Windows Mail is included in Windows Vista but it is removed from Windows 7 and Windows 8. But on Windows 7 it is easy to reinstate Windows Mail simply by deleting the inactive Windows 7 Windows Mail program file and replacing it with the Windows Vista program file.
Windows Mail can be installed on Windows 8. But the dill file needed to run Windows Mail is not included in Windows 8 like it is in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.So in order to get Windows Mail working in Windows 8 you need to copy the Msidcrl30.dill file from Windows 7 or Windows Vista onto Windows 8.Here is how to install Windows Mail on Windows 8.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview which is a Beta version of Windows 8 was released on 29th February 2012. Before that I was using Windows 8 Developers Preview which was the first Beta version of Windows 8.
Windows 8 is the new version of Windows that may be released some time this year. A lot of people think that Windows 8 is different from other versions of Windows, but it is not really. Most of the Windows XP and Windows Vista software is working on Windows 8. And you can also run software for Windows 2000,98 and 95.
