I have a new machine with xp pro but with my full licence win 2000 office suite brought over from my old scrapped system, I have the old drive as slave and sucessfully imported mail, settings adress book calender etc, but the outlook reminders does not work .
I used my MS Office premium disks to reload office and everything works fine except the reminders in outlook , are there any config files that will still be on my old drive that need bringing in/
the old drive is now set as a slave drive so it is easy to browse and transfer anything I need , but of course this may not be the solution.
Is there any chance the pop up blocker in xp sp2 is having an adverse affect /
The main thing is I get reminders to work again or I'll forget :-)
I have already done numerous searches and been through the options reset and applied the reminders interval closed down the computer , but that did not work.
The reminders are there but they just do not occur , (no pop up or sound, I have even redirected the sound to the default reminder wave but that did not have any effect so it would suggest the reminder pop-up window is just not being called at all
Anyone come across this before?
