Hello Mehul, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You may me able to use Default Programs to make that program the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well.

You can also do it manually in this part of Default Programs by selecting the file extension, then selecting the program to open it with by default.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

None of this works for me

Hello,

I have a new computer running on Windows 7 onto which the retailer had already installed Windows Live Mail, and after trying a number of other free email programs, I have come to like Live Mail the best. However, it does not open .eml files no matter what I try doing.

When I go to the Tools and Options choice, it does not have .eml to highlight, this is already my default program, and I'm totally lost about this other idea with the LI class step. Never heard of it and don't know where to find it.

Please help if you can. Thanks.

Hello LavenderDaisy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

While in WLM, click on Tools (ALT+M + Show menu bar) and Options. Next double check to make sure that both Make Default buttons have been clicked on to gray them out. Afterwards see if .eml files open with WLM.

Hi Shawn,

I'm sorry to report that it doesn't help. it continues to tell me I have no program associated with opening the file.

Ok. No problem.

Double check in Default Programs to make sure that the .eml file extenstion has Windows Live Mail (C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe) set as it's "Current Default" program. If not, then click on change program, and make it so.

That's strange. The default format for email files in WLM is .eml. Try uninstalling WLM and then reinstall from Download details: Windows Live Mail Save the file to disk and then run the installer. Note that this will also ask to install other items as well, so just select WLM.

Brink, as I said earlier, there is no .eml in my Default Programs.

Dwarf, if I uninstall and reinstall, will that automatically place .eml into my Default Programs?

Sorry, I didn't get that from your previous posts somehow.

Are you able to right click on a EML file and use Open With to manually select the Windows Live Mail (C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe), and check the "Always Use...." box?
