When opening an .ics file from Sunbird 0.3a1 or older the following exeption is displayed:
This error occurs with local and remote ics calendars.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open .ics file from Sunbird 0.3a1 or older.
An error message is displayed which is not very helpful to the user.
a. Be more flexible when reading old .ics files
b. Display the location(s) of the error in the .ics file
Note: The error does not occur with all calendar files. It seems to be related to the datetime format.
The error number is: 0x80570021
Please attach the (anonymized) calendar file that causes this problem to this bug or provide steps how to create such a event/task in Sunbird 0.3a1.
Resolving as duplicate of Bug 349715 because I think it's the same underlying problem that should be fixed with the patch in Bug 349715.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 349715 ***
I just wanted to report that the error messages are gone with the patch proposed in Bug 349715. Sunbird 0.3 is now working as expected.
