Windows 7: Messenger and Mail still missing after installing Win Live Essentials

Messenger and Mail still missing after installing Win Live Essentials

Hi All,

My PC runs on Windows 7 OS.
I've installed the Windows Live Essentials but MSN Messenger and Live Mail programs are missing from the Start Menu though the installer stated that these 2 programs are already installed on my pc.

I browsed to the Programs folder but can't locate any folders on MSN Messenger either.
There is a folder for Live Mail though. However, I can't find any .exe file inside that folder which I can use to create a shortcut to my desktop.

Had reinstalled the latest Live Essentials package umpteen times but problem remain unsolved.


Appreciate your help!
Thanks alot!

Here is something to try.
Right click on your desktop - New - Shortcut
In the location line paste
"C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe"
with QUOTES!
Then click Next. If it fails - something is wrong.

Live Mail - MS Essentials - Not a Valid Feed!
Live Mail from Microsoft Essentials is very particular about which feeds it will and will not take. More often than not I get the "http://feedxxxxxx: Is Not a Valid Feed" Error/Dialog box. It seems very strange sometimes as it will accept & reject feeds from the same site, eBay for example. ...
