Something in your Calendar is corrupt

by The Scummy One In reply to ms. franch

This may be affecting the reminders or a specific appointment. If a single item is not removing from the reminders, delete it right from the calendar. If it happens on several appointments, close Outlook
make sure that Outlook is really closed
go to start -- run, then type
outlook.exe /cleanreminders
when it comes back up, is it working again? If not, you may need to look through the Calendar and delete a bad event.

I can't even open the item to delete it. It keeps popping up as a reminder. It tells me "parameter is invalid - end time occurs before start time". When I look at the date specified in the reminder (from 2007) there is nothing - no event.

Time Zone or Daylight Saving time issue

by w2ktechman In reply to corrupt calendar

make sure the time zone is correct and the proper daylight saving is set. Make sure your clock is correct as well.

Run the outlook.exe /cleanreminders
and follow Peconets advice about running the /cleanfolders as well

Post back with the exact error message if it still occurs afterwards

the clock & time zone are correct. How can I run the outlook.exe/cleanreminders on Vista?

Try this command line function

Try this command line function to try to repair the reminders:
? If Outlook is not running, start Outlook, and keep Outlook running to receive reminders.
? When you create reminders, verify that they are saved in your primary Calendar or Task folder.
? Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type "outlook /cleanreminders", (without the quotes) and then click OK.
? Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /resetfolders, and click OK. Use this method if the /cleanreminders switch does not resolve the problem.
This might take some time to repair itself.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

In vista we don't have start - run. How else can I try this? Will it affect all my other reminders?

"In vista we don't have start - run"?. You are joking...

Have a good look.
You have the button called "start" and then you have the "Run" above the "Start" button.
In my earlier post i have tested this and it works fine.

Run only shows up in start menu in classic mode.
If you have the default start menu there is a white window right at the start menu that you launch all your programs from. Start typing in run in that search window and the run option will show up in the list. Highlight it and then you can follow the rest P.T.'s instructions

"run"

by bdarcy55 In reply to Start menu

I tried that. It just opens outlook & the same reminder for an event that I can't open pops up with "one or more of the parameters is invalid"

In Vista there is no start button. There is a pearl button. You can click on it, & type run in the search but cleanreminders didn't work. it only opened outlook with the same reminder pop up for which I cannot open the event.
