Yahoo Messenger 9 Vista Installation Problems

I have Windows Vista Home Premium. I have tried several times, but I cannot get Messenger 9x to load properly. As soon as installation is complete, it says Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working. I have uninstalled it & re-downloaded program a couple of times, but to no avail. I still cannot get it to work. Is this a glitch in 9x and can it be fixed by trying 7x or 8x? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes 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,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Cannot install my yahoo messenger,it says application configuration is incorrect


Hai,
The formula for successful downloads and log ins is a squeaky clean browser
I downloaded a new browser ( firefox) to install messenger 9 and it works fine ( vista home premium and messenger 9 ) If you do not uninstall your old messenger you will have conflicts download ccleaner ( free software ) run the cleaner through a couple of times including the registry section from the left hand toolbar uninstall messenger, restart your pc, download firefox and install using firefox Get in the habit of cleaning your browser with ccleaner before shutting down for the night.
