ICal crashes as soon as I try to use it any functionality. Has been like this all day and I do not know what to do. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:

     

    Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

     

    In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

     

    If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the page that opens.

     

    Step 1

     

    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Post the messages from the time of the last crash, if any — the text, please, not a screenshot.

     

    Step 2

     

    Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. For privacy’s sake, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)

    MFRA,

     

    Try removing the com.apple.iCal.plist file from your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences Folder. Use the Finder>Go Menu>Depress the "Option" key>Library. Drag the .plist file to your desktop, and log out/in or restart and check iCal for functionality.

    Thank you.

    Linc Davis, pls see below what 3 diagnostic reports say. There are many and very very long. No idea if this helps to see the problem...

    That's step 1. Anything from step 2?

    Nothing starting with iCal. There is a report (pls see below a cut from it) but not sure is relevant...

    Disable syncing with the remote server. See if there's any improvement.

  • 7. Re: ical not crashes
    MFRA Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi, I've disabled sync, then went into iCal and saw that many events (e.g. birthdays) had "duplicated" 10 or 20 times! Guess that blocked the iCal. Don't know why that happened though. I have now deleted all "duplicates" and deleted all events in iCal older than 120 days. iCal seems to work on it's own. Let's see if it syncs with Outlook again.

    Thanks for your help!
