I just tried that, but for me it doesn't work .
I really do not understand MS. People want to use their software and they're still not satisfied .

I guess you made sure you put it in the normal 64bit Program files, not the 32bit Program files(x86)?

Yes, I did. Replacing the file wasn't possible, so I did the takeownership stuff again, but no succes. Do I need to work through the whole process (page 1) again?

When you say no success, do you mean you replaced the existing msoe.dll and it still didn't work; or do you mean you couldn't replace it?

If you were unable to replace it, try taking manual control as per Footnote 1 of the main tutorial on page 1 of this thread.

I did take manually control and was then able to replace the file, but WM did not work.

I know this sounds basic, but have you rebooted your PC since doing it?

It seems that simply replacing msoe.dll fixes it in some environments but not others. I'll see what I can find out in this respect.

In post No 519 here weaver0 had the same problem with two 32bit systems. By using the updated msoe.dll it fixed the problem for him. However, from reading your previous post it seems you have already tried using the zipped updated msoe.dll.

The only other thing I can suggest would be to reload the original Windows Mail folder in the normal 64bit Program files and then do the tutorial from the top, but use the updated msoe.dll, not the one shown in the tutorial.

Let me know how you get on.

I had to fix two 32-bit installs just this afternoon, so this statement is untrue. Fortunately, replacing the msoe.dll file with the post-KB978542 Vista 32-bit (6.0.6002.18197) file fixes it (even without a reboot/safe mode as others have stated - kill the winmail.exe process). I'll attach this file.

I am still trying to find the 64-bit file... Most of my clients have moved to Windows 7, so don't know if I can get it soon.

found the patched vista 64 file
Are those patched files now on page 1?

Nothing wrong with basic, a simple reboot did the trick. Why didn't I think of that myself? Thanks very much!

Someone on another forum suggested that OEspamfilter.dat should also be copied across from an up to date Vista...something to with the Junk Filter...? Sorry but I'm not too technical when it comes to this sort of thing so I wonder Mark if you have any comments on that?

Hi Ex_Brit, re:

No, not to my knowledge but will speak to Brink about getting them on there.
