Specs: Windows XP
Is AnyTime Organizer Deluxe Version 12 good
for calendaring, synching, etc.?
Also, I read a buyer's review which said that
this program wipes out your existing Outlook data
when you load the software onto your
computer. Is that true of this version 12?
I currently have a Windows XP and use Microsoft Outlook and a Blackberry, but will soon buy a new laptop with latest Windows. I will want to continue using this AnyTime Organizer on my new laptop if it's good.

I don't know whether AnyTime Organizer wipes your Outlook data, but I'd suggest taking a look at VueMinder Calendar Pro. It's not bloated like AnyTime Organizer and has one of the best user interfaces I've ever seen. The developer must have had a very clear vision for what a good calendar program should look like, and executed that vision flawlessly.

The Pro version syncs very well with Outlook (and Google Calendar). There's also a Lite version that is free, but it doesn't sync with Outlook.

Thanks. The VueMinder website you referred me to looks good -
I'll take a closer look tomorrow. It seems to take only Windows
7--I have Windows XP right now on my desktop, but am probably
going to buy a laptop to replace desktop with Windows 7. I need
to figure out that transition and how to do it if the calendar
software doesn't work on both Windows versions. Thanks for
your advice.

VueMinder Calendar is compatible with XP and Vista too. I think it mentions that on the website, but isn't very clear.

Transferring data between computers can be done by backing up your data on one computer and then restoring that data on the other, using the backup/restore capability built into VueMinder. I've transferred data between computers several times, and it's all very seamless.

If your computers are going to be networked together, you can also share your calendars to your local network and transition the data that way (using Pro version only), but I think the backup/restore approach is probably easier, especially if you're not planning on continuing to use your old computer and don't need to share the data with other computers on your network.
