Mux it, I get a firewall error on window xp 64 bit

WLM on my other computer (right next to this one) works, and they are both
connected to the same router. What is the problem and solution?

we were unable to sign you into WLM......

Error Code 80048820
extended error code: 80048412

The only firewall is windows firewall and this installation is brand new,
the only thing on it: firefox, sp2 xp64, video and audio drivers, and LAN

Thanks for that Jonathon. Personally I'm tired of being put into these
unforgivable situations: A mandatory update when the installer claims it's
not compatible with the OS and 8.1 is no longer accepted.

I never saw why the upgrades had to be mandatory anyway, especially not when
I've seen so many complaints about the interface change.

I still cannot get it to run: After running the msi file you offered I
STILL get the complaint that a new version is required, but messenger states
it is running V2008 build 8.5.1288.826. I am running Xp64 with all the
updates for that of course.

I was able to get it working using the links from the page Jonathan posted
below.

One solution is to use Yahoo messenger - it will let you connect to MSN
messenger accounts. Since Microsoft doesn't want us to use MSN messenger,
I'm happy to oblige them and use someone else's product. Besides, I don't
really like the Vista/Win7/Office7 interface styles anyhow - I prefer my
menus across the top of the app like they have been for the past 20 years or
so. Change for the sake of change is not always a good thing, and Yahoo
hasn't *yet* gone down the newMicrosoft UI path.

Trillian (trillian.cc) is another option. It lets you connect to all kinds
of accounts, including msn, yahoo, myspace, twitter, etc. and you can login
with multiple accounts. In the past they had some rather serious stability
problems. I'm using the new version now in the hopes that they fixed some of
the old bugs.

I used to use Web Messenger - unfortunately, they discontinued it, and the
web based live messenger they replaced it with is horrid. I loved
WebMessenger, I used it all the time at work, I wish it was still available.

Jonathan,

First, thank you for taking the time to provide messenger help to those of
us running XP x64.

I followed your directions at the above blog, for installing the latest
messenger (Version 2009 Build 14.0.8089.726), and it seemed to work well for
the most part, however I immediately began experiencing frequent problems
with my computer entering / leaving standby mode after completing this
installation. Nothing else has been changed / installed on the computer in
the recent past, so I believe I am safe in assuming the problem is related to
this WLM install. Have you heard of others having a similar problem, and
would you be able to offer any help in debugging the issue? I do have an
error code signature, if it is of any help.

Thank you.

this new problem.

Have you heard of any other users having a similar problem? Are you able to

Cannot tolerate the constant hang-ups getting into and out of standby mode
any longer. I must uninstall this. Jonathan, do you have any uninstall
procedure for this hack of an install?

Thank you,

Greetings,

Uninstall for each component of the Live suite (including Messenger) is listed here:
http://messengergeek.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E3785B1281BBDA1!3332.entry

Alternatively you can just save the existing MSI files somewhere like the Desktop,
right-click on them and choose Uninstall there.

Did anyone ever note that Windows Live Essentials, which includes
Messenger, is not supported on XP x64?

Windows Live Essentials require the following:

* Operating system: Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (32-bit edition
only), Windows Vista (32-bit or 64-bit editions), Windows 7 (32-bit or
64-bit editions), or Windows Server 2008.

I think it states XP 32-bit only. There's a high probability this may
account for the unusual on XP x64 (64-bit)!

Hi,

It's more than noted, it won't even let you install unless you do it manually.
