Running ICS4OL with iCloud calendar?

Hi,

I am trying to use ICS4OL to subscribe to an iCloud calendar in Outlook 2003. The iCloud calendar address starts with webcal://p01-calendarws.icloud.com/ etc... and finishes with a "-".

When I enter this address in ICS4OL it doesn't recognize it ("the URL does not use a recognized protocol"). I have tried various variants using http://, https:// or ical:// but nothing seems to work, telling me"http-address of Remote iCalendar invalid, not found or Proxy active", followed by a long list of text ("400:{"status": 400, "message": "(9c81506-ed etc...").

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,

Arnaud

Re: Running ICS4OL with iCloud calendar?

Under button [Authentication] switch to
[X] User WinInet.dll instead of WinHttp.dll
Leave Login/PW empty (use Feed URL which does not need authentication).

http:// or https:// - Test both..

I never tested it with iCloud - and I don't intend to update ICS4OL anymore.

Re: Running ICS4OL with iCloud calendar?

Thanks, I tried it but it didn't work either. I understand that you don't want to update ICS4OL anymore.

I am already using iCal4OL to sync my Google Calendar and Outlook Calendar (downloaded the trial version this morning), it seems to work OK. Is it possible add a second calendar (iCloud), but I don't want to sync it, just view it in Outlook 2003 as an additional calendar?

Thanks in advance,

Arnaud

Re: Running ICS4OL with iCloud calendar?

I will test iCloud - because I'm wondering, if perhaps the header "user-agent:" is an issue here (perhaps iCloud interpret the request as a browser request).

iCal4OL: How to make a second *.ini file (e.g. iCloud.ini) see http://ical.gutentag.ch/faq_en.html#F1
- First make in Outlook a new SubCalendar
- Then Start iCal4OL
- Choose [Open/New] ==> iCloud.ini
- Use Assistant [Other] ... follow the steps here: http://ical.gutentag.ch/Outlook-iCloud- … al4OL.html
  Select [X] Only Download (asFeed)
- Don't forget to change the Outlook Calendar to the new SubCalendar on tab "1. How"!
- Test and Save
- Open Default.ini and mark on tab "Start" [X] iCloud.ini to run chained..  SAVE
- Use a link from START - All Programs - iCal4OL ... to run iCal4OL in background (tasktray)

Re: Running ICS4OL with iCloud calendar?

I tested now iCloud Subscribe... and it does work with ICS4OL!

Important: You must send the link to an email of yours, because the link in the iCloud Browser Interface is truncated!
                 (And replace webcal with https)
