Ok then just hi light just dont open if it open s close then it will be hilighted then apple key and i then follow above instructions to change the application used to open file type in this case being .ics
Same as you would on a jpeg to use which every programme to open or a word doc execl file so that your comp is aware that ics needs to open ical
Melinda, I was having the same problem. I found that I could drag the invitation from my Mail message into the iCal icon (which is in my Dock).
- iCal then shows a notification alert (a red circle with a number in it on the iCal icon)
- Then I went to the View menu and clicked "Show Notificiations"
- Then I was offered a chance to "Accept" or "Decline". I chose "Accept" and the event showed up in iCal.
Maybe there's a simpler, faster way to do it. But this worked for me.
