Sure it is Outlook Express you have? This last shipped with Windows XP, and this cannot be upgraded to Windows10. Theoretically I suppose you might have Outlook Express if you upgraded from XP to Windows7, then upgraded that to Windows 10. That would however leave you running Windows 10 on some pretty archaic hardware.

Outlook Express does not run on any system past Windows XP as note above. So you need a new Email application.

Windows 10 Mail works fine, but I suggest you get a subscription for Office and use Outlook. It is a better tool.

Two things that are not clear

#1 - Outlook Express does not run nor can it be installed on anything beyond Windows 'XP
#2 - If you upgraded from W'XP to W10 then it would have had to be a full clean install of W10 since you can't do an in-place upgrade from W'XP to W10
#3 - What exactly does v0.5 refer to in your subject line? The last version of OE was 6.0

So how exactly was this system upgraded? From what to W10?

Regardless, as everyone else has stated, Outlook Express cannot run on W10.

The question as asked was properly answered:  Outlook Express does not run on Windows 10 (or anything past XP)
