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.
