    I get this error from Outlook whenever I create a recurring appointment as Daily, Every 2 Days. 

    I use the WPF version of the classes to create an ical file, containing the following record, which I think is incorrectly formatted. 

    BEGIN:VEVENT
    DTSTART;TZID=E. Australia Standard Time:20111225T050000
    DTEND;TZID=E. Australia Standard Time:20111225T120000
    SUMMARY:Test recurrence
    UID:a49ee7e8-7813-4348-b7d7-0fdba1934521
    IMPORTANCE:None
    RRULE:FREQ=DAILY;UNTIL=20120103T020000Z;INTERVAL=2;BYDAY=SU,MO,TU,WE,TH,FR,
     SA
    END:VEVENT

    The error occurs when I try to import the file into Outlook.

    UPDATE:

    Having played with the output a little, the offending data is the "BYDAY=....". If this is removed, it is successfully read by Outlook, creating the recurring appointment every two days. 

    Please let me know when you can have a fix for this issue available.
