User is unable to view shared Outlook public folder calendar's color codes.

The user's computer is Windows 7 64-bit and is running Office 2010 32-bit.

The other two user's in the same office (who are also running Windows 7 64-bit OS and Office 2010 32-bit are able to view the Outlook public folders shared calendar codes.

What do I need to do to fix this issue?

I have already done the fixes found in these websites, but this hasn't fixed the issue:

I have also run this command: outlook.exe /remigratecategories

What else can I do to fix this issue?

As far as I know you need to set the colors used in the shared calendar as well as the name of the colors in the shared calendar exactly the same on each computer sharing the calendar in Outlook, in order for the setting to transfer over.

For example, consider this scenario
Red has been set on PC 1 as ADoLk

Other computers:

You have to set Red to ADoLk, case sensitive.

For the categories to display correctly, each color category used has to be set up this way.
