  2. What are the exact differences between Windows 10 Mail app and Live Mail

    Dear ZigZag,

    Thank you very much for your advice. I have decided for the time being though to keep using Windows Live Mail. But I have also downloaded the installation file for Windows Live Essentials wlsetup-all.exe from g.live.com/1rewlive5-all/nl/wlsetup-all.exe (Note,
    this is a Dutch version), and stored this in a folder Software Downloads which is a subfolder of my My Documents folder, that I back-up every day. So in case of a crash I am able to restore Windows Live Essentials of which Live Mail is a part.

    I would start by browsing to c:\\windows\sysWOW64\ and see if the msxm16.dll file is there. The error points to it being missing or damaged.

  5. Also, you could try running a repair install of Windows Live Mail through the control panel.

    Yes the file is there.

    How do you do that?

    I am presently having issue with my WLM 2012.

    I did a system restore, picking a date I had no such issue as my restore point. It worked.
    System Restore Windows 10

    As to repairing WLM...............
    Go to Programs and Features > right click at Windows Essentials (2011 or 2012 ) > click Uninstall/Change > click Repair.

    joben1,
    1 day has gone by.
    What is your current status.
    Still having the same issue or is it resolved ?
    If you have found another way to solve this problem, I would like to know because I am using WLM too, for almost 6 years.
