WinXP Systray Date Control, Online Image Editors

1) When logged in as a normal user on WinXP professional, how does one get quick access to the in-built calender? Double-clicking the time field in the systray pops up an error message.

2) http://www.myimager.com is an online image editor. This being more proof of concept that anything else, are there any advanced services available? Is it feasiable to make such a service production worthy?

But will it put red squiggly lines under misspelled words?

1) One fixes the error.
2) Don't know, but I doubt it.

Greg, the error is "You do not have proper privileges". So do you mean that I should fix the error by having all users as Admins or that MS fix the error, if indeed it is a bug and not a feature?

I don't think it's a bug or feature... it just is.  All double-clicking the time does is open the Date & Time Control Panel applet.  If you don't have privledges to open it through Control Panel, you shouldn't expect to have them there.

If you want a little pop-up calendar for all your non-admin users, then find a freeware app that can do it (for bonus points, code it yourself), and put it out there.

This should get you started: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22system+tray%22+quick+calendar
