Windows Live Mail contact load error, live mail must close RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit and I tend to keep it up to date. The most recent set of updates included Windows Live Essentials which gave me a new version of Windows Live Mail. I installed this to be greeted by the following on start up

    Contacts failed to load. Windows Live Mail is incorrectly configured, please re-install.

    and in a second window

    Sorry, something unexpected happened and Windows Live Mail must close. Your most recent changes may not be saved.

    Obviously I tried a repair. Then I tried to uninstall and reinstall. Then I tried renaming my contacts folder as several forum threads suggest this.

    So far no luck.

    Any Suggestions?
