Is there a 32bit section of 7 that I should use?


Sorry, I'm not an expert on these things



Thanks
In 7 you have two program files in explorer. x86 means 32 bit. Hope this helps.

Update: I managed to get Windows Mail back in the Default Programs control panel by replacing en-US folder with the one from Vista. The Windows Mail(News) is still missing in action.
Unfortunately can't help with WinMail(News) in Default Programs. The en-US folder from WinMail in Vista contains both WinMail.exe.mui & WindowsMailGadget.exe.mui.

I've got the whole en-US folder in Windows Mail in program files in Win7, which includes WinMail.exe.mui, but only WinMail shows up in Default Programs control panel.

Let me know if you find a solution. Good luck. PB

The software which is available by clicking here, is a Winzip file containing the full 32 bit Vista version of the Windows Mail folder. By clicking the word "here", which is highlighted in light blue, it will take you to a free download site.

Once you get there, click the "free download" option, which is on the left side of the web page, about half way down the page. Wait 60 seconds for it to load, then click it again to download the file to your computer. Don't run the file, but save it to your desktop.

Once it's downloaded, open the Winzip file named "Import Mail.zip" and extract the folder it contains named "Windows Mail" to your desktop. This folder is the full 32 bit Windows Mail folder from Vista.

This folder should be now be put into the 32 bit program files of your Windows 7 operating system. This is the folder named "x86 Program Files" as pointed out to you by myzr7 in his reply two up from this reply and shown in his picture. To view the picture in a bigger size, just click on it with your mouse.

However, to make it work, you will first need to delete the entire original Windows Mail folder from your 64 bit Program Files. That's the "Program Files" also pointed out to you by myzr7. The Techspot guide found by clicking here will tell you how to delete this.

Good luck. PB

Could you please tell me how to put an embedd jpeg image into the middle of the text of a post so that it can be opened in a sub-window, as you did in your response to t8769?

I know how to make a link to a picture saved to an upload site like TinyPic. And I know how to add a picture as an attachment. But how do you make them open?

This is an attachment of your original picture which I saved to my desktop.

This is an embedded copy of your pic from TinyPic upload site.




I'd be very grateful for any help you can give in knowing how to make them open as it did in your post?

Cheers Bernie (Poppa Bear)

I know it seems complicated at first.

May I suggest you start right from scratch using the guide from Techspot and work through it slowly step by step.

In a nutshell, what you're trying to do is:

1. Delete all the existing Windows Mail files already in Windows 7.

2. Copy the Windows Mail folder from Vista program files.

3. Paste the Windows Mail folder from Vista program files into the x86 Program files in your Windows 7.

4. Enable email files to be opened that are saved to your desktop.

It's not a big deal other than the fact I can't figure out why,lol. I've done a search in regedit with two laptops side by side but haven't found anything worth changing in the win 7 setup. Each had a couple of entries that were different but in my opinion had no impact on making it show in the control panel. Anyway, the Win Mail (News) works fine and is the default.

poppa bear, this is what I use. Snipping tool snap shot of anything on your screen. then save it to my docs, then attach it using paper clip icon.

Thanks for the info. I had to test it out, I'm used to the old way of right click send to image shack and retrieve the link for posting. Does this method auto resize it to fit within the post?

The size of a snipping tool screen shot has never been to big for me to post, using the paper clip method. Hope that helps.
