Register with Dropbox and then login.
At the top of the first page are some tabs, click the files tab.
In the list of files you will see Windows Mail, click on that and you see will the two Windows Mail types.
Install Dropbox first, it's on the same page bottom left.

Hope this works.

I use Dropbox myself; I have an account and the software installed but the process you describe won't work for me. Logging in just takes me to my own account.
I have uploaded my Win Mail 64 bit files here, including two reg files for making things work, mentioned elsewhere in this thread. Let's try that!
Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire

Edit: just tried the link, seems to work; you have to dl the files one by one. good luck!

In the modified method mentioned in post No 317 two pages back, you only need to import one file "msoe.dll" from Vista Windows Mail folder.

This post has got everything you will need. Also in it is an attached registry edit file: "WinMailEdit.reg". When this is run it allows .eml email files to be opened on the desktop; disables the WinMail startup splash screen; and removes an x86 registry key that causes conflicts when running updates or system file checks. It also shows how to remove WinMail attributes which can also cause conflicts.

Last but not least, it has a method of enabling Win Calendar in Windows Mail.

Thanks for pointing out that post Poppa Bear. I'll certainly bookmark it for future reference in case of a fresh install. My Win Mail has been working great for some time thanks to this thread. Was just anxious to help out the poster who needed the 64 bit files. I was in that situation myself as I was upgrading from Vista 32 bit so had no 64 bit files to copy. My point about the dropbox link is that it doesn't work; when you log in to dropbox you only get your own files. To share the file you need to email a link to the person.
My mediafire link however, does work, and if like me you hadn't got your Vista files wouldn't you need all of them? [I'm asking cos I don't know!]

Hey, PB

Poppa Bear,
Thanks for the effort you, GregS, and Ex_Brit have put in so far --spent all day reading through the saga. I hope your patience hasn't run out yet, because I'd appreciate some help wading through the Plan you have outlined in Post 317.

I'm running 64 bit Windows 7. I have deleted all remnants of the dreadful 'Live' suite.
When I try to run your WinMailEdit.zip link in Step 1, I get a message box, titled "Registry Editor", cryptically saying "Cannot import.
WinMailEdit.reg: Not all data was sucessfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or othyer processes."

I ran the attrib command line in Step 2. Does that automatically take care of both versions of WinMail.exe (that is, I seem to have two(?), one in Program Files\ and one in Program File (x86)\Windows Mail).

The file viewing options you describe in Step 3 (Windows Mail ==> Tools ==> Folder Options ==> View Tab do not seem to be available to me within the Windows Mail window --I don't have any "Tools" option on the window (can I add that somehow??) I can accomplish the same thing through Contol Panel ==> Folder Options ==> View Tab; not a big deal.

I now have both the 64-bit and 32-bit (Vista) versions of msoe.dll, but I'm reluctant to blithely drag them into their respective folders because of your admonition "*Warning: It is critical to do this before carrying out steps (4) & (5)." in Step 1, since WinMailEdit.zip evidently did not run right.

Did I infer correctly that you have not actually tried this procedure on a 64-bit machine? Do you suppose all 64-bit stuff can be deleted and only the Program Files (x86) stuff be monkeyed with?? Or perhaps vice-versa with my 64-bit system?

Cheers,
George

Unfortunately I haven't come across this error message before. It might possibly have something to do with WinMailLive. When you uninstalled WinMailLive, did you use the Control Panel/ Programs & Features option to remove it?

It sounds like some files from a previous application are still running. Try doing a registry clean with something like Glary Utilites, (totally freeware), and rebooting your PC. Then run WinMailEdit.reg again.

Even if it doesn't alter all the registry files, it may still allow sufficient to make it work. This regedit does the following functions: 1. Allows email .eml files to open on desktop. 2. Disables WinMail splash screen on startup. 3. Removes an x86 registry key to prevent conflicts. It's hard to know which one is not being edited.

In any case, once you've run a registry clean, and re-booted, finish the other steps and see if it will work.

Yes, that takes care of both.

Hope this helps. Cheers PB

No, you only need the one file, "msoe.dll" from the Vista Windows Mail folder, as per my post 317 a few pages back. That was the whole point of the modified method. You don't need to import the whole Vista Windows Mail folder. However, you still need access to the Vista Windows Mail folder to get that one file from inside the folder.

If you have a read of post 320 in this thread, it explains the reasons why the modified version was created and exactly what it does. In a nutshell it makes the whole process easier and less open to conflicts.

Thanks kaj. That's all that is needed from 64bit Vista Windows Mail folder to make WinMail work in 64bit Win7. The rest's in my post 317.
