Local OfficeCalendar Server Installations:

The traditional and most convenient way to install/upgrade the OfficeCalendar Client when you install the local OfficeCalendar Server is outlined in the OfficeCalendar User's Guide and it involves browsing over your network back to the OfficeCalendar Server machine into the "C:\ocalclient" folder to obtain this file. This method automatically configures the OfficeCalendar Client to synchronize with the correct OfficeCalendar Server machine name on the network. Please refer to the link below to get to our "Documentation" page and locate the correct User Guide for your respective version. In the Table of Contents is a section for "Install the OfficeCalendar Client add-in for Outlook".

OfficeCalendar Documentation Page:

[OfficeCalendar versions 8.0 and higher also allow you the ability to email the OfficeCalendar Client installation instructions from within the OfficeCalendar Administration Console. If needed you can email those instructions again by logging into your Administration Console and going to "Advanced Features"--> "Email User Instructions".
