Inserting Google Calendar events using c#.NET Winform

I've written a small application and one of the requirements is to allow Users to add events to their Google calendar using my application.  I've been browsing the net and have tried several examples, but I keep getting an "invalid credentials" error. I'm missing something in the code and I've yet to figure it out. Any help or suggestions would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe this will help.

var auth = new OAuth2LeggedAuthenticator(domainName, consumerSecret, usernameWithoutDomain, domainName);  //domainName is presently used as the OAuth ConsumerKey for Google's 2legged OAuth

var service = new CalendarService(auth);

service.Key = serviceKey;

var results = service.CalendarList.List().Fetch();


Open in new window

In Google Apps "Manage this Domain" > "Advanced Tools"

Using "Manage OAuth domain key" enable key, generate secret, uncheck "Allow access to all APIs".

Using "Manage third party OAuth Client access" enable the APIs you want access to using your domain as "Client Name" and the APIs you want to access e.g. "" for the calendar.

Then finally create a project in the API console, use the APIKey as the serviceKey in the above example and turn on the APIs you need to access.
