I recently tried to re-install Windows Live Essentials, but failed because the uninstall file wlarp.exe was corrupted. A quick Google research revealed that many other users had a similar problem.
Microsoft even had a support page for this, but unfortunately the download link to wlarp.exe wasn’t working anymore. After failing to find a reliable source for the file, I remembered that I might still have it on an old notebook. I did, and the installation worked!
If you were also looking for wlarp.exe, here it is: wlarp.exe
The .exe file is zipped because WordPress didn’t allow me to upload an exe file.
Just download & unzip. Hope this helps! 🙂
