Recently I noticed that it had stopped syncing. I tried forcing it a few times (ie. clicking on send/receive) but it instantly came back with 'Sync failed'. My first go at fixing it (after trying a soft reset) was to switch account, assuming that I could effectively just reload all my messages without reinstalling. However, once it had wiped all my current messages, it wouldn't let me sign in again. I entered my password, clicked next and nothing happened.
Right, I thought, a reinstall is needed. So I dug out the installation exe and ran it. However, I kept getting a message saying something like 'Installation of windowslive.cab was unsuccessful' with no further details.
I didn't want to hard reset but it looked like it was my only option. So having done a full hard reset, I tried installing and got the same problem - 'Installation unsuccessful'.
This is so frustrating. It was working perfectly before and now I can't even install the damn app. I was starting to wonder if Orange had somehow updated my phone without me knowing to block Windows Live, but as so many other people don't have a problem it can't be that.
I saw the thing about the 30 day trial and wondered if it was connected, but again I thought I can't be the only one.
Help please! I want my hotmail back!
