Windows 10: iCloud and Google Calendar Conflict: Both Use Same Email Address

    iCloud and Google Calendar Conflict: Both Use Same Email Address


    I have switched to Windows 10 for mail and calendars as Outlook was taking too long to load. I have set up my gmail account for mail and all is working fine. However I use iCloud for my calendars and want to see my iCloud calendars in Windows 10.

    However I am having problems setting up my iCloud account in Windows 10. I enter the relevant details but the "looking for your settings" process never completes. Could this be because I use the same email address for Gmail and my Apple ID?

    I suspect I'm making a basic error but would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

    Do you use two-factor/two-step authentication on your Apple account? If so the email may require an app specific password.

    Thank you. I do use two-factor authentication and this was the first thing I tried. I generated the password and used that but I get an error code: 0x800706be "sorry we weren't able to do that" as a comforting message!
