Windows 7: Link word 2007 to wlm 2009 - using win 7/64

Link word 2007 to wlm 2009 - using win 7/64

I have just upped from XP which has served me well for a very long time to win 7.. I have to say i am surprised by the number of issues on systems which should be well settled down.

Most of the issues I have been able to resolve. One was to download from WLM 2011 to 2009 as 2011 had issues linking to photos (not a fan of one drive) and my trusty canon MP610.

here is the problem I now have.

I am unable to “send” a word 2007 doc to wlm 2009 (using Win 7/64). We get an error regarding microsoft exchange, three times before it will successfully link.

I have seen the following suggestion, and before tinkering with the registry I just wanted to confirm where it should go, as my registry entries appear somewhat different see below.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows Messaging Subsystem
The right pane should contain/look like the following:
(Default) = Windows Live Mail

Where as my registry has the following, notice the extra key, and the fact that my system has extra keys referring to MS Outlook (should I remove these?)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Messaging Subsystem]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Messaging Subsystem\MSMapiApps]
(default)="Windows Live Mail"
"outstore.dll"="Microsoft Outlook"
"SearchProtocolHost.exe"="Microsoft Outlook"

Thanks for yr advice

I'm not sure why you're not using office outlook :/
2009 and now 2011 live mail is unsupported only 2012 is and even it is going through updates.
Windows Live Mail 2012 requires an update to keep using it

Thank you for suggestion, and a reasonable question.

Bluntly I don't like MS Outlook, I've experienced too many issues with it over the years, From Office 2000, all the way through to 2010. Over complicated, I just like the simple life, that was the reason I stuck with OE all these years.

If you don't mind I'd like to solve the problem with WLM which I'm sure has been fixed as 2007 has been around for years as well as WLM 2009 - for at least 2 years these were the standard products for retail client email solutions (Outlook was too expensive for most); webmail isn't practical where multiple email addresses are used.

Hope that answers your question?

Yes I had heard that.

I would try to fix the registry/WLM issue - I understand there are fixes, but before tinkering with the registry I would like to have some definitive info as what is required and where.

But thank you for your advice.

Is there anyone out there that can advise me on what changes need to be made to the registry and where.
Many thanks, and Merry Christmas
