Hi - Recently my Windows Mail V6 will not allow email attachments to be opened reporting "Command fails to execute". I have unchecked "Do not allow attachments to be opened" box in Tools - Options - Security but it makes no difference. Only change recently was installing Internet Explorer V8. I have Vista Home Premium V6 SP2 from July 2008. If anyone had the same problem and knows the answer I would appreciate some help. :cry

From what I can see, you are not alone. The following advice appears to have worked for some.

This site wrote:

Go to default programs, either from the start menu or in Control
Panel>Set your default programs>wait for the list of programs to
populate>select Windows Mail and ensure that it is set as default.

Select Internet Explorer and do the same.

Also while in the Default Programs, click on "Set program
access and computer defaults." Select Custom, and
then select Internet Explorer. Then Windows Mail & Click OK.

If you still have the problem, delete
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5"
and the problem should be cured.
