Preferred Solution: Error code 80040154 MSN Live

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Error code 80040154 MSN Live

You need to re-register msxml3.dll. Just follow the steps below.

Windows XP: Start --> Run

Type this in Run: REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\msxml3.dll

If "DllRegisterServer succeeded in C:\Windows\System32\msxml3.dll is succeeded." appears go to STEP 2

If the message does not appear you have to install the file msxml3.dll. It can be downloaded here..

Now, Restart your computer and log in with Messenger, If following the errors appear:

- Make sure that internet works correctly. Try to open some websites and surf them.
- If the error goes on, delete the cache DNS entries.

Windows XP: Start --> Run

ipconfig /flushdns

If the error goes on, just control your firewall and then try to log in with Messenger
Good Luck!!

I've tried the fix under how to solve this from MS, nothing seems to be working, I've got Version 2009 14.0.8064.206 which is the latest i believe... Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this working? Thanks.

Here is a link to the MS solution - Windows Live Help - I found a solution, some installer file (contacts setup file).

Hello Welcome to SF,

I have seen this error before users have tried lot of steps finally gave up. I guess the best option would be to use Digsby or Trillian which will login to the Windows Live Server and retrive your Contact list. Its really good alternative.

Good Luck,

I am currently using windows 7. I have tried to sign in to Windows live messenger and a window constantly pops up. The window says "We can't sign you in to Windows live messenger. Signing in to Windows live messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable.Please try again later. Error code 80040154." I have clicked "retry" many times and even restarted my computer. The error still pops up and I can't sign in. I can only sign in on the website. I really want to sign in on the automatic Windows live messenger that came with the windows live essentials download, but it just won't let me. I don't know if using a belkin wireless internet adapter has anything to do with it. ANY suggestions?

Help, I'm just about ready to put a rather large hole in my laptop.

It's taken me 3 days of arguing to get Windows Live Messenger Installed again. But got there in the end.

Now, when trying to sign in, it comes up with "service temporarily unavaliable" and the error code is 80040154.

I've downloaded the msxml3.msi file. That didn't help.

I tried something else from another thread that involved executing a program.

That didn't help.

Please help me before i blow the laptop to pieces..

Boy if anyone can figure it out I would be grateful. When I was signing into MSN live messenger I got a message failed because the service is temp unavailble. I looked on msn and did a clean uninstall then did a reinstall from download on msn live. It still did not work and I got the same message. I also tried several other things I run: MSXM13.msi did not work. I tried %windr%system32\regsvr with all the dll for every file that was listed on internet pertaining to this error and nothing works. I can get into my mail account with no problem just can't get into messenger live. I am using XP Pro on inspiron 9200 notebook. This program worked before.
After much work and time I found a way to get on the windows live messenger. I opened my Hotmail account and then clicked on messenger low and behold it said available I was able to open it by selecting a name of an available person and I was on.
I am going to try all the stuff but I think it will work this way. For some strange reason it will not sign in directly to windows live messenger from my computer without going to hotmail first. But I still can't video from this site and that is what I want to do. Bummer I thought I found it.

Hello experts,

I have ASUS Essentio mini-pc with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 installed.
I did run virus checker, spy checker, several registry cleaners.
I spent a week on it , as well Microsoft support logged in for an hour.
I did run the batch file re-registering DLL's.
The original error 80070424 is gone since I run the "ErrorFix" utility.

My recovery CD form the manufacturer is only to wipe out all what I have installed and reload the "vanilla" system. Windows repair option is not available.
This is for me out of question, to many programs are installed on my system.

Here is the problem I think:
Windows installer is missing,
Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable installation fails. error code 1603
"Windows update" does not work, error code: 80040154

1. Is there any way to restore the Windows Installer files ?
2. Upgrading to Windows Vista Ultimate version will fix the missing files ?

Any other suggestions?

A:Solved: Windows messenger essestials- error code 80040154

Hello, All. I apologize if there's any lack of information.

I am having difficulties with Windows Live Messenger (Latest, updated version. 14.0.8089.0726, I believe.) with the "80040154" error. The error goes along the lines of "Service temporarily unavailable, please contact your.." the usual stuff.

I'm on an Asus K50IJ notebook running Windows 7 home Premium 64 bit. This problem came up quite randomly. I connected to the internet several days ago, opened WLM, and noticed a strange delay in it opening. Finally, it did. Afterward, it had not saved my username and password as it always did. When I went to type this is, it took around 3 minutes for the letters to appear.

I thought this was strange but went with it, and, upon logging in, it would instantly open the error. I've tried numerous things and nothing has worked so far. I've been using pidgin in the mean time but really would rather get WLM back up and running.

Yes, I've run all tests mentioned in the "Read before posting" section multiple times since this started, AntiVirus, multiple spyware programs, and anti malware. No results found.

I've gone through windows solutions which did not work. The fixes were first to reregister MSXML3.dll by using "REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\msxml3.dll" in the command prompt. It succeeded, I restarted the computer, and tried again. No solution. Though, they did not specify anything different for Windows 7.

Any help would be apprec... Read more

Ive received this error while trying to log into my windows live messenger. It happened 'all of a sudden' and nothing 'problematic' led up to this event. I followed the instructions for the link that was given with the error message -- and verified that I DO have msxml3.dll. I still downloaded it and restarted the computer to receive the same message when trying to log into live messenger.

