Windows Live upload Tool

  iscanut 16:27 03 Aug 2009

I use Hotmail and when I want to send photos, I use IE8 in order to use this upload tool. It was working when I last looked a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly, there is no longer the option of File or Photo under the Attach option. It does not show in the list of Add ins although it does show as installed in Add.Remove Progs ( Win XP ). The Repair option does not seem to have any effect. Can anyone help me get this option back again into Hotmail/IE8 ?

Hotmail have changed the way they set up attachments - no longer File or Photo, but just a browser window. So this presumably has affected how your upload tool works.

Yes, now works as Firefox does. Not the end of the world, but the upload tool was a quick way of attaching photos. Having since looked at other forums, as well as Microsoft Live help forum, it seems that I am not the only one affected by this.
