    Hello,

    I have moved an applet that generates an appointment from GroupWise 2012 SP 3 on Windows XP to GroupWise 2014 R2 on Windows 7 SP 1. My applet contains this:

    ‘ Create a draft appointment message with no user interface
    Set objAppt = GroupWise.Account.Calendar.Messages.Add(“GW.MESSAGE.APPOINTMENT”, fgwDraft)

    ‘ Add a single recipient – myself
    Set objRecipient = objAppt.Recipients.Add(GroupWise.Account.Owner.EmailAddress,,0)
    With objAppt

    (snip the various settings like start date, end date, busy, alarm, etc.)

    End With

    Set objNewAppt = objAppt.Send

    Set objRecipient = Nothing
    Set objAppt = Nothing

    But when sent, there is no recipient. I even tried:

    Set objRecipient = objAppt.Recipients.Add(“my_email_address@my_domain_name”,,0)

    The items don’t appear in my main calendar, but they do appear in my Home view calendar. When I open them up there, the recipient’s list is empty, and if I put in my name, I can hit the Send button, and then the appointment goes on my main calendar.

    Do you have hints as to whether I’m doing something wrong? Or did I stumble into a bug?

    One more piece of information: I installed GroupWise 2014 R2 on a Windows XP machine, and installed Formativ Runtime, and copied my applet to that machine. Same symptoms as on the Windows 7 machine. So the commonality between both failure modes is the GroupWise Client. Build 123047 if it helps.

    Thank you for your post and for the code detail. In case the issue turns out to be related to the GroupWise 2014 R2 API behavior, as a pre-emptive step we’ve alerted the Micro Focus GroupWise team.

    We will try to replicate the issue in-house and post our results.

    Kind Regards,

    We’ve run tests and replicated the symptoms you describe. While adding recipients works if you create a mail message, the same approach fails for the GW.MESSAGE.APPOINTMENT class, whether it is Account.Calendar or Account.Mailbox.

    At this point we will need to wait for feedback from Micro Focus.

    Kind Regards,

    I am happy to report that I recently got an FTF patch for GroupWise 2014 R2, and it fixed this problem. The build number of the version I got is 123897.
