Hi endeavor & Slartybart. Long time since my last post. I had a moment of panic yesterday when I kinda lost my WM after running sfc scannow. Still had it listed in Start menu but nothing happened when I clicked on it. Then I remembered that sfc was discussed last year when I almost lived here so calmed down & was gonna come back to find that info. But had a couple other small glitches to work on 1st so did System Restore for them & by golly, got my mail back.

Thanks and one more thing: Will WM under 7 now be seen as the default mail client for sending links, etc? I know it would not early on.

Hi grits,

After running the Tutorial, running SFC should not affect WM since that problem was fixed already as you & I spoke of previously in this thread Here

To fix the problem after the fact, you could run the whole Tutorial again to fix it.
or
Just merging the WinMailEdit.reg of the itself from the procedure will fix the problem by also removing the registry entry that's affecting it. I don't think running the complete WinMailEdit.reg will affect any of your personal settings at all.
...or
if you want to be sure it doesn't then if you wanted to create your own reg file to just remove the keys that are responsible for this SFC issue then these are the entries below.
Code:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\x86_microsoft-windows-mail-core-dll_31bf3856ad364e35_none_67a2bdecbd5f60de]
@="6.1"
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\x86_microsoft-windows-mail-core-dll_31bf3856ad364e35_none_67a2bdecbd5f60de\6.1]
"6.1.7600.16385"=hex:01
@="6.1.7600.16385"
or,
..since it's working after your restore then leave it alone; however, as is, since somehow those registry keys have been re-entered (most likely from some updates you've done) but if you run SFC again it will again break WM again until you remove them, and so if you ever want to run SFC then you will have to do one of the above - any of the above will fix it and they will all accomplish the same thing, choose the ones that's simplest and right for you.

It should if made the default email program, but there's no guarantee since it's no longer support in Windows 7.

After properly running the tutorial to reinstate WM, then yes it will be seen as default.

The only thing that can change that is installing other email clients along with WM then they can take over.

The dell repair man had to do a fresh install of Windows, so except for reinstall of adobe acrobat no other programs reinstalled. Is it obvious to anyone please!! Sorry if this is not how you post but i have never done it before. Thanks in advance.
I would assume janmor it's because as the instructions say on page 1 you need to be sure that your Win74umsZip.zip was downloaded to your Downloads folder, and that's where you need to unzip it so that when you run those commands it can find what it needs in the right place. Follow the directions to the T of which should only take a few minutes to complete.

Works great
I was going to post on this subject when I saw your post. First, Do I understand that you were able to use Outlook Express on Windows 7?

My need, as upgrading from XP to 7, is to utilize Outlook Express to grab Excel attachments in a Control System as Outlook could not do so. I heard that Outlook Express would not work with Windows 7.

Thank you.

No, that's an impossible feat. That user was mistaken. Outlook Express became obsolete with the introduction of Vista. What the user means is they now have what OE became: Windows Mail.
Or they decided to install Windows Live Mail which is the easiest solution.
