Lost events under Windows XP 64 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
Hallo,

in windows XP64 you will lost all 'events' and 'to does' when you change the transparency mode of Rainlendar2. Also it is not possible to restore a backup file. All this works fine in XP 32 SP2. I'm using the actual version 2.02b32 of Rainlendar.

Best regards

I found that it has something to do with XP64. MS Explorer is not able to create a directory called '.rainlendar2'.

Here is a workaround: Create the directory '.rainlendar2' in a DOS box under Documents and Settings\user\

Copy the default files

Default.ics
rainlendar2.ini
rainlendar2.log

from a 32 bit Windows system to
Documents and Settings\user\.rainledar2

Set the link for the Default.ics under Options -> Calendar to Documents and Settings\user\.rainledar2\Default.ics

Import the Events and Todo's from your previous Rainlendar version and now it should works.

Best regards

Hmmm... I just tried Rainlendar on a WinXP x64 and it managed to create the folder for the settings just fine. I'm not exactly sure why it failed on your system.

I'm not able to create a .dir in the Windows Explorer but in the DOS box it is fine. I get the following Error message: "You must type a file name."
