export calendar event to MS Outlook as vcs.

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.

i spent all weekend on this and no joy.
if i right click and save target as, it saves as .htm, clicking on it brings up funny MIME type stuff, even though i specify the mime type in my web.xml
gonna spend some more time on this today. if you guys have any other ideas, pls shout loud

thanks

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
