Thanks for the headsup. I'll have to put it on 'The List' of things I'll eventually get around to investigating.

Would this cause the shortcut to just disappear?

Ran SP1 on my gf's machine last week and today her Win Mail took a ripe ol dump and I am having difficulty restoring it.

Ran repair in Add/Remove and it appears to have come back, but will this be temporary?

It shouldn't have caused it to disappear, just 'break'.

SP1 breaks WinMail altogether and can be 'repaired' by following the advice in the 1st post in this thread. It would have broken immediately rather than a week later. Are you sure you are using WinMail (from Vista)?

There is no Add/Remove in Win 7, nor is there a Repair option. Did you remove the SP1 update from Programs and Features?

ok uninstall/change - repair

This is Windows Live (I guess I mistaken winmail for it - but there was an mui file that said Winmail.exe.mui in Windows Live Mail - I think, her machine isn't available to check.

Really weird, I thought the shortcut just dropped out of her Nexus Dock (sometimes this happens) - but there were no other shortcuts to be found on the machine.

Regardless it is now back to operating. But Win Live Mail was completely missing from the Win Live menu before I ran the repair.

I would reinstall SP1 and then reinstall WLM using the latest version available. SP1 contains security fixes and updates and should not be skipped. Also, some future updates will require that SP1 be installed. Don't forget to backup important files.
