What did microsoft do to Synchronized Calendars?

I am been trying now for 2 hours to use the microsoft live as Microsoft has
decided we can no longer share our calendars without Windows 7. Where is the
easy fix. This is nuts! I work from home and until last week was able to see
other calendars from outlook and now I have to create another calendar online
seperate from outlook??? Anyone found a solution because there appears none
on their website. I download Office Live and it will not even copy my current
calendar.

Open a Googlemail account and use the Google Calendar Synch utility. Works
just fine!

How were you sharing calendars? I'm not aware of anything in win7 that would
allow sharing that is not in older OS's (because there is nothing in win7).

if you used office online, there is a bug in the authentication process. To
workaround it, go to office.com and sign in with the same Live ID you use to
publish your calendar and select "Save my e-mail address and password".
Restart Outlook and the browser. It should now work for either publishing or
updating a subscribed calendar, at least until you sign out of Office Online
and/or LiveID.

I’m not sure what the secret is - before it worked, I trusted Microsoft.com
for both web and cookies, set cookie handling to allow all cookies,
restarted both Outlook and IE, and deleted saved passwords in Control Panel,
User accounts. Oh, and I cleaned out cookies to get rid of remembered
passwords.
