Bob's Web Calendar Program is designed to generate static web pages that look like
monthly calendars. The generated files can be uploaded to a web site.
You can put text or images or other web content in each date. You can also put
content above and below each calendar. It is designed to be simple to use
and provide the basic functionality needed by clubs and other organizations.
There are several ways to download Bob's Calendar program.
There are two files in the zip. One is the WebCalendar.exe program
and the other is the WebCalendarHelp.chm help file. Extract them both
to the same folder and you are good to go. You may want to put a shortcut
on your desktop to the WebCalendar.exe program or maybe you can just put
them on your desktop.
This is a self extracting zip file with the same contents as the .zip file.
If you do not have Winzip installed, you can use this option.
Run the exe file and it will expand into the two files mentioned above.
- One Click Install Page
If you are running Windows Vista, Windows XP, or Windows 2000, the install page
gives you a button to install using Microsoft's One Click technology.
With this installation process you get an entry in the Start menu and the
program can be controlled with the Start->>Control Panel->Programs and Features
menu. This is the method recommended by Microsoft.
Note:On XP, you may get a page of XML when you press the Install button.
There will also be a yellow bar at the top of the page with a message about restricted content.
Right click this bar and select "Show Restricted Content" to continue the installation.
The documentation was put together with Microsoft's HTML Help Workshop. As a result, deep
under the covers, the help pages are web pages and thus can be published here so
you can look it over before downloading.
