I do not know why this program has not got a better rating. I think it is quite good. Easy to download and install nice to use and simle to operate.

It's a nice little piece of software but not something I could use every day. It would have been nice, like another user mentioned if it'd change it's appearance to fit the seasons OR if it'd had given us a choice to use a "standard" theme.

That being said, it runs fast on my not so modern Windows 7 laptop. The graphics are nice (not some hack job) and it looks like it's overall user friendly which is the most important thing.

But again, the theme really brings down points on this. It's nice for Halloween but once Halloween is over I'd like to be able to see a standard design.

There are better alternatives out there both paid and free.

I freakin' like it. It's cute, and it has a better ways to display the calendar than Outlook. I like the Horizontal timelines. It's perfect!

Definitly a keeper. I will use this calendar instead of Outlook.

101 thumbs up and 480 thumbs down yet most of the comments seem positive... What's wrong with the program that it got so many thumbs down?

I think some people don't get the simple fact that it's clearly geared to the "darker" genre of users. Those who are or like Goth and Halloween a little more than others, like myself. I think it's cool, just very curious why so many people gave it a thumbs down.

#9: "Meh. While it’scute, I really can’t see it being something I would use everyday. Maybe if they offered a calendar the design of which changed with the season to an appropriate holiday theme…"

FWIW, while I do agree, I get the impression it's something they keep current & apply fresh cobwebs to :-) once a year. Maybe if enough GOTD folks chimed in they'd expand it to include skin or theme support of some kind?

Dark Calendar is a simple, easy to use calendar app with more cute than scary Halloween-type graphics elements... this is about seaonal fun rather than something for Goth fans to use year-round. It uses the Firebird SQL database [firebirdsql.org], Msxml2, & with the Ofc 2007 style ribbon, requires Gdiplus.dll [from Microsoft -- you probably already have it]. From the included Help & Readme.txt files it seems it's designed to be a painless Halloween substitute for Outlook 2007, which you'd presumably go back to come November 1st -- you can also sync it to Outlook so you don't have to abandon those tasks that only Outlook can manage. According to those 2 files it also supports Windows versions all the way back to win95. It isn't terribly efficient about using your PC's/laptop's resources, but does that really matter for just a couple of weeks [or in this case 1 weekend] out of the year?... besides, if you were that concerned about practicality you wouldn't be using a calender app with bats & pumpkins on it anyway. ;-)

Installation creates the program's folder with 23 files, 4 folders taking up ~30 MB -- you also get Start Menu shortcuts plus one on the Desktop. In the registry there aren't many changes -- [for those who might want to remove all traces next week...] besides an uninstall key ["Dark Calendar"], an entry's added to HKCU\ASProtect\ SpecData "3EF217B70107D395", along with a new key for HKCU\Software\FIBC_Software.

I downloaded dark calendar and installed it on my machine. Then I went to a date to add an event. I clicked on add event and nothing happened. Also I noticed it was grayed out. Went to help to adding event and it said to do exactly what I was doing. Tried several times and same thing happened. So finally I said to myself too complicated to much to bother with and uninstalled the program.

Gives me some error when attempting to import my contacts from Outlook. I tried exporting the from Outlook as text, csv, and Excel. Not sure what format it wants them in. The help file is useless. While fun to have for Halloween, I'll likely remove it come Mon. Thx GOTD.

Installs easy and quick. registration is simple.
the interface im in love with.I use Zune desktop theme(black and orange) for windows xp pro and gradient icool for fire fox(black and blue) this fits perfectly.

Runs smooth
process lasso rates it at 6.16% cpu avg usage.
It takes up 28.95MB of space after install with 20 registry entries.
I like how the date sits in the tray.
so far so good. scanning with Malware bytes right now and..........scan done. it is clean.
I think I will keep this one, I like the look and how it runs.
try it your self before giving thumbs down.
Thanks GOTD and Binary House Software this will be an interesting program to explore.

Under the options for Holiday Editor - give the option for Reoccurring holidays. While you list extensive holidays for several countries, someone may want to add peoples birthday's, anniversaries or other reoccurring reminders.

Installed/ativated just fine on Windows 7 32-bit. Works fine.

Bad - Only imports from Outlook.
Bad - pop-up add event window uses blue on black text as its default that is almost invisible to see and I can't read what it says.

Good - layout is similar to Outlook.
Good - uncluttered appearance - it is just a calendar, so there are no newsfeeds/email/contact lists taking up space.

Definitely not worth $29.95 though. Again, its just a calendar.

Looks like great fun!
That's the Toccata And Fugue In D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, in case you were wondering. (At their site.)
Well.. an extended cycling sample.
Plus added eerie sounds.
