Schedule+ 95 & WFW

My company recently began to convert our Windows for Workgroups 3.11 network over to Win95.  I have converted two of the eight computers in my office.  Everything seems to be working fine except the ability of existing WFW computers to see the new Schedules on the Win 95 computers. As two of the computers in the office cannot be loaded w/ Win95 because of memory limitations, it is necessary for them to see the Win
95 Schedules.  The Win95 computers can open the WFW Schedules without any problem.

Are the new Schedule+ 7.0 file formats in Win95 downward compatible w/WFW 3.11?

Any suggestions?  Am I missing something?

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Gary Kambic

We had the same problem last year. Our solution was to use the old Win3x schedule plus which seemed to work fine with both Win3x and Win95 machines. We were using a Novell network.

Microsoft doesn't like to promote problems with its software, so it's hard to find info on this kind of problem.

Other solutions are to watch for upgrades and bug fixes, or get some more computers. I think Win95 is really good stuff; most users like it by the end of the day.
