I really do not see the requirement of Windows Mail. If you have Windows 7 then it is much more worthwhile to try Windows Live Mail 2011 that comes with the Windows Live Essentials Package. Or better, use Mozilla Thunderbird, which is much more lightweight....

But whatever, the tutorial's great !!!

The main reason why I like Windows Mail is because it's lightweight and easy to use and as I used Windows XP before updating to Windows 7, Windows Mail feels and functions much like outlook express that I used on XP.

winmail crashes after installing sp1 for win 7

That''s the problem i am facing right now,after installing this ***** servicepack 1.

Since there are a lot of ways,which lead to Rome,

i fixed my winmail on 2 laptops win 7 hp 32 bits and 1 desktop Windows 7 ult. 64 bits

simly by renaming the existing winmail program files to winmail-old and then

copy-ing the winmail files (with the updated msoe.dll file) from a Vista source to

the pc's...and using them..as described..

An easy way,which works great even after the killer update KB978542..

But now i seem to be stuck..whenever i install the sp 1 it destroys my beloved

WinMail ..i like it and comments about windows live mail are not constructive in

any way..

Well,needless to say i tried to fix it by following the outstanding tutorial,but it did

not work for me.Maybe it's too complicated and i am a moron..it's possible,but not

very likely ..

I used system restore and everthing is working likes allways,but i can't install the

the servicepack yet,for i have to have a solution before downloading it...

Any suggestions are welcome......

Today I installed Windows 7 SP1 and my Windows Mail disappeared. Originally, I installed from this site, following every steps, so I did it again, and when I finished, I got back my Windows Mail, with my contacts and emails that I did not deleted. I am so happy, so I recommend everyone that happens this, to do everything again. At the end, I did not find the WinMail.exe but I did the "Footnote 4" and found that I forgot to UnstickHide protected operating”… Ones I did, I found WinMail.exe and now Windows Mail is PERFECT.
I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bits SP1

Please help me, I didn't find any solution yet.

I want to install SP1 and I use WinMail on Windows 7.
I don't know exactly which patch I applied, I remember copying the msoe.dll from an archive I extracted, later I applied some registry file to be able to open eml files

now I can't install SP1 because of an 80004005 error, it has to do with the winmail (mail_core_something)

3 things I tried: deleted the registry entry that has to do with mail_core in the sidebyside/winners part of the registry
I replaced all winmail files by files from another "unpatched" Windows 7 PC
I ran the /scanmfc command, which found errors that couldn't be fixed

how do I install SP1 now?

Thanks for any help!

1. You should NOT move either the 32 or 64 bit Vista Windows Mail folder into your Windows 7 operating system. Doing so will cause problems further down the track and stop WinMail from working.

2. The only Vista file needed is the msoe.dll and a download button will provide you with the 64bit version of this file in Step 4, Page 1 of this tutorial.

3. Re creating a shortcut to the desktop to run WinMail,exe ... if you have done the first 3 Steps of the tutorial correctly, the latter part of Step 4 tells you how to send the WinMail.exe file, (from the Windows Mail folder in the 64bit Program Files), to the desktop as a shortcut.

Normally the WinMail.exe file is invisible, but executing Step 2 in the tutorial makes it visible. It Step 2 fails to make it visible, then use Footnote 4 to make it visible.

Update: Ooopps! Sorry. The edit in your last post just above this one was not visible when I posted this reply. PB
Hi PB,
Do you have a download link for Service Pack 1, x86? It's listed in my auto updates but will not install from there. The first time I tried, it downloaded to 31 percent, stayed there for about two hours with TrustedInstaller choking down system the whole time. I tried again for five hours with no joy. I hate to download the entire package considering the auto update listed it for me as only being 61mb but I thought I'd give it a try

alright ... I've searched for the named component in the cbs log file, deleted its registry entry

the SP1 setup gauge was at the end already when it finished with a new error:
800736B3 ERROR_SXS_ASSEMBLY_NOT_FOUND

but I can't tell the cause of this problem this time D:

edit: after I ran the sp prep tool again, the 80004005 error occours again (the one about x86_microsoft-windows-mail-core-dll_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_585517a9869db81d)

I`m afraid your only option is to do a fresh install of Windows 7 and them install SP1 and then put in Windows Mail.

I did it this way and Windows Mail works perfectly.

Unless someone can provide a link to the new version of the DLL , it will be necessary to obtain the latest Microsoft Update "MSU" file, then manually extract the latest version of the MSOE.DLL, in order to restore "safe" operation of Windows Mail within Windows7

Look here to find the relevent version of the "Vista" DLL that you will require to copy over to Windows 7 MS10-030: Vulnerability in Outlook Express and Windows Mail could allow remote code execution

Download the MSU from here
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-030 - Critical: Vulnerability in Outlook Express and Windows Mail Could Allow Remote Code Execution (978542)

For information on extracting MSU files, look here...
How to extract msu/msp/msi/exe files on the command line WindowsWiki
Sorry but that stuff about extracting the file using the command line is a bit beyond me.
I've downloaded the file and looked at the contents using winrar. There are several winmail .dll files but I'm not sure which one I need. Please see screenshot attachment. Or have I even got right files?
Thanks.
