Desperate for windows mail!

I have two vista machines, unfortunately both are running 32 bit operatiing systems. Does anyone have a 64 bit version of windows mail they could email me?? That would be so appreciated!

Please read post 317 and the download link for Windows 64 bit Win Mail is only a few posts above this, post 342.

When you try to remove or replace any files in Windows Mail in the Windows 7 installation, it will not allow you to do this. By installing Take Ownership, if you right click a file and then click "Take Ownership" in the drop down menu, it will allow you to remove the file, or paste a replacement file over the top of it.

If you haven't got Take Ownership you have to manually take full control of the file and that's quite a process. See how to manually take full control of files in Footnote 1 of Post 317. Post 320 explains the modifications in Post 317.

If both your Vista and Window 7 are 32bit you don't need a 64bit version of the Vista Windows Mail file "msoe.dll".

Just import the "msoe.dll" from Vista Windows Mail to Windows Mail in your 32bit Windows Mail in Windows 7.

Or is your Win7 64bit?

I was hoping for some advice. I followed instructions to activate Windows Mail....and when I click on the shortcut....I just get that spinning timepiece.....the mail program never launches. I did do one thing wrong on the attempt....and that is...I did not make a shortcut to the .exe file...but clicked on it....Once I restarted the computer....I then made the shortcut file....but all have the same results....which is...Windows Mail never starts. Do I need to take all the files back off.....? and put the Old file back in place. How do I start over?
HELP!!

I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, but I'd suggest starting over again. Remove all the Vista Windows Mail files, and restore the original Windows 7 Windows Mail files. Then follow the steps in post 317 exactly as shown.

In that post it says that if you click on the WinMail.exe before running the regedit file WinMailZip.reg in step 1, it will mess up the installation. Could try replacing the WinMail.exe as a workaround, but probably need to start from scratch.

Good luck. PB

Acquiring Windows Mail for Windows 7

What if you don't have Vista to copy from?

I'm new to Windows 7, but know I don't want Windows LIVE Mail. Is there a way I can still get Windows Mail on my new computer?

Can anyone help?
