  celestialstar 10:29 27 Jul 08

Everytome I try to enter calendar inWorks 8.5 get microsoft error message about app closing down. Not getting reminder up on starting and can use all the other parts - wordprocessing etc.

Have uninstalled and reinstalled but still have same problem.

Any thoughts?

How do I disable the calendar?

1. Is simply do not use the calendar - use the rest of works - if it is functioning OK.
and download and install Rainlendar

Or if you want to take it out

2. Start/All programs/scroll to MS Works/right click/click on Uninstall
Unistall the program.- start/Control Panel/ install-uninstall programs - scroll to MS works click on uninstall

Then load the CD, and when the load process started you should get which elements of the program you want. Simply 'untick' Calendar

Doing a system restore before all else
The program appears to be damaged- therefore a systyem restore to a date before the first appearance of the problem may put it all back together.

I've tried that. Unfortunately didn't solve problem.

Have uninstall and installed several times but same fault.

Will have to forget the calendar in works and use the one you advised
