Unicode (Cyrillic)

Thank u for the nice software!
I just wanted to ask is there a way to make it work with Cyrillic characteristics (when linking to google calendar)? As I can see  u've already did that in iCal4OL...

Edit: I was wrong about iCal4OL... it says that it is unicode but my events still lock like that: ?›NZ?±??????N€ (?????°???»?? ?? ?Y?°???»?????°)

Re: Unicode (Cyrillic)

The user interface (window) uses ANSI-controls - so here no chance to support Cyrillic, and therefore the iCal-Feeds/Files can't have Cyrillic names.

But the events should import correctly in Cyrillic (iCal-Feeds are UTF8-encoded).
If this is not the case, please email me (info-at-gutentag.ch) a .ICS-File in Cyrillic for testing...

Re: Unicode (Cyrillic)

I found something, but I'm not sure if this will fix it.
Download again(!) ICS4OL and install over...

Try it - and please let me know!  (So I know, I have to fix it in iCal4OL, too)

Re: Unicode (Cyrillic)

I tried it - and your ICAL-Feed is working here (it does show up in OL as Cyrillic), hmm.

Are you sure you updated ICS4OL (and not iCal4OL)...
The date/timestamp of C:\Program Files\ICS4OL\ICS4OL.exe should be: 20. Aug 2010 (today) 16:03 (European Time).

I'm using Outlook 2003 SP3 on WinXP SP3 German.
What's your environment?

Re: Unicode (Cyrillic)

For other readers:

On English OS, where the default language is set to Cyrillic (Regions and Country Options - Enhanced), VB6 can't decode UTF-8 correctly (seems like a LCID bug in strconv()).

I implemented in ICS4OL 1.0.5 (perhaps you need to download again) under the button [Credentials] an option, to circumvent this issue, by letting WinHTTP.dll doing the decoding - here it works.
