I need your help. I get the following error message every time I open Win Live mail. I hit "Ignore" and every thing seems to operate OK. I just upgraded to Win 7, SP 1 from Vista, and this is my first time using Win Live mail. I used Windows mail, before, with Vista.

Assertion Failed: Abort = Quit, Retry = Debug, Ignore = Continue

Failed to initialize Shared Canvas: System.IO.fileNotFoundException:
Could not load file or asembly ‘WindowsLive.Writer.Localization,
Version-15.4.3508.1109, Culture = neutral,
PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35’ or one of its dependencies. The
system cannot find the file specified.
File name: ‘WindowsLive.Writer.Localization, Version = 15.4.3508.1109,
Culture = neutral, PublicKeyToken = 31bf3856ad364e35’
(Assembly rootAssembly, String installationDirectory, String
settingsRootKeyName, String productName)
WindowsLive.Writer.PostEditor.ContentEditorFactory.Initialize (String
RegistrySettingsPath, IcontentEditorLogger logger, IcontentTarget
ContentTarget, IsettingsProvider settingsProvider)

WRN: assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value
[HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly
bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value

At ContentEditorFactory.Initialize(String registrySettingsPath,
IContentEditorLogger logger, IContentTarget contentTarget,
ISettingsProvider settingsProvider)

I re-installed WinLive Mail over the existing one, and it repaired WinLiveMail and got rid of the error. Issue is closed.