I downloaded zap messenger, and got rid of live messenger. Re installed it. Same message. Downloaded msxml3.dll and same thing all over again.

Please help! Thanks in advance.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my desktop computer which has 3Gb of RAM and Windows Update continues to nag me that I need to upgrade to SP2.

I have tried to do so over and over again but every time it fails and I get the error message "ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED (0X80070005)".

Now from my research I gather this error message is telling me that I am trying to install SP2 without sufficient privilidges but I am actually logged in as an Administrator.

Things I have tried as suggested in forums and elsewhere in the internet:
1 I have "Re-armed" Vista - whatever that means. Still SP2 install failed.
2 I have disabled Windows Update, renamed the existing SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder and created a new SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder, re-enabled Windows Update and still SP2 install failed.
3 I have used subinacl.msi to run a batch file to reset permission settings just in case I was mistaken about my Administrator login but still SP2 install failed!!!.

I do not know what else to do.

Interestingly I cannot run Windows Media Player 11 either. When I try to run it I get the following error message "The file wmplayer.exe has a version number of 11.0.6001.7000 where 11.0.6001.7008 was expected. WMP is not installed properly and must be re-installed. Do you want to install the player from the Microsoft website?"

A:Error Code 80070005 and lost will to live

have you tried downloading SP2 to a folder then right clicking and running it with administrative privillages? or tried running windows update itself with admin privillages and then try installing SP2?

if that doesnt work and have still not got any closer to solving your problem, you might consider backing up just your files (no system settings or program files) and restoring the OS to factory settings.

after restoring, you could eliminate the possibility of anything going wrong again by doing the following:

disable automatic updates the first chance you get.

then install SP1 followed by SP2 Manually

then on to install other updates available through windows update (you could try running WU with admin privillages)

after that just install your programs i.e WMP11 plus any security software/s and there shouldnt be any problems.

My roommate can get onto msn messenger just fine. I can't.
I have checked and rechecked and checked again my firewall settings (pc-cillan) and they are fine. I have even shut it off to see if I could connect and no luck.
I have ran through the list of dll's and they have all succeeded.
I have purged all cookies and temp files.
I have deleted the msn contacts folders so they'd reload.
I have ran my regcure and my driver updater too. Everything is fine there.
Short of throwing the pc through the window, any other suggestions? I might have missed a few things that I have tried since I have been at this for hours and hours now.

Based on the error code you have provided, it seems that the password you are entering is an invalid one. May be it was hacked… or if your password has expired cannot be confirmed. I suggest you to contact the support team of Windows Live immediately since it might be something very serious.

Back in December of 2009 there were threads on this forum regarding this subject. At that time I had not experienced the problem, but this month this problem showed up on my computer. I finally found the solution at this link, and thought I would pass it along to others since the problem still exists for some. After clicking on the link below, you will likely need to translate the page from Italian to English, but that ability is embedded in the page. After translating look at solution point 2 and there you will find a link to the solution. I was a bit fearful of possible harm from downloading a file from an unknown source, but finally did download and run the file and my program was fixed in a flash. The link:

I just installed the latest cumulative update and when I checked reliability history it listed a hardware fail event, livekernelevent code ab. Anyone know what that's about? PC seems fine though. And I rebooted a few times and was unable to repeat the error, bit concerned by it though!

EDIT - seems to be a bug in the latest cumulative update as we see the exact same in our other machine! Possibly triggered by signing out of one user account and into another. As I can't then subsequently repeat the error I think it's a one off that happens initially after the update but will monitor the reliability history closely to see if it happens again on either of our machines

Yeah, stumbled across this thread while trying to figure out the problem. Seems like it's a bug right after installing the latest update like you said since it's happening on multiple machines. I only have one user account on my computer so it seems like that's not the problem.

If you do a search online for the error code 0x800CCC0F while using Windows Live Mail there are so many people encountering the same problem. And the same suggestions are always offered as possible solutions none of which in my case have helped. I would like to add an additional detail to the conversation that I haven?t seen anyone else mention.

When I turn on my computer and open Windows Live Mail, I immediately get the error code mentioned above and no e-mails will download into my Inbox. I have to go to Yahoo Mail online in order to read them. However, if I let my laptop go to sleep then revive it (but without typing in my Windows password) my e-mails will ultimately download into WLM. Does this information add anything to the mystery of this annoying error code? In other words, re-booting the computer doesn?t help but if I let my computer fall into sleep mode then revive it by pressing just the start button, the e-mails tend to then download about 10-45 seconds later. Minutes later, after that one successful download of e-mails I will get the error code again and no additional e-mails will come in unless I repeat my little trick and even that doesn't always work either. This is a terrible work-around and I?m hoping to find a better solution.

Hello. I'm having an issue with Windows Live Messenger.
I'm on a new PC, literally delivered today with Windows vista. I go about the normal thing to do when one gets a new computer, install the programs that were on the old one. WLM was working fine when I initially installed it but after a reboot it wouldn't connect regardless of what I did. The reboot also took a large amount of time, showing just the colour of my desktop (no icons or the wallpaper or even the task bar ) for a good 3 minutes. I've restarted twice since then.

When I try to connect I get the following issue:
