Microsoft Works Calendar Problems

I have a dell inspiron 14 running windows 7 and microsoft works came installed. I can't open the calendar. Error "works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the calendar. Try reinstalling works, and then starting the program again. " It did not come with a backup disk or any disk for that matter. So are they wanting me to purchase a whole new microsoft works program just for the calendar to work? I don't think so! Any suggestions?

Opening As An Email Attachment Files Error "works Cannot Open Attachment"

I have a new dell inspiring laptop with windows 7. Every document that i create within the works program will not open as an email attachment, even when i send it to myself on the very same computer in which it was created. Other people have complained that they cannot open my . Wps attachments in yahoo, hot mail, etc. The error message "works cannot open attachment. May be in use in other application. File may be corrupt" (paraphrased) occurs each and every time i try to open it.

Calendar

What happened to my windows vista calender? I did the upgrade from vista to win7rc1 and now i no longer have the calender? Someone please tell me i'm just not looking in the right place for it?

I loved that calender, i used it like my life depended on it and it was one of the best windows apps i've ever had. The hotmail live calender just isn't the same, it only reminds me when i'm logged into windows live, the windows calender pops up reminders for me for everything by just having my computer on. I'm going crazy not being able to find it.

All my other programs are there from vista, why did it kill the calender, is there some way to download and install it so i can get it back?

Outlook Calendar

I teach at a college and use outlook at work and at home also. I am trying to set up a shared student outlook calender so that tutors can use this to place their lesson itinerary/schedule into for each subject (the lessons could be added as recurring appointments). The lesson schedule is usually around 36 weeks - 1 lesson per week.

Specifically i would like to know if its possible to isolate one of the recurring appointments in outlook and view all the series of appointments on one page. As each weekly lesson(appointment) contains unique content and is different from week to week, we need to be able to view them all rather than the 'open and edit this series' option which treats the whole series generically and would apply any edit to every appointment in the series.

For example rather than displaying the full working week/month. If a lesson took place on a tuesday each week at 1030, could we isolate this series and only see these tuesday weekly sessions (tuesday week 1 appointment displayed next to tuesday week 2 appointment and so on)? This would allow the staff to view all these appointments only on one page as opposed to seeing every day of the week/month.

Win 7 Calendar

Windows 7. I can not seem to find windows calendar as i had in vista. This was a wonderful program and i used it all the time. Can you tell me if it is still in 7. If it is not you will have some very unhappy people. I will be for one. I do like the new 7 but i sure wish i had my calendar. I have tried looking under programs which it had been in vista and could not find it. I then looked under control panel with no luck. Where is it. I have important items in the vista to alert me of dates, what will happen now.

Calendar With Automatically Update

There is a calendar in vista, a good thing. I understand about windows live but. Lets see as i see it i have to open sign on to the net just to check my calendar, and have multiple windows open to the net if i want to have my calendar available. Some how i don't see this as a good thing. It would be much easier if you added a calendar to win 7 or better yet copied apple and created one that would automatically update my phone and computer at the same time. The current setup with live forces me to use the net and when the net is down. No calendar. Any suggestions would be welcome?

Where is the clock, calendar and weather station? I upgraded from vista to windows 7. In vista, i had a program that allowed me to display an actual clock, weather station where i could monitor my local weather and a calendar on my desktop. They popped up every time i started my computer. I don't know what the name of the program was. Is there such a program in windows 7 and if so, where can i find it?

Sharepoint Calendar Appointments 1 Hour Out When Connecting Through Outlook 2007

We currently have a sharepoint 2007 environment in which we use calendars. When we connect to the calendar using outlook 2007, the appointment is out by 1 hour (2pm start in sharepoint calendar reads as 1pm in outlook). If i view the appointment through a browser, the times are correct. It is only when using outlook 2007. A little background. Western australia had trialled daylight savings (dlt) for three years and decided against it. To then remove dlt we needed to apply a number of patches. This has now been done to all servers in the environment including sql, mos, ad, and exchange. The client (win 7. 0) is correct. Times on all servers are correct.

