TOPIC: use of .ics files as update medium

use of .ics files as update medium 1 Year, 8 Months ago  
Hi,

Occasionally I receive an email with a .ics file attached that I would like to be able to update my rainlendar calendar with.

How do I do that, or am I missing a product that would allow this. I don't use Outlook or google calendar.

You can import the file in the manager dialog (File->Import->iCalendar Format). Or just drop the file over the calendar window.

When I try the drop or the File|Import|Ical format I get the same result. It says "Rainlendar Imported 0 items successfully"

What can I do to fix this?

The ical file is as follows (I altered the mailto IDs since this is a public forum):

The reason why the import fails is that the event is an exception to a recurring event and Rainlendar cannot find the original event. If you import first the original event you should be able to import this event as well. Alternatively you can remove the RECURRENCE-ID from the file and the event can be imported then but any new imported exceptions of the same event will replace the previous.
