I used to be able to run 'timedate.cpl' to bring up the calendar in Windows XP. Is there an equivalent command in Windows 7?

It is not available in Windows 7 anymore.

You can try copying wincal from Windows Vista or from here then create a user variable with the name, for example wincal and point it to the executable file on your hard drive.

timedate.cpl works for me in Windows 8 and I am sure it worked in Windows 7 as well.

%systemroot%\system32\control.exe timedate.cpl,Date and Time

is the full command. What does it do for you?

'timedate.cpl' can be used but it brings up a big clock instead of the calendar that pops up when you click on the time on the bottom right hand corner of your monitor – Lloyd Banks Nov 19 '12 at 14:39
@LloydBanks - Good information to have, update your question, to include what you want displayed exactly. – Ramhound Nov 19 '12 at 14:49
The calendar/clock popup when you hover over the time seems to be part of Windows explorer, not a control panel applet. I don't know how to get to that from the command line. – Peter Hahndorf Nov 19 '12 at 14:59
