Thunderbird U3 won't run under Vista - Anyone know how to get this to work?

I downloaded Thunderbird U3 and it runs fine on my XP machine. When I try to run it on a Vista machine, after asking for permission twice I get an error message saying it cant find the exe. This is a serious problem for me. The other more stupid (on my part) thing is that I set up TB to handle all my mail but made the dumb mistake of moving all my yahoo and gmail to the usb with Thunderbird and the originals were deleted. Is there a quick way of getting these back into Yahoo or Gmail (I doubt it). Also if there is no way to run the u3 version under vista does antone know if just the portable app will run under vista?

I'm using the latest U3 version and my other U3 apps run fine under Vista

Thanks!

Chris

Well...

The normal portable App should run fine under vista.
U3 support by this site will be driôpped so it is best to use the normal version and Smithtechs Shortcutcreator 4 U3.
As for your emails:
They should be in a hidden folder on the U* drive. I don't own one so I cant help you but copying them over to a clean normal portable install should work. Maybe you have to adjust somethings but I cant help you with that.
Maybe someone else can.

Thanks - Shortcut creator worked great!

Shortcut creator was just what I was looking for. Now I can run both U3 apps and PortableApps from the same menu. You've been a big help. BTW - no problem locating the emails but there is no easy way to get them back into Yahoo other than forwarding them
