Now WindowsMail wont work.

After having WindowsMail work perfectly in W-7, it will not work now and
gives us this error when we try to open it: "Cannot load MSOE.DLL." W-7
had no trouble loading this DLL before. Come to find out all we get from HP
are Recovery Disks for "Windows." We cannot reformat the HP and reinstall
the OS to get rid of the problems. Anything else wrong or problematic stays
problematic.

So we can't remove WindowsMail and install a fresh copy. The PC detects the
external modem but now I have no working email client.

The tech from HP is supposed to call us back later tonight. He had me do
yet the 3rd WindowsSystemRecovery because he couldn't take control of the
W-7 PC for some unknown reason. I requested a disk to reformat the HD and
reinstall the OS but got no commitment. The new HP PC is not suitable to
install XP.

As for a few MS-heads here, installing WindowsMail on W-7 is no big deal
that harms the system. Unsupported? What a joke. MS would support other
email software such as Thunderbird, but not it's own? They just want people
to use the unpopular new WindowsLiveMail. It keeps the software writers
employed.

Oh? They don't? We're forced to use WLM or nothing? Here it was suggested to
use Thunderbird and other email clients of one didn't like WLM.

That's a valid suggestion, but where does it say that MS supports those
other email clients? I don't use WLM, for mail or newsgroups and I get
along quite well. I can even use Outlook Express if I so desire.

Microsoft DOES NOT support Thunderbird on Windows 7. Mozilla does.

Where do you get these wacky ideas? Mozilla supports Thunderbird on
whatever platforms it chooses, and if you have a problem with a Mozilla
product, you turn to Mozilla. Microsoft just provides a platform. They
don't accept responsibility for making sure other company's programs
run properly on Windows.

Microsoft only supports their own two or three email programs on their
latest operating system: Microsoft Outlook (recent versions only),
Windows Live Mail, and maybe Windows Mail. If you have problems with
other email programs, tough luck - if that program is currently
supported by it's manufacturer, go to them for help.

The world is littered with old versions of programs that are no longer
supported. The world moves on - deal with it and stop whining.

Just because you can install a program on Windows it does not mean that
Microsoft supports it.

The probable reason for the error, is Windows has updated the .dll

What you can do is go into Program Files and rename the folder 'Windows
Mail' to say 'OLD Windows Mail' and add a new 'Windows Mail' folder
containing the correct version of the .dll
If you don't have a copy of Windows Mail to place in Program Files, you can
download a copy if you search hard. Or maybe just download the msoe.dll and
copy the other files from the 'OLD Windows Mail' folder or find a friend
that has a Vista disk and copy it from there as I did

Take your Meds. You forgot to take this morning. After taking them make a resolution
that you will enroll in computer classes nearest to your home and you will go
through the course as long as it takes. Then come back and tell us how irritating
you were at these times with not knowing anything on how a computer or a computer
program works and behaves

Check to see if there's an option in Programs and Characteristics to
repair Windows Mail. Once you're in Programs and Characteristics, click
on Windows Mail and it may offer the option to repair. If not, use
Thunderbird which will work in Windows 7 (that's where you got the
erroneous idea that MS supports Thunderbird) but it's supported by
Mozilla. http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird
A MESSAGE 4 MY GOOD FRIEND ALIAS, WINDOWS MAIL FUNCTIONS THAT WAY BY

That's my point. MS only supports WLM . If someone doesn't like WLM they
have to use an unsupported mail/news reader be it MS Outlook Express on an
old PC or Thunderbird or WindowsMail on Vista.

I don't use WLM, for mail or newsgroups and I get
along quite well. I can even use Outlook Express if I so desire.
So you got Outlook Express to work on W-7, or you have an old XP PC?

Keep up sport, she doesn't like nor want WLM. But instead of opting to
install a much better 3rd party client such as Thunderbird, she chooses
to fight with installing and using inferior Windows Mail on Win7 which
isn't much, (If any), better than WLM. So-be-it, I say quit bitching then.

G'day

You misunderstood. I don't like or use Thunderbird no matter who does or
doesn't support it. I couldn't care less.
Microsoft only supports their own two or three email programs on their
latest operating system: Microsoft Outlook (recent versions only),
Windows Live Mail, and maybe Windows Mail. If you have problems with
other email programs, tough luck - if that program is currently
supported by it's manufacturer, go to them for help.
We tried a few over the years and never found one we liked better than OE or
WM. Now why doesn't MS support WM on W-7? Why is it set up that WM will not
work on W-7?
The world is littered with old versions of programs that are no longer
supported. The world moves on - deal with it and stop whining.
So as a MS-Head, to you, anyone not happy with a MS product is a
whiner........ I get it now. We're all supposed to shut up and worship at
the feet MS no matter how unsuitable the MS software may be.

Because you take meds Peter, don't assume other people need them. ;-) I
take Aspirin for a headache occasionally.

I already took them. I've mentioned this before. Is everyone who is not
happy with WLM in need of more PC classes?

Then come back and tell us how irritating
you were at these times with not knowing anything on how a computer or a
computer program works and behaves
And this has WHAT to do with not having a usable email/news client on W-7?
Instead of complaining why not tell those of us who like WM how to install
it on W-7 where it will work reliably? Your complaining and idiotic insults
are of no benefit to anyone.

Where do you get these bizarre ideas? There are many "supported" email
clients available besides WLM.

Thunderbird is not unsupported. Mozilla fully supports it.
