welcome to just answer
it would be my pleasure to help you
tell me when you are ready
i received an email with a .wpostx file i can not open the file. they are pictures. there are 2 links to sky drive but they do not work
first of all .wpostx files are files that are outputed with windows live writer
you cannot open them with windows gallery
first of all you need to download it from here http://explore.live.com/windows-live-writer
i have it downloaded
can you please send me the file
how do i send it to you?
go to www.wikisend.com and upload the file
you will be given a file ID
paste it here so i can download the file
did i do this correctly?
yeah i think
give me a minute to download it
ok, and thanks so much for your patience. Very much appreciated :)
its my pleasure to help you
just to confirm its 1.8mb
yes 1.79 MB (1,880,064 bytes)
hold on with me i am downloading the windows live writer to try to export the images for you
now here is the news
ok im ready
actually extracting images from this file is not possible, since this file only holds blog information and is not actually accessible
why did however sent you this file, send it to you in this format
it appears to be a link to sky drive
VIEW SLIDE SHOW
This album has 80 photos and will be available on SkyDrive until 29/01/2012. the links do not work (i copied and pasted from the email.
how would i put the file on a blog? Would i then be able to view the pictures?
can you rather right click the link, then choose copy shortcut and paste it for me here
still they only come as text
can you save this page from the browser?
and upload it for me on www.wikisend.com as you did with the file
it is an email, the link does not go to browser
so can you write click and copy shortcut then paste it in a note pad
and tell me what you read
it just pastes as the text view slide show and download all
are you sure you right click on the link and choose " copy shortcut"
it does not give me the option to copy short cut / it says copy hyperlink
what are you using to see your emails?
outlook / i also tried from google website. same thing
what happens when you press on this hyperlink
and the wpostx file you sent me is an attachment to this email right?
i am still working on the file while we are talking
trying to open it
i researched and saw that windows live writer is supposed to open the file. I can't figure out how to do it
finally i was able to open the file
as i told you i got the page of the blog with the album but the pictures are not there
oh, so no chance in getting pictures?
its most probably that the security settings for the email
is preventing this blog page to show in your email
can i change my settings in outlook?
i am trying to check it
it is suggested that its in the outlook security setting
i am researching it
which version of outlook are you using?
i am following a new lead, it states in the page that the pictures are available on sky drive
which is one of the services of windows live
sky drive is an online storage for files
try going to https://skydrive.live.com
and logging in with your account and tell me what happens
are you still there
i added the file to sky drive. it will not open. it defaults to
what do you mean by added the file to sky drive
after you login to skydrive there is a link for photos on the left side
when you press on it can you see anything?
windows photo gallary - yes i added the file look at the top.
i can't see it of course
its in your live account
defaults to windows phot gallery ............can't open file / file format not supported or you don't have latest version
what file did you add?
do you mean the wpostx file
the 1.8 wpostx file
sky drive is like an online storage
where you can keep files, photos, etc..
the person who sent you the email
uploaded those photos on skydrive
for sharing with his contacts
is he a friend of yours?
did you try to open this email from your live account?
r u there?
yes i did. same thing it defaults to windows gallery
ok try to download this http://g.live.com/9uxp9en-us/dld_silverlight??WLXID=2c036669-4475-499d-98cb-8da632744263&RID=00b79e0420e&TID=1320160350503&lid=
its needed to be able to view the sky drive shared photos, maybe this is the problem
how did it go?
did you install microsoft silverlight?
what do i do now
try to open your windows live email and check this email again
did this work?
i just set up email , and forwarded. let me check now
most probably its not possible to check such an email using outlook, since it requires microsoft silverlight to be able to view the gallery itself
the account is still setting up
why are you setting up a new account?
isn't your email at live already?
i can't figure out how to get the email in live.
just clink on inbox
login with your email and password XXXXX
and then click on inbox to check your email
i don't know what my hotmail email is i am on that page, have an inbox. How do i tell
do you have a hotmail email?
or a live email?
i use my gmail account to log in
oh the problem is that you won't be able most probably to see the email unless you have a hotmail account
you can setup one in this case
and forward the email from your gmail account to your hotmail account
as sky drive sharing is a hotmail/ live service
give me a minute. i will forward email again. please.
did you create a hotmail email first?
i added gmail to open in hotmail.
the file is still sitting in my outbox it is pretty big
its 1.8 mb
the attachment is 1.8 the email is larger.
it's not working. i'm sorry but i give up.
i tried to help you as much as i could
you can ask your friend to give you access to his skydrive in some other way
or to resend it to your new hotmail email
please don't forget to hit the accept button so i can be compensated for my time
wish u the best
will you need anything else now?
if not please don't forget to hit the accept button so i can get paid for my effort
i have to go now
have a nice day
