Windows 7: Windows Live Mail - error 0x80040609

22 Jun 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Windows Live Mail - error 0x80040609

Yes! - this seems to be a real popular problem round the forums.

Intel / Win7x64, resources are OK.

Following the common spine of these threads WLM was uninstalled, Reg entries removed by hand, the store folder copied away to a safe place, no beta was ever installed, several reboots, no Norton, no Mcafee, etc, deleted the two LM folders in Program Data & program Files, ran zapmessenger.exe,

Tried to install WLE 2009 (as this may install core files WLE 2011 requires but cannot find if WLE / WLM has been removed) with no success. Why? wlsetup-custom.exe finds remnants of WLE / WLM 2011 still hiding somewhere on the disk.

Like so many others nothing allows a re-installation of WLM.

Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Attempting to install MAIL.MSI so as to just install the mail element fails because there seems to be a newer version of WLM present.

Where is this information stored? Every delete and uninstall trick has been played; I cannot find any references to WLM on the HDD.
