Try right clicking the installation executable and choose Run As Administrator. By default, even an administrator account in Vista doesn't run with administrator privledges unless you elevate the action using user account controls.

    Try downloading the program from here:

    Save the file to the desktop, then right click, RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (IF using WIndows Vista), if not using Vista just run the file.

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:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/index.cfm?action=showthread&threadid=346865&forumid=1
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):

if there is then take it out once done restart pc then download windows live messenger again

Hi i just got a acer desktop with window vista . i am trying to use msn im messeraen but it want let me send


First, try restarting the computer, if this does not fix the problem then you can try re-installing messenger.

Go to control panel, under programs, click uninstall a program. Then find Windows Live messenger in the list(it may take a while to load). Click messenger, then click uninstall. You will need to go through the installer following the instructions.

Then you can download Windows Live Messenger again from the microsoft website. Click here for a link. You can download and install the program by following the on screen instructions. Make sure you read through and choose the right settings.

Then when you run messenger this should fix the problem. If it does not or you need more help, then let me know and i will do my best.

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
