No sounds on MSN Messenger and Live Messenger after upgrade
Posted by admin on Sunday, August 20, 2006 (21:39:08) (18862 reads)
We've recently received many complaints from users about not being able to activate sound in MSN Messenger or Windows Live Messenger after performing an upgrade or downgrade.
This problem usually seems to occur when MSN 7.5 is upgraded to Windows Live Messenger, and possibly when Live Messenger 8.0 is downgraded back to Messenger 7.5. In any case, this problem can be solved by uninstalling whatever version of Messenger is currently installed and then performing a fresh installation.
Windows Live Messenger may ship with upcoming Windows Vista
Posted by admin on Thursday, August 17, 2006 (00:19:28) (6831 reads)
According to Microsoft Watch, Microsoft's next generation Operating System, Windows Vista may ship with Windows Live Messenger!
It is not yet clear to what extent Live Messenger will be integrated into Vista: Messenger could be pre-installed in Vista as a replacement for the aging Windows Messenger or Vista could simply contain a link to the Live Messenger website.
Although most Live Messenger users would welcome this, owners of other competing Instant Messaging services (e.g. AIM, Yahoo, Google Talk, etc) will probably not be so pleased.

MSN Messenger 7.5 and Windows Live Messenger (WLM) are both great offerings from Microsoft, each with their respective pros and cons.

You can finally download the final version of Windows Live Messenger! The build number of this final release is 8.0.0787 (or Messenger 8.0.0787.00 to be exact).
Not many big changes in this version: it's no longer a BETA version (which means a lot of bug fixes) and several interface and graphical changes have been applied.
Unfortunately it also looks like we'll have to do some more waiting before we can chat with people on Yahoo Messenger, but the wait is certainly going to be worth it! Go ahead and download it below.
Windows Live Messenger Final: coming today!
Posted by admin on Monday, June 19, 2006 (05:38:27) (3348 reads)
The big day is finally here, the final version of Windows Live Messenger is set to roll out sometime today (within the next 10 or so hours)!
Strangely enough there is still no mention of the Yahoo Messenger interoperability (which has yet to be BETA tested). One possibility is that it will be released at a later stage along with a version of Yahoo Messenger which is compatible with Windows Live and MSN Messenger.
Final release date for Windows Live Messenger 8.0?
Posted by admin on Tuesday, June 13, 2006 (03:00:35) (2945 reads)
Although the Windows Live Messenger 8.0 BETA is set to end shortly, no clear date for a final release of Messenger 8.0 has been set.
Some speculations of a June 16 release have been made, but there is no concrete evidence to back this up. The last official word confirms that a Yahoo enabled version of Messenger is being tested, but no word on the release date. Naturally, a lot of users are very excited to be finally able to IM across the MSN and Yahoo worlds!
Yahoo Messenger integration with Windows Live Messenger coming very shortly!
Posted by admin on Sunday, June 11, 2006 (16:47:09) (3277 reads)
It's been quite a while since we last heard anything about the upcoming Yahoo Messenger interoperability with our beloved Windows Live Messenger since the Initial announcement over 6 months ago.
Naturally, we can't expect full compatibility between the two IM clients at this early stage, but you can probably expect more in the next version of Yahoo Messenger. We can most likely expect the next version of Live Messenger to contain some interoperability with Yahoo Messenger.
MSN Messenger is already the world's most popular Instant Messaging client, and the ability to communicate with Yahoo contacts will certainly provide a huge boost to it's popularity. Stay tuned.
FAQ: Will I lose my Emoticons & Display Pictures by upgrading to MSN Messenger 8
Posted by admin on Friday, May 26, 2006 (19:15:02) (3352 reads)
A common question about installing the new MSN Messenger 8.0: Will I lose all the emoticons and display pics that I added to MSN Messenger 7.5?
The upgrade process from MSN Messenger 7.5 should be smooth and all your Emoticons and MSN Display Pictures should load up straight away in Windows Live Messenger when you install it. They will also remain there if you decide to uninstall version 8.0 and go back to using Messenger 7.5.
If you are really concerned about losing your emoticons and display pics, you should always create a backup using a tool such as the CE/DP Backup Wizard.
