Microsoft released build number 14.0.8117.0416 in April/May 2010.
That build number is definitely suitable for the Win XP operating
system. Other contributors to this newsgroup have reported that
14.0.8117.0416 will be the final version for Win XP machines.
However, I have no experience of Windows 7, so I don't know
whether it is also suitable for Win 7 Ultimate x64.
AFAIK, the new "wave" of Live products, which is still under
development, will not be compatible with Win XP.
Incidentally, I downloaded the full installer (not
wlsetup-web.exe) from http://download.live.com
on 13 May 2010.
The downloaded file was:
wlsetup-all.exe, version 4.0.8117.0416, digital signature 28
April 2010 22:15:25
From the Help pages of my laptop computer:
Windows Live Mail / Help /About Windows Live Mail = Version 2009
Windows Live Messenger / Help / About Messenger = Version 2009
wlmail.exe = version 4.0.8117.0416, digital signature 17 April
msmail.dll = version 4.0.8117.0416, digital signature 17 April
