Had to attend to important family business, funeral, that took some time. Now I am trying, for the second time, to follow the instructions to reinstate Windows Mail. I get an error message when trying to execute WinMailEdit.reg. " Can't import C:\Users\Daniel\Downloads\WinMailEdit\WinMailEdit.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes."
Please help!

Hello Mathew,

I think that may be a question best asked at our sister site Eight Forums instead.

However, I would think that it would be best to drop Windows Mail since it is no longer supported by Microsoft, and move on to a newer and better email client of your choice instead. For example, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc....

Batch File of Fix

Hey, I made a batch file of the fix on your page since I plan to use it on a lot of computers. I have attached the zip with the batch files (and other necessary components) if you wanted to add them to your page for people that want an easy fix. Pretty self-explanatory. Thanks for the great fix!

*EDIT All you need to run is "winmail32.bat" for a 32bit installation, or "winmail64.bat" for a 64bit installation. The rest of the files are just there for the batch file to use.

Great Idea EK

Can you provide some info on how to run it ?

Start with the 64 bit .bat, or the .exe?

Sure, all you do is run "winmail32.bat" for 32 bit installations, or "winmail64.bat" for a 64 bit operating system. That will do the entire windows mail tutorial for you. (besides troubleshooting of course)

Hope it helps, Mantis

Service Pack 1 Problems

I did the Windows Mail fix as originally posted on a friend's computer.
All went well. Thank You again...

I thought I had all windows updates done, but I was wrong.
Service pack 1 would not install.
I read through various posts, and simply gave up and did a total re-load of Win 7 and added WLM for my friend.

Was there ever a final resolution of the SP1 problem?

I fear SP2 on my computer with WM loaded.
