.icalevent File Extension

Developer: Apple
File type: iCal Event File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .icalevent. Files with the file extension .icalevent can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .icalevent files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .icalevent file?

The ICALEVENT file extension was developed by Apple. This file extension is used by files categorized as data files and known as iCal Event Files. These files are deemed as ICAL EVENT files because they refer to the files used by the program Spotlight. ICALEVENT files are files that contain calendar event data cached and useful for searches. These files are usually saved in this directory: [user]/Library/Caches/Metadata/iCal/. These files also refer to files corresponding to the calendar events that the iCal application created. Apple Ical is an application that runs on MAC OS. It is an application providing users with tools needed for the tracking of schedules, birthdays, appointments, reminders and other events that are important for the users so they won’t have to miss any of these events. Since the ICALEVENT files contain all the event data created using Ical, they are deemed important for ICAL to be user-friendly and to serve its purpose.

how to open a .icalevent file?

Launch a .icalevent file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .icalevent file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .icalevent files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .icalevent file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .icalevent file will open the correct application. Click here to fix .icalevent file association errors

Apple iCal

Apple iCal

Apple iCal is a personal calendar software that has tools that enable a user to manage his appointments, schedules and other reminders that are personally essential. The name iCal was licensed from Brown Bear Software since 1997. However, before the OS X Mountain Lion was released, iCal was rebranded as simply Calendar last July 2012, which was the first calendar tool for OS X that had support for different calendars with management tools. This was designed by a French team with Jean-Marie Hullot as the leader who’s also known as a friend of Steve Jobs. It is a program compatible for Mac OS X 10.5, Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS 10.7, OS X Lion and OS X 10.8. What a user can do with iCal are the following: open iCal from the Applications folder or the Dock, create New Calendar from the File menu, schedule an event or create a reminder on the calendar, publish or share calendar using iPad, iPod or iPhone with the option to synchronize, set up iCloud calendar, CalDAV or Exchange calendar account, and subscribe to calendars of other users.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .icalevent files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .icalevent. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
