Missing Windows Live Mail!

vbimport

#1

Went to install my CloneDvd, I have it and the Lic. on a dvd. Always opened by Windows Live Mail. Get the message that this dll is missing “Wldcore.dll”. Went on Google with the problem and was told to uninstall re-install Win.Live Mail. Crazy, cannot find it in control panel to uninstall it. Yet it shows in the program file, but when I try to open it I get the same message about the missing dll file. Help!!

In Control Panel / Programs / Programs & Features / Windows Live Essentials
Windows Live Essentials is what you will uninstall.
It’s also what you need to download & reinstall.

You select the components of Windows Live you want during the install.

Thanks C, did that and when re-installing Win. Essentials, was asked to download all or chosen programs, chose the alternative to download individual programs it showed that the only one not already downloaded was Onedrive,(it was downloaded), so chose to download all. After doing so there is no sign of Mail Live anywhere, and I cannot open any .eml files opened previously by Windows Live. Driving me crazy, if worse comes to worse I;ll do a factory re-install.

The instructions were actually more for Windows 7 .
I thought they might work on Windows 8.
W7 uses Windows Live Mail to open .eml files.

I remember reading something on this somewhere for W8.
I will take a look & post if I find something.

I assume you did a Search for the Wldcore.dll ?

I found some .eml readers but their functionality seemed limited.

I would uninstall Windows Live Essentials 2012 again.
Possibly from “Safe” mode if it will let you.

Then try in to install in Normal mode .
Except disconnect from the Internet & install offline.
That may not help but what I suggest.

The best solution still is to install Windows Live 2012.
The link if for the offline installer.

Install Windows Live Mail from it.
You will probably still need to associate the .eml file with Windows Live Mail.
Usually you can do that with right click “Open” then check “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file”.

Cholla thanks as always for your replies. I finally just re-installed to factory, was having other problems also, working fine now.

Your Welcome durkinjt . Too bad you had to reformat but sometimes that’s the way to fix multiple problems.
Myself I rarely reformat. What I use is Acronis True Image to create backups.
I try to keep two of an OS . Both from when the OS was working well. That avoids the majority of Windows Updates & reinstalling software.

Thanks Cholla, I actually have a second drive with most of the important stuff, so a reformat is not a big deal, I actually have Acronis True Image somewhere, probably a good idea to make a full backup.

I actually have two versions of ATI .
One I use for Vista & older .
The other for Windows 7.
Those are the OS’s they are for.
The newer version that works with W7 would probably work with W8 .
I don’t have or plan to get W8 so obviously haven’t tested it.
I also keep a lot of “stuff” on another drive as well as the backups.
Just in case.
