    I installed the patch via the link in the email from MS, and then found that all my sub-folders had disappeared. I checked the version and it was 918 (post patch). I then uninstalled livemail, using the Programs add/remove facility in control panel. Finally I re-installed livemail 2012, and checked the version, sure enough 331(pre-patch). However, I still don't have any sub-folders!. At least 50% of my previous emails are no longer viewable.

    Assuming your WLM is connected to a cloud EMail server such as Windows live, add a sub folder (e.g. called temp) where the sub folders should be. Close WLM and then reopen it. The other folders should hopefully reappear. You can now delete the temporary sub folder. Repeat as necessary for missing sub sub folders.

    Go to Windows Explorer (File Explorer) click on This PC and search for *.eml This will tell you where the file store is for emails.
    Go to WLM, click on File, Options, Mail, Advanced, Maintenance, Store Folder. The path indicated there should point to the location where you found the eml files. If it doesn't (and because you don't have your emails it won't) change the path to where you found the eml files.

    That should restore all your accounts the the emails within them.

    A bit ironic to see this thread in this forum. The update referred to, KB3093594, is only for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. It's not supported on Windows 10 because the program crashes as soon as the calendar tries to update ...
    The email from Microsoft said ...... "Windows 8, Windows 8.1 y Windows 10. " .... there is not doubt about this.

    Did anybody try this? Heard it from one OEM engineer, said it should work and also pass changes no matter what MS will make in next few weeks:

    1. Verify WLM version is: Build 16.4.3528.0331
    2. Close WLM. Open properties of wlmail.exe, run compatibility mode to Windows 8, apply.
    3. Restart PC. Install KB3093594/d-Mail.msp.
    4. Restart PC. Open WLM.

    Too busy right now, but I'll try next Monday though!
    No, it crashes even in compatibility mode.

    Hi Nigeld and newdoverma - not at my PC now but will try your suggestions as soon as I am. There is a lot of information in the sub-folders that I need fro time to time.
    Thanks for your suggestions.

    That was recommending you to use the native Mail app, not instructing you to apply the update:

    I merely uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and it works fine. I am a little confused about their note, "in order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 etc". Does that mean that after they get done messing around with things and if you install the update, if it ever works, will you then still be able to use Live instead of the nutty new Mail??

    You are absolutely correct. MS could have been a lot less muddled in what OS this applied to. The Email leaves one with the impression this update is also for Windows 10. While the actual KB for the update, shows it is only for Win 7 through 8.1.
