ICal hangs while opening an existing event

I am having so much trouble with iCal on my MacBook 2007 running Lion 10.7.1.
When I try to open an existing event to edit, everything is frozen for 15 to 20 seconds. I know that's not a long time in the big picture of things, but still, it's quite annoying.
I have seen 2 different Geniuses at the Apple Store and both were stumped.
Is it just because my computer is so old? It's barely over the edge of qualifying to use Lion.
Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks very much.

OK. I exported the iCal archive and then re-imported it. Now it is freezing and I had to force quit.
I have other things I need to attend to now. I'll try again.
I wonder if my computer is just too old.

  • DVD SP 2.05 hangs while opening file

    DVD Studio Pro 2.0.5 hangs while opening a project file that until recently worked fine.
    The "hang" seems to accur while DVD SP is opening the project's menus. The dialog box "Loading Project" appears and progresses until it reaches "Loading Menus", then it hangs until I click "Cancel", then DVD SP crashes.
    I trashed DVD SP's prefs, no success. I even tried to move the project's menu files offline, without success - DVD SP even hangs when the referenced assets are not available to it. All project files that are variations of the main file also hang, all at the same time. I don't think the project files are corrupted, more likely something wrong with DVD SP? Any ideas? Reinstall? I'm a little worried about the project files - lots of work is at stake...

    Previously when this has happened for folks it has been related to font management. If you have turned off a font that DVDSP uses as a default for the menus then it won't be able to create the menu when it loads. The solution is to turn on the fonts again.
    Are you using font management software?

  • Encore and Premiere CS3 hanging while opening - EMERGENCY

    I try opening Premiere or Encore on my Mac they just hang while opening ANY project file that is dated before today. I can make a new project, save it and open it...but any project made before today freezes both programs. They start loading the project and then it just hangs, with the colored wheel staying on screen until Force Quit is used. I have months of work done on this project and am literally 2-3 days away from completion, and backup projects won`t load either.  I need some serious help on getting this resolved before I lose my mind and seriously contemplate quitting film altogether.
    I have 3 gigs of ram, 2 x 2.66 Ghz dual core Intel xeon and CS3 

    One thing to try... create a new project and then import the old project into the new project
    Other than that... this is for the Windoze world, but some of the steps may help

  • ICal Yosemite-can not edit existing events?

    I have created events in the new iCal application.  How to change an existing event?  I double clicked and the pop-up will not allow me to change anything??

    Hello slowsf,
    You should be able to select the text and start typing to change the name. If you want to change the time, you can drag the time up or down in the calendar or just start typing the time on the start and end time. Take a look at the articles below for more information on how to change the event and what possibly could be the issue if you cannot edit it. 
    Create or delete events

  • Error while opening an existing report

    Hi all,
    I'm working with Report Builder on Windows XP.
    My XP user account has no administration capbilities and when I run reports builder I get the following errors:
    REP-0118: Unable to create temporary filethen as soon as i try to open an existing jsp report file I get the following
    REP-0069: Internal error
    REP-0: Row : n 1, <% @ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/lib/reports_tld.jar" prefix="rw" %>
    Error: java.io.FileNotFoundException: c:\docume~1\admini~1\impost~1\temp\docroot\WEB-INF\lib\reports_tld.jar (Access denied)This is (as I guess) because Reports Builder tries to write the temporary files in the administrator's "documents and settings" folder. Where should I specify a different path for my user?

    test to set REPORTS_TMP before calling rwbuilder.exe :
    set REPORTS_TMP=C:\tmp

  • ICal crashes while opening

    I've read all the other posts about iCal crashing when opened and none of the fixes have worked for me. HelvelticaNeue.dfont is in the right place, moving the plist file had no effect, all of my software is up to date, iCal doesn't even open so I can't select preferences or anything like that. I'm in the process of backing up all my files so that I can reinstall the operating system but that idea makes me nervous because I run my business from this computer and I can't afford to loose anything.
    When iCal stopped working I had earlier encountered a problem with my trash and applications folder. The trash was "mirroring" the contents of my application folder and I deleted half of my apps. I copied the deleted apps from my external hard drive to my computer and everything is working fine except iCal which was NOT one of the apps that was deleted. However a utility or library file may have been affected. Also, my Palm smartphone will not sync which I suspect is a related issue.
    One thing to note is that the alarms I had previously scheduled do pop on time.
    I'm going mental without my schedule. I need a solution ASAP!

