Moved to a new computer, WLM is a mess. by Yuyuko on 06-15-2013 at 08:33 PM
EDIT: I managed to get a working link now and managed to run Plus! with Messenger Reviver. Everything is fine!
Hello, I have a potentially tricky problem on my hands.
You see, today I transferred all my data from a failing computer to this new one and started reinstalling everything, but obviously, Windows Live Messenger was going to give me trouble.
What happens is that I downloaded WLM (2009 version, same one I had in my old computer since I used the compatibility trick to avoid the forced update) and it runs fine as long as I do set the compatibility to Windows XP or earlier, but when I downloaded Plus!, it reverts to trying to force me to update, even if I try to do that trick again.
So basically I can't use Plus! Without WLM wanting to update, possibly even moving me to Skype against my will. I don't know why this happens since I could use Plus! with that version of WLM just fine in my older computer.
I still have that computer and everything in the HD is there, in case anything can be moved over to solve this. I don't know.

Try Messenger Reviver.

None of the Reviver download links there are working for me. I tried the zipped version too.
