WLM cannot open - error message 0x8E5E0408 - calendar contains corrupt data forcing WLM to close - I have treid to delete the calendars folder but it won't delete - needs administrator permission, thought I was the administrator - no-one else is!
I have had this problem before but since then had another with WLM persistently restoring storage folders et al, deleted and reinstalled WLM, calendar problem is back and I have forgotten how to deal with it.
OS windows 7
Help!

Hi, I have just taken ownership of the windows live mail folder the example is below you need to go to start ,search, and type:-cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" .

NOTE:- You will need to substitute your user name for mine (Paul) (Vistatest\paul), the cmds are in red (press enter after each)


Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]

C:\Windows\system32> Takeown /f "C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail"

SUCCESS: The file (or folder): "C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail" now owned by user "VISTATEST\Paul".

C:\Windows\system32> Icacls "C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail" /grant vistatest\paul:f
processed file: C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 0 files

C:\Windows\system32>

You should now have permission to delete or rename calendar.

Columns in WLM
my issue with WLM 2011 is the columns. The inbox column and the sent items column can't be changed independently. Every time one is edited the other changes automatically. I thought that they, like all previous windows mail columns could be changed seperately.