    I see a similar post from July 30, 2007. "iCal quits at the instant when an alarm is supposed to sound"
    We have the same problem with one of our laptops at school. We are all using iCal this year, some on eMacs some on laptops. One of our teachers uses iCal extensively and her alarms trigger iCal to crash every time. We followed all the ideas on the forum including reloading iCal through OS Reinstall but her iCal still crashes. iCal ran seamlessly on her eMac(PowerPC) but it crashes every time on her MacBook(Intel-based).
    Does anyone know if the code for the alarms is handled differently by the different processors?

  • RoboHelp 10 - Hanging While Opening as User on Windows 7

    OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64
    Product: RoboHelp 10
    I have setup the 64bit install of Robohelp using the application manager. After a full install, when a user trys to open Robohelp is just hangs at "intializing user data". If I right click and "Run as Administrator" and enter credentials to run as a local Administrator, it works fine. We can not have the users do this.
    Is there something that is a known issue or something I am missing?

    Are you perhaps confusing what the users of the Output created by RoboHelp will need to do with the users of the RoboHelp HTML application will need to do?
    While I'm unaware of RoboHelp needing to be run as an Admin to use the editing environment, there should be no need for this to happen by average users of the output created by RoboHelp.

  • Safari hangs while opening specific page

    So when I try to open one specific page (which is working because I could open it with Google Chrome) safari hangs in the middle of the blue bar and I can't open any other pages, it's like the internet had stopped working
    I already tried to reset it, deleted the files in the hidden library, disable plugins etc
    any ideias? Thanks
    PS: I'm using Safari 6.0.2 and Mountain Lion 10.8.2

    Please read this whole message before doing anything. This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it. Step 1 The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account. Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. For instructions, launch the System Preferences application, select Help from the menu bar, and enter “Set up guest users” (without the quotes) in the search box. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.” While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin. Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem? After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it. *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing. Step 2 The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode* and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows: 
    Shut down your computer, wait 30 seconds, and then hold down the shift key while pressing the power button.
    When you see the gray Apple logo, release the shift key.
    If you are prompted to log in, type your password, and then hold down the shift key again as you click Log in.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    *Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of steps 1 and 2.

  • Project Pro hangs while opening a schedule from Project 2010 server.

    We have an issue with opening a schedule from Project server 2010. Project client is not responding. when we try to open schedule in PWA. I am getting unable to open file do you want to open in default view. No matter which view I choose keep getting the
    same error. The only view i can see resource view however it will not let me edit. I did notice Project Manager had entered resource names first, last name format which do not exist in our resource pool.  We can open other schedule except this particular
    Thank you

    Obviously, my first thoughts are that this plan is corrupted in some fashion. Entering Resource names differentluy should not cause this issue, they will just not be recognized as Enterprise Resources by the system.
    Are you experiencing the issue if you try to open the schedule from PWA? If you are able to open from PWA, try publishing it from PWA and see if it throws any errors.
    Also, how about trying it from a different machine?
    And finally, it might be worthwhile to check if you have the latest Client Update for Project installed (or atleast matching with the server).
    If none fof these work,
    a) you could try restoring it from Archive Database (assuming you have a daily schedule backup running)
    b) If you are able to open it from another machine, you could use the "Save for sharing" feature to try and resolve any corruption with the schedule itself.

