Preferred Solution: Problems with Windows Live Messenger 2009 (v14)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problems with Windows Live Messenger 2009 (v14)

Are Date and Time Settings correct on the machine?
Have you tried this old trick?
Have you tried reinstalling it with original MS package?
I see wlsetup-custom.exe file on the screenshot, and its name does not sounds original to me. Usually it is wlsetup-web.exe or wlsetup-all.exe

Hello Tech Support Guy Forum,

I have been using MSN Messenger for years and enjoyed this IM program, but have been having problems using the Video Call option when trying to talk and see my contacts.
Whenever I select the Video Call action, the whole MSN Messenger freeze up and I will have to use the Task Manager to close it down.
If I choose the webcam invitation and the regular audio call, using each invitation by themselves and respectively, they work just fine.

I tried to go to Microsoft's support site, but seriously, it's a jungle. None of the FAQs were helpful to me.
My webcam seems to work just fine, but just not that function of MSN Messenger 2009.
Hope you guys can help me out (my system information is on my profile).

I'm quite fed up with it. I uninstalled it today because It wasn't working with an addon. When I installed WLM back, I tried to sign it but it prompt me to update my installed version. I was like WHAT THE HELL? The version I downloaded was straight from the developer's site. Which clearly stated "Newest Version" when I downloaded. Now, I'm unable to update it...Current version is 14.0.8089.726

Hi everyone. I reinstalled my computer a couple of days ago. Now, every time I check my e-mail on Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger runs automatically. I hate that, because it takes like 10 seconds to load it up.

Before I reinstalled the computer, that didn't happen. Can anyone give me a solution, please. I've been looking in google but I found nothing.

I already UNCHECKED the options that appear on Messenger which are: "Automatically run messenger when I log on to Windows", and "Allow automatic sign in when connected to the Internet".

I Unchecked them but the problem continous.

Please... I'm tired of that. Probbably if I use Firefox that wouldn't happen but I want to use Internet Explorer 8.

By the way, I have Windows Xp Professional, with Service Pack 3, Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Live Messenger 2009.

I really hope you can help me...

A:Help with Windows Live Messenger 2009

Are you checking your hotmail via Outlook Express? If so, go to tools, options, and uncheck the box "automatically log on to windows messenger".
I think that might be Windows Messenger starting (not Windows LIVE Messenger aka MSN Messenger).
If it starts up at startup, run it (go to C:\Program Files\Messenger and run Msmsgs.exe) and go to tools, options, preferences tab, and uncheck run windows messenger when windows starts.

Anyone having problems with opening Photo while on chat screen?

Every time I click on Photo while on chat screen the program closes, then i have to log on again to get back to the chat screen with the person I was chatting with. The other thing is if I click on Call a Computer the program closes. If I try to click on File to share a file the program closes. If i try to Call a phone I get an error Code 80ee0080.

I have uninstall and re-install three times. I also went through the registry to make sure Windows Live everything was out. I Re-started the computer and re-installed and i get the same thing. However, the web-cam work and i can chat.

I had Windows Live Messenger 8 and everything was working fine until I got the pop-up box telling me about the new version and I must upgrade. The thing is you don't have a choice.

Any one have any idea what may be happening or how I can fix this problem...

Hello,

I Don't want to download WLM 2009 from microsoft because they don't provide a .exe version to download it. My internet connection and I can't doing it with their system when you have to wait till the download finish.

Do you Know a downloadable Version for WLM 2009 ? I think the size is 24MB only (I don't need the other options like Live, Mail) just the messenger .

P.S : sorry if this is the wrong section.

Thanks in advance

A:Downloading Windows Live messenger 2009

I'm sorry Iceman, but downloading Windows Live Messenger from Microsoft is the only legal means of doing so. Any other way violates Microsoft distribution policy and is not allowed to be discussed here without getting banned. All you have to do is check only Windows Live Messenger to only install it.

My problem is that every time when I'm chatting with someone in Windows Live Messenger 2009 (Build 14.0.8089.726) which came preinstalled in my brand new ASUS laptop a few weeks ago , but the issue started a few days ago. So the problem is that every time I'm having a conversation with someone and I try to open the little window for choosing a wink or emoticon to send, Windows Live Messenger completely freezes for over a minute and doesn't let me choose a wink or emoticon to send , then while it's freezed I open the Task Manager to see what's happening and the CPU is on 5-10% usage and the ram in on 23% usage. So I don't get the freezing/lagging...

My laptop specs are the following :

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel Core 2 Duo P7450 @ 2.13Ghz
4GB of RAM (DDR2 800mhz)
320GB 7200rpm Hard Drive

From the sound of things, you should be getting sound. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? There might just be a small glitch that?s causing your sounds to disappear.

Try that and let me know how it goes.

But I can't type, I can't click and highlight MSN's window and I also can't see the messages I recieve from my contact,
It just freezes for about five minutes, and then comes back like nothing ever happened.

Hey all,

After upgrading last week, to Build 14.0.8064.206, everytime I try to start a Video Call with someone either they can't see me or themselves, or I can't see me or them. Essentially at least one of the views will not be working and is replaced by the 'no webcam' icon. Signing out & back in again doesn't solve the problem, rather it changes the view that doesn't work (i.e. at first I can't see the cam view of me on my comp. Then, after signing out and in, I can now see me, but the other person can't). I hope that makes some sort of sense.

Also, the 'View my webcam option is greyed out, but from running Audio & Video Setup on the main WLM window, the cam seems to be functioning correctly.

I'm not too sure what further info you would like me to give, but am more than happy to produce anything if required. I am running XP MCE 2005 (SP3) and using a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam if that helps any.

