I have implemented a calendar application which provides 2 methods for exporting the calendar. One method directly downloads a .ics file which can then be manually imported into a calendar client. The other method provides an URL which can be used by a calendar client to subscribe to the calendar. It is intended that the second method should work the same way as subscription to Google calendar.


With both methods, the .ics file is the same. When it is manually imported, it appears to work correctly. However, when the subscription link is used, the Mac calendar program does not find any events in the calendar. (Microsoft Outlook on Windows 7 experiences the exact same problem.)


While it seems from the manual import that the .ics file is correctly constructed, there is clearly something wrong with the subscription process. I'm hoping that there might be some ical experts in the forum who might be able to provide an insight as to what I am missing in getting the subscription service to work.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
