Windows Vista Calendar Question

by jrouse17 / January 23, 2008 2:20 AM PST

Hi. I just bought a new computer with Windows Vista on it. My old computer had Windows 98. My question is about the new Calendar in Vista. I cant seem to figure out how to make appointments reoccur without changing all the info in all of them. 98 Calendar would ask if i wanted to change the info in this occurrence or in all the occurrences. Vista does not ask this and automatically changes the info in all the occurrences. Also is there a way to change the color of an individual appointment without changing all the colors?

One has Windows 98se, the new one has Vista. For me to replicate the issue I need to figure out what Calendar you used in Windows 98se. It appears to me it's not a native part of 98se.

Hope you can fill in the missing info.

Oh I see what you are saying. Well it was already loaded on my Windows 98se OS when I got it back in 1999. It is Microsoft Works Calendar version 1.0. Does that help? Thanks, JoAnn

I had Outlook 2000 to try this but I can't replicate your issue since I never had Works. Armed with this new information maybe someone with that combo can investigate it.
