MSN Camera Problems


If you have both McAfee SiteAdvisor and Windows Live Messenger 2009 installed, please take the following actions until a patch is out from McAfee because there are some incompatibility problems.

The workaround is pretty simple. All you need to do is to disable McAfee SiteAdvisor from monitoring msnmgr.exe but there is no option to do that. You’ll have to manually go to C:\Program Files\McAfee\SiteAdvisor\ and look for the file sasets.ini. Open the sasets.ini with notepad or your favorite text editor, locate the section titled [msnmsgr.exe] and change the value to 0 (1 means enable and 0 means disable).

Save the file and close it. You can either restart your computer for changes to take effect OR simply terminate and reopen Windows Live Messenger 2009. Yeah it’s frustrating that Windows Live Messenger 2009 has so many bugs and incompatibilities but no worries, I’ll slowly help you all to look for solutions and workarounds to make it work rather than downgrading back to MSN 8.5. According to Wikipedia, Windows Live Messenger is no longer beta and the latest version is Build 14.0.8064.206 released on 12 February 2009. You can head on to Live Messenger to download the latest Live installer (wlsetup-custom.exe) which can automatically update your Messenger if it detected there’s an update.

What is *.ini files ? how can i create it ? what is the use of it ?


.INI files are plain-text files that contain configuration information. These files are used by Windows and Windows-based applications to save information about your preferences and operating environment. "INI" stands for initialization.
Format of .INI Files.INI files contain one or more sections. Each section begins with a section name, which is followed by zero or more entries. An entry associates a keyname with a value. The general format is:

[section]
keyname=value

Comments can also be included in the file by prefacing the comment with a semicolon (;).

Windows and Windows for Workgroups use several standard .INI files for storing configuration information. These files are WIN.INI, SYSTEM.INI, PROTOCOL.INI, PROGMAN.INI, CONTROL.INI, WINFILE.INI, MSMAIL.INI, SHARED.INI, and SCHDPLUS.INI. Windows-based programs may also add sections and entries to WIN.INI, and they may add .INI files in the Windows directory.

Editing .INI FilesBecause .INI files use only plain text, they can be edited using any text editor or word processor. .INI Master also has a built-in text editor for making corrections in the .INI files you are diagnosing.

To create a custom Setup.ini file:
  1. Start the Setup INI Customization Wizard.
  2. Type the path to your Office XP administrative installation point, and then click Next. The wizard searches the specified network share for a Setup.ini file.
  3. From the administrative installation point, select an INI file on which to base your custom INI file. Or, click Browse to go to a different location and select a file. Click Next.
  4. Under Logging, select a logging mode, and then type a name for the log file or template. Click Default to use the logging mode that is specified in the INI file. Click Verbose to use all logging options. Note that verbose logging creates very large log files.
  5. Under Display, select a default display setting, and then click Next. The wizard searches the administrative installation point for additional packages (MSI files) that you can chain to the Office installation.
  6. Select the check boxes next to the packages that you want to include in your custom INI file, add packages or programs (EXE files) that are stored in another location, and then click Next.
  7. Use the arrow keys to determine the order in which you want Setup.exe to install the chained packages. The System Files Update package is always installed first (if required), followed by the Office XP package. You can change the order in which subsequent chained packages are installed.
  8. Select each package, specify the options that you want for that package, and then click Next. For each package, you can specify an MST file and a unique display setting, as well as additional property values.
  9. To add additional property-value pairs to your custom INI file, select a package, click Advanced Properties, type the properties and values that you want, and then click Next. The wizard displays a summary of the changes to save in the custom INI file.
  10. Click Save As, and then type a name and path for your INI file. The wizard supplies a sample Setup command line that specifies your custom INI file with the /settings option.
  11. Click Finish to quit the wizard.

I have the same problem with dual boot Windows 7 and XP Pro


To find the actual boot.ini file you will have to make hidden operating system files visible. To do this, open a folder such as My Computer then go to Tools>Folder Options. Within the new window that appears, select, "View" at the top. Now scroll down just a little ways and un-check, "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)." Now press OK.

Afterward open up My Computer (if it isn't already open) and double-click on your C:\ drive to look at its files. Within this region you should find the file named, "boot.ini."

NOTE: I do not recommend editing this file, as one mistake could corrupt your installation of Windows preventing you from starting Windows successfully. If you do edit the file, you do so at your own discretion and I in no way am responsible for any damages you cause through editing the boot.ini file.

Hopefully that's the information you were after. If not, let me know and I'll see if I can assist you further.
