    An info from yahoo, it says that messenger 9 is for both XP and Vista. I do think so because it works well on Vista Home Premium but never in my Vista Ultimate though.

    :( even i m suffering from the same problem....

  • tewing2 Dec 08, 2008

    I've downloaded Messenger 9.0 and it will not allow me to log in. Keeps saying I need to change password. Password is valid. Changed proxy accordingly and nothing seems to work. This is frustrating because it will not allow download of older versions. I have Vista on my laptop and I don't know what to do at this point.

My yahoo messenger is locked 81003003


HI.......................

it has errors
Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/...
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play...

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect.

This will work with Vista too. use the link to download yahoo instant messenger version 9. You must first remove any previous installations using the Add/Remove Programs in Windows. then run this .exe file to start the install.

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html

Downloading YM 9.0 it goes to 100% and never prompts completion


Hey,



it might happen if you are trying to download yahoo messenger directly from yahoo.com.



You may use software sites to download yahoo messenger version 9 and more likely it would work n vista.


One of the link is :-
