    You should of mentioned in your first post that you're running Windows 10 on a Mac setup.. anyway unfortunately I have no experience with Mac running Windows to help you, and so again you can go over to the EightForums and post at the end of that thread and ask there in case you have someone else that is running what you are.
    Please do let us know what you find, but double check yourself again and make sure on your x86 OS that you have all x86 version files in your WinMail folder and the folder address is correct - 95 out of 100 times those are the problems.

    You did get all your files off of the WinMail tutorial post from Here ..right?

    To verify this screenshot below shows the right folder address location (it's the same for both x86/x64)
    Since the x86/x64 files date/sizes are different, this screenshot is also showing just x86 for you so that you can check yours in comparison to make sure they are correct.
    (fwiw, you can not go by file version numbering for WM x86/x64 files to check because in this case they are the same)

    Note: ...If people have brought forward and used their own working files there can be slightly varying dates on these files depending (I won't go into the reasoning here but has to do with Windows Update Timing back in 2009/2010) but one thing is for sure if you are having problems and question it, then if you get your files off the tutorial - those definitely are working files!

    Replacing Windows Mail in Win-10 with one from Win-Vista.


    TechnoMage said: View Post
    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

    May we use your method to move the Windows Mail (WM) program directly from Win Vista to Win 10?
    Both wife and I love the WM program, but not the Win 10 'version'.
    I saw a step by step listing to move the WM program from Win 7 to Win 10 (but couldn't find it today).
    Sure would be nice to have a similar set of steps for the move from Vista to 10.
    My PC experience started with MS Basic on a Timex-Sinclair, then MS DOS 3.0 on Ian BM at work. But never really followed through so need help from you younger guys and gals.

    Clayton, yes you can use your own files, as well realize the files from the tutorial attachments are the exact same thing already coming from Windows Vista - it's all the same.

    The tutorial instructions how to do it in every detail are posted Here

    Please for your own sake, just be sure you understand the limitations of using the old Vista WinMail client out of it's native environment inside of Windows7/8/10 by reading through the disclaimer, and the Bug List that's linked on the page there, and then decide if you want to do it and if it's right for you.
    Feel free to post your questions over there too.

    @endeavor - has this been found to work in W10 Enterprise also by any chance? I have a spare license for it kicking around and was thinking of giving it a whirl.

    Just had to do the folder replacement routine again. The latest update must have scotched the old one. I now have 3 Windows 10's, 2 Pro and 1 Enterprise and have to keep them all happy...LOL
    Aeroglass broke though, or at least gives errors at startup but then works....but that's a subject for MSFN not here.
    The way MS are doing updates now is strange, to me at least. It's almost like they're getting us used to to a permanent, subscription-type of routine.
    I'm beginning to wonder if we'll actually be able to buy just one OS in the future....it'll all be a by downloads and a subscription to keep that going.
    Not sure I like that thought.

    That's just one small of many other reasons why I don't bother with taking any updates at all until the next major build, that I will fresh install, or sometimes just update to it. Right now I'm more than happy with staying with original b14393 - it's my computer, and I will update it when I choose!

    I would never buy a subscription for an OS or Office, no way.
    I'll just stay with the last retail OS or Office version released.
