    Stationery in Windows Mail

    Dear all,

    A new computer and a new Operating System. Sounds great. But I am a
    stationery maker and now I have problems. I have heard there are some
    problems with Windows mail and stationery. Is there a knowledge base? My
    problems are mainly viewing applets -Windows mail closes down on each
    stationery with an applet in it. And also Metacreations files do no longer
    show up...
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to be able to enjoy making stationery in
    Windows Mail? Thank you so much in advance!

    Best regards,
    Karin*CatMar

    The stationery default location is now under the message store location (see
    www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm). In order for some to display correctly,
    WinMail has to be put into the restricted zone under Tools | Options |
    Security. Otherwise, most work okay.

    I've looked at many in the Stationery newsgroup while testing Vista and they
    seem to work fine for the most part. There may also be some IE7 security
    settings that may need changing.

    A lot of Applets won't work without tweaking the registry.
    There are also security settings in OE that have to be changed

    Re: Stationery in Windows Mail

    Thank you for your kind help, Steve. I'm sorry I'm a bit late responding,
    but I have been away for a while.
    I can indeed see a lot of stationeries. It is stationeries with Applets in
    them that just close Windows mail down. I have now had to leave one of my
    favourite groups where I have been a member for a long time just because of
    this. Changing the DEP settings has not helped and adjusting the security
    levels does not help either. I am very sad about this.
    I cannot go back to my old computer with Windows XP because I am disabled
    and need this special computer. So I am at a loss here, really.

    But thanks anyway.
    Karin

    Hi, I am having the same problems, I have followed all of the instructions
    given to me and the ones in the E-Book. I still cannot view the stationery
    with Applets. Is there anything else we can do??

    Re: Stationery in Windows Mail

    Kerry, you may want to take a look at the settings and requirements for
    stationery here: http://richard-and-michaela.com You can click the first
    link you see: 'viewing requirements' ...and also go to the drop-down menu to
    'about and misc' > 'requirements & settings'. There you will see everything
    you need for viewing advanced stationery in OE and Windows Mail including
    excellent screenshots for the settings in OE and Windows Mail.

    In IE, you only need to change one security setting: 'Allow script-initiated
    windows without size or position constraint' ...from the defaults, and in OE
    or Windows Mail, you only need to change 2 security settings: 'Internet zone
    (Less secure, but more functional)' and uncheck 'Block images and other
    external content in HTML e-mail'. We recommend that you do not change any
    other settings from the default security settings.

    Does the applet in the attached .eml work for you? It should if you have Sun
    JRE only installed. For XP users, it will display in the .eml message and
    Vista users will see an open button that when clicked will open the applet
    in IE. We recommend that you do not install MS JVM since support for it ends
    at the end of this year and Microsoft is telling everyone to move to Sun
    JRE: http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/java

    You should not need to "tweak the registry" to view applets or anything else
    in stationery including embedded EOTs, embedded flash, metacreations, etc.
    if they are scripted correctly.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Richard

    Re: Stationery in Windows Mail


    Ok, since this is somewhat related to what has already been talked about
    in this thread, I have a question of my own. I am a script writer for
    stationery that can be used in either OE or WinMail. I have discovered
    today however that I am unable to install the required dll's to be able
    to use the DX transform filters and MetaCreations filters. I am in the
    process of taking classes for script writing and these are required
    elements of the lessons I am currently working through. Does anyone
    have any idea how I can get these things installed? Every time I try I
    end up with an error telling me that it couldn't be done. I know how to
    do this in XP really well, however now using Vista things seem a whole
    lot more complicated for installing required dlls for my script
    writing.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Re: Stationery in Windows Mail

    fraoch,

    Do you have the dxtmeta2.dll (may be uppercase DXTMETA2.DLL - doesn't
    matter) in your Vista windows\system32 folder? If you need the dll, you can
    download it from our site (link below). If you already have the dll in your
    windows\system32 folder, you should only need to register it. I'm guessing
    you tried start|run and then:

    regsvr32 dxtmeta2.dll

    If that gave you an error message or a message saying the register was
    successful and yet the metacreations filters still didn't work for you,
    there's something else you can try. Go to:

    http://richard-and-michaela.com/?viewing_requirements

    On the left of this page is a downward pointing arrow. Click on it to
    download the zipped file and save it. When you unzip it, you'll see several
    files including the metacreations dll which you may already have in your
    windows\system32 folder. You should read the readme text file. Also, there's
    a file named: registerMetaCreations.bat. If trying to register the dll the
    normal way didn't work for you, you can right-click on
    registerMetaCreations.bat and select 'Run as administrator' and follow the
    prompts. If you can run it as administrator then hopefully this will get the
    metacreations filters working for you.

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

    Frank, just FYI, the MetaCreations transition filters have been used in
    advanced stationery for years. They are used in addition to, and in
    combination with, the Microsoft transition filters. The MetaCreations
    filters are DX transform filters like the MS filters and they work fine in
    OE and Windows Mail. They are used in stationery scripts just like the
    MS filters are, and the MetaCreations filters provide some cool additional
    transition effects. The MetaCreations file is: dxtmeta2.dll ...and it is
    copied into the windows\system32 folder (Vista / XP / 2K) or windows\system
    folder (ME / 98). It then has to be registered for the MetaCreations filters
    to work.

    Normally to register the MetaCreations filters, you go to:
    'start' > 'run' and type in (or copy and paste):

    regsvr32 dxtmeta2.dll

    ....and hit enter. That has always worked in the past with XP and earlier
    versions of Windows. It did not work for me with Vista HP so I created a
    batch file containing the above command to 'Run as administrator' in Vista
    and that did work to get the dll registered and working fine for me in
    Vista.
