Windows Updates broke my Windows Mail

    Question

  • Couldn't find a forum for my problem...

    I’ve been running VISTA Windows Mail under Windows 8.1 Pro since January because it didn’t import into Windows Live properly (a scrambled mess). (I fudged Windows Mail to work under 8.1 by copying a .dll)

    I have 15 years of Email organized in numerous folders by year.

    The latest round of Windows Security and KB Updates last week (146+) broke Windows Mail.

    I’m using Outlook 2013 now to get latest mail.

    Is there any hope of “undoing” one or more of the updates to get Windows Mail running again?
