  4. That may be not quite legal... and it's the Windows Vista version.
    Some of the locations to download the file are quire peculiar.

    I'm afraid I don't have an answer. I do remember hearing from
    schools using Windows for Workgroups (3.11) that lost /their/
    calendar when they upgraded - to Windows 95, I suppose -
    but I wasn't in a position to do anything for them. I think
    they would still have their program if Win 95 was just loaded
    on top.

    Microsoft Outlook /might/ be a solution.

    But apparently the problem is that the Win 98 program won't run
    in 64-bit Windows 7; in a 32-bit environment it's happy.
    So is there a way (a reasonable way) to make it happy on 64-bit?

    (AIUI, to run Windows in a "virtual machine" on Win 7, you'd need to buy
    another copy /of/ Windows. But if you have one spare... you could
    even run Windows 98. Well - maybe.)

    Otherwise...... you might want to look for a third-party calendar
    that has been on offer since at least Windows 98. Maybe they decided
    to call it something like "Calendar Plus" - but that's a Mac program.

    If you want only very simple functions, a program with the word
    "Remind" in the name may do, such as "Efficient Reminder" or "Remind-Me".

    There's one built into Windows Live Mail for free. The next option is to
    upgrade to Windows 8 which does have a calendar program in it.

  7. Honestly, I don't any longer remember it, so it would be more helpful if you
    could list requirements, and which ones you've tried and why they don't meet
    your needs. That would give us something to base a recommendation on.
