    Installing Windows Live Messenger

    I'm tying to install WLM on a laptop using Vista Basic and the installation
    wont proceed. I searched the net for information, found something related to
    this, on having proper (admin) rights, but didn't help.

    Can someone suggest something here? Thanks.

    You don't say what is actually happenning when you try to install WLM. If the
    setup is simply not working properly it probably is due to administartive
    rights. Locate the setup.exe file for WLM, right click on it and, from the
    drop down menu, click on the 'run as administrator' option. WLM should then
    install. I've never had any problems installing WLM
