Windows 7: Can't import Outlook Express into Windows Live Mail

I can't find a run option on live essentials page

I can't find an option to 'run', only download, on the live essentials mail download page. This gives me the install icon on my desktop and there was no automatic import when I ran that. Can you provide any guidance on this?

Where did you find a 'run' option on the windows live essentials: site? The link in your post does not take me to a 'get started' site.

I only get a download option which asks me to save the download. Running that does not convert any of my outlook express stuff.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Transferring emails from Outlook Xpress to WLM

I had the tech guys transfer my emails from Outlook Express to WLM. I can see the messages in the imported folders and who they're from however when I try to click on them they will not open and I get the message that the contents of the messages can't be found. This is for all of them... Why did this happen and is there anything I can do about this? Thanks!
