Any other suggestions?
I don't know what to add; I reported a similar issue here
and they asked for more information.
btw, I tried the following and it usually worked.
1) both of you delete each other from your live profiles; if the contact is still on the WLM contact list, delete it from there, too.
2) go to http://profile.live.com/connect/
and add your friend from there; log out/in; it should be added to your contact list as well; if it's not, add it on WLM too
3) wait for your friend to accept your invite on http://profile.live.com/invites
; if the invite is not there, send him a link to your
live profile, he should see a "wants to be friend" link under your name: by clicking it you should finally be connected
4) both of you log out and back in
if you already added your friends and added them on your live profile already, you should just ask your friends to accept the invitation on their profile. Once you log out/in you should see each other again.
this is what mostly worked for me
; I say mostly, because, while in some cases it reliably worked, a friend of mine didn't ever receive the invitation on his live profile...
