    Hi,

    I want to send to the user an event for the outlook calender.

    My app builds a file:Meeting_9_1_2008__21_26_28.vcs

    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    PRODID:-//Microsoft Corporation//Outlook MIMEDIR//EN
    VERSION:1.0
    BEGIN:VEVENT
    DTSTART:20080109T192628Z
    DTEND:20080109T202628Z
    LOCATION:myLocation
    CATEGORIES:BSW_Task
    DESCRIPTION;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:issueDesc
    meeting=0D=0A
    SUMMARY:issueSummary
    PRIORITY:3
    END:VEVENT
    END:VCALENDAR

    I can open this file with outlook 2007 but not with outlook 2003.

    the error:

    Microsoft Office Outlook cannot import vCalendar file. This error can appear if you have attempted to save a recurring Lunar appointment in iCalendar format. To avoid this error, set the appointment option to Gregorian instead of Lunar 

    any ideas?

    thanks
