schedule+ not seeing other network users

We are running a Win95 network with a Win NT 3.51 server.  Everything has been working fine until recently
someone's hard drive crashed and needed to be replcaed.  After re-installation, everything worked fine on the
repaired pc except schedule plus....

The pc has been reconnected to the original workgroup postoffice.  Mail works fine and the individual when
logged in can see all users and receive and send mail from all users. In setting up Schedule plus, however, she
cannot see anyone else on the network, so planning meetings and viewing others schedules (with appropriate
permission) doesn't work.  Also when trying to set her permissions under tools/options, the set access
permission tab is greyed out.  All this happens if you (i) create a new local schedule; or (ii) use the old server
"*00008.scd" file in the cal directory of WGPO.  I have also tried removing and reinstalling scheduler with no fix to
the problem...

I have also removed and reinstalled this user using network mailbox administrator...still doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong....I don't seem to be able to find any other possible options to play with....

Any suggestions.....of course this user is the group secretary and so our entire scheduling has become a
nightmare of course!!!

Server is definitely functioning okay.  Try re-installing the updated (true 32bit) version of Win95.

Try importing the .scd file into another users .scd file to test validity of the file.

you cannot import a *.scd file, import in Schedule only allows for *.sch or *.sc2 files.

Your comment about installing updated win95 is nearer the mark, altho' confusing.  Did you mean reinstall win95 latest updates or just schedule plus?  I have since discovered that we had updated the other workstations "Windows Messaging" awhile ago with "exupdusa.exe" from Microsoft.  It seems that the fresh install of Schedule plus 7.0 from the win95 cd's wasn't compatible with the rest of the network.  After running exupdusa.exe everything worked fine.

Thanks for your help!