Only One Speaker Works On Headphones

This is not a problem with the headphones, i've tried multiple pairs, each of which works fine on other devices. Nor is it a problem with the left-right speaker balance as i've checked that setting. Oddly enough the inbuilt speakers work fine. Okay so with those checks out of the way, i'm using a 2 week old acer aspire timeline as3810t running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just a few days ago suddenly i notice that when using headphones only the left speaker gives any sound. It's like the right speaker doesn't exist. I emailed acer tech support but they didn't reply and it's been 4 days. The laptop has a hdmi out and a black audio jack with a headphones icon and the letters spdif. I've also tried uninstalling the audio thing in device manager and downloaded the latest drivers, all to no avail.

I just had a hunch that completely wiping the hard disk and reinstalling windows would fix the problem, as it's hard to imagine that the audio jack just died (jiggling it around does not work). So before i do that and before i make a warranty claim, i was thinking someone would be able to show me how to check the relevant settings etc without completely obliterating the current windows installation.

Ram Works On Xp But Not On Win 7

I've recently upgraded to windows 7 from windows xp, upon trying to install windows 7 i frequently kept getting bsods so i took all but one piece of ram out figuring that would be the likely problem (as this has happened in the past with windows 7 installations i have done) sure enough windows 7 then installed perfectly. However, all of my ram doesn't work with windows 7, apart from one 1gb stick, all the other sticks cause my pc to bsod. I find it hard to believe that all of my pieces of ram are faulty, so i'm left wondering on what it is that's not letting my ram work. As i said, this ram worked fine with windows xp, but just not windows 7 (or windows vista)

Reserve How Fn Button Works?

I have an hp g62-134ca. On my old computer (running vista) i used to use f2 to edit cells in excel instead of having to double-click. It saved me a lot of time. On my new computer (g62-134ca), the fn button works in reserved. In other words, if i press f2, the monitor brightness is decreased (f3 makes the monitor brighter). To edit an excel cell, i need to press the fn + f2 combo (or double-click with my mouse). I'm wondering if there's a way that i could reverse how the fn button works so that if i press f2, i edit an excel cell, and if i press fn + f2 i decrease the monitor brightness. Thank you for any tips!

Only 64-bit Ie Works In Win 7

I upgraded to windows 7 about a month ago and can only use ie 64 bit to connect to the internet. My 32 bit ie doesn't connect (i.e. Program files (x86)). That means flash does not work and i have been unable to connect using quicken, napster, itunes, thunderbird, and other programs that i use (all these programs say i have no internet connection and to try again after i connect or something to that effect). I'm only speculating that the latter issue (many programs not recognizing my internet connection) is related to the same problem (i.e. 64 v. 32 bit).

Monitor Only Works With Analogue Input

I have installed windows 7 on a new hard disk in my pc. I also have a new graphics card geforce gt240. When running vista my monitor was connected via dvi only. When i boot up the machine the monitor works until just after the windows logo and then goes blank. It works fine with an analogue cable. I have installed the latest driver from nvdia for the graphics card. In device manager the monitor driver shows up as generic non pnp monitor. It is a viewsonic 20inch flat panel monitor and is definitely pnp.

It works fine in dvi on another machine running xp so the monitor is ok. I tried loading a new viewsonic driver but the installation said it couldn't detect my monitor and aborted. Should i try to install a generic pnp monitor driver and if so where can i get one?

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Freezes And Works In Safe Mode Only

Acer aspire 7740-6656 laptop less than 6 mos old windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel core i5-430m processor w/4 gb ddr3 1066 sd ram, & hd on-board graphics problem: currently only run windows in safe mode:when run in normal mode windows runs for 5 min, then freezes which prevents anything from working - keyboard, touchpad, even the screen freezes. For instance if windows is in the process of upgrading as it was today the install window freezes. All that can be done is to power off machine and reboot into safe mode - note: safe mode networking does not work either.

Have tried system restore in safe mode with success of taking system back but it does not resolve the problem. Acer ts is no help, they are useless and all windows diagnostics show no hardware or software issues when run in safe mode. Have done several re-installs of the os, drivers, etc. From the hidden partition on the hard drive with no resolution and there are no error messages generated when the system locks up.

