Disconnect the internet/network connection and then re-do the install. Should work.

Hey

Actually vista saves the program,windows files of previous os as windows old in c:\ . You first delete the windows old folder then install windows live mail . It runs

Do you have any other Windows Live products installed (such as Live Writer or Live Messenger)

Check the installer that you used to install them. If they have a different language setting then you've found your problem.

hey jamie,

thanks for the reply but regarding other live products installed on my pc, that would have to be a yes, i've got live messenger installed (beta, including the lastest update) and that works just fine! i have no idea what to do to make it work cause i went into a bunch of forums to see if there's a solution but nothing helped Sad

it's still that same problem: i download the setup file, run it, it appears for about 7 seconds and then disappears! and thats it

I don't know if i was allowed to or anything, but the only way i could get WLMD to install on Vista or XP was to extract the Install_WLMAIL.exe file. this gave me a bootstrapper.exe and wlmail.msi. I deleted the bootstrapper and ran the .msi then it worked fine...

I had this problem too. I couldn't get Live Mail installed. Well actually to clarify, I had it installed, but the program crashed and no longer works. So I attempted to reinstall and it wouldn't let me. This is on Vista Home Premium.

The problem is the Windows Live installer. On Vista, go to c:\ProgramData and delete the folders for WLInstaller and WindowsLiveInstaller. Then run the install again, this will work. Unless the program stopped working, in which case reinstalling does nothing.
