windows mail under Program Files (x86) starts 2 process - 32-bit windows mail and 64-bit windows Mail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Vista Business x64 operating system. when I start windows mail (email client offered in Windows Vista) from 64-bit location, it starts only ONE process named "WinMail.exe"

    C:\Program Files\Windows Mail>WinMail.exe

    However, when I try to start 32-bit Windows Mail from 32-bit location, it always start 2 process -- one 32-bit Windows Mail (WinMail.exe*32) and another 64-bit Windows Mail (WinMail.exe). Why?

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Mail>WinMail.exe

    I have issue due to this. My application is 32-bit application and I am trying to access 32-bit Windows Mail and accessing it's folder structure programmatically, but it failed as I am getting 64-bit process ID. Even using 32-bit process ID, it fails to provide me folder structure.

    The API called is -- TreeView_GetItem()

    Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?



    Thanks, Shailendra
