    Cant' install Windows Essentials app Windows 8.1

    I'm trying to install Windows Live Mail from Windows Essentials 2012 web installer on Windows 8.1 Pro, but I'm encountering an error. Here is a screenshot:

    Couldn't install these programs: Mail

    It looks like another program preventing the installer from working.
    Error: 0x80070643
    Source: WLXSuite

    By the way, I can't install any other Windows Essentials 12 applications either, such as SkyDrive and Windows Live Messenger. I get the same error code, only with a different "source". Any ideas on how to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.
