ORIGINAL Windows Mail in Windows 8 x64

By
Many of you may have tried to enable the original Windows Mail in Windows 8 like you did in Windows 7. This method does not work anymore in Windows 8. You have to add one other file. To enable this, copy the msidcrl30.dll file to C:\Windows\system32. Then delete the Windows Mail folder in Program Files and replace it with the one you downloaded. Enjoy!

Cant get this to work in RTM.

Windows Mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows Mail message store. Windows Mail was unable to locate its message database. If you've moved the database files to a new location, click OK to reset the database path to that location. Otherwise, click Cancel to proceed, any existing messages found will be available under Orphaned Accounts. (0x00000000)

THEN this...

Windows Mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows Mail message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. (0x80070057, 183)

Any help?

This is for Windows 8. If you're looking for Windows 7, go through my gallery.

I kind of stopped using Google Chrome, it has some problems with Flash games on facebook (they freeze) and I don't use comodo anymore, Microsoft did a great job with Windows Firewall as well as with Windows Defender :D

I only did this because Microsoft didn't include it in Windows 8 OR Windows 7. Google Chrome is a browser that still runs in Windows 8.
