• Are you able to install Eudora on Win 10?

    From ijones@jejejeje.it@21:1/5 to All on Wed Apr 14 19:11:57 2021
    Hi, I need to install Eudora 7.1 but on the new laptop with Windows 10
    but it is impossible.
    I get this panel. I attach a photo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/373nkeepzxqrq1w/Cattura%20Eudora.JPG?dl=0
    I put the "Change Account Control Settings" slider all the way down
    (so it's disabled) but I always get the same problem. Unable to
    install Eudora.
    Is there a possibility to be able to do this?
    Thank you for some info.

    I don't speak/read whatever that is, and since it is an image I can't cut&paste into a translation program...

    My best guess is that it asks you to run the installer using the administrator account.

    I'm also not familiar with any "Change Account Control Settings" slider -- My Win10 (and even old Win7 laptop) systems run with the full UAC
    security level.

    And yes, I have Eudora 7.1 installed on Win10 (but for the last two years I've been using Pandora http://www.drivehq.com/web/brana/pandora.htm

    Alternatively, it might be that you have Eudora configured in a way that it tries to ensure it is the default email application. Win10 moved
    the registry location that holds default application information. You have
    to turn off the Eudora check for default, and use the OS control panel to define Eudora as the default for email.

    This sounds like you don't have true admin rights on the computer (was it provided by some company? If so, the IT department may have set up some special group policy to prevent user installs/runs of non-approved

    You pay for major version changes... Just like you had to do with Eudora when it was being developed.

    Based on my log in Quicken, I have only had to pay twice -- the original in March 2018 (version 2.x), and for an upgrade in March 2019
    (version 3.x -- all the point updates have been automatic, currently on 3.6.6.1. What I did not like was that there was no notification that the "automatic" upgrade that changed from 2.x to 3.0 needed a new payment).

    I have a blind friend who has moved from Eudora to Pandora (and paid for
    it); we're still getting used to its wrinkles, but I think she likes it.

    You can use it for free - I forget what the limitation is; I think it's
    that you can have only one personality.

    My blind friend's husband (also blind) is running Eudora - not Pandora -
    fine under Windows 10; I don't know if he installed it under 10, or just
    let his machine upgrade from 7 to 10 (I know he did that) and Eudora
    continued to work.

    Your problem might also be that Eudora is trying to install in a
    folder that Windows 10 does not allow proper access.I seem to remember
    this being an issue with the INI file.

    Do a Google search on problems installing Eudora on a new Win 10
    computer.

    Search for: problems installing Eudora on Win 10 computer,
    you should get over 700k of hits, so this is a fairly common issue.

    I normally never install Eudora on a new computer. I just copy the
    complete folder that Eudora is in from my old computer to a new
    computer. Then I create a new Shortcut on the desktop. However, if you
    had it working on Windows 7, most likely you cannot use that same
    folder on Windows 10 due to the way Win 10 protects certain folders.

    Non hai capito. Non serve un nuovo account, serve che lanci

    installare alcunché.

    I installed Eudora maybe 2 years ago on my new pc with Win10 pre-installed. Under the special and only account that has administrator rights. Didn't
    run into any problem. All other users on my pc have limited rights only.
    That, plus the fact that I consider mailer, browser, etc. profiles to be
    *user* data that don't belong on the system partition, was reason to copy
    the Eudora profile to the resp. user sections on a non-system partition.
    Works like a charm for all of them.

    Allora non sei l'amministratore.
    Il computer è tuo? Controlla meglio l'account che stai usando.
    Altrimenti se la risposta è no, chiedi al tuo sysadmin.
    La risposta migliore comunque resta buttare nel cesso Winshit 10.

    Ultima soluzione, fai come me: Eudora funziona benissimo anche
    installata su un disco fisso esterno, in questo modo me la porto

    Still a few quirks -- and I just sent a bug report in that my copy has suddenly stopped automatic processing of Junk mail, and even defined
    filters with [move to junk] aren't working (other filters seem okay). It
    seems strange as the last update was April 2... Might be related to recent Windows update, which also corrupted Acrobat Reader (I had to uninstall
    Reader, download the off-line installer, and run that to get Reader to open again). Might try a fresh installer copy for Pandora...

    Hmmm, just downloaded, reinstalled, and opened Pandora -- and at least one junk message did get processed; don't know if that was before the
    install, or as part of the fetchmail after restarting it.

    sono sempre costretto ad installare di nuovo e sopra il vecchio

    I have copied / pasted all of Eudora to another laptop. All emails
    work fine but not yahoo.com
    On the main PC I had deleted the yahoo account with Thunderbird and
    then I had created it again.
    All this is strange because on the main PC the account with yahoo.com
    works fine, but not on the second computer.
    Why? Yet in the second computer Eudora is perfectly the same as the
    main PC. How can I solve the problem?

