Thanks for your response. In the end I searched this thread and found the exact solution, from Ebenezer https://www.sevenforums.com/1264388-post958.html

Followed his steps exactly and it worked like a charm. Had already tried all the other methods usually suggested.

SPI installed and Windows Mail still working well- good to go!

Recently I upgraded from Win7 x86 to x64 (professional), but I can't get Windows Mail to work. I got a copy of a working 64bit version (from another computer) of Windows Mail but it won't work on my system, giving this error: 0x8007000E. I Googled it dozens of times but can't get to a solution, most of the results are related to Vista, 32bit and/or other software applications.

My housemate also has a Win7 64bit system, so I already tried copying my Windows Mail to his computer to see if it's corrupt or something alike, but it's not. It totally works on his computer.

Somewhere I found the solution of locating another MSOERES.dll elsewhere on the computer (C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-m..-core-dll.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_2cea88b0c19dd22e) and placing it in the Windows Mail folder. I was very happy to see it actually launched the application, BUT.. There are no icons whatsoever and some text styling isn't correct:


I copied the whole Windows Mail folder again, placed it on my mate's computer, but with the same result. So this is probably due to MSOERES.dll. But with using the one that SHOULD work, I get the 0x8007000E error.

Does anyone have an idea about how to solve this? I really want it to work the way it should 'cause I know it's possible, as I copied Windows Mail from a working Windows 7 64bit system which also works correctly on my mate's PC. I really want it to work..

P.S.
I already recovered a backup of a clean installation of Windows 7 but still it wouldn't work. I haven't tried completely reinstalling Windows 'cause it seems pretty useless, since it also didn't work on my clean install..

"MSOERES.dll" is not mentioned in the tutorial.

Did you first update fully the 64-bit version of Windows 7 and then carefully followed the tutorial (linked to at the top of this page where it says "click here to read...") to reinstate Windows Mail? It does not require moving/changing multiple files but only msoe.dll which can be downloaded from the tutorial.

I figured I made a simple, stupid mistake myself. I was one step ahead in the wrong direction, for I just copy/pasted Windows Mail from one of my Vista laptops back when I installed Windows 7 32bit version. I honestly thought that WinMail.exe did not exist on a Windows 7 installation so the first thing I did was getting my hands on a x64 copy of Windows Mail from a Vista machine. Your (Roncerr) post made me go through the tutorial again and this time I applied it to the ORIGINAL Windows Mail folder that came with Windows 7. Then, a lot made sense..

So I basically failed to do it right because I was thinking way more difficult than needed.. So yeah, it works like a charm now. Thank you for your input!

How to go back???

Greetings!

My first post here.

I really like Windows Mail in Windows 7. I did this "mod" long ago and forgot about it...UNTIL I spent hours and hours trying to install SP1. I did all the usual MS recommended things but nothing. I had glanced at the CBS log before but apparently overlooked it but did see it this afternoon:



Code:

It looks like Windows Mail is causing the problem.

I am not really all that technical (tutorial follower) so I would like to know how do I go back to the Windows 7 original state. I am thinking that I could install SP1 and then come back to Windows Mail.

Thanks kindly,

Okay... like I said I am new here. Although I did use search earlier, I did not find anything useful.

Well, after plowing through this thread I found what I was looking for: Gobbledegeek's post: https://www.sevenforums.com/1264388-post958.html.

Worked like a charm. Thanks, Gobbledegeek!

Hi, Pete!

Being that your problem is not related to Windows Mail then maybe your inquiry should be posted to the appropriate thread. In any case, in order for anyone to help you need to state kind of error message you get?

For example, if you get Error: E_FAIL(0x80004005), then try searching/posting here: Home - Microsoft Answers

Other things to consider:

Go through this sequence: Unable to install updates in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Examine CBS.log here -- C:\Windows\Logs\CBS

If you have update issues then this might help: Repair & Fix Windows Updates with Fix WU Utility | The Windows Club

Also, check: Windows 7 Installation, Setup, and Deployment Forum
