    Installation of Windows Live Mail in WinXP SP3

    I have recently downloaded and installed Windows Live Mail in my daughter's
    laptop with Vista on it. I found it a useful alternative to Outlook Expresss
    that I have been using so far. I have made several attempts to install it on
    my WinXP SP3 but I invariably get the error code 0x80070643. My question is
    can Windows Live Mail be installed on WinXP? Grateful if some one could help.

    Windows Live Mail works fine with XP SP3.
    Did you install the last version (version 2009 14.0.8050.1202) ?

    Thank you for the reply and the interest. I tried to download it by clicking
    'Get it free' on the web site http://www.get.live.com/wlmail/overview. Since
    it did not install, I never really got to know the version.

    This link is the better.
    http://download.live.com/
    Once wlinstaller has been dowloaded, you choose that you want by checking
    boxes.
    Don't pay attention to the "beta" mention.

    Thanks for Aski and CBoom.
    I have tried to download from download.live.com but aborted because about
    half way thru I got the feeling that this won't work offline for drafting
    messages or reading incoming mail subsequent to downloading. As I indicated
    in my question, I was looking for a better substitute for Outlook Express.
    Can you please tell me from your experience whether it will work offline?
    Regards,

    Yes, it does work offline. It is basically just an enhanced version of
    Outlook Express.
