I can't install windows live messenger, it encounter a network error while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\Messenger.msi


I found the site below and thought of your situation. Here is the message I received:
-------
"Network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:
C:\\WINDOWS/Installer/Messenger.msi
Please close all other open programs, and then try again. It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working. hr.0x80070643"
-------
If it's the same message, and you haven't found a solution yet, then this will do the trick. Although it's an older post, it works just fine for the current 14.0.8117.416 Messenger update issue:

Scroll about halfway down the page. Look for Microsoft Customer Support (Joan, Technical Support, Live Essentials):
Note: For the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, I downloaded from this link (you'll want the latest version wherever you get it - 2.5.0.1):

Cannot install upgrade to messenger so I can use my webcam


First uninstall the one you have
then do a windows update on your pc
you should be able to download an update for messenger after that.
If you still can't then open add and remove programs
then windows programs scroll down and make sure there is no check mark in windows messenger
if there is then take it out once done restart pc then download windows live messenger again

Windows live messenger sign in error code 81000306


That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!

My windows live messenger account will not sign in even though my passord and username are correct. the error code given is 80072745


This is generally a firewall problem. Try reseting your router first. If that doesn't work, make sure your software firewall applications are allowing msn traffic on port 1863.

Cant log in windows live messenger - they says Error code 81000395


as refer to MSN error code,
You may not be able to sign in because you entered the wrong e-mail address. Re-enter your credentials and try to sign in to Messenger again.

If you sure you are enter correct username & password, second thing to check is your connectivity. In Windows Live Messenger,
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. In the left pane, click Connection.
  3. Click Refresh to freshen your display and view current information, such as signal strength, account name, and connection type. — or —
  4. To run the Connection Troubleshooter, click Start and the troubleshooter will run an analysis of your system and connection settings (Settings associated with your Internet connection.) . If you're using an 802.11b wireless card, the Connection Troubleshooter may indicate that you have a wired connection.
  5. Click Finish.
To test your connection settings:
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. Under Connection, click Advanced Settings.
  3. Click Test to run several tests on your connections.
  4. If you'd like to save a log of your server connections, select the Save a log of my server connections to help troubleshoot connection problems check box.

Error code 80072efd


1. get ALL Microsoft updates, not just express
2. update messenger
3. uninstall and reinstall live messenger ONLY after you have backed up your contacts and other stuff. This is a last resort though.
