Windows 7: Windows Mail

Thanks, Endeavor, I did get typical warning prompt about changing registry, and also the verification prompt that I had changed the registry, so felt good about success on that. I can always verify that the key is in registry when I have time.
Now, I may be breaking rules(hijacking?) or in wrong thread, but I've always had a problem in Windows Mail that I've just lived with, much like the not highlighting a word to spell check, but didn't see it mentioned in your list of known problems. So I wanted to ask if there's any workaround to not being able to click on urls within Windows Mail. It starts a whole string of Internet Explorer errors that you must close out and you never do get to the link. Is this another thing you just must live with, using WinMail? I have all my defaults set to WinMail.
Most importantly, thanks for helping me get my beloved WinMail back!

You're welcome for the previous help.
Make time please and don't put off checking the validity of your reg file that you merged please, it's important!
If it is not exactly like I mentioned, don't delete it, but I need to know what it is you merged, as we don't want to cause unintended problems, and that is Exactly why we always stick to the rule of having people running the Tutorial to fix things, and not post random fixes for the end user to perform, which if they don't do it right can cause other unintentional problems.

About the new problem you bring to light about clicking IE links within WinMail. I've never seen or heard of that problem in Windows 7 & WinMail, and I use WinMail on Windows 7 every single day! for the last many many years. Mine works fine and so does everyone else I know that uses it clicking links within. And so it seems whatever the issue on your computer is unique to you, but is not on anyone else's computer. I will have to think about it for a bit how to help you properly.
Naturally don't click links in it for now if it causes problems, if I can figure out a fix I will let you know, but I need to see the problem to be able to figure out what it is and how to fix it.
Did it ever work right for you?

First to resolve registry entry--following that tree in regedit, I'm not seeing the exact thing I thought I copied/pasted--there's 2 mail core entries in registry, following that string to that point, but they don't match the rest of string--one says 'mail.core resources, the other just mail core, and neither have 'dll' or matching string of numbers/letters.
Is there a way to find what I added, or even a search function in registry?

I asked for you to look inside the anything.reg file you made is all, see post# 1691 last paragraph for task, definitely did not ask you to traipse through the actually registry.

Also if you would please not to include so much quote in replies if it's not necessary, thank you Terri.

Sorry, ok, now I did what you had asked, and even making it full screen, it's in 2 lines, the second line starting after the dash after core...but maybe you're referring to the bracket--yes the { part is on same line as HkEY string. Sorry if I'm still not answering your question, but I am looking at it as you advised in 1691, at least...no more traipsing thru registry for me!

No you're not answering me I'm not sure what you mean, and I don't know how to ask any better than that. It's so blessed simple. I'm sorry, it's not your fault I'm not blaming you, but all of this WinMail procedure is for Advanced and or seasoned computer users only really. I don't mean to make it sound complicated, it's not.
Let's try it this way with an image, if your anyname.reg file when you edit to look at it, looks exactly like this (no line wrap around) then you are fine. (click image to open full if necessary)

Mine is broken into 2 lines as I mentioned before, second line beginning after 'core-' this is looking at it as instructed at anyname.reg file, edit to look at.
BTW, I do have word wrap checked in notepad--is that the problem?

Ok, at risk of oversimplifying, taking word wrap off does indeed have everything in one line when I view it this way, and I believe you said it wd go thru as one line even w/word wrap. So, I think it's just my viewing it where it's broken up, hopefully?

There are so many little basic things with understanding computer operations, and implications, and it seems we are touching many of the basics already.
WinMail re-instating is really only for Advanced users, and I mean no offense - you are great.
But yes I suppose one way is if you use no wrap and it's exactly as shown in that image I posted, and was merged as that value shown, you are fine.

I don't know what's wrong with your other WinMail link within email opening problem, it's only pertinent to your setup so must be something you did amiss along the way, and I'm afraid you won't be able to trouble shoot it with your understandings, and I imagine if you have no backups, etc, etc, so perhaps I've done all I can here.
At least you have WinMail itself working, and good for you, you fixed it fine.

The last paragraphs of my post #1693 still are as it is.

I'm sorry for not thinking about the word-wrap setting the first time I checked as you asked--the 2 entries are indeed alike in every respect, mine and yours.
I do have everything backed up now, and will also do a separate back-up of all my emails.
The not being able to click on links has always been true since I installed WM w/the tutorial a few years ago; I was just so thrilled to have WM, and didn't realize it was a problem unique to me, but thought it was just something that didn't work like the highlighting of words for spell-check. I suspect it must be a mistake in my default settings and wish I could compare. Also, is there an IE setting that needs to be changed? I do remember at one time I changed a setting and Windows Mail disappeared, but fortunately I had set the appropriate restore point before messing w/it and so got everything back.
I do thank you for all your help and sorry you feel my 'understandings' make me unable to trouble shoot it. Thanks, Terri
