Updating Calendar Error

#1
For some reason Windows Live feels the need to try and update calendar
events. I have no idea what it is up to since I have no events in the
calendar. All I know is it keeps trying and then says ERROR. How do I
either kill the updating, uninstall the calendar or fix the problem -
whatever that is. Seems to indicate a MSFT server issue? Help would be
greatly appreciated.

This is the error message I keep getting.

"There was an error when attempting to connect to the Windows Live Calendar
service. If the error persists, check to see if there's an upgrade of
Windows Live Mail available or contact a service representative."

The mail accounts update ok.

I am having the same problem, though a lot worse. While WLM is attempting to
update the calendar (which I also do NOT use) my dual core CPU maxes at 100%
for both cores and freezes up the computer until the error message finally
pops up. Then I can use the computer again.

AND, the calendar can *NOT* be uninstalled!

EACH time I opened WLM, I would have that same error message.
I posted the question, and this came from one of the MVPs :

( quote ) : " I have also gotten that error quite a bit lately.
MS has indicated that their calendar server is overloaded,
and it may take some time before they get the problem
corrected.
Gary VanderMolen, MS-MVP (Mail) " ( end quote )

Calendar and Contacts are updated on program open when it trys to sync with the server.

Are you using a Live ID to logon when WLM opens.
If so, and the problem is local corruption issue, one might try deleting the Live Calendar folder and database to allow it to be
recreated.

Your calendar store is at:
C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Calendars
(Vista)

C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Calendars (xp)

Hello,
already read in earlier posts and tried this, with a positive result for 1
or two times.
After that, same problem.

I noticed in another forum that that server that holds the calendar data was/is experiencing some overload issues. If so, then sync
could be a problem for others too.

Beyond that, if it doesn't clear up, it migh be appropriate to initiate an incident report(request for help) via Support.live.com

I'd like to disable the calendar. I tried : Calendar > Tools > Options >
Connection > Stop signing in.
In the process, I lost my Contact names. I signed back in, I got my Contact
names back.
Is there another way to disable Calendar ? Thank You.

Sorry, I don't know of any way to kill the calendar updating
without also killing the syncing of contacts.

No..the calendar sync can not be disabled. When not signing on, there is no remote calendar to access or sync.

With respect to not signing on(WLM/Tools/Connections/Stop Signing In)
WLM has at least two sets of contacts. One for each of these.
- Live ID use to sign-on
- Default

The former causes the local contacts for a a given Live ID to sync with the web server(contacts.live.com)
- many refer to this as Hotmail. Hotmail is just a web mail client that provides access to contacts.live.com(online Contacts
are called People)
- People contains email address in ones address book, messenger contacts, and people invited to a one's network.


The latter(Default) is blank until one enters or imports contacts.

If more than one Live ID is available(for signon or switch to another Live ID), then that Live ID has its own unique set of
contacts.


Likewise, each Live ID has its own calendar.

I think I have found a temporary solution to the calendar update server
overload or whatever - I went in to the Tools>Options>General tab and turned
off (unchecked) the Send and Receive at Startup and Check for New Mail every
X minutes. Seems to quiet the #$%^ calendar updating. However, now I have
to hit F5 to get all my e-mail accounts updated. Works for me but my wife
questions why I keep changing things and going backward!! She wants the old
Windows Mail. Hopefully, someone from MSFT is looking at this stuff and
will fix the problem?

I have this same problem -- I have noticed an additional difference. Our
computer has two log-on accounts with different live ID's The calendar sync
works on one account and gives the error one the other. The difference on
the account that gives the error is that it has two emails setup in the live
mail to monitor different live accounts. The problem seems that calendar
sync does not know how to sync two calendars with one update. The primary
email calendar gets sync by looking at the web version and the other does
not. It appears to hang up and error the sync process.

The calendar(and Contacts) sync for the Live ID in use.

As an example, if one makes a change in a #2 Live ID's calendar by use of the web interface(calendar.live.com) use of another
LiveID(#1) for logon in WLM(regardless of how many Live ID email accounts are setup)only one calendar syncs(#1). Live ID#2 calendar
will sync on next use of Live ID#2 as a sign-on or via switching to another Live ID.

Yup ! Back to square one!!!! Here is another bandage solution given by
someone from this forum.
Tools > Options > General tab. UN-check " Send and receive at startup ".
UN-check " check for messages every ......"
Downside of this method : you have to hit Sync or F5 for new messages.
