Why can't I create this appointment in Groupwise using c#?

Here is the simple code I'm using:

            //Create a New Appointment
            GroupwareTypeLibrary.Appointment10 appt;

            try
            {
                appt = (GroupwareTypeLibrary.Appointment10)groupwiseAccount.WorkFolder.Messages.Add(gwAppointment, egwDraft, _missing);
               
            }
            catch (System.Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show("Could not create Appointment item:\r\n\r\n" + ex.Message);
                return;
            }

I get the following error when adding the appointment:

Object does not match target type.

Any ideas why this doesn't work?

No clue, but a different approach: send a mail with a Meeting invitation. It is more or less standardized for all Mail environments.

Here is what I am trying to do:  Create a new appointment with date, time, subject, etc. and then display the appointment using tokens.  My code is below and it seems to work fine (in a separate .cs file) but when used in my main application it gives the error: "Object does not match target type" on the following line.

appt = (GroupwareTypeLibrary.Appointment10)groupwiseAccount.WorkFolder.Messages.Add(gwAppointment, egwDraft, _missing);

This is really weird.  Why wouldn't it work in my main app all things being equal?  I cut/pasted the code in the main app to produce the code below.  And what really blows me away is that this was working before and now poof!  it doen't.

Thanks.

            }

            appt.StartDate = DateTime.Now;
            appt.EndDate = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(30);

            appt.AlarmSet = false;
            appt.Subject.PlainText = "This is the Subject";

            string messageID = appt.MessageID.ToString();
            string RetString;

            string cmdOpenMessage = "ItemOpen(\"" + messageID + "\")";

            GroupWiseCommander.GWCommander gwc = new GroupWiseCommander.GWCommander();
            gwc.Execute(cmdOpenMessage, out RetString);

            return;

}

I solved the problem.  It seems that when I changed the "refresh" of the DevExpress.XtraScheduler control to be performed on a Worker thread it caused groupwise to blow up every time I attempted a new appointment, etc.

Problem Solved I removed the refresh from occuring on a background thread.

FYI.  Groupwise does not play well with background threads.
