Windows 7: Latest Windows Essentials Version Released


08 Aug 2012   #121

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit
 
 

I have now updated Mail, Photo Gallery and Movie Maker on Windows 7 also and all is well. It did ask for a reboot in Windows 7 but in Windows 8 RP it did not. Must be a Windows 8 thing.

WLM Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3503.0728) fixes the Appdata\Local GUID garbage collection issue.

The files are created in the appropriate place - Appdata\Local\Temp but still requires manual cleanup.

Only problem I had with the update is that it removes the entries for Movie Maker and Photo Gallery from the HP Launch Box on the Taskbar for Windows 7 on their laptop. They must be using different names for the programs and this confuses the HP Launch Box. I wish I knew a way to get them back into the Launch Box... it was convenient with the Live programs being grouped together that way.

Has MS fixed Windows Live Photo Gallery?

Has MS fixed Windows Live Photo Gallery?

I have WLPG Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8117.416).

I just reinstalled Windows 7 and I discovered that if I redirected the "My ..." folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos & Downloads) to the appropriate partitions, they show up in the "Libraries" (thus making them partially useful).

However, WLPG (like most MS programs) reads the "Libraries" and then adds everything to itself.
This means that it reads my video partition, issues a stack of errors and then crashes (apparently it can't cope with various common video extensions).
Since WLPG is automatically adding these folders they can't be removed.

Questions:
  1. Has this been fixed in the latest version?
  2. If it hasn't been fixed, what alternative programs do people recommend for mass image tagging?

I figured something out that was excited about (is that sad?)

Start
All Programs
Windows Live Mail
Right Click
Properties
Compatibility
Run this program in Compatibility mode for Vista SP2.
Ok.

Now you go to Show Hidden Icons, right click the WLMail icon and the "Hide Window when minimized" option will come back. Now, Windows Live Mail will stay in your hidden thing, and will still be open. This option was disabled in the latest versions of WLMail. I hope this helps people that want to keep it open, but not take up room in the Taskbar

Does it work?

http://www.sevenforums.com/software/...ml#post2113261

So:
  • Is it possible to control the new version (16.4.3505.912)?
  • Can it handle common video extensions?
Update
I installed the latest version:
  • It doesn't crash when it loads my Video library.
  • You still can't control what folders it loads though.

I can't be-leave after all this time from "Windows Mail" with all the requests they've had, and still we can't add a picture to a contact in our own address book. Well back to Thunderbird.
