Hi,

I'm still showing the 1.1mb update

It's going to be the same WLE2011 installer that you can get from the MSN website which allows you to select which apps to install or install all apps.

You should be offered two choices: Upgrading all currently-installed Windows Live Essentials apps or choosing which Windows Live Essentials 2011 applications you wish to install/upgrade.

Of interest by the Microsoft Update Product Team, Windows Live Essentials on Microsoft Update :
Quote:
Windows Live Essentials 2011 will be offered as a Recommended Update for users who have any one of the Windows Live software products installed, otherwise it will be offered as an Optional Update. If you have configured your computer to automatically download Recommended Updates then it will download automatically. After download is complete, WU will notify you of available updates, and you can start the upgrade. It will not install automatically.

I have downloaded it, tweaked it and with all the hype abou it being so nice n' tidy I have to say from my own daily use of WL-Mail and WL-Messenger 2011 is a major disappointment. I did a system restore and then visited windows updates to hide the 2011 update/upgrade.

Why did I not like it? Because I don't use Microsoft Office 2007/2010 and WLE 2011 has implemented a UI that looks like Office 2010 Menu Bar/Toolbar. I know a lot of people who have Office will like this---it will be familiar. For me, there is way, way too many buttons on the Menu Bar. Yes I know you can minimize it but to make it look as streamlined as version 2010 (see screenie of my WL-Mail Menu Bar) you simply cannot. Or I couldn't find a simpler choice for it...

I was referring to Windows Live Mail. I don't do social networking.

I was happy to find this thread, because this update has been nagging me for days. Unfortunately my experience is not the same as has been described here. The update had already been downloaded, and when I clicked on install the whole thing apparently is installing. It's been processing for ten minutes so far, with not much sign of nearing completion.

There is only one program I'm remotely interested in in the update, so this whole episode has been a royal annoyance. And if I roll back to the restore point the whole process will probably begin again. And my effort to turn off this update at Windows Update only took me back to the local update notification. Evidently there's no way to turn the thing off.

After fifteen minutes of waiting, I just killed the installation and will roll back to a restore point. Thanks, MS. /s
