ics import problem

Post by goodman2012 »

hello,

when I import a .isc file,
an error windown came up with following information:

This iCal file can't be imported because some parts of it are not iCal compliant. Please check with the vendor of the software that produced the file.

Strangely, I can use Outlook 2007 to open it.
My version is 4.01port,
Please check it.
Thank u!

Hello,

we need your ics file to check you. You can send it to ma@essentialpim... WITH a link to this topic. Thank you in advance.

Hello, Max,

Since my mailbox doesn't work properly, I'll put the content in this post.
Some of important information are replaced with xxx or XXX, and the whole structure is like following:

I've checked that a isc file with above modified contents still doesn't work in EPIM, by contrast it does work in Outlook.
please check whether such imformaion is sufficient for analysis.
Thank u!
