When trying to send a appointment as an i calender in Outlook 2003, I get an error stating, "Can't create file:  Olktmp.ics.  Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions of the folder."  I've looked everywhere and can't find the answer. HELP!

    Do you have permission to the folder you are trying to create the file in?

    I have administrator access.

    1)  have you tried creating the appointment in icalendar format first, then sending it?
    2)  are you running Office 2003 with Office Service Pack 1 installed?
    3)  when Office was installed, was it a complete install or a typical install (some needed components may be missing)?

    I know this doesn't sound good, but you may want to reinstall Outlook from the CD and reapply the service pack.

    >>I have administrator access.

    Does not do anything if the folder is set to read only.

    Via this website, sounds like a similar problem (i.e. temp folder acting up)
    The last post: "I have outlook 2003. I found the cure. You have to edit the registry. Change the key from HKEY current user software microsoft office (version of outlook usuually the highest number). Change from temporary intewrnet files to temp. That worked for me."

    I solved the problem by deleting the temp folder in documents and settings, username, local settings and recreating a new temp folder with a new blank file called Olktmp.ics inside it.
