Windows 7: Windows Mail

Vista/Win7/Win8/Win10 (x86/x64)
 
 

Hi Bill,

I think it could be pared down even more, all we need for both x86 & 64 entries (one entry for each folder key) in there is this:

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\x86_microsoft-windows-mail-core-dll_31bf3856ad364e35_none_67a2bdecbd5f60de]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\amd64_microsoft-windows-mail-core-dll_31bf3856ad364e35_none_c3c1597075bcd214]

..because everything else extraneous under each of those x86 & x64 folder keys is removed with it when the top folder key is deleted. This will take care of any visual esthetic confusion of some people having different version'd updates that I have seen already, which in this case will not matter since when the top folder keys goes - all else within it does too. I've tested it too

~~~~~~~~~~

Yes I remember well our conversation about SFC, and since you had x64 this is why you didn't see it happen for you. Now you will/would

Just headed off to work,
TTYL

Because it was brought and talked about here, I just wanted to briefly touch on this after some bench testing.
For Windows 8 & Windows 10 (x86/x64) running sfc /scannow doesn't just change one WinMail program file like it does on Windows 7, but it changes almost all of them, depending, which of course breaks it.
Also it does not seem to be just one SideBySide registry entry that I could remove to stop it like on Windows 7, and I tried a few of them with no results, but in the end I just decided for simplicity sake and the fact that for Win8/10 I don't want to change what SFC does anyway!
And so since the only thing SFC does to break WinMail is replace various files in its program folder, then it's So Much Quicker & Easier and more appropriate (for Win8/10 users) just to re-take ownership of the Windows 8 or Windows 10 folder, delete it, and copy in its place a saved copy of your working one. That got WinMail working every time on Win8/10 - tested

I posted this similar information over in the Eight Forums Here, and importantly I've edited my Win8/10 install instructions on its first post:

According to the post above yours, The Windows 10 instructions would be the same as Windows 8. Note the phrase "For Windows 8 & Windows 10 (x86/x64)"

It might not ever be posted to the Ten Forums about it, because it's really not supported and old... ...not that it's supported here in Seven Forums or on the Eight Forums either, but maybe moreso not on the Ten Forums yet.

However, you can find all the information on how to do it, on the Windows 8 Forum: Here

Dear andjayik,
If it was done exactly you would not have that error, however please in order to keep this thread only for WinMail for Win7 because WinMail for Windows 8 installation is surly different, so...

...Let's keep all Windows 8 (or 10) WinMail related messages over in the Eight Forum please, and thank you.

Also, no one should attempt using WinMail on Windows 8/10 unless they are self-sufficient and very computer savvy, thank you!

Also remember, doing so is Not Supported, thank you!
