ErnestAgyare :

please verify that your time and you time zone is set up properly

Customer:

they are the proper time and time zone

ErnestAgyare :

Quit iCal/Calendar.
Make backup copies of these files before deleting them.
Delete the calendar cache found here:
~/Library/Calendars/Calendar Cache
~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iCal (if these files exist)

Also the following:

Quit iCal/Calendar.
Make backup copies of these files before deleting them.
Delete the Events directory found here:
~/Library/Calendars/*.calendar/Events
Delete the application's preference files here:
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.helper.plist (if this file exists)

Than restart the computer and test

Let me know the results please

ErnestAgyare :

They are there.

You open Finder, click Finger, Go and type in

~/Library/Calendars

Dont forget the ~

Customer:

I can't find any of those files

ErnestAgyare :

have you done a update

Customer:

Yes, I have the updates on automatic. current version OS X 10.8.4

ErnestAgyare :

have you deleted and reinstalled it

Customer:

have I deleted and reinstalled what?

ErnestAgyare :

ical

Customer:

No, I didn't know I could do that. How would I do that? I know I can delete & reinstall Outlook, but I didn't know I could do that to the native software that comes on the Mac

ErnestAgyare :

also what is the address your are getting in ical

Customer:

I don't understand the address question

ErnestAgyare :

before we do that have you removed the account from ical and added it back

Customer:

I have not done that. I will do that now.

ErnestAgyare :

please let me know if that works

Customer:

Well, I don't get that error message any more, but my calendar is still not syncing, but I guess that would probably be considered a different issue?

ErnestAgyare :

yes you will have to open another question but i think i c an assist you with that as well give a second

ErnestAgyare :

1) Set up you Google Calendar in iCal.
To do this, open iCal, go to Preferences, select the Accounts tab, click the '+' (plus) sign to add an account. In the Add account dialogue, select Gmail from the drop down menu. Enter your Gmail (or Google apps) email address and password XXXXX click Create. Proceed to Outlook 2011.

2) Configure iCal sync in Outlook 2011.
Go to Outlook Preferences and choose Sync Services in the bottom of the window. Tick the Calendar check box. In the accounts window it will say 'On my computer'. This is correct, as iCal does the sync'ing to your computer.

Wait a few minutes (or perhaps close/open Outlook) to see your calendar entries appear. You can always double check that they appear in iCal first.

Hope this helps.

ErnestAgyare :

i hope that helps. I will be on standby. I also thank you for remembering to rate me as this is how i get credit for the service i provided you in reference to the error

Customer:

That didn't help, but I appreciate your trying. Thank you. Have a good week.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
