Re: O E classic again

I believe like a lot of things, its gone past its support date, which means yes, you can probably still use it but nobody is fixing bugs etc.
I've noticed that some older updates for no longer supported versions of Word have also been pulled down causing later versions of windows to report that lots of automatic updates failed with unable to download the update. It seems they have forgotten to tell 7 and up updaters not to keep trying to download removed office updates, which is a little bit messy in my view.
Most of the ones I see are updates for powerpoint, word and Escel etc in Office 2002/3.

Hello Gene,

It seems that, after 10 January 2017, it is no longer downloadable from
Microsoft.

Best Regards, Jim.

What do you mean Live Essentials is no more. People still use it who are
using Windows 8 or 10. I don't know why it disappeared in the upgrade but
it can be reinstalled.

Hello all,

I just did a system upgrade for a friend and found that live essentials is
no more. He didn't go all the way to windows 10 so he is stuck without an
email client. OE classic is inaccessible, but I paid not as much attention
to the discussions on it as I should have. So, I installed it and was less
than happy with the result. My friend is even more disgruntled as you can
imagine. Is any work being done to make an add-on to support OE classic?
If so, how can we contribute? Neither of us are coders, but we may be able
to help with funding and testing.

Thanks,

Erik
