    How to sync a Google Calendar with my Windows Live Mail Ca


    My Wife uses WLM (Desktop) installed on her PC to access her Google email address.

    A friend installed a Google calendar on her Desktop which is not linked to her Gmail account except for login purposes,
    that is the Calendar is not available if you go to the Gmail account on the web.

    Is there some way to sync the Google Calendar with the WLM (Desktop) Calendar?

    If I have left out required information please let me know.

    Regards

    Daniel

    2 Options , export your google calendar and import it into calendar (WLM), but this will not keep it up-to date as it's a 1 time import , or subscribe to the google calendar from within calendar (WLM)

    Oh...almost forgot...when pressing the ICAL button on the google calendar settings , make sure it's the 'Private' one you choose.

    Hi

    I managed to do it, thanks for your help.

    Now when I get home can the WLM calendar on the PC be used and will it sync to the Google Calendar?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately , google turned off that feature (EAS) early this year , it's currently 'read-only' one way from google to win-8 , someone did post a link to a win-8 store app that updates the google calendar , but it's stand alone and doesn't use the win-8 calendar data file.

    Hopefully either google will re-add EAS or MSoft will add CalDAV support soon but we're stuck till then.

    The app I mentioned is here WinPIM Calendar app for Windows in the Windows Store , but I'm not sure it's what you really want to start using.

    Hi

    sorry to mislead you, this is a Vista Home Premium PC, not W8, my other PC is W8 and I posted in the wrong forum.

    However it is mainly working well, my WLM calendar synced to the Google Calendar and the Google Calendar synced to the WLM calendar but the syncing has stopped, new entries in Google Calendar do not show in WLM and Vice Versa.

    To clarify the situation, refers to the Desktop version.


    Any ideas?


    Thanks

    Daniel

    The Google stuff should synch (eventually) it can be a bit slow....the other way around won't work unfortunately because of the EAS/CalDAV issues.

    Sorry if I intrude. I am not familiar with the google calendar but, if you are using Windows live, with the calendar, do you need both?

    Hi

    You are right, we do not need Google Calendar but that is what my wife has been using and
    it would mean transferring a lot of data over, but it's a good thought, I'll have a go at it and
    see how it goes.

    Regards

    You should be able to export your google calendar and then import it..
