    My all life is on google calendars, I own a Pc with windows 7 on it and an Iphone 4 with ios 5 on it.

    My main goal is to view both iCloud calendars and google calendars in the same place on my Windows pc
    Here are my problems, google calendar can be used in 2 ways on the iphone, Gmail way and the Exchange way. With Gmail way everything works great but you can't invite or schedule events with people. With the Exchange way inviting people works great but you only get one calendar, even if you have 6 calendars with different colors (work, school etc') on the iphone you'll only have one.

    Now with iCloud calendars working together with google calendars on the iphone, you can invite people to your events but there is no way (not that i've found anyway)
    to see google calendars and icloud calendars in the same schedule inside Windows. When i'm home i'd like to enter new invites from my pc and not from my iphone and also to have an option to see all my events (iCloud and Google) at the same place.

    You can't publish iCloud calendars to google (robots.txt error)
    icloud.com interface sucks for me and i wouldn't won't to use that even if there's a way to publish my google calendars there.
    I can't use something like busyCal in windows (I'm assuming you can use google calendars and icloud calendars there together)

    Obviously i need some help..

    Can you not just have the multiple calendars open in Outlook - I do this at work and it allows to to overlay them or view them side by side. I must admit though, I have not tried viewing my iCloud calendar in Outlook, but should have thought this is possible...

    So glad i moved to a Mac and only have to deal with Windows at work now...!

    there should be a section on iphone where you can check each calendar to show up for you. it doesn't have that for you?

    Not with exchange, with exchange you get only one calendar regardless of how many calendars you got
