Windows 10: Live essentials 2012 failed to install
Live essentials 2012 failed to install
hope some good sould could help me here.
I want to install back live mail 2012 but at the end of the installation it keeps on reporting the following:
It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working.
instead of saying: done.
I've looked pretty everywhere but I couldn't find a solution.
I've tried a clean start, with just MS services, tried to uninstall feature NET framework and reinstall them, tried to stop and restart the firewall, tried to clean all the cache, temp files.
I also tried to install the messenger or the Photo gallery and Movie maker alone, without mail.
Nothing, it keeps on reporting that darn error
Anybody have an idea on what could be wrong?
Is your Windows Firewall turned On ?
It needs to be On.
Yes, that's the first think I checked and is on as it always been.
You said ........ I want to install back live mail 2012 .............
Do I assume you had Windows Essentials installed before ?
If yes, go to This PC > open C drive >
if your OS is 32-bit, open Program Files >
if your OS is 64-bit, open Program Files (x86) >
Look for Windows Live folder > if it is there, delete it.
Try installing Windows Essentials 2012 again.
The folder Windows Live is not there in Program Files (x36).
Probably uninstalling the program did erase also this folder.
I have no more ideas for you.

If you have a hotmail/outlook.com account then you can set it up using IMAP & smtp server setting & will afaik continue to download your ms emails after June 30th, it won't however sync your calendar & contacts. There is an fix but it doesn't work unless the account has been upgraded.
That worked for me when I couldn't uninstall WLMail the usual way. A caveat is that it will uninstall all your Windows Live apps not just the one you're having problems with.
Does anyone know if Microsoft is going to replace Windows Live Essentials as I heard on a cnet message forum administrator that Microsoft will no longer offer that suite or programs?
I used to use Windows Live Writer to blog but I needed more...
Have been using this program for months now on windows 10 32 bit, and I get an email saying that MS are making changes to Outlook servers and to patch WLM 2012 and a download link.

Is it safe to install Windows Essentials 2012 on a Windows 10 Surface Pro 3? Photo Gallery is what I am really after because it has a photo resize function where W10 Photo app does not.
I'll tell you what I think shall I? I think that Microsoft doing away with Windows Live Essentials such as mail and messenger is wrong, they are basically trying to FORCE people who HATE skype (such as myself) to use it and outlook and I much prefer...
