I am trying to publish calendars of staff at my office, I have created a Windows Live ID for the person and go to Outlook and click on Publish Online where it explains what to do, but when i click Next...nothing happens and even if i click on Back or Cancel nothing happens..i have to close the box by clicking on the X. I was able to setup my own Publish Online from my personal PC at home...but having this problem at work..we have 13 PC on a Linux Base Server.i am trying to setup Publish calendars via Outlook and i have tried it on 3 of the 12 PC's and its a Network at the moment as i understand it...as you can only logon to a PC that you have an account on.

What version of Outlook and Windows are you using?
I should say that there is no Next button after click on Publish Online...
Normally, this kind of behavior could be caused by the Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant service is not running properly.
To solve this issue, make sure if the Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant has been installed and running correctly.
To do so, open Computer Mangement (Enter compmgmt.msc in the Run window and click OK), find Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant is running correctly.
If it is disabled, enable it.
If couldn't find it there, download and install it:

I tried all that you suggested with no luck...i am wondering if you are able to Publish Online if the PC has multiple Users as that is the only difference that i can see between my own personal PC and the work PC's, I say this because the way that I set up my own Outlook at work to Publish Calendars was to do it from home via VPN and when I got to work it was all set up but if try to setup another persons Outlook on my work PC it will not allow me to do so.....and as i said I have created an Windows Live ID for the second User and when i get to the page above...and click Next...nothing happens, either by clicking on Next, Back or Cancel..i have to click on the X to close the box down.
I installed Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant and check to see if it was where you said to look but couldnt find it....and the User is an Adminstrator so should have all the permissions to install a program.
So i am wondering if it is because of multiple Users on the PC and if so ... When we change over to a Domain Network (where a person can login to any PC in the Office) would that make a difference and allow us to Publish Online??????
The only other thing i can think of trying is to get our IT guys to setup a VPN login for each other employees that need to Publish Online and I setup each Outlook for employee via my own PC using VPN.
Any thoughts on that????

When I did the setup on my home pc...it didnt ask me to login until i was in Office.com or afterwards...the problem is...its not even allowing me to get to OFFICE.COM to setup an account. With the one WORK PC that is working because i was able to setup the Office.com account on my home pc...whenever i update my calendar a popup dialog box appears asking for my Password....but that is not happening at all when i am trying to setup new accounts on other employee's WORK PC's....
Maybe I am not explaining myself clearly enough.....
Do i have to go to Window Live Id Sign In page and sign in and than go to the Outlook Program and setup an account with Office.com????
