    Hi,

     

    Open Console (Applications > Utilities > Console.app). On the left in the Console you should find the Crash Reporter log for the iCal Crash. What does it say? You only need to post the first 40 lines or so.

     

    Best wishes

    Hi Tony,

     

    From the log it looks like the application is is crashing trying to sync with a CalDAV calendar (possibly iCloud).

     

    If you make a new User account on the computer. Does iCal open in the new user account?

    Hi John

     

    Thanks so much for your prompt reply.

     

    I am not sure what do you mean make a new User account.  Should I delete the current my existing iCal and re-add the new one?  I have no problem with iCal before, but it just happens in last few days.

     

    Should I delete the account and re-do it now?

     

     

    cheers

    Another clash, just after I post the last message, it is same as the few mins ago. 

     

    I think I am going to delete the account and re-do it now. 

  • 7. Re: iCal Closes Unexpectedly
    John Maisey Level 5 Level 5 (6,880 points)

    No, I mean go into System Preferences > 'Users & Groups' and make a new User account to log into the computer. Then log into that user account and try iCal there.

  • 8. Re: iCal Closes Unexpectedly
    tshum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I add the user and in iCal add the calednar back and I can see everything.  But not sure what next and will it clash again.

     

    What should I do now?  Should I delete the iCal and re-do in my old account?

  • 9. Re: iCal Closes Unexpectedly
    tshum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Oooop it seems like, it hasn't updated my appointments with Gmail yet.  is that causing the problem?

  • 10. Re: iCal Closes Unexpectedly
    tshum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I just delete the iCloud in my iCal.  Not sure iCloud does any good or bad for me.  But hope it works.  I give it a go.

     

    By the way, thank you so much for your help John.

     

    cheers

    Hi Tony,

     

    The next thing I would try is to reset your Sync Services. For instructions see "Mac OS X: Resetting the SyncServices folder".
