I have been trying all day to download Windows live mail so I can use all my e-mail accounts but although the download says it has downloaded I get a message indicating an installation problem. I have also been trying Google Earth with a similar result
I have given up on Windows live mail and installed Thunderbird instead. This went in OK but it was a bit baffling to find out how to add a second email account.
I have two accounts, one with my ISP and the other with btinternet.com. In neither case does thunderbird read any of the messages in my in boxes, the Bt account will send messages to the isp account but not vice-versa.
It seems Google earth does not have a windows 8 version which is a great pity as it was a tremendously useful tool.
