Manual Windows Live messenger installation

Q: Manual Windows Live messenger installation

Hello,

I would like to install Windows Live on Vista Business, Service Pack 1, and have obtained the only installer I could find from the official site. However, it installs to c: by default, and I see no options to change this setting. Since I use c: only for system files, I'd like to know if it's possible to manually install the program to another drive.

Preferred Solution: Manual Windows Live messenger installation

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.)

Downloaded Messenger 2011 onto my new computer recently; however, when I went to open it, it couldn't find the files it needed. Went searching for the program everywhere, nowhere to be found, not even on the Programs List. So, I decided, best thing to do would be to re-download it, but when the new installer opened, it said that the program was already installed, despite its apparent absence from the computer.
There is a similar problem with Adobe Flash - tried to re-download it, but it continues to believe it's on my system. Hopefully I explained the problem well :/

Any and all help appreciated.

Hello

Sorry this might be a dumb question, but will my computer be ok if I opened live messenger and sent a few messges while windows update was being installed on full load on my HDD? I'm kinda worried it would cause some bugs or errors since there was lag when I was typing, opening windows etc wtih live messenger.

A:Using live messenger during windows update installation

Just personal opinion, and others may disagree. I prefer to let Windows Update and other "critical" operations like system images, creation of restore points, etc not have anything else going on in the background. Whenever system files are being accessed, read, or written to, I'd rather have all of my computer's resources concentrating on just that one task. But that's just me.

Hi,
For some reasons, i could not install Windows live messengers 9.0. It says:

You might have some left over installation file information in your registry. Try running the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and remove any old instances of Messenger and Visual Studios you find in the output list. Download the cleanup file and save. Then run as Administrator.

I have had Windows Live Messenger installed for a long time and I used to use it a lot, but not so much recently. Tonight I opened it up to try to contact someone and it opened fine, but the window included a message telling me that there was a newer version available and asked if I wanted to get the newer version. I clicked "yes" and an installation process began. I had a choice of things to install, but the only item I selected was Windows Live messenger. The process seemed to take longer than what I would have expected, but I patiently waited until it reached 100% installed. Unfortunately a message appeared telling me that it could not install Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Toolbar (which I had not asked for) and the installation was aborted. It gave an error number 0x80004004 for the Windows Live Messenger and for the Windows Live Toolbar it said it was unable to uninstall an older version of Windows Live Toolbar.

So I figured I would just keep using the version that I had, only that version no longer works. When I click on the icon for Windows Live Messenger I get a message saying that it cannot locate Windows Live Messeger.lnk.

So I went to "Add/Remove Programs" and tried to remove Windows Live Toolbar, but there I got a message saying that it could not find WLToolbar.msi. I then did a "Search" of my hard drive and the search results came up with nothing.

So then I went to www.microsoft.com, searched for Windows Live Messenger, ... Read more

A:Solved: Windows Live Messenger Installation Problem

I found an answer on another forum. I went to microsoft.com and downloaded a program named msicuu2.exe. When you install and run it, it displays a list of programs that have been successfully or unsuccessfully installed by a microsoft install program. You can then select one/all of those programs to remove. Although (at least in my case), it didn't really remove the software, it removed whatever it was that was keeping me from being able to install Windows Live Messenger. Everything is working fine now!

Please could anyone give me some technical advice or opinion.

USB mouse, Modem to a BT Broadband line, the new webcam.

I installled a new "Creative Webcam Live" unit yesterday for her birthday. She uses MSN messenger on the internet using the broadband line and the webcam is intended to provide streamed live video images when chatting to her friends.

The installation did have problems and claimed some files could not be located but I search the c drive for the files required, found them all in c:\windows\system and navigated the installation wizard to them when asked using "browse" and the installation seemed to run to successful completion.

The application software provided titled "Webcam Manage Center" seems to run okay, starts the webcam and we can see high quality real time streamed images in the video window on the screen. So all seems well.

However, when she starts up the internet connection and signs into MSN Messenger with the live video option enabled, the session starts okay with good streamed video working too but quickly (after around 30 secs) the video streaming freezes and the image remains static and does not reset itself. MSN messenger continues without problem and she can type/chat to her friends with the video image ther... Read more

This is a slightly annoying problem. I've disabled Windows Live Messenger from starting up, both through Messenger's options and through MSCONFIG. The program doesn't start when Windows starts. But when I log on to Windows Live Mail through a web browser, Messenger starts up on it's own. I cannot figure out a way to disable this. I've looked through Live Mail options and can't find anything to denote starting up the program. I only use my Live Mail account for junk mail, but need to check it occasionally and would prefer it if Messenger didn't start up on it's own.

