Re-install of WLM not allowed?

Hi,

Because problems with WLM 2009 on my 32 bit Windows 7 pro, XP virtual enabled Asus PC, I removed it hoping do a fresh install of WLM 2009. During the installation I got this pop-up that said "I already have this program"

What's going on here, as I have been installing & uninstalling Win programs for decades with no problem.

See attached pop-up image:


cheers,

Another option.
As always be careful of any add ons.

Download Windows Live Mail 2009 - FileHippo.com

Microsoft/Windows probably doesn't want you to install that old WLM. (2009)

The way I would do it, is to first remove Window Live Essential's 2009, then install Windows Essential's 2012.

How do I uninstall one or more Windows Essentials programs? - How To Uninstall

Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials

Hi,

Thanks,

Got the same msg after downloading from Filehippo. Look like there is MS block on my registry as I originally installed WLM 2009 in summer 2012.

WLM 2009 worked fine almost like OE6 which used the K.I.S.S. and with over 20+ years of using it I never had any problems with it. Web mail won't work for my business & Outlook is too big & cumbersome. I have looked at others to no avail inc WLM 2012, too kludgy.

In an email client, I need:
1) spell chk,
2) import & export email addr & blocked senders. Then save them to a place in my secure whse for backup.
3) email addr selected from a drop down box, not my typing then matching,
4) ability to copy-past and image right into the body of the email, Ability to view email & images whether images were attached or copy-pasted image directly in the email body when rec'd.
5) attach a file (any type) when I am in my any one of the data warehouses (partitions or external HD) on my PC.
6) send a web link, etc to a colleague or client while doing research on the net.
7) pop3 & imap support.
Now I realize all my requirements won't be solved with one product, WLM 2009 solved most and OE6 w Spami solved them all.
Now that you guys know what I'm looking for in an email client. Any ideas.

cheers,

klx

Robin,

Thank's,

Maybe you can tell me how close is WLM 2011 to WLM 2009 (or any other email program) ? If you have any thoughts, that would help.If you can, just tell me by # below what WML 2100 provides?
"WLM 2009 solved most and OE6 w Spami solved them all."

Will it install even though I had both WLM 2009 & 2012 previously installed?
1) spell chk,
2) import & export email addr & blocked senders. Then save them to a place in my secure whse for backup.

3) email addr selected from a drop down box, not my typing then matching,

4) ability to copy-past and image right into the body of the email, Ability to view email & images whether images were attached or copy-pasted image directly in the email body when rec'd.

5) attach a file (any type) when I am in my any one of the data warehouses (partitions or external HD) on my PC.

6) send a web link, etc to a colleague or client while doing research thru FF on the net.

7) pop3 & imap support.
Now I realize all my requirements won't be solved with one product, Rite now I'm exploring the cosmos.

I've spent over a week just trying to get a simple email program to no avail.

cheers,

I didn't think WLM 9 would install.
Give 11 or 12 a shot.
I would start with WLM 11 and see how you like it. You could always update to WLM 12 later.
