Thread: windows live mail freezes

    The first thing to try is a Repair Install of WLMail through Programs and Features, in case it is just corruption of a .dll file or a registry item.

    Failing that, as Gary and Winston suggested, you should delete (or rename) the relevant calendar Store/Cache* and allow it to be recreated when you restart WLMail.

    If you use Windows Live Calendar in WLMail by signing into Windows Live in WLMail, your WLCalendar data will be synchronised with WLMail's Calendar. If not, your old Default Calendar data will be lost.

    *The Calendar Store/Caches are located within a folder named 'Calendars' within the WLMail Message Store**.
    The Default Calendar Store ('DBStore' protected system folder***) is directly under this 'Calendars' folder.
    There are also folders named according to each WL ID, which contains that WL ID's Calendar Cache ('DBStore' protected system folder).

    **WLMail's Message Store is a directory named 'Windows Live Mail'. The path to the Message Store, in its default location involves a hidden folder, so ensure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked under Folder Options in Windows Explorer. To find the location of your message store, in WLMail go to Tools->Options...->Advanced [tab]->Maintenance->Store Folder.

    The default Message Store locations are:

    Vista & 7:
    %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    (C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail)

    %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    (C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail)

    ***The Default Calendar Store folder, named 'DBStore', is a protected system folder, so ensure that "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" is unchecked under Folder Options in Windows Explorer.

    (Windows Live Mail 2009 14.0.8089.726 on Vista Home Premium)

    I am using VistaHP64. I have the same exact complaint. WLM locks up
    trying to open a reply email or a new email. If you wait about 3
    mintures either will eventually open, wait some more and you will then
    be able to type on it. This has something to do with the spelling tab
    because when you click options and click the spelling tab it locks up
    for about 5 minutes as well. I have done a clean reinstall and exactly
    the same problems happen again. Something must have changed with the way
    Vista64 and this program interact on or about March 25th 2010. I have
    installed Thunderbird also but it's slower, not as integrated, and well
    I dont like it as much. I cant even get Windows Mail (comes with
    Vista64) to work at all. I enjoyed WLM up until March 25th and after
    that its been pure aggravation. It does not appear there is a solution
    to this problem fro MS or anyone else. I have tried everything I have
    seen online from renaming the stupid calendar to the clean reinstall and
    nothing absolutely nothing has helped.
