Thank your prompt response.
Yes I followed the steps on page below and the problem still continues (remains the same) as i mentioned in my previous post the problem is I can not open .eml files when the outlook express program is open.
I have plenty emails saved as separate files (.eml) and this is why we try to open and work with them.
I double click on an .eml file and the window with email message does not appear.
If i close the outlook express program and try the same procedure to open .eml file the window with email appears and we can see the email contents.
The same happens when i do a right click on the email and choose "open with" and select outlook express

Finally we have found a solution to our problem, reading some previous posts, the solution was to disable UAC (User account control) to control panel and after the restart of windows all is okay.
Thank you.

I still have this problem.
I have made Outlook Express my default mail app. I have disabled User Account Control.
I am running Windows 10 Professional, and RunAsXP Outlook Express 6 version 2.1.1.

Have you tried to diable User Account Control(UAC)?
Do you have problem opening eml files (double click on them) when oe is running? Have you tried when oe is closed do they open?

Yes. I have disabled User Account Control.

The error occurs when:
1) I open Outlook Express first.
2) I try to open an eml file on my harddrive by double-clicking the file, or by selecting it and pressing enter.
The eml message does not open.

I also discovered another similar error:
1) I open one or more eml files from my harddrive first.
2) I then open Outlook Express.
All of the eml files from the harddrive close, and, then, Outlook Express opens.