    Well I'm glad you fixed it, but it's still strange that it wouldn't install for you normally.
    There's no fundamental problem installing and using Eudora on Windows 10, I am and I know many others are too.
    Are you logged on to Windows 10 as an administrator?
    That's the only other thing I can think of which might have caused the error message you were getting, your user account didn't have the necessary rights.

    Yes of course, I tried as Administrator, both by creating a new
    administrator account and by trying to install it with the right mouse
    button on the file as administrator. But both options are unmanaged.
    Eudora is strange.
    Another thing I can't solve is that on the second computer Eudora
    doesn't download emails with yahoo.com account.
    On the first computer it downloads them fine but on the second
    computer it has problems with the server: SERVER ERROR ..

    That's the only other thing I can think of which might have caused the error message you were getting, your user account didn't have the necessary rights.
    Yes of course, I tried as Administrator, both by creating a new
    administrator account and by trying to install it with the right mouse
    button on the file as administrator. But both options are unmanaged.
    Eudora is strange.
    Another thing I can't solve is that on the second computer Eudora
    doesn't download emails with yahoo.com account.
    On the first computer it downloads them fine but on the second
    computer it has problems with the server: SERVER ERROR ..
    YET I have copied all Eudora folders and respective files from the
    first computer to the second computer. But I get this problem.
    Have both installations of Eudora got the Hermes update applied?
    In my experience, Yahoo servers will no longer connect with Eudora without it.

    Maybe yes, but I dont remmeber well if I installed the latest Hermes
    version.
    Could you confirm if I have to download from it please? https://sourceforge.net/projects/hermesmail/files/
    Thank you.

    EDIT:
    now I have just copied the 3 .dll files in Eudora folder from
    HermSSL folder.
    Then I installed vcredist.exe.
    But I get the same problem.
    Maybe had I to unnistall first the old HermSSL?

    Did you also copy the usercerts.p7b file across?
    It won't work without that.

    No, I don't see any usercerts.p7b in the HermSSL folder.
    Where can I find it please?

    Sorry, my mistake, I meant "rootcerts.p7b"!
    Did you copy that across?

    Since you told me this, I made 2 tests:
    1 ° I coped rootcerts inside Eudora foder, then I opened Eudora but I
    get the same problem.
    2nd I coped the 4 files: 3 dll files again and rootcerts file inside
    Eudora foder. Then I installed vcredist.exe again but I got the same problem.
    Eudora doesn't download emal from yahoo account.
    OK, you can check that the Hermes patch is working by doing a mail check and then looking in the properties for your Eudora personality.
    If you click on "last SSL info" it should show that it attempted a connection using TLSv1.2.
    If it still says TLSv1 the Hermes patch isn't doing its job.
    The only thing left is that you may well need to generate an "application specific password" for that installation.
    Did you do that for the other computer that's working?
    You need to go to the Yahoo webmail page with your browser, log in and look at your settings, and look in the security section.
    In there, there should be an option to generate a password for what they consider now to be an insecure client.
    When you've got the password (it will be four blocks of four numbers) you will need to use it in Eudora instead of your normal password.

    Later I will change the password as you suggested. But I will change
    the password even on the other main computer where yahoo works fine.
    I hope I will not ruini something on Eudora running well.
    Anyway I thank you!
    Later I will send the fedback

    I hope your other installation is still working OK, if not you will probably have to do the same thing there.

    When you say "Eudora foder" (folder), WHICH directory are you referring to?

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora
    ... which is also where the vcredist.exe is located in my version as a safety. Did you read the README.TXT file that comes with that ZIP file for
    the instructions?

    and NOT

    C:\Users\Wulfraed\AppData\Roaming\Qualcomm
    ... though based upon dates, the usercerts.p7b file was updated at the same time as the files in the previous location.

    Eudora doesn't download emal from yahoo account.

    So did you follow the instructions to IMMEDIATELY check what the "LastSSL" information has for that download attempt?

    The trick to installing Eudora on Win10 is, to put it into its own folder in the root directory instead of program files. C:\\Eudora
    Run setup as administrator.
    Win10 will want to put email files and attachments in its user directories, so you have to find them and move them to the C:\\Eudora folder, and I think you need to edit the eudora.ini file to point to the moved directories.

    I do not recall all the details, I found the instructions online but it was a year or two ago.

    And none of that is needed... I've run Eudora on Win10 since my Win7 drive failed and I had to buy Win10 and a new drive to recover.

    The ONLY trick is that you have to use Windows "default programs" to set Eudora as the email client, AND you have to turn off any option inside
    of Eudora that attempts to check and set itself as default. Reason: Win10
    (and likely Win7) moved the registry entry that defines default programs -- Eudora is still trying to write to the old location, which is not used by
    the OS..

    From my shortcut properties:
    TARGET: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe"
    START IN: <blanked out, no content>

    The shortcut was created in December 2016 (just shy of five years ago), and modified July 2017 (probably to blank out START IN).
