You can do a "manual" restore.
Go to your backup folder, and unzip one of the backup file in a temp folder.
If you're using the user folder ("Documents and Settings" or "Users") copy each .ics file inside every calendar folder into [USERFOLDER]/.rainlendar2, also copy in this same folder the .ini files. (this would be for a normal installation).
If you have several backups, check first if the calendars file had event stored and it's not an empty container.
Also, try restoring a previous backup and not the last one, because the last one is the one done in the last running. I mean, it's only 1 for day, and (maybe) you could changed it in the process.

Okay, I followed these directions. Still nothing. No events, no changes.

Took my files to a friend's house that is running Windows 7 and we installed Rainlendar 2.11 Pro and used my backup files via the Manager and it worked like a charm (we uninstalled after seeing it worked). But using the very same files on my Windows XP machine? Nothing. No events. Nothing.

So now what do I do?

I was thinking in another approach. Maybe it's the difference between XP and 7.
Before copy the rainlendar2.ini file, and keeping Rainlendar2 closed, open the file and search for "[iCalendar\ Format]". There you will find a list of the .ics files. If the path is stored in absolute way (full path) then the calendars won't be found. Replace "C:\\Users\\..." to "C:\\Documents and Settings\\...".

I will try it! Thank you. Will report back. And yes, I do think it s a compatibility issue. One of many. Sigh. Fortunately, my Win7 machine is going into the shop this week!

Sadly, it didn't work. I'm giving up now.

Thank you for all your hard work in trying to help me. You are awesome.
