RemoteCalendars is a COM-.NET Add-in for Outlook 2003/2007, written in C#. After installing this plugin, every Outlook user should be able to subscribe, reload and delete a generic remote iCalendar (RFC 2445) from Outlook 2003/2007.

Since someone hasn't been able to install into Outlook 2007 the previuos version (6.2) while 6.1 was functional.

This a new minor release. Since I've received that changing the registry wouldn't harm the users that'll switch to Outlook 2007, I've redone this trick. In this way, RemoteCalendars can be installed also for LUA.
In addition, a simple bug concerning Google Calendar sync has been fixed.... read more

RemoteCalendars 6

RemoteCalendars is a COM-.NET Add-in for Outlook 2003/2007, written in C#. After installing this plugin, every Outlook user should be able to subscribe, reload and delete a generic remote iCalendar (RFC 2445) from Outlook 2003/2007.

Finally, a new major release. There are two main features in this new release:

2) A first support to the TimeZone component has been added, when publishing: this is still very experimental, but has become necessary since other clients are now strictly requiring (as written in the RFC 2445) the VTIMEZONE component.... read more

First release of IE4RC!!

IE4RC means Internet Explorer toolbar for RemoteCalendars. It's a COM-.NET plugin for Internet Explorer, which it'll make it possible to subscribe an iCalendar (RFC 2445) in Outlook if RemoteCalendars is installed. It'll add also support for webcal.

I'm proud to say that the first version of IE4RC is finally available! Installing this extension for Internet Explorer will give you something quite similar to the usability of iCal under Macintosh.
How does it work? Just remember to close any instance of IE you've got running, install and you're done. Then, when'll you right-click on a link on Internet Explorer, you'll be able to choose "Subscribe to RemoteCalendars". Click it and Outlook will start (if it wasn't running) and you'll have already set the subscribe form!... read more

This option is very useful when working on a laptop, but unfortunately it seems there are cases where it doesn't detect an Internet Connection when available. With this option, this won't happen again.
In this minor release we have also fixed two bugs, one concerning the publishing of events with some particular categories, and the other about parsing correctly yearly events like Thanksgiving.... read more
