This is a ambiguous error with the new Y! Messenger 9.0 as stated by the messenger team here: http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/01/20/trouble-installing-yahoo-messenger-90/ . I would just go download 8.0/1 or even better go with open source and get Pidgin ( http://www.pidgin.im/ - great piece of software). The messenger blog says they need contributions into fixing the issue. Good luck.

Messanger application wont open, tried to re-install with same result


Hello edfinfo, I'd be happy to help! I myself have had many other applications do this same thing to me. To hopefully resolve this issue, I would advise you to start completely fresh by un-installing and then installing your application again. First, you should un-install your application. After you're finished doing that, then you should use the file searcher (this is accessible [on windows] by selecting the start bar, then in the list that pops up, you would select "search") to search for the ghost files of your application (Ghost files are the leftover files stored on your computer after an un-install of an application. Ghost files are usually the cause of a reinstalled application's freezes, crashes or more). Now a window should appear should appear asking you the enter the name or keyword of a file. You should then type in that searcher the name of you messenger (yahoo messenger). When the search is finished there should be a few files, that read yahoo messenger, or something very similar/associated to the program name (yahoo messenger). If there are any files (if there aren't any files you should just resort to re-installing your application), you should select them and then completely delete them. Once your are finished with that, you can then re-install the application and you application should then run properly from there. I really hope this helps!!

Hi i have a questions and i hope u can help me when i am installing yahoo messanger it dose not installs and its a box comes out and its says side-by-side configuration what dose that mean and i really...


You didn't write that which operating system you using....but this error comes maximum in vista...it is related with Windows Resource Protection (WRP)...which use to keep your system file protected and secure....may be any of the file in SxS folder is corrupted or incorrect version.... You can try running sfc.exe(system file checker tool) to fix this....If you using vista, run your pc as an administrator and run cmd as an administrator as well. Type sfc /scannow and type Enter....while it running don't do other work on pc....it may take some time...be patient .....this command will scan all the protected system files, find out the incorrect version or corrupted version and replace with correct/suitable version....once you finish restart your pc and try install Yahoo messenger.

If you are a XP user, run your pc in Safe mode.and put the same command in cmd...and after finishing install yahoo messenger...
I think this suggestion will help you to fix your issue...

Can you help me on a problem installing yahoo messenger


I'm assuming you're trying to install yahoo messanger.
here's something I suggest:
1. It looks like you have downloaded the installation file, so make sure you're installing ymessenger after the file has been downloaded instead of trying to install the file by running the installation as you download the file.
2. try to run the downloaded installation file in safe mode.
3. it does not look like a problem with the windows installer but you can try to update to the latest windows installer:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5A58B56F-60B6-4412-95B9-54D056D6F9F4&displaylang=en
4. do a clean install of the ymessgr. go into c:/program files/ and delete any folder associated with yahoo or yahoo messanger (do this carefully as if you have other yahoo stuff by deleting this folder other yahoo apps may not work.
5. the version you may be trying to install may be in beta version meaning it may be buggy... try to downgrade or go to a more stable version: http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081108003342AAzupqV

Installing the Yahoo Messenger 8.1 needs an Internet connection. It could be that your laptop is disconnecting to the Internet while you're installing Yahoo Messenger 8.1 that's why it will not finish the installation process.

Make sure that your laptop has a stable Internet connection before installing the YM 8.1. If you have a modem or a router, it would be better to connect it directly to the modem or to the router with an ethernet cable rather than using the wireless connection.
