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.)

It keeps saying that the application fails to initalize properly and yahoo messenger keeps not responding. I am running Windows Vista.

This kind of a problem can occur due to many problems. But more often than not, it's an installation error arising from Yahoo's end. Long story short, you should be able to run it properly if you reinstall Yahoo messenger from the scratch. First do a complete uninstall of Yahoo messenger. To do this, you'll need a third party software like Revo Uninstaller. If you're looking for a free alternative, try uninstalling with CCleaner.
After this, install a fresh copy of Yahoo messenger.

I downloaded yahoo messenger 11 beta but I'm not able to open my email computer is running window vista native 64 bit.

I would advice uninstalling 11 beta and just installing version 10:
It should work just fine on Vista 64-bit. (32-bit applications are reverse compatible.)
Good luck.
