    Yes, W-10 sets Windows Mail to the level it was when it came out of MS.

    I did all the conversion (tweaks) to make it work in Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, then copied all the files in the Windows Mail program folder, in 8.1, to a folder on my Utilities disk (& Flash Drive).

    After W-10 has done its worse, I go in and with "Grant Admin Full control" running, I take ownership of all the files in the Windows Mail folder and then delete them (all).
    Then I copy all the Windows Mail files that I have stored on my Util's disk and paste them into the Windows Mail folder on the hard drive. Then I right-click on WinMail.exe and 'Send to Desktop, & create a shortcut". Job done.

    I can then import my saved address book and saved email folders. I've gotten the process down to less than five minutes.
    * It's important to always work with the files in the "Program Files" folder, regardless of whether you're running the 32 bit or 64 bit version of the OS.
    I can't pin down the exact file, but there is a difference between the files in the 32 bit version of Windows and the files used in the 64 bit version. I have them both, in two different folders, appropriately named.
    What works for Windows 8.1 also works for Windows 10. I've done it many times so far.

    good luck

    Hi my name is René,

    Glad to see that i am not the only one with the same question. I used "Windows Mail"in windows 7 with the same steps as above and that worked like a charm. Now followed the same steps again after a upgrade to Win10. But i still keep getting the error can't not start windows mail because of a DLL error. When i click on a MAILTO link i get the error "Windows mail can not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be loaded or initialized or found. (translation not sure From dutch to english)

    Do i have to set owner back to trusted installer? From start after taking permission i deleted the whole Windows mail folder and replaced is from my backup-disk in the 32bits folder the backup folder 32 bits and 64bits folder the backup from the 64bits folder.

    I really dont like to use WLM beacause of the different folder structure. Also importing the "Windows Mail"folder into WML its makes a mess of the emails.

    So i am hoping that someone can help me get this to work.


    EDIT SOLVED

    Searching and trying all sunday. Started over again as explained in this topic (post 1 and post 10)and it fired my windows mail up right away. Copied back my windows mail folder from backup disk and all the folders where there

    Hello Everyone; I'm one of the new kids on here so try putting up with my (silly?) questions if you will.

    Like many I've been very happily running Windows Mail (Not Windows Live Mail) on Windows 7. Today I've "upgraded" to Windows 10 Pro & whilst just about all of the software I had running on 7, continues to run on Windows 10 unfortunately Windows Mail will not. Has anyone yet managed to fix this (to me) very annoying problem? It was said that Windows Mail was only for Vista but some smart guys out there soon solved that & I'm hoping somebody has done the same again. I have alternatives but none are acceptable apart from reverting back to Windows 7.
    I use Windows Mail (Vista). Copied it from a 64 bit machine of mine that's old. You have to delete the existing Windows Mail in program files before copying this over. Works just fine.

    It's more complicated than that so I don't understand how you managed.

    I did have to copy msidcrl30.dll to c:/windows/system32 folder as well. Omitted that. The link by resi1972 has all the answers.

    Here's is apart from what Endoavor wrote in the windows 8 forum:

    I did adjust it for Windows10

    Instructions how to install WinMail to 10:
    Take ownership of winmail folder ( if you use windows 8x64 , you need to take ownership of program files/winmail and program files(x86)/winmail). Remember to check the " show system files " before that.
    ~ install Brinks Take Ownership.reg Here (works only for Windows 10 when English)
    ~ Then right click on your W10 'Program Files/Windows Mail' folder, and click Take Ownership.
    ~ Then right click on your W10 'Program Files/Windows Mail' folder, and Delete it.
    ~ Then copy/paste 'the windows mail folders from the attachment ' to the Windows Mail' folders
    C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (x86) if you have a 64bit OS else only the 32bits folder
    ~ Create a shortcut from the WinMail.exe you just copied - to the Desktop.
    If you can't see winmail.exe in the folder goto view and uncheck the
    Hide protected operating system files checkbox

    ~ copy/replace the
    msidcrl30.dll
    from the attachment to C:\Windows\System32\msidcrl30.dll. Use the 32bit dll for a 32bits windows 10 and the 64 bits dll wheb your windows is a 64 bits OS
    ~ Download the WinMailEdit.reg (supplied at the bottom of this post) ..and merge it (x86/x64)
    ~ Then you are done..
    ~ Start WinMail and she opens immediately..
    ...from here you setup the Windows Mail client as normal...

    Hi.

    First of all.. Please excuse my poor english as I am from Germany. Thx..

    About three weeks ago I upgraded my first PC from "Windows 7 Ultimate x64" to "Windows 10 PRO" (Build 10240).
    After having different probs with some programs (sorry.. Apps) & features, e.g. Soundcard drivers, the "only-512-entries-in-the-Start-Menü-Bug" and some other little crazy things, I must say that Windows 10 now runs stable and smooth.

    So today I decided to have an eye on the old "WinMail" which has run absolutely stable under my old Windows 7 and still runs on my second Windows 7 PC.

    After this -> "Windows Mail" unfortunately I run into two problems.

    The first problem affects the settings for WinMail.
    The above part of the "Advanced" tab (german=Erweitert) under "Tools" (german="Extras") -> "Options" is completely empty
    (see pictures #1 & #2 - comparison Windows 7 / Windows 10). Click image for larger version.

    I rechecked all the necessary files in the folders under "programs\Windows Mail" & "programs (x86)\Windows Mail" for the correct version & ownership, etc..
    They are exactly the same as those in the old Windows 7 folder. The msidcrl30.dll's (System32 & SYSWOW64) are exactly the same too as under Windows 7.

    The second problem relates to the POP3 server.
    From time to time when I open WinMail or when I click on the "Send/Receive" button when WinMail is running an error pops up with the following message:
    "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity account:.. 'mx.freenet.de', Server: 'mx.freenet.de', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure (SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F "(see picture #3).

    This error occurs, as I already mentioned, only sporadically and in no fixed rhythm.
    I have checked the account settings again and again. Everything is as it should be and how it is on my second "Windows 7 Ultimate x64"-PC.
    I also disabled my Antivirus program (Avira) [Windows Defender is OFF] and the Windows Firewall. But the error shows up anyway.

    Both errors don't show up on my second Windows 7 computer with exactly the same settings.

    Would be great if someone could try to help me with this..
