    yes it will, you need to turn off smart filtering in IE, then when it tells you it will not allow you to install again, say Run it anyway, then it will allow you to download it and install

    I do not use IE. I use FF. but I downloaded the install file and it is in my download folder. when I click to open it, nothing happens.
    usually a box pops up, asking if I want to let the file have access. this does not happen with Thunderbird.

    Solved thanks to Robinb9. Big thanks to her.
    The problem seemed to be 'running un-install does not completely UN-INSTALL!!! (Why I ask myself?)
    One has to do all sorts of additional clean up after the un-install.
    I now seem to have Windows Live Mail working on Windows 8.
    I am a more happy user, On to the next problems.

Problems with Windows8 Mail in Browsers & Mail
Windows 8 Mail seems to have many problems. When I connect my Hotmail account, I only see unread counts on the Inbox - not for any of my folders until I actually open them in Mail.
