XCLN: Schedule+ Always Prompts for Shared Schedule Password

PSS ID Number: 170587

Article Last Modified on 9/11/1999

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Schedule+ 7.5

This article was previously published under Q170587


If you migrate an MSMail account to Microsoft Exchange using the MSMail Migration Wizard, you may receive the following message when you start Schedule+:

Please type the password for your shared schedule Password

If you enter the correct password, Schedule+ opens and the migrated information is available; however, there are two side effects:

  • When you click Change Password on the Tools menu, no Old Password box is displayed. Only the New Password and Verify New Password boxes appear. Once you enter a new password, the proper dialog box appears.
  • Regardless of the new password you set, Schedule+ continues to prompt for the shared schedule password. This password remains the one that existed before you migrated the MSMail account.


This problem occurs when you follow these steps:

  1. Run Schedule+ 1.0 against a user's MSMail account.
  2. Run Schedule+ 7.5 against the same MSMail account.
  3. Migrate that user to Microsoft Exchange with the MSMail Migration Wizard.


To work around this problem, follow these steps in Schedule+:

  1. On the File menu, point to Export, and then click Schedule+ Interchange.
  2. Enter the file name and click OK to export all Schedule+ data.
  3. On the File menu, click Exit and Log Off to quit Schedule+.
  4. In Microsoft Explorer, press and hold CTRL+SHIFT while you double-click the Schedule+ icon.

A dialog box confirms that you want to clear your schedule data.

  1. Click Yes to continue.

If you are prompted for the profile, click the appropriate profile and click OK.

Schedule+ starts with a new local and server schedule.

  1. On the File menu, point to Import, and then click Schedule+ Interchange.
  2. Locate the Schedule+ export file saved in step 1. Click to select the file, and then click Open.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Schedule+ for Windows. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
