    Tried installing WLM and when it tries to run, I get two error messages:

    1. Windows Live Mail could not be started. It may not be installed
    correctly. Make sure that your disk is not full or that you are not out of
    memory. (0x80041161). [OK]

    2. Windows Live Mail could not be started because msmail.dll could not be
    initialized. Windows Live Mail may not be installed correctly.

    I've tried various solutions that have been suggested for users having
    msmail.dll issues, but none have worked for me. Anyone got any suggestions?

    I'm trying to install on an XP SP2 installation.

    Thanks Nigel, I did manage to get it to work in the end with another
    workaround that I found just after posting teh question. You're right,
    though, it wasn't worth the effort. Have now unloaded WLM, with no plans to
    ever use it again!!
