    Hi,

    I have an odd problem. I have reminders set up on my events in Outlook 2010. But 95%+ of the time the reminders, which should come 15 minutes before the event, will come hours, or even days, after the event has transpired. On rare occasion the reminder comes when it's supposed to.

    I work-around the problem by using iCal, but I was wondering if anyone else had seen something like this and if there's a way to fix it.

    I'm running Windows 7 on Parallels 7.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Outlook reminder problems

    I'm having the same problem - Parallels 7 running Windows 7 and Office 2010, and calendar reminders in Outlook don't work correctly 95% of the time. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Any information from Parallels or any other testing performed with Fusion, etc?

    I still have this issue, years later. Historically, I haven't had a lot of meetings, so it hasn't been that much of an issue. More recently it has been an issue for me and I'm looking to solve the problem. Has anyone ever found a fix for this issue?
    For me, I experience the same symptoms as the first post above - i see no reminders for quite a long time, then after a few days with Windows running (except when the lid of my MacBook Pro closes), maybe I'll see a popup that shows I'm overdue for a few meetings, by days.
    I've upgraded both OSx, Parallels, Windows 10, and Office over the years (starting in Aug 2013) but the problem persists.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
