WinMail 64bit

A admin pm'd me them last time but my pm's were removed some how. I tried what you sent me but was unable to get it to work.
When importing a 32bit Vista WinMail to a 64bit Windows 7 OS, it is essential to delete the entire original 64bit Windows Mail folder from the 64bit Program files, after first making a back-up copy.

Then import the entire 32bit Vista Windows Mail folder, not just the msoe.dll file.

And it must be imported to the 32bit Program files in Windows 7, which is named Program files (x86), as can be seen as in this picture, which can be enlarged by clicking on it.

This means you will have to take ownership of every file in the original Windows 7 Windows Mail folder to be able to delete them. I found that Take Ownership worked with single files, but not with folders. So I had to take full control manually as shown in Footnote 2 of the guide.

Also, you will still need to do all the other steps of running the download regedit file WinMailEdit.reg; removing the attributes with the Run command: attrib -s -h WinMail.exe, etc.

Good luck, PB

OK did you run the WinMailEdit.reg download file before importing and trying to open WinMail.exe as a shortcut?

In any case, delete both the msoe.dll file & WinMail.exe files from the imported Windows Mail folder. Reboot your PC.

Run the WinMailEdit.reg download file again. Then again copy and paste the 32bit Vista Windows Mail files msoe.dll file & WinMail.exe into the imported Windows Mail folder in the 32bit program files. Send the WinMail.exe to desktop as shortcut. See if this helps? You will still need to run the remove attirbutes command.

Cheers PB

Yeah, unfortunately I've pretty much run out of options. There's no question the msoe.dll is the key.

The only other possibility might be if you're running another email client? I had to remove WinMailLive before I could get Windows Mail to operate.

I think the only way around it will be to get the 64bit Vista Windows Mail files, but sorry can't help with that one.

Maybe give it one last go by deleting everything, running a registry clean, and starting from scratch with a clean slate, doing it exactly as per instructions in the amended guide, except that you will import all Vista Windows Mail files?

No worries. Just sorry couldn't get it working.

When I was doing trials on this, first time round I tried to open the WinMail.exe before running the WinMailEdit.reg file, and it wouldn't work. From memory I think it was only the WinMail.exe I had to recopy from Vista to fix it.

If you've still got a copy of the original Windows Mail, it might be worth a shot by getting rid of all the 32bit Windows Mail files; putting back the original 64bit Windows Mail folder in the 64bit program files, and just pasting the 32bit Vista Windows Mail "msoe.dll" file to replace the original 64bit one. It's a long shot, but who knows, if you feel like going to all the effort, eh?

Hope you get it sorted. Cheers PB
