Help Re-installing Ical

I am having problems installing Ical. It came with my mac pre-installed but when i removed it because of issues, it no longer will let me install it from the package i got from Apple.com. When i try to install the package it proceeds to install and then says please try again later. If anybody can help me out or give me any advice that would be nice.

Can you tell us the exact error message you get? Also, have you tried restoring it with the "software restore" cd that came with your computer?

I don't really get an error message, when i open the package installer i click install, insert my password, then it proceeds to install and then it just stops and says try again later. and as for the cd, don't i have to reinstall os x to use the restore cd? i wasn't exactly sure.

If it's the software restore, there should be a section where you have the option to customize the install. Doing that, you can choose how much gets reinstalled.

As for the package installer: "says try again later" <- That's the part that an exact quote from would be helpful.

There is a little app called Pacifist that might help you out. It lets you open the installer package to pick certain apps you want to reinstall.

Thanks so much for that link, I had deleted iCal to free up some disk space but needed it back!

Yup download Pacifist from VersionTracker.

You can use the demo just fine.

After installing Pacifist, you load your OSX disc and it allows you to extract
any application you need so you can re-install just that application.

Donate if you can to a very helpful developer who deserves our support.
