    OE 6 not installed with Windows XP (6)

    I just installed Windows XP Pro as an upgrade from Win2k. IE 6 was installed (i had 5.5 before) but OE6 is nowhere to be found. I still have OE 5.5. I can't find 6 on the installation CD, it doesn't show up in Add/Remove Programs/Windows components, and it doesn't show up on Windows Update. Why didn't it install, and where is it?

    Re: OE 6 not installed with Windows XP (6)

    Let me add this to my previous post. I also went to the IE download site and attempted a download from there, thinking that this might also upgrade my OE5.5, but no luck. My version of OE seems to be untouchable. I can find no way of getting at it, either to upgrade or to uninstall. Why didn't OE upgrade along with IE when I installed XP?
    Anyone?

    You could try the suggestions in <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=oe&Number=94813&page=0&view =collapsed&sb=5&o=0>this post</A>. I haven't tried it but it looks hopeful.

    Re: OE 6 not installed with Windows XP (6)

    I looked at that post and didn't find anything relevant to my problem. I have Outlook and it works fine, but it is version 5.5, and my Windows XP upgrade from Win2k upgraded IE5.5 to IE6, but it didn't upgrade Outlook Express 5.5 to OE 6. I've posted in other forums as well, and no one has responded. This must have everyone stumped. I also emailed Microsoft on this (not that i expect to get a reply).

    Is this a retail copy or a OEM copy?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    This is a retail version of Windows XP Pro, full version, not upgrade version. I upgraded an OEM installation of Windows 2000.
