Windows Live 64-bit?

B

Is there a 64-bit installer for Windows Live (WLinstaller.exe) ? The
program only installs in the (x86) folder, and downloaded components such as
Live Mail, Photo Gallery etc appear to be 32-bit only.

Currently, there is only the 32-bit version of Windows Live.

Windows Live products are currently 32 bit. Personally, I don't see the
significance of them even needing to be 64 bit. 64-Bit really is about
addressing more memory beyond the limitations of 32 bit Windows. You must
also understand that 64 bit applications require more memory. So think of
this as a sound decision.

Why do you want 64-bit versions?

Are you, per chance, having the same problem I am having trying to use the
WLInstaller downloaded from Windows Live Mail. I get the message when
trying to use it 'WLinstaller.exe is not a valid win32"? So far there has
been no answer posted in the WLMail group. I have not had any problems with
any other installers.

Interesting, I used that same installer to install the whole sweet of Live
applications on my system. I do remember during the beta the installer was
not compatible with 64 bit Vista but was promised by the Live Team for RTW,
so strange to see it still persisting still.

It would be nice to have something that handles my Hotmail accounts without
having to waste time using IE for each individual account. This worked for
a short time right after RTM but a newer version wouldn't connect to the
internet (required per the message) even though I tried with both my
satellite and dial-up connections. Then later the installer problem
re-appeared not even allowing the install. They must have their lowest
quality programmers in this group. :-((

Makes sense I guess. I'm just thinking that Vista x64 comes with 64-bit
Windows Mail, but I've read that Windows 7 does not have a mail program as
standard, so would require using a 32-bit version of Live Mail. Seems
strange but not a big issue.

No, the installer worked fine here.

What I remember happening is I had a copy of the Windows Live Installer
executable I got from a friend at school. When I tried to install it on my
XP Professional x64 installation, it triggered some incompatibility message
and requested an update needs to be installed from Windows Update. After
installing the update, it placed a new version of the Windows Live Installer
on my desktop and installation went well. It seems there is indeed some
issues with it at times or because the programs are installed over the
Internet, new versions of the installer are required when changes to the
programs are made on Microsoft's servers.