I find the assocation of windows live mail and messenger very annoying. In WL Mail, I use both my hotmail and gmail accounts. I prefer to save my passwords so I don't have to enter them every time I open my mail. However, if I get WL Mail to rememberr my passwords, my hotmail account automatically pops up first when I want to sign into WL Messenger, even though I never use hotmail in messenger (just the gmail sign-in). So now, I always have to change the sign-in information on messenger because somehow it prefers my hotmail account.
Simply clickinig 'forget me' in WL Messenger is not the solution since this also makes WL Mail forget my hotmail password, so I have to enter this one very time I open my mail.

So somehow I would like to dissociate the two, to have WL Mail to remember my passwords, but WL Messenger to forget the hotmail account. Does anyone know if there's any way to do so? I hate these automatic associations that you don't have any control over!

Hello,

I have been attempting to link all of my emails on windows live mail lately and it looked easy for a while. It was until I had to add my Cogeco account to it. The system keeps telling me, when I attempt to run a test message, that it can't locate the incoming and outgoing mail servers. I have even taken the servers declared on their personal website and they do not work.. Here are my current server settings:

incoming mail (POP3): pop.cgocable.ca (initially it was "pop.cogeco.ca")
outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp.cgocable.ca (initially it was "smtp.cogeco.ca")
E-mail username: **********

I have heard of some people checking the box where it says, "my server requires authentication" and they have had some success. I have tried this as well but they require me to re-enter the password and it will not even accept it! I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

First off, wasn't sure which sub-topic to post this under so apologies in advance if I picked the wrong one.

Now the problem: After re-formatting my PC, I re-downloaded the version of MSN Messenger (or Windows Live Messenger) that I was previously using for a long time, and am wanting to continue using - Although this time, for some reason, it's not allowing me to sign into it without updating the software, which I really want to avoid since the new ones are plain ugly. I can sign in by setting the MSN 8.5 compatability mode to Windows 2000, but a few seconds after logging in it instantly closes without any kind of error message.

Must be a way to fix this since I managed to use this version for so long before, any help finding out how would be great :)

I installed the latest Live Messenger. Since then, every time I add a contact it is blocked. Ok it is easy to unblock but a PITA. Also when someone I'm chatting to puts an Emoticon on the page, if I try to save it, it tells me the name I have used for it is already being used. I have tried putting in other words with the same result.
I reinstalled Messenger 9 and now am having the same problem with that as well although it was fine before I uninstalled it.
Your comments and suggestions appreciated as usual.
George.

Sounds to me like you have a corrupted installation. Where did you get the newest version of Windows Live?

windows live messenger just keeps exiting once its been signed in by a user? any idea why ?

A:windows live messenger

That happened to me before i downloaded the updated version of live messenger. Make sure you have the latest as it you don't, live messnger will prompt you that you will need to install the latest one before you can sign in

Hi, My friend has a pc with Vista home premium. I tried to download Windows live messenger onto it and it won't complete the install. The sign up assistant installed with no problem but Hotmail got to 99% and wouldn't complete. Since she only has a dial up connection I waited for a good amount of time but it just refused to complete. First I created a Windows live ID for her and then proceeded to install Hotmail and then Messenger but as I said the only thing that installed was Sign In assistant. Can someone please guide me on what I should do. Is there another site that can download this easier as Microsoft is definitely not doing it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Good Morning,, I sure hope that you can help me with this,, I have used Windows Live Messenger for about 2 years now. It helps me stay in touch with friends that are in other cities. Two weeks ago, I started receiving notifications that a friend was online, then the conversation box came on with a web site, and also started that my friend was off line.. the post was that she had posted pictures for me to see. I tried it,, no pictures, just a quiz that required my cell #.. while beening one of the few who does not own a cell phone .. that was it for me.. so never did get to the site, thank goodness. She never sent it to me anyway.. Then my other friends started receiving the same thing from me. I never sent it to them.. Now, they keep popping up all the time.. as I have sat here, typing, I have received three more,, and they are getting very insistent and more porn related. As I am certainly not interested in any of that, I have been just deleting them.. How did they start and How can I please get rid of them. Thank you for your help..Sherry Lynn(Moderator edit: moved post to more appropriate forum. jgw)
