Here you can download the setup file for UK's Kalender. This version has language files for German, Dutch, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Polish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Turkish, Czech, Swedish and English. Holiday modules for Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium (French / Dutch), France, Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Poland, Israel, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Brazil, Columbia, Turkey, Portugal and Trinidad and Tobago are also included.
The package "Holidays.zip" contains all currently available holiday modules. Those are all modules mentioned above and additional modules that were added between updates. The list of additional modules will grow as users will send me their work.
Due to popular demand, there is also a zipped portable version without installer. After unpacking, this version can be run from anywhere (USB-stick etc.) without any special requirements. It is fully self-contained and does not use the registry of the host computer (at least as long as you leave this option unchecked).
Important notice for the no-install version!
If you plan to use the portable version as a permanently installed program, you'll need to change the configuration of the program, otherwise it might fail to load the event file on startup. After extracting the zip package, move the event file "dates.dat" from the calendar's "events" folder to a directory you have full write access to (e.g. "My Documents"). Then start UK's Kalender. You'll be prompted, that the calendar cannot open the event file. Simply ignore it. Under "Extras\Options..." on the "Program Start" tab, change the setting under "Startup file" to point to the previously moved event file. After changing the options, restart the calendar. There shouldn't be any error messages on startup anymore. The program can be used now just like the setup version. By the way: You can avoid this hassle by downloading the setup version.
Since version 2.1.0 it is possible to create holiday modules yourself. The required program "HolidayGenerator" can be downloaded here. This program doesn't require a setup and can be directly executed. It doesn't touch your system in any way and can easily be deleted if it is not required anymore. Admittedly, this program is not very intuitive and probably too complex for "normal users". On the other hand I have to say, some countries' holidays are not easily to put into rules. With the program comes a brief manual in English language. I can't give support for this program, therefore just a hint: With this program you can also open existing holiday modules in "*.hol" format and take a look how some problems can be solved. If you think you have created a really good holiday module, you can send it to me and I'll include it in the setup package.
If you enjoy experimenting, there is a new toy available for download, KalenderFeed. With this program you can feed text based event files into your existing Kalender network. These text based event files are the same as they are created by UK's Kalenders backup function. This file format can also easily be created with your own programs. So if you'd like to feed the latest football scores into you Kalender network and if you have some programming skills, you may want to take a look at KalenderFeed. The archive in the download section below contains some hints for the usage and a description of the file format of text based event files. Please be aware that I cannot give support for the usage of KalenderFeed. I highly recommend to try the usage on a test system first before using it in your working environment.
Ultra important hint for network users migrating from a version less than 2.2.0 to a version greater or equal 2.2.0!
From version 2.2.0 on, the synchronization of shared categories is supported. Unfortunately this leads to the paradoxical situation, that with the first start of the calendar all categories with enabled "Shared" flag will be deleted, as the shared event file does not hold any categories, yet. The easiest workaround is to replace the shared event file with a file of the same name but with no content, that means 0 bytes size. While replacing the event file, all instances of the calendar must be completely closed. After replacing the shared event file, you can start the calendar that has the shared categories you want to distribute to other clients. The calendar detects the 0 byte file and will start a fail safe routine that'll build up a new shared event file now including the shared categories. From then on, the calendar will behave as usual.
Please take also care to update all installations of UK's Kalender simultaneously to the new version!
Please make backup copies of your current event file before installing the new version! You should also take a look at the manual first, especially the installation instructions, available here!
