Windows 7: Email links problem - Windows Live Mail

Email links problem - Windows Live Mail

When I try to open any link from an email, I get an "Application not found" error message. I'm using Windows Live Mail and Windows7 Home 64bit.

I've searched and tried to fix it, but am currently stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Wombat,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Check that Live Mail has all it's default associations. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs.

Hope this helps.

When I go to Set default programs, Windows Live Mail isn't listed as a choice.

Under the Set Program Access and Computer Defaults section, it's listed as a choice. However, it won't allow me to change it, even when logged on as an administrator.

Hello Wombat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In Windows Live Mail, press Alt+M, click on Tools (menu bar), Options, General tab, then make sure that both Make Default buttons have been clicked on to grey them out. Also check to make sure that Internet Explorer is set as the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well.

Thanks for your help, this is driving me nuts. In WML, both the default Mail handler and the News handler are greyed out.

When I go to Set your Default Programs there is no Windows Explorer listed.

It would be Internet Explorer instead.

Well, it looks like you will need to do a repair install instead then.

Go to internet options, then click on the programs tab, then click on the set programs button, and then click the associate a file type option. Go down to the protocols section and look for http, see what is is affiliated with. If it is not set to IE, click the change button located on the top right, and select internet explorer from the list. Hope this helps

There is a section below Set Your Default Programs, called Set Program Access and Computer Defaults. This offers three choices Microsoft, Non-Microsoft and Custom. Under the currently selected Custom, Internet Explorer is listed, but won't allow me to change to it.

Under this Custom section, the "Choose a Default Web Browser" selection is "Use My Current Web Browser". Logged on as an Administrator, I selected Internet Explorer and then it would immediately revert back this setting under Custom.
