Windows Live Photo Gallery

  douglas1973 19:17 29 Dec 2009

I am using Windows 7 Professional and am unable to email images to send in Outlook 2007. When I select a photo (or photos) in Windows Live Photo Gallery and click E-Mail Outlook freezes and in the process of unfreezing (Control + ALT+ DELETE) I receive the following message:

"The operation failed because of network or other communications problems. Verify the connection and try again".

When this happens I am connected to the internet. Does anybody else have the same problem? Does anybody know how to fix it?

"the operation failed due to network or other communication problems. Check your connections and try again"
I was having the same problem...
1. I tried to replace and it didn't work
2. I then tried to delete registry key related to NAV and it didn't work either
3. what worked for me at the end was fixing this OLE problem:

Open the "run" command:
Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll

I hope this helps....

Thanks Technotiger. I have done as you have instructed and the following came up:


The module "D:\Windows\System 32\Ole32.dll" was loaded but the call to D||RegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as a search term.

D is my main drive in which Windows 7 Professional 32 bit is installed.

I am afraid, I am unable to give you any positive advise, other than to try the search as suggested.

I am still using XP, so have no actual Win7 experience.

However, having said that, have you tried running a Repair of Win7, might in your case just be a glitch within the OS or the Registry.

The problem has corrected itself. Thanks everyone.
