    Any good, but SIMPLE reminder software in 64 bits?


    The quite old and FREE reminder tool "Remind Me!", from PC-Magic Software Inc. (Home of PC-Magic Software: Magic Folders, CD-Lock, My Spelling Words and more) shows "Days to Event", "Event Date, "Lead Time", and "Code".
    - “Code” to which you can add several conditions for every new event "How many days in advance do you wish to be notified?”.
    - “Event Dates”. where you can use the "Actual Date" for every event, such as Feb.23, the 15th of every month, the last day in September...
    - “Day of Week”. Every Thursday; the 4th Wednesday in April; the 2nd Friday of each month…
    - “Projected”: 90 days from today…
    I am not sure, but I use this fantastic free reminder for quite a long time, maybe for the last 20 years.
    It is small, simple, not sophisticated, but it works. It put it to start with Windows, and its window is the one that I look first, every morning.
    Now that I upgraded to Win8.1(64bits) from Win7(32bits), it doesn’t work anymore.
    Are there good replacements for this fabulous reminder software that runs in 64 bits environment?
    Any help will be welcome.
    Cheers,
    Flores

    P.S.: The other softwares by PC-Magic, shown in blue, above, where not added by me.

    You could look on AlternativeTo

    Or you might see something you like here:
    Best Free Reminder and To-Do Program

    It looks like a 16 bit program. You may be able to get it to run using DosBox.

    32bit software works just fine in a 64bit operating system. So this one must be 16bit, or at least have a 16bit installer.

    If you go to the page it talks about having files in C:\Windows\System with no "32" on the end. That should tell us something.

    Hello Flores,

    If you like, the included modern Calendar app in Windows 8 is not bad for this.

    Hello pparks1,

    You are right. Remind Me! is 16bit.

    Changing subject: You say I can use my 32bits Office software on my new 64 bit system?
    I lost my Office 64 bit DVD when I moved from my home town.

    Thanks and regards,

    Hello Brink,

    To tell you the truth I'm not using my new DELL 64 bits machine as I lost my Office 64bits DVD when I moved from Rio de Janeiro.
    So I'm using my old DELL 32 bits system while trying to find my 64 bits Office DVD.
    I'll try the 8.1 Calendar as I get acquainted litle by little with Win8.1.

    Many thanks,

    Regards,
