Uninstall previous YM than when you install again change the name of the destination directory ( ex: C:Program FilesYahoo2 ) ...it works for me.
First reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable from here:

Sounds like you may have tried to download without clearing out your browser or failed to check the Messenger file was empty before uploading your new messenger.
When downloading/uploading close all other programs.
I suggest you download and run ccleaner first before you proceed further. Run it through a couple of times - include "registry" from the left hand toolbar. Do not be alarmed at the amount of files you have to delete, especially if you do not clear it on a regular basis.
Use this path to uninstall and remove the old messenger software.
> Start > computer > local disc (C) > program files > yahoo > messenger > UNWISE.
UNWISE is the command that starts uninstall. Make sure the file is clean before downloading - I run messenger 9 with no problems although I read here its "full of bugs" but that's because its not been installed cleanly. Yahoo tell us its the best one to operate behind a firewall.
Check in the Messenger file after uninstalling to make sure no fragments of software remain that will create conflicts with the new software.
Delete shortcut on desktop
Download new freeware browser - mozilla firefox
Restart computer
Download the version of messenger you want using firefox

I'm having the same problem, not quite sure whether it is happending due to upgrade to IE 8 or Windows Installer 4.5 installation. Cleanup and re-install of Yahoo Messenger 10 won't help. The YahooMessenger.exe fails to initialize right during the installation process.

Application error occuring to install or remove yahoo massenger?


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.
