RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
I just thought I should let everyone who's using the revive patch know that it's only a band-aid solution, as Microsoft is still terminating the MSNP next year. All the patch does is provide the same result as running Messenger in compatibility mod...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Anyone else receiving this sign in problem, simply just run Messenger in compatibility mode for Windows Server 2003, no patch necessary. Works with at least WLM 14 and lower.

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
If, when Messenger shuts down, there's absolutely no possible way of circumventing the block, Trillian will become my new IM service of choice. I'll use it for the sole purpose of linking it to my Skype account so that I can retain somewhat of a si...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
I don't recall ever hearing that the first deadline would extend past March 15 to April 8. After they pushed it back from March 15, it was my sole understanding that the transition would happen over a course of time between April 8 and 30, not just ...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
My thoughts exactly. And I thought the petition was bad.

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
The transition of phasing users from Messenger to Skype isn't something that could happen in just one day. It's a huge migration process, which is why it's supposed to take between April 8 and 30.

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
And so the lurkers come out of the woodwork. If I recall correctly, the full transition from Messenger to Skype is scheduled to take between April 8 and April 30, so I'm not surprised that Messenger still works. America and other English clients are...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Do let us know what your showings find on the current Chinese clients, if you ever get to checking them. Not to mention, though, if Microsoft [i]did[/i] release a China-only client, somebody leaking it to the rest of the world would be inevitable. Ei...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
(Thank you for contributing to this thread.) I described unresolved issues with forcing Messenger to use foreign SOCKS proxies on the first page. There's a blog post that explains you need to edit your hosts file and redirect all the network ports/U...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
I just made a discovery, and it may not even be worth mentioning, but it's interesting regardless. Apparently, even after April 8, users will still be able to connect to and use the web Messenger in the Hotmail/Outlook interface. At this point, I'm...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Did your friend merge his Messenger account with Skype? Anyone can run Messenger and Skype alongside each other if the accounts aren't linked, so I don't really know what, exactly, he thinks is going to "trick" Microsoft. Moreover, the fact that ...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
I agree with you entirely. It's unfortunate, though, that Microsoft probably won't listen to consumers about this. They bought the rights to Skype some time ago, and are now likely to shift forth all of their effort into it. From a business perspec...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
To get to the Connections tab, you have to go into Messenger's options. On the left column, there should be a tab labeled "Connections." That's how it works in Messenger 2009, at least. Don't know about the 2011 or 2012 versions. Anyway, yeah, I...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Getting back on topic, does anybody think that the Chinese client is going to work past April 8? Maybe someone with a better technical understanding can open up the program and see if it's at all different from the English/standard version. I'm hon...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
No-one else has posted in this thread yet, so I may as well share a discovery I made the other day. After substantial amounts of trawling, I found what appears to be the official (?) Chinese Messenger client. Here's the website: http://www.windowsli...

RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Then could you manually input a Chinese proxy in the Advanced Settings of the Connections tab in Messenger's options? I just can't help but think that it's entirely possible to work around this global protocol shutdown by tapping into Chinese serv...

Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
So, I got wind of Microsoft merging Messenger accounts with Skype, and I'm sure one of the first questions that came into peoples' minds after knowing this were, "Will I (somehow) still be able to use Messenger after April 8?" I've done some loo...

WLM Automatically Adjusting Mic Volume
I realize I'm not the first to recognize this as an issue, but I've looked and looked for solutions online and haven't found one yet. The problem is that during a call, voice or video, Messenger (14.0.8117) automatically adjusts your microphone vo...

RE: Plus! 4.9
Yeah... I suppose it has been, even if the installer still [i]looks[/i] like it's version 5. I'm also now occasionally getting notifications to update Plus! even though I have the notifier turned off. I dunno.

Geez, no kidding. Why do software developers always do this?

Plus! 4.9
Hello. Why can't I download version 4.9 on the main downloads page anymore? The setup file still shows as "MsgPlusLive-490.exe", but it's actually version 5.

Weird "File Download" pop-up dialogue
Hello, second-time poster here. Wasn't sure where else to bring this to. Recently, every once in a while I'll get a window that pops up in Messenger asking me if I want to save a .swf file from the address "crtv.mate1.com" (one of WLM's advertis...

Small "bug" with Plus! 5 and Messenger 2009
Hi, I actually just registered so I could report a minor inconvenience I noticed recently since upgrading to Plus! 5. On Windows 7, I'm running the final build of Live Messenger 2009 (14.0.8117.416) in compatibility mode for Vista, Service Pack 2. W...
