    I really have no idea but if you search here for that error you'll find quite a few other threads on it.

    There is no need to uninstall them first. This error (99% of the time) is not due to those being corrupted, but one never having been installed. Since you don't know which one is missing, install them all and the problem goes away. That is the theory behind this fix.

    Actually, I had all of them installed except 2010. I downloaded and installed it, but it didn't work. I even tried both only removing windows live messenger, and removing windows live essentials twice. The second time, I had re-installed 2008 before re-installing WLM. However, it still didn't work.

    In fact, I had ran the scan now thing at one point, and it didn't work either. I even used some sort of program for cleaning up windows more than Microsoft"s program.

    Another time, I even tried uninstalling messenger, and re-installing a previous version. But with that, it opened the program but would not login.

    Now I am not sure what to do, as I have went through many suggested solutions and still have not seen an actual solution. It seems like this first occurred after a windows update, and secondly after a program installation. This never happened with previous versions. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

    Hi Plantine,

    It would be best to start your own thread That way the help you receive is specific to you. Someone will tend to your problem once you've done that.

    I did this to resolve it:
    Click Start Menu.
    Click on Control Panel.
    Under "Programs" click on "Uninstall a program".
    Find Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable and uninstall it (as well as every other visual C++)
    Uninstall Windows Live (How to Manually Uninstall Windows Live Messenger Windows Live Messenger - Manually Uninstall - Windows 7 Forums)
    Download the Visual C++ 2008 redistributable and the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Service Pack. (and any other visual c++ that you may need to replace)
    Reinstall Windows Live Messenger
    Install it.
    Reinstall Microsoft Visual Basic C++ Redistributable 2008 and 2008 (SP1) and other ones. For me, I deleted all of them, 2005-2010, but only re-installed 2005 and 2008. I didn't not originally have 2010, and I think that the programs did not have dependencies on 2010. For this thing, I also had checked the log that it mentions.

    Following this, I believe that it worked. However, I had noticed on one site a recommendation to upgrade Messenger Plus which was still installed, but no longer compatible with Windows Live Messenger. I upgraded that too, but I am not sure that it is really very useful.. So, if you have that program, but think that it may not be useful anymore, try also uninstalling that.
