    Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10


    Just installed Win 10.

    Now Eudora 7 fails immediately with error message
    The directory specified in the command line
    Files
    doesn't exist or is not writable.

    I have no idea what this means or where to begin with this.

    This despite Win 10 crowing upon completion of installation that "all your files are exactly where you left them."

    :)

    The hyperlinks in Eudora 7 emails no longer work.

    After installing Windows 10 the hyperlinks in Eudora 7 emails no longer worked. I have reinstalled Eudora and made it the default Email program.

    My default browser is Chrome.

    I receive " server execution failed", error message

    Also it won't let me open the email in the Browser. As a stop gap I'm copying links and pasting them in the Chrome Browser.

    win10 wlan fails after upgrade from Win7 and clean install on HP laptop

    I reverted back to Win 7. WLAN and everything else works fine again.

    So the Win 10 upgrade failed to get the WLAN working, even though the driver appears to install without errors.

    With Win7 installed, the light on the WLAN key on the keyboard is white at boot, and stays white.

    With Win10, the light is orange, even before Win10 is loaded.

    Win10 must load some sort of software in the bios that is interfering.

    Win10 upgrade is a fail on this system without WLAN working.

    Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10

    I did a little research into this and found this possible fix:

    "Thanks. You answer put me onto the correct answer:Copy all of the Eudora files from C:/Program Files/Qualcomm/Eudora to c:/users/sales/appdata/roaming/qualcomm\eudora. Then edit the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Qualcomm > Eudora > CommandLine and replace C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe with c:\users\sales\appdata\roaming\qualcomm\eudora\Eudora.exeI may not have my slashing tilted the right way but you get the idea."

    I have to question why you want to use software that hasn't been updated for 6 years though. Could potentially have security risks.

    Thanks for the quick response. But it doesn't quite do the trick. After the folder replication (replacing "sales" with "bec") and registry mod you suggest, upon initial program load, Eudora says "Eudora is not currently the default program. Would you like . . .? [Y][N]" Clicking [Y] gives "Eudora was unable to update the system registry. Your default program has not been changed." [N] gives similar results. Then we get the banner page "Welcome to Eudora!" Then "Either there is no default client or the current client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default client."

    On reëxamining the registry entry, it now says

    "C:\PROGRA~2\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe C:\Users\bec\AppData\Roaming\Qualcomm\Eudora C:\Users\bec\AppData\Roaming\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.ini" (all one line). Very mysterious.

    I am eager to migrate to Thunderbird but don't want to lose all my mailbox contents. Can I do that migration without a functioning Eudora?
