    Cannot load win live. Says it is there already


    I did a clean boot to Win7, installed all updates. Downloaded Win Essentials. It worked. But when I tried to add my emails I did something and it would not open . Tried to re install Win essentials but it says "you already have it". I up graded to Win10. Still have the problem. Win Live doesn't appear in the Apps list, or programs list, in the control panel. Removed all references to Win live in user/apps/local etc. Still when trying to download Win Essentials it says, "done you already have it". Any idea how to fully remove it without doing a clean boot so I can get it to download??

    :)

  2. Display not same as on my Surface Pro

    My Surface Pro is showing it is already updated to latest setting and it also says in the instructions you sent

    "You cannot download and install Surface updates manually on Surface Pro or Surface Pro 2."

    so I cannot adjust for Win 8 comparability mode. Please advise on how to get around this issue as I still can not manually load driver using Win 8 compatability mode.

    When it starts, it says there is an error then it will restart say there is an error WDF voliation, restart.

    Original Title: WDF voliation

    I just upgraded from W7 pro to W10.

    when it starts, it says there is an error then it will restart say there is an error WDF voliation, restart, say it is repairing, then there is an error, and it repeats and repeats same thing.

    It is an HP computer, U have tried "esc" at start up, but can't get to the safe mode. I can not use the computer

    Thanks for the quick response Doctor (Who) 9Fan. I found the admin command prompt and typed the command that was given, into the window. I wasn't sure if the quote marks were required or not so I did it both ways. also tried without the final command. All attempts gave the message "Not recognized as int or ext command operable program or command". The command window types, C:\windows\system 32> . Tried to download the file indicated but the site "Reason Core Security" had so many listed programs I could not find a match. I selected the nearest one, and wound up with Reason Core Security trial loaded on my pc. So Help still..

    look for Windows essentials instead of windows live.. When you click the uninstall button, you get an option to repair of uninstall.

    The link is a direct download the the file on ms servers so don't know how you visited another website, could be more going on on your PC than you first thought.
    If the wlarp.exe isn't on the system then it'll fail with that error.

    To essenbe: Thanks but Win essentials is not listed either. Neither apps list,program list, or local apps do not show either win live or win essentials. Dont know what to do now. would like to have win live as I have it on my other pc's . I will load another email app just so I can see responses from this pc.

    I am not to conversant any longer with command prompt usage. I haven't used it for 20 years or more. The suggested wlarp command is not understood by the command prompt with or without admin. What are the allowable commands? It sure sounds like that is the way to go. I'll try the download again. Google Chrome is my preferred browser.*Sad

    Try another browser if possible to download the file.
    Make sure you're using the correct command for your system - it's different depending on whether you have a 32 bit or 64 bit system.

    Good to hear everything is now fine.
    Have you also reinstalled WLMail & been able to add & use each email account successfully?

    Yes. I have installed Win Live and down loaded all my emails. I have to set up my folders and try to restore my old emails.
    I still dont know why I couldnt get the command window info that you sent to work. Thanks againfor your help. EdZiim.

    For future reference you can save the Windows Live Mail folder under the hidden Microsoft folder which contains all the accounts & emails: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
    You'll have to enter the password for each email account but you'll keep all your previously downloaded emails.
    To restore the saved folder, open WLMail to create a new Windows live mail folder then navigate to the above folder & paste the saved/original Windows live mail folder to overwrite the new folder, when you next open WLMail your accounts & emails will appear.

    @Doctor9fan, am I mistaken? I thought you had to replace 2 folders. I'm not sure as I have never tried it.

    C:\Users\Myuser\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    C:\Users\Myuser\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live
