View Full Version : Ical locking up / not working?

26th December 2010, 10:47 AM
Hi there. Running OS x version 10.5.8 on my Imac. Never been able to use Ical (ver 3.0.8). Can't add events or anything, I hit the + button and all seems to lock up and end up having to quit. I downloaded a new version and after it checks compatibility says I can't install? Anyone have any ideas?

Version I have is 4.0.4, with OS 10.6.5. It's possible the latest version you downloaded isn't compatible with OS 10.5. If you have the install disk/s that came with the iMac, iCal should be there somewhere. If you can find it, reinstall from there and see if that helps.

I tried reinstalling it. Exactly the same thing :-(

Only two other things I can think of to try: first, delete Preferences (~/library/preferences/com.apple.iCal) and let it try to rebuild the preference file; second, see if iCal works when you log on as another user.
