New update WLE causes problems after installing in Windows Live Mail.

Now, I tried 3 times to install the latest update of Windows Live Essentials.  Whenever reports installation completed successfully, but when I try to creae or reply to an email from Windows live mail, I get a big box with a red border, with a lot of gibberish techno on the attachment of a debugger and give me the options retry, cancel or ignore.  Retry waiting attach a debugger (which I did not), the other two cause windows live mail to close.  The only way to regain control seems to be a system restore.  I'm very happy to do without the update, but I want to get rid of the system tray notification icon.


You can find support for the installation/uninstall/upgrade / upgrade to Windows Live Essentials 2011 (QFE2) in this forum (where you will find that you are not alone):

  • I have problems to connect to Windows Live Mail on the Hotmail account.

    Connection window Live Mail Hotmail problems

    I have problems to connect to Windows Live Mail on the Hotmail account.  I was wondering if anyone knows if this requires a paid subscription to Hotmail.  Microsoft does not explain this.
    To configure the POP3/SMTP to Hotmail/MSN/ access accounts in Windows Mail, use these settings:
    Make sure that all of your settings agree thereby. If you get an error message, do a right click on your error message, copy, then paste it into an answer here. We cannot do a lot of troubleshooting without the full error message.
    To give you a little history, Windows Mail does not support the HTTP messaging, which for a long time was the only authorized method of access for free Hotmail accounts. In addition, given that the development of Windows Mail was frozen in July 2006, there no knowledge that Microsoft has enabled POP access for free Hotmail/Live/MSN accounts in February 2009. Therefore, the Windows Mail Account Setup Wizard is hardcoded to reject the Hotmail and MSN addresses. To work around this limitation, when you enter your Hotmail/MSN email address, initially, use a fake domain, such as * address email is removed from the privacy *. After the account setup is complete, you can go back into the settings and correct your email address.

    "Joe Hartoe" has written in the new message: * e-mail address is removed from the privacy... *
    This is the mail of the window, it has been upgraded to manage Hotmail.  The error code indicates "connect to the mobile information server end." I came across this problem with Outlook Express similar years when Microsoft decided that Outlook cannot access Hotmail accounts on subscription.  Email client has no connection to Google problem.  Thank you

  • problems sending attachments with Windows Live Mail

  • I just installed a new drive faster. How can I get windows live mail from the old drive to the new drive

    Where are the files stored WindowsLiveMail?  Under what article directory.  I have "tons" of e-mail messages stored on the old disk and need to move them to the new drive faster.  How can I do?

    The location of the store folder, which contains all the messages, calendars and the account settings, is configurable by the user. The default location is
    C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail

    If the installer of WLMail is a record storage in the default location, it normally acknowledge and take into use if. The only user that would be required should reinstate saved passwords. If this is to succeed, the old and new installations of WLMail normally must be exactly the same construction. The storage location must be in place in the default location on the new drive before installing WLMail. Also, the current user must be the owner of the record store to its new location.

    If the old drive is installed on the same computer as the new facility in WLMail, you can point the Import Wizard to import messages to the old folder of the store. They will find under storage folders into imported folders.

  • Problems with Hotmail in Windows Live Mail Junk folder

    I came across a new problem three days ago. I noticed that any mail sent to my Hotmail Junk folder was endangered almost the moment where that happened. It was not deleted, it was simply disappearing one second after he arrived (I can watch it happen then disappear). I am able to access these emails with webmail, so I know that they are not being deleted. The same thing happens not with my gmail accounts with Hotmail.

    My storage is nowhere close to full, and I have not changed the settings either in the month, Windows Live Mail or via webmail. Neither I ran Windows Update recently.

    Until this started, I was getting at least a dozen e-mails a day (from different mailing lists that I prefer to keep in the junk e-mail folder).

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Out of the blue I started having problems with downloading emails over and over again. At the end of each download I get the following error message...

    Unable to send or receive messages for the steven - BT Yahoo! Mail account. Your server suddenly put an end to the connection. The possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

    Thank you.

    I don't think that the download is finished.

    1. Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program.
    2. Uncheck the option to check for messages every X minutes.

    See if the download is finished now. If this is the case, leave analysis off e-mails, but check again the other option. If you still have questions, ask the experts here. More in this forum which I belong do not use Windows Live Mail.

  • AVG Internet Security and AVG PC Tuneup will cause problems after upgarding to Windows 10?

    Original title: AVG vs 10 widows

    I used AVG Internet Security 2015 and AVG PC Tuneup 2015.  They will create no problem if I install Windows 10 as a replacement for Windows 7 Home Edition? wouldn't be better to remove them?

    If you look at the AVG support community there is not a lot of issues with AVG and Windows 10 products and the few that you can read on are resolved quickly - usually with an AVG uninstall and reinstall (especially after the migration of the BONE).

    If you are migrating your Windows 7 to Windows 10 I think I would uninstall all AVG products if they don't get in the way, completed the transition from OS and then reinstall AVG products from scratch on Windows 10.  Some problems of AVG support are usually solved with uninstall/reinstall anyway.

    From the looks of the circulation in this Windows 7 community, you're more likely to have questions Windows 7 migration to Windows 10 (or try to go back) with AVG.
