like the same problem.
The Scrum software seems to use the MS Calendar 10.0 OCX control,
which seems to normally be installed by Access. I suspect most
people who have Excel also have Access by way of installing the
Office suite. But I had picked up an Office version for Students
and Teachers that did not include Access and thus this OCX. So,
in the end, I had to locate and download the OCX control, install
and register it, and then everything worked fine. I don't recall
where I found the OCX, but I think I just Googled for "MS Calendar
OCX Control" and found a place to download it.
