I don't know what you mean by "search line". After downloading the installer file you must run it and click on "Choose the programs you want to install" to see the various programs that you can install. Then uncheck the programs you don't want but leave "Mail" checked.

I believe he's referring to the Search box in the Start menu. He isn't seeing any results because Windows Live Mail isn't installed on his PC.