Thanks in advance

The issue consists of an intervention by the Windows Live Communications platform addon every time you log on to msg. As soon as the window containing the message mentioning the issue appears , it gives you no choice but to close the program, only to encounter the issue again.

To help isolate the issue, could you try a different program? I recommend Digsby: http://www.digsby.com/?utm_campaign=...tm_content=vid

You can just plug in your MSN ID, and chat with people without them even knowing you switched.

I have a HP Pavillon dv6000 with an intergrated webcam, and it comes pre-installed with Cyberlink Youcam software (and in case u ask, yes I do have the latest update of it). Im using Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and Service Pack 1.

Video calls with people who do not have Windows live messenger 2009 (or any of the beta versions) is perfectly fine and show is sending and viewing each others webcam. With WLM09 users, I can send and view my contacts' webcam just fine like always.

However since I installed the new messenger I cannot video call other contacts with the new messenger. The second I click the Video tab to start a call, my messenger freezes, and the same happens if I accept their call.

I found one way of going around it, under audio and video set up if I do not set the CyberLink Web Camera Filter as the webcam I want to use, i.e. I select the default Simplo Webcam, which is the webcam with no software, it works! The only problem is the video quality is TERRIBLE and dark when I choose Simplo Webcam for some strange reason. I have always used CyberLink in all my previous versions of messenger and it worked fine. All the advanced webcam settings, brightness contrast blah blah blah, are the same so I dont know why the video quality is so poor..

In the preview in audio and video set up the video is very clear and crisp either way. Thats about all the information I know.

Is the problem with the Messenger or Youcam? Can I improve the quality of the video output w... Read more

A:live messenger 2009 freezes in video calls

Has there been any development with this as I am having exactly the same issue. Video Calls are fine with people using an older version of messenger, but if they are using the current version like me it freezes as soon as we try to connect (if they call me, or I call them). I have tried the "fix" you sugested and it sort of works, but as you said, the video quality is extremely poor, and very laggy.
My laptop is also a DV6000 series but running Vista Ultimate x64 SP2
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey guys, I'm really stuck.

I've just downloaded Windows Live Messenger and I can't get it to sign me in.
Every time I click the Sign In button, it pauses for a few seconds and then a box comes up saying:

"Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service it temporarily unavailable. Error code: 800401f3".

I've been trying to sort out the connections but I have no idea what I'm doing, any help would be muchly appreciated.

Cheers.

Hi, new here. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, please move to appropriate one, thanks. :)

Basically I'm on Windows Vista 64-bit, loads of problems with Windows Live. I've always been using old msn, but I accidently now can't go back to it. So I've been struggling for hours trying to sort this, unless I'm doing something wrong, possibly.

Anywho the error is I sign in and straight away (1-5 secs) I get 'Windows Live Messenger has stopped working'. After which the program closes.

After all the trouble and errors I can't get past this one, I'll be honest it is REALLY infuriating me at the moment.

Before hand I used to get an error that it couldn't log in and that there may have been something wrong with servers, or something. I ended the process of the Nvidia Network Access Controller to solve that, but I get this new error now.

Help, anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Ok, does this happen to anyone else?
You go to bed, things are working fine, but wake up and it is screwed up?
The midnite gremlins always seem to play havoc with me!
Now when I login to windows live messenger, I get the "so and so wants to add you to their list" box for anyone and everyone who has ever been on my list or in my contact list. I am talking a hundred or more of these boxes I have to manually cancel!

This happened at work, but my home computer was ok.
Now it does it at home, but my new work computer doesn't do it

What is up with messenger?

If you say uninstall and reinstall, how does one save all the custom emoticons? And I did this at my first work computer and it made no difference! You would think that your profile and setup would be the same on any computer but with this it isn't, why not?

Anyone got an idea??????

[email protected] me if u want

Also, does xp have a fix or repair section where it will diagnosis itself and little things will be repaired-such as selective password rememberance, IE7 stuff?

I am having problems with Windows Live Messenger, I have windows Vista, could this be the problem? When I try to sign in, the message either says that my "IP Address is not correct" or that WLM is temporarily unavailable. I have uninstalled, and installed a couple of times, nothing is working. I have tried everything that the messenger help service advises.....NOTHING IS WORKING!!
Can anyone help with what to do.....or is there another messenger service I could use instead?

Hi all, Im hoping someone can help with the new windows live messenger which I have downloaded recently. I cant seem to access some of the content and am being given an error message of " your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly."

I have searched my security settings in IE and Mozilla firefox but it doesnt seem to make any difference.

Any help would be appreciated.......
 

A:windows live messenger problems

A few questions:

1) do you have any firewalls running? Some firewalls can be configured to block ActiveX content, as it a known route of infection.

2) Have you tried uninstalling, downloading a fresh copy, rebooting, and then re-installing. Sometimes this clears up "weird problems" with software.

This will help me and the rest of us see if we can't figure out the source of the problem.

The program is not sending the mails.

Hello,

Is it possible a firewall is blocking it? Try disabling any anti-virus/firewalls you might have.

You can also try removing the program and reinstalling.

I downloaded the newer version of windows live messenger, I had to update it because I could not log in. After updating to the 2009 version I signed in and I lost all of my contacts they are all missing . I then up graded by IE to IE8 thinking this was the problem. Well it didn't work. I checked all of my options out and they were what the shoud be. I went to the connections part of the program and noticed that there was and error in my connection I refreshed it and it is still there. I can't use the diagnose connection problems because I don't have access to it. I have removed the program and then reinstalled it and still nothing. I can't send out invitations to invite my old contacts. One of them sent me an IM and the program froze up my cursor had the hour glass beside it and stayed that way for a long time. I then exited the program and it said it was not responding. Can anyone help me. I am running Windows XP. Thanks in advance,
