    Windows Live Mail 2011 Problems

    I deleted Windows Live Essentials because of a problem with some of the programs it installed (no problem with Mail). I then reinstalled it and now WLE isn't listed in control panel and the mail program has stopped working. Windows Live Mail still appears in the statup menu, clicking on it does not help.

    The file name for the installation was: wlsetup-web.exe.

    I need help getting the installation correct and help starting Windows Live Mail.

    WLE is a suite of apps that includes WLM. When you install WLE you are given the option to do a full install (words to that effect) or to choose the apps to install. If you select choose the apps to install you are taken to a screen to pick which of the 6 or 8 apps you wish to install (I do not remember the exact number of apps in the suite). I suspect somewhere in the installation or uninstallation something was corrupted.

    I would suggest installing the complete suite of apps again, then using an app such as Revo Uninstaller to uninstall the entire suite including all leftover stuff, plus CCleaner to find any trace stuff left behind.

    At this point I would then once again go to the installer, but this time choose which apps to install and only install the particular parts of the suite you wish to use.

    Thanks Ted, I will follow your suggestions. Wish me good fortune.

    Lightbulb My solution to WLM2011 problems...!

    I agree with Ted that something is probably corrupted, but don't like to use Revo Uninstaller as it plays Havoc with programs that have an uninstall.isu... (properly deletes files/registry on reboot).
    I'd use CC/reboot twice (wait 8min before/after).
    ~~~~~~~~~
    My solution to WLM2011 bloatware, and their Awful GUI!-
    I went back to WLM2009 (I only use POP3), and their user friendly GUI (much the same as XP's Outlook Express).
    You can download WLM2009, and program options are much the same as 2011 (I just do WLM).
    To download WLM2009-
    In your Google... search box enter " Window Live Mail 2009 filehippo " (no quotes).
    In the upper Right you will see WLM2009, then click view more... under it for the download link...

    When you install any version WLM-
    Wait 15min for this Huge program to finish installation, then reboot & wait 15min before first use.
    Also if your AV does a definition update pop-up while using WLM, wait 5min before resuming or you may get "Stopped Working" crash.
