RE: need a copy of sidekick99

Dear eaglefly,

For a Copy of SDK99 see FAQ807-1313

See the posts on this forum as regards SDK98 and SDK99 with Win2000 and WinXP it seems to work ok in a lot of cases
no worse than OfficeXP anyway

RE: need a copy of sidekick99

I bought my copy of SK99 on eBay.  There always seems to be one or two copies for aution there.

RE: need a copy of sidekick99

I got my copy through eBay at a really reasonable price.  We have multiple sustems in our household, both laptops (Thinkpads) and desktops.  All have W2K Pro installed and also SK99.  The only problem we had was with the install on one desktop where it said there was a previous version that needed to be uninstalled.  There was a post on the Starfish site that solved the problem.  Sidekick99 is running great on all four systems now.  (Now we need a way to access a common data base or sync the data beyween the various computers.

RE: need a copy of sidekick99

Dear eaglefly,
Sidekick was never intended to be installed as a network application.

Having said that If you get a copy of the program SecondCopy2000 from Here:

First Backup backup Backup all your Data (see Starfish site) Before you do any of the following:

You can then set profiles to back up Cardfiles/calendars/Write files etc from 1 computer on a network to another.
As long as the cardfile is not the active one on the recipient machine!!!
If you get any corruption in the display of the cardfile on the recipient machine CLOSE IT WITHOUT SAVING.
The other thing you can do is Merge cardfiles but the one that you wish to merge with the Open/Active one has to be closed!!!
In the case of Write files copy all 4 files including the Tmp file created whilst it is running.

If you can get a copy of Internet Sidekick from anywhere you can Synchronise any CardFile and I believe Calendar File across a network.

Hope this gives you some ideas, but as I said: BACKUP FIRST

Regards Jim

Hi again

Will Sidekick work with Windows ME?

Thanks again


RE: need a copy of sidekick99

Dear f1beamer,

Short answer is yes, but see the FAQ that describes the method of getting The patch to address Year 2000 issues.

RE: need a copy of sidekick99

Dear fastmover,
Well done it would never have occured to me to try to see that.
But I think the year is 2030...
I hadn't noticed that and it is the same in Sidekick95 and Sidekick98!
I remember a bit of info from somehere that mentioned a problem with Unix too at that time.
But I can't remember the actual problem, anyone else got the answer?
It's certainly a problem if your appointments go that far ahead and I don't want to dismiss it,
remember the Millenium minus one.

Well I hope the recompiling of Sidekick is complete by then!
Seriously though now that we know that is ahead, we must redouble our efforts to find a suitable replacement.

Regards Jim
