MS Works Calendar 8.5 - Error Message

Q: MS Works Calendar 8.5 - Error Message

Im sure Im being really stupid, but I cant add a new appointment in my 'microsoft works calendar'

I've had my laptop fot about 18 months now and never had any problems with it before (I use the calendar regularly)

But now, when I double click on a day to add an appointment, I get the following messgae

'Calendar couldn't create a new appointment.
Enter a different date, and then try again.'

Which ever way I try to do it, either by clicking 'new' or clicking 'File' and then 'New appointment' it always gives the same error msg?

And I know the error says try a different date, but it doesnt matter what day I click on, it just wont work

What on earth have I done? Broken it good.

Any advice would be appreciated

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

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

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'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 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.

It is my time sheet and now I can't open it, and I've lost ALL my billing for October. I'll donate big bucks if someone can help. Microsoft paid support is a joke. This has been a problem with earlier versions according to my Google search, but was supposed to be fixed with the 9.0 version - but obviously it's still an issue. Here's the error message:

There was a serious error loading the data. Your document appears to be damaged. Works will stop loading the document with what was read when the error occurred. Please try loading a recent backup copy of this document.

I've been running windows xp sp3 on my home computer for over a year now, so it's slowly filling up, but never had any problems until recently.

All of a sudden my computer has started to hang; mouse and keyboard does not work anymore, everything just stops, and it stays frozen until I manually hit the reset button. Then, everything seems normal again, until all of a sudden, after two seconds of welcome screen or a whole evening of normal computing, it freezes again.

Any tips on where to look and to repair? .. Is there an error log I can pull out of the computer somewhere to see what's going on?

Let me know what kind of info you need about my computer and I'll post it.

I have a Gateway Notebook (model 6020GZ) that runs Windows XP Home Edition. Microsoft Works 8 came pre-installed on the system. I recently started using the calender/reminder feature in Microsoft Works 8. It worked fine for several weeks, then I began to get the error message: Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and needs to close

Details are: App Name: wkscal.exe App Ver: 8.4.623.0
Mod Name: wkscalac.dll
Mod Ver: 8.4.623.0 Offset: 00066736

I have gone to and located the page that I believe would help me fix the problem, which they say is caused by either the mswkscal.wcd file is corrupted - or - the calendar file has reached a large size (which I don't think applies to me).

Microsoft's resolution includes removing Microsoft Works 8, running the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, then re-installing Works 8.

My dilemma is I don't have a disc to reinstall. I have contacted Gateway, and they told me I needed to contact Microsoft Support. Microsoft Support tells me that since the software came pre-installed, they can't help me, and I need to contact Gateway - Do you see where this is going?

I do not want to uninstall Works 8 until I am sure I will be able to re-install it. Is there a download to re-install Works 8 or a patch that will fix the problem?

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Whenever I use the preview pane in Windows Explorer to view the contents of, say, a .reg file, .txt doc, or .ini file, it crashes with "Preview Handler Surrogate Host has stopped working". I click the "Close the program" option, which is followed by an Application Error: "Exception EAccessViolation in module ShellEh428.dll" etc. I close that as well. Then the preview pane works without having to close and reopen the Explorer window. In fact, if I do close and reopen it, it happens all over again.

It's not that big an inconvenience since the Explorer window itself doesn't actually crash, but it'd sure be nice to find out why this is happening and if it can be prevented.

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

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.

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.

Help! I posted the following in the business software forum 2 months ago, and have had no replies. Surely there is someone out there with a possible solution!

My MS works reminder system has failed - it no longer pops up automatically to remind me of an entry on the calendar. I tried reinstalling Works, but this did not help.
It is possible this is related to a new computer, but I thought it was still working after the program was transferred to this computer.
I am using XP Pro (was XP Home on the old computer).
Someone suggested copying the shortcut to the start menu, but I am just computer illiterate enough that I couldn't figure that one out. Besides which, the program worked fine for a long time after the original installation.

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 calendar (former Windows Live Calendar) at 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 calendar you need a Microsoft Account (Hotmail, Live, MSN or email).

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,

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. I have much important data stored on Works Calendar, and until yesterday it worked just fine. Yesterday morning (Friday), when I started Windows, the Calendar icon was there as usual, but when I clicked on I got this message:

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

When I attempted to reinstall Works, I found out that I have to run a full recovery on my computer in order to do reinstall Works. Unfortunately, this will erase all the data on my calendar and everything else. Is there another way to restore my Calendar? Works is still operating - only Calendar is having problems.

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?

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?

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

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.

I use MS Works (8.5) database for my company booking info, and mail merge the database into confirmation letters etc (MS Works word processor).

My office has a few computers networked, and they've all got works 8.5 on them, all of them mail merge without problems - except for my own desktop machine!!

As soon as I select Tools > Mail Merge > Open Data Source I get the error:

'Works cannot open the mail merge list you selected. The file may be damaged, or it may be in a file format that Works does not support.'

Can I stress again - these files work fine on all other machines (all XP), and the message pops up before I even select which file to merge with!!? Literally when I hit the menu item!

I tried uninstalling Works, removing all mention in the registry, and reinstalling - it still does it. The database file and letter files to merge them with are all held on another computer in the office, all computers access them the same way - using the MSHOME network, no workgroup or anything.

Any ideas?? Please help!!

I just tried opening one of the mail-merge letters and linking it to a completely empty database file, saving it and trying that on the problem computer. It still gave the error.

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 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 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 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 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.
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her account, then you may need to generate an app password from her account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

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.

Re: Outlook 2003
Is there is a way to designate a Shared Outlook Calendar (that is used as our company-wide calendar) as an individual's default calendar. We are set up with a Microsoft XP Exchange Server.
The goal is to have the company-wide calendar download to a Blackberry Curve as the user's default calendar. Right now he sees his own calendar which he does not need. We have the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed on his network computer.
Thank you.

A:Can a shared Outlook '03 calendar be designated as one's default calendar?

As an addendum, it would be preferable that the Outlook/Blackberry user not be able to modify the office-wide Shared Calendar (should there be a way for him to see it) so that all changes still go through our calendar maven. Thank you.

Hi there,

Can anyone,,,help??
We use the shared calender in Gmail for keeping track of company events etc. but at this stage we need something better as we have more events to keep track of and more departments getting involved etc. Is there anyway of making the basic Gmail calendar into an updateable spreadsheet calendar that can be accessed by the entire office and/or specific department?

This is all new to me so really glad to get any advice.
