Question as I'm relatively new to the world of x64 systems. There is a Windows Mail folder in both Program Files and Program Files (x86) - which one do I take ownership of and fiddle with?

I'm now using Windows 7 RTM (7600).

Forgive me if this has already been answered, I couldn't find it.

Sorry, failed to notice that.

I came straight from XP SP3 (Outlook Express) to Windows 7, hence NO previous Windows Mail (Vista), is it still possible to install Windows Mail in Windows 7 x64?

Thanks.

Hello Ben,

Yes. You can copy the needed files from a friends Vista installation to use in your Windows 7.

Posting these files is not allowed here since it violates Microsoft's distribution policy and against the forum rules.

Thanks Brink, I have that folder already, but when I run the WinMail.exe, it kept telling me the folder didn't exist? If I hit "OK" I got error message and if I hit "cancel" I also got error message!


Update:
Got it to work now, I forgot to remove the original "Windows Mail" folder in Programs Files.

Thanks for your kind words. Regarding the windows mail issue, it isn't listed among the default programs so the links above don't seem to apply.
