Hi, I have Windows Live Mail on my desktop computer but I can't figure out
how to get it on my laptop. I tried downloading it again but it makes a
whole new account and have to make a new email addy. What can I do to get my
account to laptop.
Thank you,
Pippa

Windows Live Mail does not require one to create any account (mail or news)...press the button that says Cancel.

To 'get' your email and news accounts from one machine with WLM to another machine with WLM...

Desktop Pc:
1. Ensure WLM's menu is present(click on the small square[upper right of toolbar] to the left of the '?' and select Show Menu)
2. Click Tools/Accounts/<select an account>/Click Export
- save the file(iaf extension) to a flash drive (copy these iaf files to your laptop)
3. Repeat step 2 for all mail and news accounts


Laptop PC
1. Open WLM (do not add any accounts if prompted)
2. See step (1) above...enable WLM menu
3. Click Tools/Accounts/
- remove any unnecessary accounts
4. Click Tools/Accounts/Import
- navigate to the location on your flash drive or the folder where you copied the iaf files on your laptop
- Select an iaf file, click Open
5. Repeat step 4 for all mail and news iaf files

Thank you for responding. I did what you said with the desktop, but I can't
open WLM on laptop because I don't have it on the laptop, that's what has me
stumped.
Thank you,
Pippa.

You are posting using Outlook Express. OE is an email program that came
with Internet Explorer 6.
Windows Live Mail is an email program that may come on a new Win 7 computer.
In most cases, you will have to download WLMail. The only site for WLMail
is the download site. download.live.com/wlmail
WLMail will run on XP, Vista, or Win 7.

Could you been talking about the sign in for Windows Live? If you are, then
you can use the same Live ID that your desktop uses.
When you are using WLMail on your desktop, does it say Sign in under the
Close X or does it say your Live ID?

If Windows Live Mail is not installed on the laptop, all efforts setting up an email account in WLM are moot.

On your laptop go to http://download.live.com, download and save the full installer file

To learn how to save the full installer file See Step 5 and 5b in the following
Windows Live Essentials Availability
http://liveunplugged.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!F92775FC46A390CA!424.entry

Once the file is saved to your laptop, navigate to the saved file location and then install Windows Live Mail on the laptop
following the instructions provided earlier.

Thank you both for responding,
Yes, my default at the moment is O.E., because I cannot get WLM on my
laptop. I can sign in at the WLM web site using laptop but I wanted it on
desktop to save going to the site. I used to have it but my computer crashed
and now I can't get it back. Now when I use O.E., sometimes I want to save a
special email to a folder away from O.E., and now they open in Word (I have
Office 2007). I don't like that because on all the email opens in Word, I
can't click on a link I may want to go to in a saved email in Word, it's
very frustrating. Even if I could stop that I would be happy. I've also
downloaded the web installer, same thing I cannot continue with the
installation because it tells me I already have mail installed but I know
for sure I do not..

I have been to download.com and installed the installer file, but after I
agree to everything the next dialogue box "choose Programs you want to
install" and everything has a green tick next to it, Messenger, Mail, Photo
Gallery,Toolbar,Writer, Family Safety Microsoft Office Outlook,Microsoft
Live add in. When I click on the mail I'm told I already have it installed,
but I don't. When I navigate to Windows Live folder in Windows Explorer I
find the Windows Live folder there, but nothing to do with mail, I think
that is all Messenger etc. stuff. Does this mean I cannot install it on my
laptop?., if not I hope I can change the way saved emails open in Word, it
drives me nuts. I can use my windows live on the desktop computer.

I would appreciate it if you would tell me it can be done or not, so I can
then try to find out how to stop my saved emails opening in Word.

Many thanks,
Pippa.

I just had another thought, what if I uninstalled everything to do with
Windows Live, like Messenger and all those things that are listed, mail
etc., that have the green tick telling me I already have mail, then
reinstall everything, do you think then I could get my WLM on the laptop?.

I read that link to uninstall WLM, but as I don't have WLM on my laptop I
don't think it applies. I just thought if I deleted all of MSN messenger and
the other things listed I could then do an install of WLM or not, I just
want my saved emails NOT to open in WORD.. Even though when I download the
installer it tells me that mail is already installed, it is not. I am using
O.E., at the moment.

Did you look for these keys like the blog said?

Use Regedit (or your favorite registry editor) to delete the registry Keys
(if they exist)*

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail desktop
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail desktop
****

You are the one who said, " I used to have it but my computer crashed
and now I can't get it back."

I just checked in add remove and there are entries for Windows Live
Essentials, Windows Live sign in assistant,Windows Live upload tool, Windows
live sync. Should I delete them, or do they have something to do with my
ordinary Hotmail account & Messenger?.
thank you, Pippa.

The Windows Live Essential installer(used for Mail, Messenger, etc can not install a program if it detects an existing program)

Double Click on Windows Live Essentials
Click Uninstall
Uncheck Mail and Messenger and anything else you don't use(Office Live Add in, Outlook Connector etc)
- it will uninstall the items you checked..do not interrupt the process
Restart the computer when done
If you downloaded the installer file, find it on your laptop and double click it
Agree to the service agreement
Check the items you wish to install and use
- do not interrupt the process

Once done the applications you checked will be installed(note Messenger will start after completion, do not sign -> on close it)
Open WLMail (it will migrate messages and accounts from OE, if you do not wish to do this..you must rename the OE's Folders.dbx
file to Folder.old in advance of opening WLMail)
Do not sign up for a Hotmail address or Live ID if prompted, do not sign in with a Live ID
Import your accounts(you should have saved these as iaf files based on instructions in an earlier post)

Thank you, I will try this but I have to do it later because a family
emergency has happened. I have printed out your instructions. I want O.E.,
to be my default but it doesn't really matter as I think the instructions
about the .dbx files are a little too advanced for me, will show my Mother.
I will try later when I have time. Sorry about this.
Pippa.

Just one other thing, did you mean to uninstall from Add/Remove?, that's the
only place I see
Windows Live Essentials listed. Under All Programs (Windows Explorer), I
only see the yellow icon that says Windows Live with sub folders.
thanks again,
Pippa.

If you want OE to be the default..
OE is only available on Windows XP operating system.

These are your choices
XP - OE, Windows Live Mail, Outlook
Vista - Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook
Windows 7 - Windows Live Mail, Outlook

Only OE, Windows Live Mail, and Windows Mail..depending upon your o/s should be the default for *.eml files

Maybe Mom, will have better luck..

Hey Winston
I'm back for a little while, we have Windows XP Home, and want O.E., and
Windows Live Mail, we also have Hotmail accounts.
Would you please tell me if I should delete Windows Live Essentials from
Add/Remove, as I said before it's the only place that I can find Windows
Live Essentials. When I look in All Programs I just see the yellow folder &
that just says Windows Live, nothing about Mail. I really need to fix this
because I think it's my fault that this has happened.
thank you very much,
Pippa.
