UK's Kalender v2.5.2 Updated

billon on 20 May 2017

UK's Kalender is a personal calendar that sits in the system tray and reminds you of upcoming events or deadlines. Events can be displayed in weekly, fortnightly, monthly or yearly view. They can also be organized into different categories with their own settings. Documents or programs can be attached to an event so that they are automatically launched when the event fires. The program also allows sharing via network (multi-user).

Now that there's no "Portable" option, there's still a method: just install as normal to any directory. Create an empty text file and name it "Rainlendar2.ini" where settings will be saved to. You're all set.

Still use this program daily for over a year.

WalCal v1.07.0001

  • Suggested by Midas

WalCal modifies a copy of your current wallpaper to include a static calendar. The program then sets this new version as your current wallpaper. Unlike other calendar tools, once created it takes up no CPU or memory.

Thanks, IaBaas, for posting this. May I suggest contacting the developer about that issue? I'm sure he'd pleasantly surprised by our interest. Thanks again.

"Desktop Calendar and Desktop Info appear to be attached to the desktop and technically they are. However they still disappear when you click the "Show Desktop" button in the Quick Launch toolbar. This is correct behaviour according to Windows; it's just very annoying. Presently, there's nothing you can do about this."

Perhaps not as easy or up-to-date, but I'm really satisfied with Walcal; I have been using it for years and it's portable (writes settings to ini).

Info and download @ http://www.blahblah.se/software/Downloads.html

From site: "WalCal create a static calendar on your current wallpaper. Once it has created the calendar it is not needed to keep it running. This way i[t] will, obviously, not consume any CPU or memory. The program uses a copy of the current wallpaper, this way it does not destroy the original wallpaper."

@ Midas: Thanks, I added Walcal to the database.

This program seems to be abandoned, but anyway, there is a natively portable build by Exstora developer, I will provide a direct download link for anyone who is interested- http://www.exstora.com/files/2.9/Exstora_2.9_en.zip

Midas on 2015-10-12 14:02

Since there's now a natively portable download for Exstora (see above; thanks smaragdus), I'm moving the executable extractions instructions here:

1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice
2. Delete NSIS].nsi and $PLUGINSDIR
3. Move/copy exstora_dat.xml file from the %APPDATA% Exstora folder into the one with Exstora.exe
4. Launch Exstora.exe

@Midas
I think you may keep instructions for the installer where they were- the download link for the portable version was not easy to find and it may disappear again. ;)
