Windows 7: Trying to get Windows Live Mail (Only)

Trying to get Windows Live Mail (Only)

When I go to the Windows 7 Live Essentials I am having difficulty getting only the WLM out of the Essentials package.
I deselect all other programs and have WLM highlighted. But when I click on install I see that Windows is installing ALL of the Essentials programs. So I cancel the downloads.
All I want is Windows Live Mail.
What am I doing wrong?

Thank you,
Tegiro

Out of curiosity, have you actually let the installer run though to the end to see what actually happens? I've never paid attention to WLE when it installs so I'm testing it now to see if I have the same experience.

Update: Works just fine for me. Try re-downloading the installer. If you un-checked what you don't want, it won't install it.

This is what I saw:

Hmmmm, it works for me too, Tegiro. I just installed just the Windows Live Mail, uninstalled it, and then went back and just installed the Windows Live Mail + Messenger. Both downloads worked fine, so I'm wondering if there is something on your system that is conflicting with the download - and preventing it from working properly.

Another possible solution concerns the source of the download. Sometimes you get a better result from a download from a different provider. From whom are you downloading the software? And, can you get it elsewhere?

Hi Johnathan,

With all the new features in Win 7 and WLM I really don't know what I did. But when I clicked on the Start icon and and clicked on "All Programs" I scrolled down to the bottom of the listing & saw Windows Live. In there were all the programs.
I guess the dealer that sold me the system already had it al there. Stupid of me to not know it. Live and learn I guess, especially with this new OS.

Cheers
