Lotus Organizer compatibility problems?


Dale I. Jones

I've used Lotus Organizer 2.1 since early 90s. I loaded it on my new
computer as part of Lotus SmartSuite release 4. I imported *.or2 files from
my old computer and all programs that I tried (123W, Organizer, & Word Pro)
seemed to work fine except I was not getting and audible alarm with the
alarm dialog box. This morning I got a premature alarm (7:30 am for an 11
am appointment) and when I cleared the alarm and double clicked on the
calendar listing the program stopped responding. I closed the program,
compacted the file, relaunched the program and clicked the appointment icon
and got the same results. I have tried several times with same results. I
am able to create tasks, addresses, anniversaries, but time related function
cause the program to lockup (not responding).

Are others experiencing similar problems?

Here's the location of IBM/Lotus' statement about VISTA and Smartsuite:


<< -- While no major compatibility issues have been reported when
running SmartSuite or Organizer on the Vista 32-bit (x86) version,
these applications are not supported by IBM/Lotus Product Development
on the Vista platform.

-- The 64-bit version Vista does not allow proper functionality because
of the legacy computer code within SmartSuite and Organizer. Do NOT
install SmartSuite or Organizer on the Vista 64-bit version. >>
