    Question

  • I would like to create an app that allows a user to enter date(s) then in return it creates an ICS or VCS file.

    1. Im not sure what the difference is between the two files could anyone advise?
    2. Where could i read up on this to achieve the task mentioned above?
    3. Any code examples anyone could provide?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello T-800,

    Welcome to MSDN Forums!

    For the details of ICS and VCS please refer to these link:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar

    And they just a kind of file format, actually they are a text file which describe a appointment in some standard format, so I think your question is not related to VSTO, even Outlook, so, I think you are off-topic in this forum.

    However, here's a blog article you could refer to :

    Thanks.

  • Hola, en cuanto al fichero ICS, ¿se podría establecer el evento de alguna manera para que se cree en un nuevo calendario o se indique al calendario al que se desea establecer?

    Muchas gracias.

    Un saludo.

  • No, ICS files are standalone - they do not (and cannot) specify which local Calendar folder the event will be created in.
