Recurring component not found

while evaluating BirdieSync I stumbled over the following error while synchronizing one of my calenders:
Error number: 0x804a0251
Error description: Recurring component not found. Only happens when recurring=1 is passed in by fetch commands. This code is returned if part of the recurring series (either the master or an exception) is missing.

Lightning: 0.8
Calender: Sun Java System Calender (WCAP)
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate

Google-Calender Synchronisation as well as local works perfect for me. If you need more information let me know. Hopefully this can be fixed


Best regards

no resolution or hint so far......Again my question : Is this a known issue and can be resolved in next version of BirdieSync ?
It is a buying criterium for me.

Actually, this is very likely a known issue. There is presently a problem in Lightning/Sunbird which doesn't properly handle invitations which are occurrences of a recurring series. These problems are referenced in bugzilla but haven't been fixed yet.
Did you receive invitations in your calendar which are particular occurrences of a recurring series ? (for instance you received an invitation for a particular day of an event which occurs every month)

The only solution would be to patch the WCAP provider of Lightning/Sunbird. But this patch is not available right now. Maybe for Lightning/Sunbird 0.9.

Hi Birdy,

thanks for your answer. Of course most of my events are recurring but the fewest are invitations. Is there a way to find out what event raises the error in detail ?
I stay in close contact with developers of lightning and will hand this information over. Maybe I can get some information...
Btw.: What do you think how long it will take BirdieSync supports lightning 0.9 if released ?


Best Regards
