Hi!

OK, I upgraded my Lite to the Pro Trial version and followed instructions as provided. Calendar still will not share. What have I done incorrectly?

Hi Maggie, open the Calendar Properties by double-clicking the calendar's name. On the "Sync" tab, check the box labeled "Sync with file or URL (2-way)" and then click OK. The calendar should become editable. Please let me know if that doesn't fix it.

Thanks. I went to the calendar and did as you said. For the entry in the sync with URL I pointed to my desktop dropbox, is that correct?

Yes, that's correct. If your PC is configured like mine, there should be a Dropbox folder under "C:\Users\YourLoginName\Dropbox". If you were already subscribed to an ICS file located on your Dropbox, then the path should already be specified... unless I misunderstood what you wrote previously.

Woo hoo! Worked like a champ! Thank you, again. This program works well and we will be purchasing the requisite licenses for Pro. It is rare that the owner of a firm actually monitors and responds to the customer forum. You are to be commended. With support like this, and a great product, you set the bar for the other dot.com businesses.

Thanks you again,

Maggie!
