    I purchased the full version today and i get an error when I try to synch with google calendar, i was also trying to synch with other computer and didnt find an option to do so. Any one have a solution to that?

  • Mark Stone

    Please right click the calendar window, select “About”, click “Bug report” button to send the log. I will check what the issue is.

    And to sync with other computers, you just need add the same Google Calendar to your calendar list. Desktop iCalendar will sync the calendar every 10 minutes by default.

    Thank you Mark I just sent you the log

    I am having trouble syncing my google account. I had a previous account that synced fine but my new account does not.

    MSG: Invalid Credentials

    My old account address was simple enough i.e

    My new address has a period after my first initial i.e

    Could this be the reason why it wont work? My Android phone calender and other apps are able to access this new address.

    I just purchased Icalendar and I can’t get it to sync with my google calendar. I get the following error. x_yahoo_calendar_action_mobile not found. Not sure why, since I’m not trying to access a yahoo calendar. Help anyone?

    Will there be another update soon ? Two problems I’ve noticed: when using google calendar which shows facebook events, icalendar has no option to show a multiday event only on the first day. It’s just a bit annoying when party’s show up on friday and saturday. Other problem is when I click the desktop shortcut in my taskbar (vista), the calendar dissapears, even when I choose the option ‘stay on desktop’ at appearance options. Overall a good job though, nice looking calendar.

    Is there a way to only display items overdue/due today?

    I have installed icalendar light. I am not able to sign in with my google account to sync with google tasks. I get an error message saying “invalid credentials”. Could you please help me resolve this. This application has a great feature set. I would gladly purchase the pro version if this works well for me.

  • Gautam Rajanna

    Looks like the sign in problem was because my password had special characters. I changed my password to one without any special characters and it signed in just fine. Seems like a strange restriction to have though.

  • Gautam Rajanna

    Try changing your account password to one without special characters. That fixed it for me.

    Used car values
    could depend on the condition of your auto or truck and which the owner has
    taken care of the auto or truck. The car or truck industry seems to have book
    figures for chosen cars for helping in determining the quantity of a used car
    is valued at. Keep in the mind these books are recommended as guides for
    helping establish the beauty.

    It has been found
    out after numerous surveys that making an outline of the tour well in advance
    can save thousands of bucks. It is understood that sometimes it is just not
    possible to chalk out an itinerary due to the suddenness of the trip.
    However, a pre-planned tour is always cheaper

    Since I re-install windows 7 every six months or so I have the calendar database on a 2nd harddrive. Both harddrives have the same speed ratings. It takes forever for icalendar lite to access the database on the 2nd drive. Is there anyway to speed up icalender so it doesn’t take so long to load?

  • Columbus J Hinton BA, BS,

    It’s Dec 6, 2014. I was told to download a new version, but now I get different error messages. I’m sick of this, I had HIGH hopes of a desktop calendar that I could share appts and information with my family members so we’d all know our schedules. This stinks!

    Desksware… please… get it together and fix this problem. I NEED my calendar in working order.

  • Mark Stone

    It has been solved already.
