Outlook 2010 Shared Calendar Free/Busy on Outlook 2007

Outlook 2007 user has blank calendar when opening share calendar of outlook 2010 user. If we use OWA 2010 or Outlook 2010 user has no issue opening the 2010 shared calendar with Free/Busy Details setting and can see appointments as Free/Busy. Also if we set the permissions level to reviewer outlook 2007 user can view outlook 2010 calendar just fine.

When permissions is set to Free/Busy only, the following error comes up after a few minutes: "You do not have sufficient permission to preform this operation on this object. See the folder Contact or your system administrator."

Is there a setting on Exchange to set the correct permission, or can all this still be something local to outlook?

    To be able to view another users calendar you surely need rights to the Calendar ?
    If you have Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010 and you give UserA "Full Mailbox Access" to UserB you need not add his Mailbox as additional in Outlook it can automaticall understand and show you the data .... but with Outlook 2007 and prior you have to manually add to let it show you the data.

    Have the Outlook 2007 Upgraded with latest Updates.

    Both users are on windows 7 and are up to date. I've checked on Exchange and the permissions to the calendar is set to be Free/Busy only, which is what the 2010 user wants. He doesn't want to allow full access to his calendar only for 2007 user to be able to view his free/busy time.
    If we do give full access it seems to work and 2007 user is able to pull up 2010 calendar to view all appointments clearly. It just doesn't pull up anything when permissions are set to Free/Busy only.