Only Internet Explorer 64-bit Works

Only internet explorer 64 bit works. I've searched everything. And no answers. I believe it a driver thing but i know others have experienced this issue.google chrome won't work nor will firefox, nor will ie 32 bit. Multiple reboots. Total scan, don't have norton, installed nod 32 and uninstalled it, did the winscock things as admin, all the other suggestions too. Problems with adobe flash downloads. Etc. Yes, i've done everything and tried everything and still no fix! Why is none from microsoft giving an answer.

It happened before about 2 months ago to me and i roll backed to a date. Then it worked. Then re-installed all windows update. All was working fine then google chrome stopped working. Just like that 3 days ago. I tried to restore/rollback to that same date and nothing. Then went through all the updates again and a million other things. I don't want a work around. I want a fix! Can anyone suggest the boot method so both 32 & 64 bit drivers work properly? It's very frustrating. It's a new hp computer running windows 7 64-bit and windows essentials as my antivirus.

Audio On Webcam No Longer Works

I am pretty sure that since i ended up with 64 bit system type, that is when my audio stopped working on webcam. I know when i upgraded to windows 7 the webcam disappeared, was so happy when i got it back thanks to this site, i didn't even notice the sound was gone. Anyway, have to use google to use alot of things i need. I just want to change back to 32 bit, anyone else have an idea what could be wrong or how to go back, i would appreciate it very much. I would go back to vista if i didn't have to go through so many changes again. So far i don't see where windows 7 is anything but a pain in the butt.

Ms Works 9 Issues With Home Upgrade

My parents after upgrading vista home to win 7 home had allof the icons change to wordpads. The icons are also inactive. On the start menu if a program is clicked a dialogue box opens stating can't open file at this location, or file may be corrupt. I walked them through unistalling ms works 9 (ms works, ms powerpoint viewer, and live office) reboot and all files reappear and work properly.

Tried to reinstall ms works and it returns to the wordpad icons and locked out of programs. You can open a word (works) file from the library fine but not from the start menu or icons. Had them uninstall for now. Until i can get a better answer. Any thoughts?

Cd/dvd Drive No Longer Works After Upgrade

I just installed my windows 7 upgrade and i have a problem. After the install (upgrade, not custom) my cd/dvd drive no longer works. I can't run anything! Software, movies, nothing! I've been on the phone with tekkies from microsoft and compaq most of the morning and they are about as clueless on this as i am. We went through everything we could think of concerning this problem and one of the techs said microsoft probably didn't think to update the driver software for windows 7. Is anybody else having this problem? I talked to the biggest nerds microsoft has to offer and they are stumped as well. Anybody?

File Sharing Between Xp With Office And Win 7 With Ms Works

File sharing between windows xp with microsoft office and windows 7 with microsoft works word processor and spreadsheets. I work for a small non-profit and just opened our first office. We received a donated rebuilt pc with microsoft xp office products which were compatible with what i had been using at home. Just received an new dell inspiron with windows 7 and the microsoft works programs installed. The systems are wirelessly networked to share files.

However, the new system will not install many of the existing logo images installed in our forms, and when they do install they aren't proportional or different colors. And formatting is often lost in the . Wps files.

I have been able to open files, edit and then re-save in the .doc format, but it is time consuming and doesn't solve the formatting or image issues. I have not been able to figure out how to run the compatibility software.

No Usb Devices Works Except Mouse / Keyboard

There are some threads here about non working usb devices. I read them all (i think) and tried all different kind of solutions but none is working. I have a hp ex500aa-b1u desktop. I used to have xp enterprise. One day the mouse and keyboard stopped working. I suspected some kind of virus and after a lot of work managed to start it in fail safe mode, backed up my files and then reinstalled xp.
Mouse and keyboard started working but all oter devices i put in (usb flash memory, camcorder, usb disk etc) just get the message "unknown usb device". I installed w7 enterprise instead but still have the same problem.

Is it possible that i had a virus that did something to my bios? I also have a built in usb disk that came with the computer. This disk is found after maybe 15 minutes after startup. But the speed when copying something from it is very slow. Maybe 700 kb/s.
