Today I ran some more tests and most of the popups did not appear. I need to be able to rely on *all* popups to show at startup (while CEP starts minimized) and unfortunately the conclusion I reached in my previous round of tests was correct.

Should I manage to get hold of v3.02 I would be more than happy to see if that aspect has been solved but so far I will discontinue using CEP.

Thanks for all your support and suggestions :)

Sorry, I may have disabled the PM notifications in my profile. I'll enable them again.

I usually don't use automatic notifications for events, but as a test, I tried creating a new recurring event and yes, CEP produced a popup for it. There seems to be one exception: The default events that came with CEP have the options in that setup dialog, as well as some other options, grayed out. The workaround would be to delete those events and create new ones for the same dates.

Also, you might want to advance the start dates on some of those recurring events from time to time, otherwise they won't disappear from dates in the past. Unless of course you want to remember all the Christmases back to 1980. ;) To advance the Easter and Good Friday dates, all you need to do is use January 1 for the year in which you want them to start. The calculation is done by CEP.

@outskirter: It appears that I cannot reply to your PM :(

Anyway I just wanted to inform you of the new comment I posted above.

Please PM me if you add a new comment as I am not frequently monitoring this area.

@outskirter: Thanks for the PM heads-up :)

When I was still using CEP I remember 2 bugs, one small and one big, the latter being a deal breaker.

SMALL -->> When changing **some** of the default colors in Setup/Colour/Calendar (in the "Calendar" mode) the new settings would not be kept.

I must admit however that testing that particular option today (just to be sure I redownloaded CEP and I changed all the default colors since I did not remember which colors did not stick) appears to be working!!!

BIG -->> When adding new events (in the "Event" mode) if you check the "Popup" box in Event Setup/Action do you actually see any popups for **recurrent** events?

If your answer is YES then I will have to conclude that there is something wrong with my system that prevents that from happening... In which case this is not a bug of CEP but rather a bug of my XP :(

The only time I lost customizations was when I moved the program, together with its INI file, to a different folder. I revised the desktop shortcut accordingly, but forgot to modify the "start in" item, which was still pointing to the old location. The program ran OK, but couldn't find the relocated INI file, so it created a new one in the old folder and consequently started up with the default settings.

Also, you can save your calendar data (CDB) file anywhere and CEP will remember its location, but without the INI file to tell it which calendar file was most recently opened, it will start up with a new blank calendar, so you'll have to load the calendar from the Open dialog.

Otherwise I find this program reliable; it has never lost data or crashed. There is one thing I have noticed, however: If you export your calendar data as a CSV file and open that in a text editor you may find some duplicate entries. I think this is because the date for the entry is at the beginning or end of a month, so it appears not only in the proper month, but also in the gray area outside that month. In effect, the program may be storing it as two entries. Just a guess. Not a problem, anyway.

Once I created a .cdb file and loaded that file my problems were ended.

@outskirter: Sorry for my late reply (feel free to PM me for faster response).

I discontinued using this app a while ago... What I remember so far is that CEP was not properly saving some of the settings/preferences, which were lost at every run.

Basically if one would run Calendar Editor Pro without customizations one would not be likely to stumble across these bugs ;)

@spicydog: I'd be very interested in knowing what bugs you've discovered in version v.3.00. I had 3.02 when the author's site was still up, but deleted it, so when I decided I wanted to use it again, I had to revert to 3.00. Now I'm still trying to figure out where the bugs are hiding, because I've been using the app extensively and no differences in the behavior have shown up -- yet. ;)
