RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Dear oak1day,
See the main Sdk99 support page at (remove gaps in address and then paste into browser):

http://techsupp.starfish.com/cgi-bin/discontinued.cfg/
php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_sid=bt8Uxkhg&p
_lva=&p_li=&p_page=1&p_prod_lvl1=34&p_prod_
lvl2=5&p_cat_lvl1=%7Eany%7E&p_search_text=&p
_new_search=1&p_search_type=3&p_sort_by=dflt

Also there is a display problem with Sdk99 Calendar display see the following address (remove gaps):

http://techsupp.starfish.com/cgi-bin/discontinued.cfg/
php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_sid=bt8Uxkhg&p

Hi James33 Thanks for answering. When I try to access either of those pages, I get an access forbidden message when I try to access either of these addresses...something about "Forbidden You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/discontinued.cfg on this server" from Apache/1.3.12 Server at Techsupp.starfish.com Port 80

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Dear oak1day,
I think you may have missed the spaces I put in the address,
they have to be in there or the Tek-Tips page gets very wide to accommodate them and so is hard to read without scrolling sideways.
If you copy the entire address and paste it into Notepad then with the Cursor at the beginning of the text you press Ctrl+Right arrow and then each time the cursor jumps to the next space you press delete once...
Then when you have removed all the spaces (i.e. you select all the address and paste it into your address bar), you should get to the webpages I have mentioned.
What I imagine is happening at the moment is that the Request/Page address you are demanding of the server includes a space, and the server is responding as it should;
by denying you access.
I have tried it again just now and even though I am a registered member it is not including that information, because if it were, it would be in the address as my ID and not 'enduser' as is the case.
Good Luck

Regards Jim

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Dear N.,
Can you see the Folder Userdata?
With Sidekick open, go to File|Open and navigate to the Userdata folder and you should see the files.
Did you save them through Backup & Restore with Sidekick?

Which files can you not see?
Cardfile, Calendar, etc please be more specific.
HTH

Regards Jim

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Dear N.,
Sorry I should have been more specific myself, where I said the following I meant the backed up Userdata folder:

With Sidekick open, go to File|Open and navigate to the Userdata folder

How did you back up the Data?

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Four questions
What is the latest version of Sidekick?
Does it work with Windows 2000?
Can I transfer my userdata files?
Can I get it online?

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

Dear oak1day,

The latest version of SDK is SDK99 but it doesn't have the autodialer or Contact logs
click below your post on the link that looks like this:

Check out the FAQ
area for this forum!


To see where you can get SDK98 + the Year 2000 Patch or SDK99.

Your mileage may vary, but a good few people find that SDK98 and SDK99 work with Win2000 and WinXP
See posts relating to this topic by using Advanced search at the top of the page as well.

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

I'm using sidekick 99 on win 2000. The daily tasks list does not forward the undone tasks to the next day. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a fix?

Thanks,
Craigum

RE: Sidekick 99 to Windows 2000

This last question is answered in another thread:

The links above for the Starfish site are not correct as Starfish have updated their Site and old links do not work, in future check out the FAQ area of this Forum for current Starfish Links.
