ical crashes repeatedly. Each time a message flashes "restore windows." If I click on it fast enough, ical will stay open. Any fix for this. I recently added an ipad to my system. ical on my mac and on my ipad are synched to my Google calendar.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), ical crashing

    Hi,

     

    Try moving the folder ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.iCal.savedState (where ~ is your user's Home folder).

     

    Best wishes

    Hi Ben,

     

    Move it to your Desktop for now.

    Hi Ben,

     

    In the folder com.apple.iCal.savedState I have:

     

    data.data
    window_1.data
    window_2.data
    windows.plist
    

     

     

    Is that what you mean?

    iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    Hi Ben,

     

    Lion has hidden the Library folder. See: http://www.macworld.com/article/161156/2011/07/view_library_folder_in_lion.html

     

    Having said that I'm not sure what the library.xml is.

    Hi Ben,

     

    I have exactly the same problem. Moving the folder John mentioned did not help. I wonder if there are more people with the same issue.

    I've been having the same problem lately. Been reading discussions on the matter through searches. I've discovered that the dock widget for iCal relates to the previous version of iCal and that's where the conflict arises. By deleting the widget and adding a new one (by copying/dragging from the apps folder that has latest version of iCal) then this solves the problem.

    I often use the dock to open iCal and now the problem has gone for me. So far so good.

    EDIT. I take all that back. Just tried opening iCal from the dock and it's crashing again. So ignore my previous post as it's a load of baloney. Sorry guys. I'm no more the wiser now.

    Same here, OS 10.7.2, iCal 5.0.1; keeps crashing when updating shared calendars in my gMail. Also, deleting items from iCal don't carry accross to gMail calendars (when I manage to keep iCal open long enough).
