Windows 7: Why don't the message rules work on my Windows Live Mail

Why don't the message rules work on my Windows Live Mail

I have WLM 2011 on my desktop running Vista and the message rules (I use the color coding) work beautifully.

I have it on my laptop running Windows 7 and shen I click to apply, it states that rules have been applied, but it won't color code. Should I have WLM 2012 instead of 2011, or isn't it going to make any difference?
