RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
Well, it's official. Messenger has been eliminated. Today a little window popped up telling me I must install the new version of messenger. (it gave me a choice lol, but when I said no, the program asking me if I wanted to install the new version popped up again) Also if I said no and tried to log in to the old version of messenger it would just pop up the would you like to install the new version of messenger would pop up. (i hate being forcedF**ked)

O.P. 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.

Does this patch still allow full functionality for msn plus?

It is always possible that certain things wont function 100% anymore using the compatibility 'trick'.
(see older threads where setting the compatibility is used to circumvent update notices and where certain problems are reported)
PS: this isn't a patch though, it is a Windows setting.

As an alternative you can use TReKiE's "Messenger Reviver 2":

PS: this is a patch, 100% compatible with addons like Messenger Plus!.

wow! it's amazing how many responses the Messenger Reviver 2 site is getting. My email box has been filling up with answered responses by Jonathan ( the moderator) Boy, he must be tired answering all the comments.

Sad  RE: Continuing to use Messenger after April 8
My WLM was uninstalled without my consent but I found a way to revive it and continue using it. Just use the WLM reviver it works and you can continue using msnplus too! If they wanted us to transition to Skype happily they should of fixed the program and added the featured WLM had for free and not charge us! Absoulte shit! My long distant boyfriend and I have had so much trouble getting to simply talk and see each other not to mention family member issues.
Here is the link to WLM Reviver, HERE . I hope this helps anyone who has been fed up with Skype!
