I get the "Cannot load calendar" problem, when trying to use my google calendar.

Does not work with Google Calendar. Entered iCal address in field and application rejected it, saying "Could not load the calendar (404)." Other users report the same problem.

Hey there, it's very important that you change the Calendar Address from: —> to —>

awsome style and easy to setup!

Great idea but needs to be updated when its sources are updated, namely when ms or google update their calendat formats.

I really love this calendar gadget. It's exactly what I want. However, my low rating is due to the fact that it refuses to read and display my Google calendar. I copy the private ICS link from Google Calendar's setting page and paste into the URL input field, and the response is Could not load the calendar "*****/basic.ics". Below the dates the text "Loading..." is then displayed, but none of my calendar data appears.

This is a magnificent calendar that does its job perfectly. Although it would be good if it could sync you Google Tasks as well. I use this gadget for reminding me to finish assignments and to do tasks don't appear. I have to add them as events. Overall an excellent little gadget. Well done :)

Brilliant! It does what it promises without any hassle. I'm also using this with 2560x1440 monitor and size is perfect for me. This looks good and has all the functionality I need.

After using the Calendar app in Windows 8, I wanted something similar in my good old Windows 7. This just fit the bill. Excellent gadget!

I really like the gadget, but the week numbers are wrong! (week commencing Feb 24th (2013) is 9 not 8 as displayed by the gadget. Please solve that to be 5 stars :) Thanks.

Nice Gaget. I just wish that it didn't shrink the calendar to 1 week when I dock it in the Vista side bar. Probably not possible, but would be nice if it could work with the google tasks with check marks. It does what it says, I'll keep looking to see if there is one that does what I want.

Nice gadget. Only issue is size. It needs more options for larger view. Even when set to "Large size" it's too small. I use a monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution and it's just too hard to read.
by gquiring on Nov 15, 2012 at 5:56 PM
Does exactly as it says. I'd just like to make the gadget bigger.
by davidmcluckie on May 11, 2012 at 6:00 PM
The best gadget on the market! Simple but very useful!
by BramvanLeeuwen on Dec 12, 2011 at 1:26 PM
Great Gadget. It doesn't seem to update events when the time is changed in live mail calendar.

Supports Spanish language?
by santiagochinas on Feb 12, 2011 at 6:19 AM
It's a great and useful gadget. Is there any way to adjust the font size? On a large screen, it's tiny and hard to read.
by JimStanley29 on Feb 10, 2011 at 4:43 AM
This is an excellent gadget and exactly what I have been looking for a while now for. Thank you so much for creating it and I hope it brings you considerable success. I was looking for a calendar gadget like this so I could have in on the bottom of my 2nd monitor (Portrait Mode) so that it is always accessible, right next to my clock and weather gadgets. It is working flawlessly for me.

Looks nice, however, I can't get it to work at all. I use Outlook 2010, and publish my calendars online at the Microsoft Office site (the default in Outlook 2010). I cant get it to work at all. If I use the "webcals" prefix, I get a pop-up error message. If I change it to http, the error message goes away, but the calendar doesn't show any information.
by Kittyburgers on Dec 9, 2010 at 5:43 PM
this is JUST what i was looking for... intuitive interface and stable functioning... though it'd have been a lot better if it displayed different calendar dates in different colours...
by nilakshdas on Nov 25, 2010 at 4:55 AM
awesome widget!
by solarding on Nov 2, 2010 at 11:54 PM
This is a great gadget. Thank you for sharing it. I think Microsoft should buy it and make it as a default gadget.
by eternalko on Oct 31, 2010 at 10:22 AM
This widget is very glitchy. Events show up as duplicates, don't get removed when deleted from Google Calendar (I currently have a phantom event for friday showing up that I deleted long ago, tried refreshing/re-adding the calendar, nothing changed) and notifications pop up a lot and much later than when they should (they only seem to pop up after I come out of a standby or hibernate).

Doesn't work with a local ics file - [object error] pops up three times when ever it attempts to check the calendar. Win 7 x64 Ultimate
by dglawton on Aug 3, 2010 at 1:00 PM
A great gadget, despite being in alpha it is stable and very useful
by cokray on Jul 13, 2010 at 5:18 AM
doesn't support Hebrew...
by bugmenot2 on Apr 21, 2010 at 11:18 AM
This is an excellent step forward for Windows Live Calendar users. Many of us have multiple calendars on WLC I am sure. Therefore the ability to give the gadget a title that can differentiate each one would make it even better than excellent!
by cyberpaz on Mar 22, 2010 at 9:29 AM
Great for being able to view your calendar from your desktop and getting alerts without having to have a full app running
by Septarius on Jan 14, 2010 at 9:43 PM
thanks,I need it very much. thanks for share it
by xxxzs521 on Jan 11, 2010 at 9:08 AM
Great Gadget! Displays calendar/events without Outlook running.
by Jschumann on Dec 26, 2009 at 4:41 PM
excellent thing, cant wait for more skins and after reading a disheartening post in discussion and finding out we probably wont get 'add event from gadget' feature, I still really like this product!
by cadlum on Dec 16, 2009 at 5:47 AM
Works fine even in Windows 7 64 Bits
by fakher on Dec 7, 2009 at 9:27 PM
cool... I love this gadget.. thank so much.
by raykey on Nov 21, 2009 at 12:12 AM
Provides a valuable service. Easy to use. Seems to work well -even in "alpha" form
by gerryp on Nov 20, 2009 at 10:01 PM
Exactly what I needed to compliment my fresh Win7 desktop. It's slick, functional and easy to use. The only thing I would change is having the time added under the appointment list for quick reference. Thanks!

the best gadget I have
