HRcalendar - Information


  • Versions released prior to 2011 are [not] compatible with Vista, Windows 7 or Server 2008.
  • The current version [is] compatible with Windows 7, and Server 2008.

  • HRcalendar will not currently function correctly on any operating system newer than 64bit Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008R2.

  • No versions are compatible with a Mac or Terminal Services or Citrix and are therefore not supported when so deployed.

  • HRcalendar standalone can only function on one computer. It cannot be installed on multiple computers or as a server-client.

  • HRcalendar Enterprise may be installed on a 2003 Server and Windows 7 client workstations.
  • HRcalendar utilizes Microsoft SQL Express 2005 for database purposes. SQL Express 2008 and up are not supported.

-- IMPORTANT-- HRcalendar is not now, nor will it ever be compatible with any operating system newer than Windows 7.

You would have to either move it to a Windows 7 computer or open up a Windows 7 Virtual Machine and install the software there. We do not support our software in a virtual environment but we know from experience that it will work that way. You may use the first link below to accomplish this whether you move to another Windows 7 computer or decide to put it on a VM.

Another alternative would be to switch for FREE to software called Gradience Attendance with Employee Recordkeeping, which is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10, and Windows Servers 2008, and 2012.

HRcalendar has no data export feature so you will not be able to move your HRcalendar data to Gradience. Please click the 2nd link below for more details on this option. 

If you do decide to switch over to Gradience, please call 800-999-9111 or email and give them your account number. 

Our apologies for the inconvenience.
