    The procedure is almost the same as windows 7 , but we will need a dll file.

    First , we do the same procedure as in windows 7 :

    a) Take ownership of winmail forder ( if you use windows 8x64 , you need to take oweneship of program files/winmail and program files(x86)/winmail). Remember to check the " show system files " before that.

    b) Delete all the files in winmail forder and replace them with the windows 7 / winmail files.

    c) Copy msidcrl30.dll to c:/windows/system32 folder

    d) Now , we have to register the above dll. Open cmd and type : regsvr32 "c:/windows/system32\msidcrl30.dll" and press enter.

    Reboot , just in case , and you're done !!
    It's not working. I typed it in several different ways and nothing. Are there any spaces skipped? Are the : at the start and the " to be used? How can I get this to work? I got one error - The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. Where do I go from here?

    How do I get WindowsMail on W8 to load the MSOE to load?


    How do I get WindowsMail moved to W8 from Vista to load the MSOE.dll? And how can I get that other dll to register that this forum said to install in System32. Nothing happens when I type in the command prompt, the info give in that thread. I need to get WindowsMail working on this new laptop with W8. I can't get to choose "Run As Administrator" using Command Prompt because that choice is not on the dropdown menu.

    I don't delete/replace files, but copy files into a new created folder.

    Read exact - where do you read "delete" or "replace" in the following ???

    • Rename "Windows Mail" to "Windows Mail 8" (for not to need take ownership)
    • Create new "Windows Mail" folder (so all registry references still being correct)
    • Copy content of "Windows Mail" folder from Vista (or a working version from Windows 7) into new created "Windows Mail" folder
    • Copy "msidcrl30.dll" into "Windows Mail" folder (from Windows 7 or the above attachment)
    • Run "Windows Mail"
    I did everything and WM still wont run because the MSOE.DLL can't be loaded. How do I get that dll to load?

    I did that and I'm still getting the error that the MSOE.DLL can't be loaded. How do I get that to load?
