    Issues with Windows Vista RTM & Live Messenger

    Hi Everyone,
    I assume everyone else is having similar issues, but I cannot sign in to
    Messenger on Vista RTM 32 Bit.
    I have tried the following

    - Live Messenger 8
    - Live Messenger 8.1
    - MSN Messenger 7.5
    - Miranda 0.51

    Nothing will connect properly for me.
    I have tested with a Server 2003 system on my Network and that works fine...

    Just want to ensure this is not an isolated issue.

    Unable to duplicate on a 32 bit system running a clean install of Vista RTM.
    Suggest you might check your firewall settings - and also make sure if you
    installed an AV program, that you selected a Custom install so that you are
    not running 2 or more firewalls. Trend's AV installs its own firewall as an
    example.

    Messenger 8.0 (build 0812) runs fine in Vista and can make VOIP calls and
    use the Logitech webcam.

    I've got the exact same problem.
    A clean install here too. Check AV (using AVG), removed and checked again,
    same issue.
    Any ideas what might be causing this?

    OK, it's sorted here. I've found that vista is using UPnP differently which
    interfere with the messenger ports.
    Once I've updated my router's firmware it's working fine. I'm using a
    netgear DG834G.

    Re: Issues with Windows Vista RTM & Live Messenger

    I've just completed a Fresh Install again with RTM (Direct from Microsoft)
    and the issue is still present.
    Exceptional Bizarre....

    With the version Vista says to download (Download Live Messenger Link) the
    Program just hangs.
    When I load Version 8.1, it comes up with a 8000***306 Error or something
    similar...

    No Idea whats going on...

    Re: Issues with Windows Vista RTM & Live Messenger

    Resolved my Issues:

    I managed to isolate my issues to my Sonicwall TZ170 Hardware Firewall.
    Once I replaced this with a Basic Linksys WRT54G everything started working
    pleasantly.....
