WindowsMail again

R.H. Breener

I had to reinstall the W-7 64 bit OS tonight. Now WindowsMail wont work
again and the working software was saved/backed-up. When reinstalled on
W-7, no go! She wont open. Can someone please help with this? Someone
posted the information last time on how to get WM to work on W-7 and it
worked. I didn't realize Seagate, an external backup drive, wasn't backing
up the folders from my desktop so lost the information. This time I'll
print it and keep it in the desk draw. Thanks. :^)

I'm not sure this is it because my command prompt says C:\Windows\system32>
and when I add cd %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\TutReWinMail\ it says it can't
find the path. Also, I cannot Paste anything in the command window. It has
to be typed in.

What does "tutorial objects" mean? I don't understands this: "You MUST be
in the folder containing the tutorial objects. The batch file in the next
step executes programs and copies files from that folder. If you are NOT in
that folder, the batch file will fail since it cannot find what it needs."

Which folder is the "tutorial objects" folder? Sorry but I don't know this
terminology.

I have the WM folder and download folders open. I tried in both.

When I execute the bat files I get "access denied". It says something about
needing a privilege. I have the prompt at Administrator: Command Prompt. I
lost the information on how to shut that Permissions crap off also. It was
in the same desktop folder.

What am I doing wrong here? I don't remember trying to make all these
changes last time or seeing anything that said access denied etc.

Ensure your windows logon profile is an administrator account.

Did you extract the contents of the Win74umsZip.zip in your Windows logon profile's Downloads folder to create the \TutReWinMail
and \TutReWinMail\Customization folder ?

To paste in a Command Prompt windows right click in a blank area and choose Paste

Ensure you are running a Command Prompt as an administrator (it's not enough for your account to be an admin, you must instruct
Windows to run Command Prompt as 'Run as Administrator'

'Tutorial objects' are the contents of the TutReWinMail folder
The tutorial objects folder is the TutReWinMail folder

Ensure your windows logon profile is an administrator account.

-> How is that done? It says I'm the Administrator when I look. There is
no password so I don't log in. The HP tech said that's the Admin account
but she barely spoke English.

Did you extract the contents of the Win74umsZip.zip in your Windows logon
profile's Downloads folder to create the \TutReWinMail
and \TutReWinMail\Customization folder ?

-> It's in the download folder between Desktop and Recent Places in
WindowsExplorer. Is that the "Windows logon profile's Downloads folder?"
When opened, there is a Customization folder in the download folder along
with the dlls and bats etc.

To paste in a Command Prompt windows right click in a blank area and choose
Paste

-> I pasted %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\TutReWinMail\ in the command window and
it says the system cannot find the path specified.

Ensure you are running a Command Prompt as an administrator (it's not enough
for your account to be an admin, you must instruct
Windows to run Command Prompt as 'Run as Administrator'

-> How do I instruct Windows to run the Prompt as "Run as Administrator?"
It says Administrator:Command Prompt when I click on "Run As Administrator."

'Tutorial objects' are the contents of the TutReWinMail folder
The tutorial objects folder is the TutReWinMail folder

-> They're all together in the one Download folder, the dlls, etc and the
Customization folder.

When you open the zip file, you should see an "Extract" button at the
top of the window. You need to click on that and accept the defaults.
Once you've extracted the files successfully, your command prompt
command should work.

I double clicked on the zip file and it opened in the Download window.
There is no extract button in the download window. This is a HomePremium 64
bit PC.

Sorry, wasn't in Windows.

I don't understand. Why would an MS website open up?
(That was when I double-clicked on a file called Transfer notes.zip in
Windows 7 HP 32bit - the 64 bit should be exactly the same)
When I double clicked on the Win74umsZip.zip it opened up to TutReWinMail,
that opened up to the dlls and other things in the zipped file.

SkyDrive is a Microsoft product. You can add it to Explorer as a folder.
So whatever you put or save there gets synced with all of your other
devices that also uses SkyDrive.

Because Skydrive is an MS website!However I don't know why that
happened. Try this link instead:

Yes, thanks, I knew what it was but couldn't see the connection to opening
the zipped file for getting WindowsMail to work on W-7. Last time I did this
there was another way and it wasn't this complicated. I remember downloading
a dll from some website and making a change to the registry using Run...
maybe another step in there, rebooted and WindowsMail opened and worked
fine. I can hardly understand what I'm reading on the recommended website.

My windowsExplorer looks nothing like that. I have, to the right of
Organize, ShareWith, Burn and NewFolder.

Is this the exact text to Copy and Paste or should it be changed in some way
so W-7 finds the path = cd %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\TutReWinMail\ I
can't get this to work with Administration: Command Prompt.

Then there's something very wrong. Are you SURE that what you have is a
zip file?

Try this: Right-click on the zip file and choose Extract All. See if that
works.

@Gordon
It happened because you pasted a link to a picture on your SkyDrive

@RH and Bill
- it has nothing to do with syncing to SkyDrive, Gordon pasted a link to a picture on his Skydrive

I know that - but it should have taken the OP directly to the picture
and not what he posted!

Yes. It's a zip file and I finally got WindowsMail to open and work on W-7.
All the NGs work, but it wont get the email from 3 of the email accounts. I
had to use that "unlocker" program to get it to work. But I have 4 email
accounts and only one will work now in WM. I've Googled and can't find the
answer on how to get all four to work.

I followed this: Open: Start Menu ==> All Programs ==> Accessories ==> Run.
Type in the following command, exactly as shown, in the Run box, or better
still, copy/paste it, and then click "OK":

attrib -s -h "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe" from:

http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/how-to-enable-windows-mail-app-in-windows-7.137494/
Then used the unlocker since there was no way I cound get permissions or
take control any other way.

This is the error I'm getting on 3 of the 4 email accounts:
