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


    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.

    A question about Win 10

    Win 10 clean install question

    So I spend the day yesterday installing the computer, using a prepared usb key with windows 10 on it.

    I got it all sorted in the end but I'll share my fails anyways so others might learn:

    Do not try to do a clean install win with win 10 home N, when you come from a machine with just win 10 home. It won't activate *Wink A question about Win 10 ;) After reinstalling with the right copy, it was already activated right away after the first boot, didn't even have to initialise it.

    There hasn't changed a whole lot in making clean install compared to older versions of windows, it's slightly better streamlined, though being asked at 3 different stages to enter a product key when it's not needed during install seems a bit annoying.

    Further more it would be lovely if Microsoft finally learned to ask ALL questions regarding preferences updates and whatnot in one go, so you can then go away from your computer and come back to a fully installed/updated system including reboots.. Not impossible I would say.


    There's still some little bugs, like when I installed realtek audio drivers, they'd go into an infinite loop asking for reboot and install the driver. And as a PDF reader isn't in the list of standard programs to select, foxitreader keeps saying it is not the default reader for pdf's even though I had said yes to the question 3x. If this fails to get file associations for PDF's I do hope Microsoft will fix this asap.


    Thanks for the fast answers earlier guys, it gave me the confidence that all would be well, even when I cocked up the first install with the N version.
