    You are up early, I am too, but am off. You'll be fine, just be sure to use the ''x86'' ''msidcrl30.dll'' I specifically mentioned in my previous post. ...gotta go to work now, see you later. OT, even though I have them both, but I prefer to use x86 OS's across the board, but that's another subject.

    Uh-oh...that zip contains the rar files, yes. But once extracted they are missing a crucial file (& maybe others) winmail.exe isn't there.

    Everything is there Peter, I just checked.
    Extract again or use a different extractor, and/or (I know you know this already) ..but sometimes AV's take things during extractions, but in this case there's no reason whatsoever! - if it did, dump the AV

    Also remember, the msidcrl30.dll he gives is x64, use the one from my post 10

    No quarantined files, hidden files and folders set to be visible, Latest 7-Zip. I don't understand. What's best to open a RAR file?

    You did mean the zip file in post #1 of this thread - right?

    This is all I see:

    Error whem Activating WinMail in Windows 10


    When I've completed the "2015 Revised" Post above, upon clicking the Windows Mail Icon on my Desktop, I get the following Error Code (0x8007000E). I've previously had success Activating Windows Mail on 3 Windows 7 PCs.
    Any suggestion appreciated.............Bill

    Hi Bill,
    Nothing is really changed with the basics of the revised directions from the beginning, except it's now just more detailed and in bullet form. You say you did 3 other Windows 7 computers, but of course WinMail on 8 is different you know that right?.

    The answer to your problem is that you did not do the steps properly is all, and/or used the wrong x86 or x64 files. Remember unlike on 7, on 8 you have to (it's easier and all inclusive) to replace the entire folder, but it's not just one file like on 7. I have to say again first though this is a self-help thread really, and for computer savy people, and it is to empower you to simply follow the details properly, and in turn this empowers others that come here to do the same. Read my Post # 140 from just two weeks ago.
    Then do the procedure on Post # 10 but this time do it correctly. It's easy for advanced users, who are the only ones who should attempt this.

    Post back and tell us of your success, and please tell me if there is something in my directions I could of added which would of helped you to succeed better the first time, and if accurate I will be happy to edit my instructions even better. It's already easy to do for advanced users, but if we could make it easier with your or anyones suggestions, we will. We want to empower everyone who is able and wants to, to succeed. Thank you.
