    Windows 10 and WLM 2012 (Solved)

    I upgraded today to windows 10 and my WLM is not working, it never gets beyond the splash screen. I had 2011 so tried installing 2012 and still no dice. Even tried running as administrator. I have some vital saved emails that I need to print out. Yes I know I should have done it before the upgrade, but when I did the check for program compatibilty before upgrade, it didn't list WLM so I thought it would work
    Is there anything I can do?
    Thanks in advance

    You could roll back, copy off the emails you need, then re-install windows 10. Not the most pleasant solution, but maybe the best one.

    I was hoping you wouldn't say that lol. No other way then?

    EDIT: I got it to work using the compatibilty troubleshooter, it's now running in windows 8 mode

    The emails are still all on the M$ Servers , you can always sign into www.Outlook.com and use it if needed too (Webmail)

    WLM Support ends for DeltaSync on June 30th though if you aren't aware , so you will need to setup the Account in the win10 Mail App or set the Account up in WLM as a IMAP Account instead of a Hotmail (Deltasync) Account.

    If you go IMAP only the Mail will be sync though not your Calendar.
