    Export Windows Live Calender

    Is there a way to export the Windows Live calendar?

    I can only find a way to import a calendar, but can't find a way to export
    to *.ics or *.vcs.

    I'm interested to know why you want the ICS file. There maybe an easier way
    to accomplish what you're after.

    Try this:

    1) log into calendar.live.com
    2) share -> "calendar you want an ICS file of"
    3) "share this calendar"
    4) Send friends a view-only link to your calendar
    5) Save the full details ICS URL
    6) click Save

    you should get a URL like this:
    webcal://geoffcl.calendar.live.com/calendar/private/fc35e17f-8cf9-484c-b53f-92f2f8482fa3/31189fe4-7009-49c8-9f93-07404842aae6/calendar.ics

    http://geoffcl.calendar.live.com/cal...6/calendar.ics
    Change the protocol to http and use that in IE. It should give you a dialog
    to save the ICS file.

    What I was looking for was a way to export the Calendar from Live Hotmail as
    a backup, so anyway to export it really. Actually, being more precise, as
    there doesn't seem to be a way to sync Live Hotmail directly with a mobile
    phone, .vcs export would be ideal so that I can export the calendar and also
    upload it to my mobile phone via the phones software.

    be able I also would like to know how to export the calandar to sync with
    either my I-touch or my palm device as I like a mobile version of the
    calandar that I can take with me. Since I do not have outlook and Vista
    Windows Mail does not work I am looking for an alternative. I can only
    effectivly manage one calander and WLC has some good features but porablity
    to other devices is not one of them.

    Export Windows Live Calendar to Windows Calendar Vista Agendatronix
    http://agendaium.com/blog/?p=138

    is this what your looking for?

    Go to your Windows Live Calendar at www.hotmail.com.
    Go to the Calendar you want to share, and click on share.
    Send friends a view-only link to your calendar.
    Press on ICS.
    Click the link. Accept, and import it into your Windows Calendar.
    Now the entries are in your Windows Calendar, but they are just read only. Don’t panic.
    Export your Windows Calendar to somewhere on your drive. (File-Export)
    Then erase that calendar off of your Windows Calendar.
    Then (File-Import) the calendar you just exported. Now it is no longer a ics subscribed calendar but a local calendar you can edit!

    Thanks, I know about that function but had not considered using it as you
    suggested. I use a portable device so that I can add and check calander
    details when away from base computer. Therefore I need some way to transfer
    and syn this information later with the MLC.

    MLC is only good when you have a connection to the internet.

    Hear, hear! Did without Outlook for what seems eons, and "progressed" from a
    multitude of OE versions to Windows Mail (Vista) to WLM. Have found WLM
    unacceptable and want out.

    Finally broke down and purchased Outlook. Plan come heck or high water to
    move everything from disparate computers and software platforms to Outlook
    and stick with that until... primarily to "standardize" contacts and
    calendars and to use Windows Mobile version-whatever to sync with
    smartphone - for which I'm too cheap and refuse to pay extra to surf the
    internet.

    My $0.02, possibly of no value to anyone else.
