Automatically adding .ICS files 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
Is there any way I can double click on an ICS file and have it automatically added to my Rainlendar calendar? For example, while in a browser.

Unfortunately, you can't do that.
At this time, if you double click on an ICS file Rainlendar2 will try to import the event to an existent ICS file (at least in Windows if the association is setted). Maybe Rainy could add an option to this dialog to let the user copy instead of add.

I'm not sure if making a copy of the ics file is a good idea since that would create a new calendar every time you double click a file. But importing the events can be done be defining file association for the ics extension. Note that Rainlendar requires -i argument before the file name for the import to work.

how exactly would you do this -i argument so you can just check on an .ics file in browser or file itself so it imports it automatic?

Seems that Microsoft has removed this from Windows 7 but SuperUser.com has some tips how to do it: superuser.com/questions/136133/how-do-i-set-advanced-file-associations-in-windows-7

You need to set the command line argument for Rainlendar2.exe as: -i "%1"
