Error Parsing Start Time

Post by VMUser » Wed Jan 25, 2012 2:37 pm

I wanted to set an "End Time" for an event of 24:00 but it doesn't accept it. I'm getting an error message:
Error Parsing Start Time

An error occured parsing the specified time. The time string was 24:00.

A valid format would be 20:31
But "24:00" IS a valid time string (at least here in Germany).

Try 23:59 instead. VueMinder sees 24:00 as being invalid because it's the start of the next day. 23:59:59.999999... is the maximum time-of-day, at least to computers.

I am not familiar with 'Parsing', yet I have the same problem. What can I do?

Hi KyleCal, welcome to the forums. VueMinder "parses" the start time value that is input by the user. Basically, this just means that some code reads the text that was entered and tries to figure out how to convert that text into a time value.

If you're getting an error about the time value not being parsed, that means there's something in the text that VueMinder can't figure out.

What's the exact message you're seeing? What happens when you pick a value from the drop-down list of time values? Also, are you using the latest version (9.0.3)?

I am using the latest version, and I want to create an all-day event, and repeat it every 2 weeks.

Hi KyleCal, I understand you're seeing a problem with creating an all-day event, but can you tell me the exact error message you're getting?

The reason I ask is because this message should show what time or date text is being entered. From that, I might be able to determine what is causing the parsing issue.

Also, what country are you in, or what regional format settings have you configured Windows to use (in the Control Panel)? I'll also need that information when I try to duplicate the problem using your same regional settings.

It's working now. There was some kind of error with my computer's calendar settings.
