I received an error message with the code/number of 0x80070002... Read more

Only a few days ago I realised that both my computers (windows 8.1) had live tiles enabled in the metro interface, and that they had been downloading things for them (various new pictures to be displayed on the tiles, and alos adverts for apps available in windows' store. I disabled the live tiles (there was only one, the windows store) on both machines as soon as I realised this. So they won't be wasting any more of my bandwidth downloading png pictures of apps I don't care about.
This however got me thinking: If the windows store shows adverts, and these adverts are shown (atleast in some sense) through the live tiles, then could these tiles end up distributing viruses? As far as I could tell the only things be downloaded (and wasting a small amount of my bandwidth) were png images, but part of me wonders if flash animations (with hidden exploits) or exe files could be downloaded and run like this? Has this ever happened yet? I have no particular cause to think it has happened to me but the fact that these tiles exist like this and do what they do makes me think it could happen some day? If it could then that would be a huge problem waiting to happen, viruses delivered through a running function on a computer that most people would never even think to look at.
Would it be possible? Has it ever happened yet? The same concern would probably affect windows 10 as well, because it too has live tiles.
Thanks

A:Could an infection be delivered via a live tile in windows 8/8.1 ?

Tile images are usually hosted by programs so in order to get malicious one would require you to install one of those. You can still create one of your own and for example poll data from
website. It usually involves downloading image and small config file. In this case the host is IE.
 
Technically it could be possible to send some malformed config which then uses some vulnerability within system itself in order to inject malicious code. Still would still require you or some other program in your computer to create new live tile. I don't think it would be very useable case since you already have an access to the system at that point.
 
I don't think its going to be any less secure then just surfing over web. Microsoft controls Windows Store so there shouldn't be any problem with that matter of malicious data being send over their channels.
If there were some major security issues with this I think they would have been noticed at this point. But this is majorly just speculation on my part.
 
@EDIT
 
So as Didier Stevens pointed out, live tile hosts(Apps) are run inside sandbox environment. Most malicious active would require to escape that sandbox or use
some other exploit. As with the regular programs, user discretion is still advised when installing apps.

A:Mail Live Tile not Working after Windows 8.1 Upgrade

OK. Not sure what is going on. My Yahoo Mail account would not allow me to set it up as get messages as they occur. I had to set it up as check every 15 minutes. My Gmail account did not have this issue. But still not getting the live tile to work. I saw 15 apps needed updating now, so did that (mail was one of them), but still no live tile working for mail.

I finally decided to install Yahoo Mail because I needed the live tile for that account. But that live tile was not working either. I had people send me emails, and nothing. They sent to Yahoo and to Hotmail. Then after about 4 hours, all of a sudden I started getting the live tiles updating. I have no idea why.

I removed Yahoo Mail, and still the live tile worked for mail. I waited until the next morning to verify it was all good and it is still working.

So marking as solved. Not sure what solved it, but there you go.

I have a simple little problem that I need help fixing. In my start menu in Windows 10 Pro Anniversary Edition 14393.82, my live tile for my photos is completely missing. I know it use to be there but I may have done something to delete it or maybe Microsoft has updated something that made it disappear. Whatever my problem is, I really like that particular live tile and I need help to restore it.

Thanks in advance,
Rocky

A:How To Restore Photos Live Tile In Start Menu?

Hello Rocky,

Look to see if you see "Photos" listed in the All apps left side of the Start menu. If there, then you can right click on it and click on "Pin to Start" to restore the Photos tile.

Ok, maybe I?m missing something but accessing the pictures (live pictures tile) folder from the start menu shows my photo?s but not in the order I?d like them to be in. As such, to my horror I?ve found I can?t move them around (re-arrange them).

I can obviously re-arrange them if I access the ?My Pictures? folder through explorer, in fact they?re actually arranged differently than what is displayed accessing it through the Windows Start Screen.

Anyway is it possible to arrange them there because trying to manually move them around proves fruitless.

Also, how do you take a snip of the stat screen using the snip tool? God Win 8 can be annoying at times.

Thanks.

A:Question about My Pictures (live tile) on Start Menu?

There is a big fat tile named "Photos" - It does not seem to connect to the Library. Oh yes, it does, it takes a while to populate.

It would seem that the tiles in the app cannot be moved at all. I don't know about the snip tool, but someone here should know that.

I have noticed over the past 4 weeks that my Windows Store App Live tile displays a number of updates for example 19 - when you go into the store and click on updates there may be only 14 or 15 updates.

I know changes have been made to Skype updates and this is no longer available to update via the app - have there been any other changes I should be aware of? This is not just on one device but 4 in the same household. None of the Live tiles display the number of updates actually being available?

Previously the live tile and actual updates available have always matched?

Confused and would appreciate any help

Thank you

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??

Is there a procedure for syncing the calendar app in Win 10 with the Outlook 2013 calendar? I have been trying to sync my calendar in Outlook 2013 with my Blackberry Z30 in Blackberry Blend and Blackberry Link. So far I can only sync Windows 10 contacts with my BB Z30. Selecting the Calendar app isn't an option -- see the attachment. The Blackberry help and support sites are neither helpful nor supportive.

A:Windows 10 calendar and Outlook 2013 calendar

Not really. RIM software is hard to do. Try setting up the email settings with calendat on the phone. I know that howardforums.com is the best cellular forum that may still have their RIM forum up.

I use Sunrise with Chrome, so that I can sync my iCloud Calendar.

A:Photos on my Lumia 550 that I deleted are still showing up on the live tile. How do I delete them?

I bought my online upgrade and let it proceed from W7 and later downloaded and burned the .iso, so what I have is a true upgrade from W7 and not a clean install. I really have no big issues, just anoyances really, with my live tiles.

My Live tiles don't update them selves unless I open them first. What I mean is for example; the wikipedia tile gives me sugested articles in the live tile, however if I don't open it, it keeps the same info from the day prior. Same goes for the dictionary tile, it should give me the word of the day, unless I open it the tile never refreshes and stays on the previous word. I won't even get into the Mail app and tile that don't notify or update unless I open it.

My question is would any of you try a clean install to fix this? I really hate to reinstall all my programs, but really what's the point in a live tile if it isn't actually live

I guess I am just wondering what some of you gurus would try to fix this little quirk or if anyone else has this problem?

Thanks

Geeve

A:thoughts from gurus on a fresh reinstall live tile issues.

I've seen this happen when I hibernate my puter many times during the day and resume from hibernate. Sometimes it isn't connected to the network, and when I do, the tiles will usually refresh. Sometimes not, but when I restart they will refresh.

Don't know if this helps, but might help.
