.eml files will not open in Windows Live Mail

I have a new computer with Win 7 Ultimate installed. I am using Windows Live Mail to retreive my Hughes.net email. I receive a lot of emails with .eml file attachments. They will not open."This program does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or,if one already installed,create an association in the Default Programs control panel." There is no .eml file listed in the default programs. I never had this problem in Windows XP Outlook Express. I spent an hour on the phone with Dell's Solution Station and never made any headway except getting a phone number to Microsoft
support. I can't be the only person with this problem! Thanks for any help I can get.

I went to Microsoft link. The first solution required a total uninstall of WLM plus registry deletions. So, I tried the second solution which required a repair of WLM. It fixed the .eml problem. Thanks for the solution. Kudos to everyone who share their knowledge with anyone asking a question.
