Ive just installed windows 7 on my pc and I wanted to know where to paste my old yahoo messenger conversations... I installed yahoo but I think its another version of it and I just cant find the Profile...

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete message history archive on your computer. You can copy it to the same location on another computer if you want to view it there. We've included instructions for Windows XP and Windows Vista users.
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows XP:
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (64-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\
Warning: Copying your Profiles folder to another computer overwrites any existing message history archive on that computer and it is replaced by yours. That overwritten message history archive will be permanently eliminated by this process. (Workaround: Backup that message archive first to a storage medium such as a CD ROM.)

When i installed yahoo messenger it did not open the window so i un-installed it and later installed it again but has encountered the same problem. The window is not opening.

Try rebooting your computer then do not open any programs except going to and downloading new installer and save it to your desktop. Now double click it and run the installer.

If the above does not work or if you are using Windows Vista try using this link for the full installer (does not rely on yahoo servers). These full installers come directly from a yahoo server and by pass the web installer that most use. If on Windows Vista right click the full installer and choose install as administrator. You might have to temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

Which Version of vista & yahoo messenger you are using...?

Yahoo! has released some previewst.gif of its newly rebuilt Messenger application for Windows Vista. Yahoo! built this version of Messenger from the ground up, and uses pretty much all of features you are used to, but with a few little tricks. Features in the new Vista version include instant messages, voice, and video. Contacts from your Live Messenger can be added to Yahoo!, and you can see and interact with them as expected. Conversations can be organized with tabs through dragging and dropping. Of course there will be some added eye and ear candy with additional emoticons, sounds and interface customization. Yahoo! has a video preview of the Messenger application running in Vista, which you can check out heret.gif. Pretty cool! Yahoo has been really going all out lately trying to steal back some market share, and I'm sure they will steal some with this rebuild. Good job Yahoo!

ITS NOT DOWNLODABLE From the Yahoo Site it will provide u a web installer for online installation.....
You can download it from link provided above & choose from the two version 9 Beta Or Vista Special Edi. ( But Remember Vista Spl Edi. Does'nt have Conference feature..

Hope This Helped you..
