YahooMessenger.exe-Aplication Error The application failed to initialize properly [0xc0150002].Click on OK to terminate the application


Try to remove yahoo messenger and re-install it again.
If you can't uninstall it try this:
1) Log out of Yahoo Messenger and close yahoo messenger completely [ it should not be running under task manager as a process ]. 2) Open Start Menu >> Control Panel. 3) Double-click on Add or Remove Programs. 4) Locate Yahoo Messenger in Add or Remove Programs. 5) Click Change/Remove button. 6) Restart your computer, if it doesn't restart it automatically. 7) Open Yahoo folder in Program Files (C:\Program Files\Yahoo) and delete it. 8) Open registry through Start Menu >> Run and type regedit now navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ registry entry, delete Yahoo, and exit the Registry.
If the above method does not work for you, try the following methods to solve the problem.
1. Open Program Files >> Yahoo Messenger and find the file UNWISE.exe file. Double click this to run it. This will un install yahoo messenger.

I cannot get my YahooInstantMessenger to come up when I click my screen Icon. What can I do?


Right click on that icon, see whether the target contains
the right path to the yahooMessenger.exe program on the
pop out window.

The path should be something like:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe"

I have no icon to start up messenger


Assuming you are on a Windows PC. Consider performing the following steps:

1. Browse - My Computer --> C: --> Program Files --> Yahoo Messenger
2. Look for the yahoomessenger.exe in the folder (the usual Yahoo Messenger icon)
3. Right-click and select "Send to Desktop"
4. You should now be having the Yahoo Messenger shortcut on the desktop.

Hope this was helpful.

the error message is clear, for some reason your computer is set to block the Yahoo messenger link.
here is what you can do: (for windows XP)
1. open Control panel
2. click on Security Center
3. click on Widows Firewall
4. click on the Exception tab
5. check if you have Yahoo Messenger there:
a. if not: click on Add and paste the follow: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
b. if it's there- make sure it is the same as C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
if it is the same- click on Delete to remove it and try to install again.

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.

Cannot install yahoo messenger 9.0.0.2128


Vista is the key as its looking for the administrator to complete the installation
You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall 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.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
