dear endeavor,
1- according to
in photo 1-the command ended and you have to reboot (see last line in DOS window photo= step 5 in the -
A-do you have to close the DOS window and reboot manually or it does automatically?
(as far as i remember you have to do it manually)
B-only after the reboot you launch WM for the first time ?
C- according to step 5 in the - there is no mentioning to reboot the machine, further more there is step 6 create shortcut to what is the correct order?
step5>reboot>step6> launch WM>step7 (is needed? )Restart your system and launch Windows Mail ?
2-About the the Search & Views bar"bug" i reported earlier . so settings as un-check those two settings
Search Box & Show All Messages are not display, BUT they reappear back after i use "send to " menu.
e.g- i send photo/any other file from my desktop by right click on it>send to>mail recipient.
Now after message sent , when i open windows mail again the view and search bar reappear back.
can you check it please?

dear prukeyhi

My my you are very persistent..

..the answers are:

A = reboot manually

B = Yes

C = Step 5 of the "ReWinMail_tutorial.html" and what is listed to do, implies to also do what you are running in the Command Prompt window, which at the bottom you see it says to Reboot now, and so that's what you do, which is still in step 5.
After you reboot, just as it says you now create the shortcut to the desktop.


2 = That's very interesting, okay, now you have finally explained your problem with ''good accurate details'' this time - and Yes, in Win7, I can, reproduce what you say happens now too.

..To double check this though, I just booted to Vista and went to Layout and unchecked the Search & Views bar, and they are gone and stay gone each time I open WinMail.
Next test, when I click on a jpg and 'Send To' ..and send the email.... ...LoL... ...and guess what, it does the same thing in Vista - the Search and Views bars now re-appear again!
And so after-all's not a bug in the Win7 WinMail re-instate process, but it's a bug right from and within Vista itself !

Bottom line, it's a Vista bug then, and there is nothing I can fix; you are just going to have to live with it.

Those little Search & Views bars showing is so minor though my dear prukeyhi... you have better things to focus on in life.. ..but I do recognize and applaud your persistence; you remind me of me
