Hey all.
we have a web application that has a calendar component, and we need to export it to the MS Outlook Calendar. We have some code that works sometimes - it seems to depend on the operating system, as sometimes it exports it as a htm doc.
can anyone point me in the direction to get this working.

blu.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

your browser needs to be setup to handle the mime type being returned by the server

You'll need to try to import the iCal data into the app. A browser won't help you
