RE: Stupid WLM Installer
I tried to find one for my gf because it always got stuck. Couldn't find one so she ended up just getting 9.0... (Her laptop died though so shes back to 8.5 with me :P)

RE: Stupid WLM Installer
There is a way though.... You wont get the "exe" (there is no "exe" anymore*), but you can get the "msi"...

It involves checking the debug/install log of the Windows Live Installer, checking some stuff in it to get the correct name and searching the temporary downloaded msi install packages.

It's a lot work though (and I can't remember the location of the log anymore**).

I also whished there was a clean easy way without actually installing everything. Though cba to write something which does it automatically or detect automatically the msi downloaded.... Maybe someone else will? :p



* UPDATE: come to think of it, there must still be an exe around somewhere. I have the official en-us setup exe here (incl. icon, setup dialog, VeriSigned and all) but dunno anymore from where or how I got it....

UPDATE: wow, apparently I have all the MSI packages of 8.5.1302.1018 from all available languages. Dunno how I got them, but they are located in C:\Documents and Settings\<mywinaccount>\My Documents\Windows Live Messenger\ as a bootstrap stub package (=installer without the dialogs, containing the MSI as a resource).... So if you need a specific language, ask....


** EDIT: see my next post in this thread

---------------

PS: here the Dutch version of 8.5.1302.1018 (msi package): http://www.mediafire.com/?1xg1tjztjkx

lol. Cookie just has everything!
bigb88's link worked fine, thanks:-D im sure someone else will find other languages useful.
There should be an option to use the .exe or straight forward .msi instead off a load off faffing about with something trying to get you to download more rubbish!

Thanks!

RE: WLSuite Soon to be released, any other testers annoyed? < I refer to MenthiX's this reply when I need msi files. That is very useful. And Windows Live Installer stores the msi files here:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Application Data\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources

That location can be different for other people (and probably depending on installer version or whatever also).

eg:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources\*.MSI
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WindowsLiveInstaller\Product\*.MSI or *.TMP (renamed *.MSI files)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources\*.MSI
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WindowsLiveInstaller\Product\*.MSI or *.TMP (renamed *.MSI files)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WindowsLiveInstaller\Temp\*.DLT (renamed *.MSI files)
