I installed Windows Live Mail (only mail) onto my XP system so that I can transfer Outlook Express 6 folders ready for my new Windows 7 PC. But not all folder files transferred.
So I have uninstalled Windows Live and Essentials so that I can do a fresh reinstall and try again to transfer all of Outlook Express 6 folders. But when running the Windows Live software it keeps saying Windows Live Mail is already installed. Where!
I have looked everywhere I can think of but cannot see any Windows Live Mail folder anywhere.
I have looked in Add/remove, program files etc. Any help appreciated.
It could be that it didn't fully uninstall. Have a look at posts on this forum - the one by Joseph L, 23rd January, leads you through how to remove any left-over files manually before trying to reinstall.
Windows Live Mail is part of Windows Essentials can be installed separately. In your case I think that there must be a registry error created with the first uninstall. Windows Live Mail will not be provided automatically with your new pc. You may wish to consider using Thunderbird to import from OE instead.
