Yahoo! Messenger is unable to download files needed for install
yahoo!7 messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please
check firewall settings and retry installation.
I found the answer its so simple, The problem has nothing to do with firewalls.
Yahoo instant messenger (yim) needs internet explorer 7 or above version to
enable yim to operate properly with the current yim versions. If you have an
earlier version of IE (I was using IE 6 coz I always use firefox and did not
have windows update enabled coz I did not want my windows operating system to be
revealed as it was copied and theredore not legit) So I disabled windows update
and kept using firefox, but even if you never use internet explorer, yim still
needs internet explorer 7 to operate without these errors shown above. I tried
to fix it for weeks thinking it was fiewall or such, but it just needed IE 7 so
I downloaded it here:
and even tho it says its for a windows server it still worked on my windows
XP pro 64bit and now yim is working properly, allowing multiple copies of
contacts etc, no problems at all now. I also downloaded firefox version 35,
which helps yim too coz its yahoo preferred.
