Has anyone tried and succeeded in accessing via VB.Net and Outlook Programming to programmatically check the contents of a resources calendar, for checking what events have been made by users.

So example is that a school is using a room resource in Exchange or O365, to reserve a room for meetings or events. Outlook handles this nicely, and confirms rejects bookings based on if the room is free.

However a VB.net app needs to display the availability of the resource to users without them manually checking the calendar themselves.

Is this possible? I have tried to use the following code (it works for real mailboxes, but not for resource ones it seems):
objDummy = objApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem)
objRecip = objDummy.Recipients.Add(strName)
objRecip.Resolve()
objFolder = objNS.GetSharedDefaultFolder(objRecip, Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderCalendar)

Any ideas or thoughts, would be much appreciated.

Diane,

Thanks for the response. Appears that the issue was down to Exchange security issues. I had to add the outlook profile to the admin permissions and then wait for 24hrs for the system to synchronise.

Now it has been set correctly. I am able to use the normal resolve methods as if I am reading a colleagues mailbox. Had me stumped as the error message wasn't very helpful.

Thanks
