All my schedules went inactive today - on all pc's running Girder.
Is it because Girder does not recognize Feb 29th as a valid date?

Where can I go to fix this?

Sorry about that! I'm checking...

Ok found the bug fixed! Unzip the attached dll into the plugins directory and restart Girder. Let me know if that does the trick.

says file is password protected and it is looking for a password.

There is no password on that file. Checked with Windows 7 zip functionality... what application do you use to unzip?

I unzipped the file to the desktop; renamed the scheduler.dll ( original) to scheduleold.dll and then copied the new scheduler.dll file to the plugins directory. Restarted Girder. Got an error message that it had a duplicate file schedulerold.dll. However the scheduler is now accepting today so I guess all is well?

Thanks for the quick fix. Its amazing how we have come to rely on Girder waking us up, turning on the furnace, raising the blinds, turning on the lights and music. Woke up at 9.45 am instead of 6.45 am!!

I am using Windows 7 Home edition and unzipped your file with whatever showed up - extraction wizard.

rename the old file to scheduler.old (not .dll girder will try to load it every time it starts up! and it might load the wrong one).

Sorry about waking up late!

Sorry, does Girder 4 have the same issue / fix?
