Currently the software just extracts the "EVENTS" data present in the ICS files and imports that to your main Google Calendar. In the future more features are expected.

Pre requisites
Windows computer with .NET Framework v2.0 or newer installed.
Internet connection :-)

Installation and use
To use the software you need to complete two basic tasks; first configure the application to use your GCal account and second configure windows to use this application to open .ics files. To fulfill these tasks follow these steps:

1. Configure the application to use your GCal account

Download the software and copy it to a folder in your hard disk (it doesn't need installation).
Open the file gcalicsimporter.exe.config with your favorite text editor and replace:
{User Name Here} with your google user name (or full email if you are using a Google hosted domain).
{User Password Here} with your google account password.
{Your calendar URL here} with your calendar URL. For this URL use:

https://www.google.com/calendar/hosted/{Your domain here}
if you are using Google hosted domains

or

https://www.google.com/calendar/
if you are using a calendar on a gmail.com account.

2. Configure Windows to use this aplication to handle .ics files

Using Windows Explorer right click over an .ics file and choose the "Open With..." (or "Choose default program..." if you are using Windows 7) menu option.
Locate the "gcalicsimporter.exe" file in the folder you chose before and mar the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" check box, then click OK.

From that moment on, whenever you double click a .ics file or click a link to one in an application, that file will be opened with the "gcalicsimporter.exe" application and it will read the contents of the file, importing the EVENTS data it finds on it to the Google calendar that you configured.

import works - but on the wrong date.
it imports the event on the date of import and ot on the day of event.

This works, but it creates dups each time it is run.
