an upgrade install huh?
betcha had flashplayer installed in xp huh?
and prolly java also.
For Vista-and more importantly for Undead Messenger(well-it ain't "LIVE")
you need to have the latest Adobe Flashplayer 9 installed.
If not, WLM will crash every time.
make sure you uninstall the current flashplayer before you go to install the
newest one from www.adobe.com
Also, on a side note, in Vista you need Java 6-not Java 5 update 11
like in XP
get it here, not the same page you are used to in XP- http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
and pick this one-
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java
it's about 1/2 way down the page.
