I have a new one month old laptop with Vista Home Premium.
I just tried to open WinMail to check my email and got this error message:

"C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_windows-microsoft-mail-app_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0....\WinMail.exe is not a valid Win32 application"

WinMail will not open so I can check new messages or view saved messages.
Does anyone have any idea of what went wrong or how to fix this?
I am totally stumped!
Thank you for your assistance.

Well, lucky me! I fixed it.

Copy WinMail.exe (388KB) from C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-mail-app_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_ef216b8c52ca2227
To: C:\Program Files\Windows Mail folder.
