O.P. Sounds, colors, commands not working? please read!
Hi,

many of you are currently reporting problems about sounds not working, commands not been recognised, quick texts failing, etc... most of these problems tend to be caused by Messenger patches that remove too many thigns from the Messenger interface (like Clean Messenger). If you're experiencing this kind of issue, please uninstall Windows Live Messenger, delete "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger" and reinstall it from Microsoft's web site.

[Edit by WDZ: Another possible solution posted by -!Felu!- here: http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?pid=678813]

I'm currently working on possible ways to make Messenger Plus! Live more "patch friendly" but in the meantime, remember to always ensure that you are using a clean Messenger before you report any problem.

Thank you,
Patchou

I guess people only should use patches to remove things which they really hate, like advertisements or pay services. It's stupid to remove a whole toolbar since Plus! perhabs uses it. ;)

It's not about removing toolbars; It doesn't matter what is being removed. The issue is that some patches remove things in the wrong way and cause trouble for other things. Even removing just the ads can cause this stuff (if not done properly).

Various people on the Dutch forum reported this problem too. I told them to uninstall wlm/mp!l and then do a freash install of both, but that doesn't seem to help for most. I think quite a lot of people have this problem right now.
Finish the problem

One other big reason found so far for all these problems: having an old (or recent) Smiley Central DLL if your Messenger directory. Uninstalling Messenger will not remove this file.

After uninstall Windows Live Messenger, make sure to delete "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger"before reinstalling, this has been proven to fix many problems from people emailing me.
