Using custom iCalendar files 3 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hi,

I developing an application witch generates iCalendar files, for testing proposes I tried to load my files to Rainlendar, but nothing loaded...

Can you check for why are my files incompatible with Rainlendar ? Other program opens my file, Outlook makes some unexcepted changes (misplaces some events), but online parser validated my file...

thx, for any advice

Welcome to the forum.

First of all, I'm not sure if this goes on "Bug Reports" because this isn't a Rainlendar's bug.

Viewing the file seems OK, but in a closer look, there are 3 characters at the beggining of the file: 0xEF 0xBB 0xBF. You will see here in Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte-order_mark#Representations_of_byte_order_marks_by_encoding (see under UTF-8) that this characters can/could cause troubles in some programs.

I remove these characters and Rainlendar2 reads "25 events and 0 task". So, I think that's the bug.

Then, the idea is: Try to save your files in UTF-8 without BOM.
