Cannot get the calendar.live.com to sync with Outlook 2007

Cannot get the calendar.live.com to sync with Outlook 2007

Post by S2VpdG » Sun, 14 Sep 2008 01:37:04


I cannot get the Windows Live Calendar (calendar.live.com) to sync with MS
Outlook 2007.

Here's an overview of the process and where it breaks down:
Before - Install Outlook Connector Beta 12.1 and get it to "work" with email
& contacts.
1. I go to calendar.live.com and create a new calendar. Under options make
it default calendar. Delete other calendars (leaving US holidays & birthday)
via website, create a test appointment.
2. Restart Outlook 2 or 3 times. The new calendar will show up. I can see
the "test" appointment. I can connect to the calendar OK.
3. Within Outlook, create a second test appointment. (nothing fancy-just a
plain appointment).
4. Go to email folder, hit send and recieve.
5. The "server status" returns an error (yellow triangle). "Calendar
Error". I have pasted a copy of the detailed report below.
6. I can never get the calendar "server status" error to go away. Send and
recieve, restarting outlook, waiting a long time before trying again, all do
not work. Email and Contact folders do continue to work.

I have tried this process in several different ways for the last week. I
have tried reinstalling Outlook Connector Beta and running Windows Update.

Other Issues:
A. I often get a screen "Windows Live Calendar isn't available" or "unable
to process this request" at calendar.live.com

Questions:
I. How do I fix this?
II. Baring that, could someone give me info to help troubleshoot? Can
anyone get this to work? Is there something wrong on the server side? Or do
you think it's my computer and my installation of outlook?

1. Trouble getting calendar to synch to Outlook 2007

2. Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003 clients cannot view calendars of Outlook 2007/Exchange 2007 users

We are in the middle of planning the migration to Exchange 2007, and I have
noticed that our Outlook 2003 users can not view the shared calendars of
users on Exchange 2007.
I get the message "Unable to display the folder. The information store
could not be opened." I have checked permissions and they look fine. Email
is replication fine between the 2 servers, and the Free/Busy info looks
good.

I tried to google this, but I get everything but.....

Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance!
