How can reinstall Windows live Gallery without All WL ?

How can reinstall Windows live Gallery without reinstall ALL Windows Live Essential??

-I have tried by repair in the installation programs, but after reboot still not working
-I have tried the web setup but it says already installed.
-I have tried start in compatibility programs.

See screenshot...

It says: "Unable to start the Photo Gallery. The disk space may be insufficient or missing critical files in Windows".

All the other programs from Windows Live are working fine .Only the Windows Live Gallery won't load anymore. Thanks

INFO:
I have uninstall the Evaluation/Trial Version of Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007...
and reinstall powerpoint viewer 2007 & Exel Viewer 2007 and the compatibility Patches for Microsoft Office 2007, since then it doesn't work...anything to do with some .net of sync apps?

Hi NoN, I would just go ahead and reinstall the Live Essential program as it sounds like some files got corrupted. - Finding your applications in Windows 7 - Windows Live. And I don't think you can install Live Gallery without the rest of the stuff installed.

Also you didn't need to uninstall Microsoft Office since it has nothing to do with your problem.

Err...I see why you uninstalled. You had the Trail Version. However, again, that's not the problem.

Do a complete uninstall using Revo Uninstaller , reboot, and then try to reinstall.

In my opinion you don't need any "special" uninstall programs to uninstall Windows Live Essentials. In this case the program isn't going to do anyting more than the standard uninstall feature does under Windows.

Also note the the "free" version doesn't support Windows 7 x64 bit.

It does...I used it just yesterday. It works fine. Also, Absolute Installer is an alternative. It's not a "special uninstaller". It runs the standard uninstaller, then scans the registry for leftover keys and the harddrive for extra files. It also has other tools like a startup manager, among other things. Try it before you judge it.

OK Guys!

Thanks Sygnus21 and Product FRED...the sfc /scannow did nothing special...I might follow your advices after backing up my mail box...

The sfc /scannow took ages because of my internal 500gb disk...It's getting very late here so i'll do that tomorrow.

Before with the normal uninstaller and try, if some errors ocur Revo Uninstaller Freeware.

Cheers!

Well again, Did uninstall proprely by programs the WLE and cleaned up a bit the registry and old hidden folders...

But this still doesn't work for Windows Live Gallery only!

I've give it up on Windows Live Gallery and decide to kept Movie Maker as it install both anyway.

So one works, Movie maker and the other don't (stuck!!) Might be a bug somewhere...they will fix it.

I'm using Windows Live Essential as i've got an email by them since early 2001...so not much choice at the moment.

You can choose which parts of Windows Live Essentials you want to uninstall quite easily. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program. Choose Windows Live Essentials and click Uninstall/Change.

Choose Uninstall or Repair, click Continue:

You can also download the Windows Movie Maker version that was included with XP and is much better than the current version.
