Windows 10 Creative Update (1703) breaks Outlook / iCalendar synchronisation (again!)

Here we go again! As it did with the last Windows 10 major update, the latest version recently released (1703) breaks the synchronisation between the iCloud calendar and Outlook.

If, like me, you use iCloud as your main calendar then after this update you’ll need to…

  • Logout of iCloud on your PC (from the icon in the status bar)
  • Uninstall iCloud
  • Reboot
  • Reinstall iCloud making sure you click to apply it with Outlook functionality.

As I mentioned both of the last two major Windows 10 updates have suffered this problem. It’s not like the combination of Outlook and iCloud is unusual so it is just ‘bloody mindedness’ on Microsoft’s part that they don’t address this.

    If you just quit Outlook, logout of iCloud, log back into iCloud, and restart Outlook you will have no problems.

      Whilst this is the first thing to try this doesn’t always work – and didn’t in my case. If it doesn’t then the only option is to uninstall as per my original post.
