Hi All,

I have the Contacts gadget on my sidebar, when I click on the email link, I get an error that the application is not found. I am using Windows Mail,

How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Heeter

Which Gadget is it? Was it created by Microsoft?

Thanks Matt,

I would believe it is created by MS, it is a default gadget in the "Add Gadgets" section of the sidebar.

Update: I have been flipping through the registry, and finally found the registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command\default
I have modified the filepath to winmail.exe, but now it starts winmail, but does not open the "Compose" window. It just opens the winmail.exe process, but not the app itself. Will continue to fidget around with it.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Heeter

Try adding the following to the end of the path: /mailurl:%1

e.g. "PATH TO WINMAIL.EXE" /mailurl:%1

I don't use Windows Mail on my Vista boxes so I have to way of testing it.

Hahaha, That did it, Thanks a million, Matt.

If you were here, I'd pinch your cheeks....LOL

I tried other extensions but not this one, didn't know about this one....


Thanks again

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