  • MacBook Pro Retina hangs while opening mounted share or USB drive

    I have a Macbook Pro Retina that I just updated to 10.8.2 over the past weekend.  Now, when I try to open a mounted SMB share or USB drive, the system hangs completely!  I had the system set to auto-reconnect my network shares, so when this started happening the system would hang right after login.  I was able to get in with Safe Boot and disable the auto-connect, so at least I can work now, but not being able to use a flash drive is really getting on my nerves.  Any ideas?

    I just ran a few tests to confirm my suspicion that this is a sleep problem for me and found that my rMBP will restart as soon as it has entered the sleep cycle.  Set it to auto sleep after 10 minutes and it will restart at 10 minutes, set it to sleep at 3 minutes and it will restart at 3 minutes.  Command it to sleep and it will restart.
    So for me at least there is a workaround and that is to set sleep to "never".  The display still sleeps but my mac keeps running.  So that's not a solution but it is a workaround, and if I want it to shutdown and not restart I either hold the powerbutton or take off the power cable and choose shut down from the dropdown menu (it won't restart on battery power, it'll just shut down).
    I hope that helps someone else!  And I hope it helps the engineers to diagnose and actually solve the very long running problem for us all..

  • ICal quits while opening

    Since yesterday, both iCal and Safari have been quitting as I have been trying to open them. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it. I've checked for updates, but there are none available.
    Please help, I'm lost without my iCal

    I am having a similar problem. iCal will run for 1 to 3 min, then "quit unexpectedly". Started about the same time I did software update last week. iCal seems to run OK in a second acct on the same machine. This is a big problem for me - please help.
    Troubleshooting so far: I did the font checks (HelveticaNeue is enabled & I resolved all duplicate fonts and checked for corrupted fonts w/Fontbook, all essential system fonts are there). I ran Preferential Treatment and got rid of the one preference that showed a problem (not iCal). I ran Onyx to reset almost everything and to check & repair permissions.
    Below is the initial part of several pages of crash log. I have the rest saved if it would be helpful I'll post it.

  • Why does Indesign CC hang while opening files?

    iMac running OSX Yosemite, version 10.10.3. Files take forever to open and I have to force quit and reopen. Everything is updated to latest version, Indesign CC and Suitcase Fusion 5. Could the problem be with Suitcase auto activation?

    SF5 is not supported under Yosemite so yes, that could well be the issue.

  • Workaround: RH7 hangs when opening topics

    Hi all,
    I didn't turn up any threads about this particular workaround
    while searching the forums, so I wanted to post this in case other
    RH7 users are having the problem I was having.
    I was experiencing hangs and crashes while opening topics. I
    would double-click a topic, get the hourglass icon on my mouse
    pointer, and then RH7 would become totally unresponsive, forcing me
    to kill the program.
    The problem did not happen with all topics, nor did it always
    happen with the same topics, which made it tough to diagnose.
    However, I stumbled upon a workaround. When RH7 hangs while
    opening a topic, I can get it to "unhang" simply by closing Outlook
    2007, which I usually have open at the same time. I just close
    Outlook, wait a few seconds, and the topic opens in RH7 after a few
    seconds. I then open Outlook again.
    There seems to be some sort of conflict between these two
    apps, though I have no idea what it could be. In any case, this
    workaround has saved me lots of hair pulling!

    I am working directly on the PC to which RH is installed, and
    I am not using source control.
    I tried the sample projects and had no problems opening
    topics, though there are also times when I have no problems opening
    topics in my own project (as I mentioned, the bad behavior doesn't
    happen consistently).
    Maybe certain characteristics of my project are contributing
    to the problem. The project was converted from RoboHelp X5, for one
    thing. It's also large (>50MB), and the topics are all in one
    directory instead of being organized into subdirectories (something
    I'm hoping to remedy when I have time; I inhereited the project
    only recently).
    Still, I don't see how any of those issues would be overcome
    simply by closing Outlook.
    It's pretty odd.
