ACT 9.0 Calendar won't open

I have ACT and my calendar quit opening.  I get a message that says ACT has "encountered a problem and needs to close"  I recently upgraded to XP SP3.  This is the second issue I've had with ACT calendar's in the last 8 months.  On the first issue I had to delete my preferences file in order for it to quit showing the mini calendar for the year 2023.  I fixed it and now seem to have a new issue.


I saw a post where someone said that the Windows setting for Daylight Savings time screwed up the calendar.  Anyone have any ideas?

Look in your Windows Event Viewer under Application (right-click on My Computer, seclect Manage and select Event Viewer).  If you see any .NET 2.0 Runtime Errors, then you will need to uninstall/reinstall ACT!  It is best to use the ACT! Uninstaller, which can be found as a file attachment in Knowledgebase article 19338.
