Did you uninstall the previous ym first before installing beta 9 of ym?
uninstall the old ym first then.

before starting to install, try to disable momentarily your firewall.

Messanger application wont open, tried to re-install with same result

Hello edfinfo, I'd be happy to help! I myself have had many other applications do this same thing to me. To hopefully resolve this issue, I would advise you to start completely fresh by un-installing and then installing your application again. First, you should un-install your application. After you're finished doing that, then you should use the file searcher (this is accessible [on windows] by selecting the start bar, then in the list that pops up, you would select "search") to search for the ghost files of your application (Ghost files are the leftover files stored on your computer after an un-install of an application. Ghost files are usually the cause of a reinstalled application's freezes, crashes or more). Now a window should appear should appear asking you the enter the name or keyword of a file. You should then type in that searcher the name of you messenger (yahoo messenger). When the search is finished there should be a few files, that read yahoo messenger, or something very similar/associated to the program name (yahoo messenger). If there are any files (if there aren't any files you should just resort to re-installing your application), you should select them and then completely delete them. Once your are finished with that, you can then re-install the application and you application should then run properly from there. I really hope this helps!!

I have been unsuccessful in installing messenger. I get a message saying that "application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect" I am running vista

The problem is with the Yahoo uninstall software which fails to clear the old Messenger folder out and creates conflicts with the incoming new software - If you had not started to uninstall I would have recommend you download revo and uninstall with that.
Keep this in mind if you manage to install messenger but still have problems
You will have to go into your C drive and delete the left behind software
Click ( > ) Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >>Yahoo >> Messenger - if you have Vista the folder should be empty - if you have pre- Vista the only sub-folder remaining should be 'Profile' ( The message Archive file) manually delete everything except 'Profile' by right clicking and deleting. When finished restart your computer and finish the install - download the new Messenger from filehippo.
