Thanks for the tutorial. I managed to find a link to download/extract wincalc.exe update from MS's site (sorry, forgot URL) for x64.

A comment:

The WinCalcEdit registry file includes some non-related entries. All you need in the top section are the lines:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications]
"Windows Calendar"="Software\\Clients\\Calendar\\Windows Calendar\\Capabilities"
If you open up the .reg file in Notepad, you can/should delete all these extra lines in the top section:
Code:
"Windows Address Book"="Software\\Clients\\Contacts\\Address Book\\Capabilities"
"Internet Explorer"="SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Capabilities"
"Windows Mail (News)"="Software\\Clients\\News\\Windows Mail\\Capabilities"
"Windows Media Player"="Software\\Clients\\Media\\Windows Media Player\\Capabilities"
"Windows Photo Gallery Viewer"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows Photo Gallery\\Capabilities"
"Windows Media Center"="Software\\Clients\\Media\\Windows Media Center\\Capabilities"
"Windows Mail"="Software\\Clients\\Mail\\Windows Mail\\Capabilities"
"Firefox"="Software\\Clients\\StartMenuInternet\\FIREFOX.EXE\\Capabilities"
"OpenOffice.org 2.3"="SOFTWARE\\OpenOffice.org\\OpenOffice.org\\2.3\\Capabilities"
"Windows Search"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows Search\\Capabilities"
"Yahoo! Mail"="Software\\Clients\\Mail\\Yahoo! Mail\\Capabilities"
"QuickTime"="SOFTWARE\\Clients\\Media\\QuickTime\\Capabilities"
@=""
"iTunes"="Software\\Clients\\Media\\iTunes\\Capabilities"
"Google.PhotoViewer.3.0"="SOFTWARE\\Google\\Picasa\\Photo Viewer\\Capabilities"

(Sorry, can't edit my previous post ...)

Here is the Vista update pack to get wincalc.exe, both x86 and x64 versions:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/938194/

Once downloaded, you need to use command line to extract the files inside.
> expand -F:* 938194.msu C:\target_dir
(where 9381984.msu is the filename of what you just downloaded and C:\target_dir is whatever directory you want to extract the files to)
You will then end up with a .cab file.
> expand -F:* 938194.cab C:\target_dir

You'll end up with a whole bunch of directories, and inside a few of them are wincalc.exe. I have no idea what the difference between them are. I just grabbed the first one I saw, which was in the top AMDX64 directory.

I did everything correctly. But I cannot get the stupid button in win mail to work. I did run the downloaded zip file program. It did change the registry. I did reboot the computer? Any ideas?

@ krutzy
Hello krutzy,
I never had installed or used Calendar before, never had a reason or desire, but I saw no one was answering you except for two weeks ago in that other post, so I had a moment to help and so I quickly transferred the files (and like you I did not even take the time do step 3 yet either and so something else may not work right? (not sure) for that feature so remember that) ..but anyway within 2 minutes on Win7 x64 I opened WinMail and went to the top tab of Tools> Windows Calendar, clicked it, and it opened up immediately. Here's a Screenshot of that.
I also tried the same thing on Win10 x64 and that WinMail Calendar tab worked there as well too.
(fwiw, I used the file attachment from Post #35, and of course you would use the correct folder x86 or x64 to match your OS's bit)

So it's something you are not doing right.
I just tried a few different things and I can reproduce what you have in Win7 x64 too, and so my guess is maybe you put the Windows Calendar folder/files into the "Program Files x86" folder, but they don't go there, you need to put them in the (screenshot) "Program Files" folder for the WinMail calendar button to work.

@ wyhiwyg
fwiw, you thought you were giving the link to extract the updated wincalc.exe, however it's not an updated version at all and quite the opposite, what you link is an older version 6/26/2007 v6.0.6000.16513, and the files in post #35 are actually newer versions 1/20/2008 v6.0.6001.18000

Thank you! I had it in the "Program Files x(86)" folder, I swear I read that is where it was suppose to go, old age. So all I did was move the folder to the "Program Files" and it works perfectly. You made my day!

Yes, you're right. Thanks.

It is an updated version, but not the latest/last version.
