Exit Messenger completely (this means right clicking the Messenger tray icon and choosing Exit).

Open your registry editor (Start > Run > regedit.exe) and navigate to: for Messenger 8.0: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger for Messenger 8.1: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsLive\CommunicationsClient

Once there, you must remove the following subkeys: for Messenger 8.0: Policies for Messenger 8.1: Shared
Close your registry editor and restart Messenger.Make sure you don't delete or modify anything else. Wrong alterations can cause serious problems for Windows.

For those who are not comfortable editing the registry, I've made a registry file which will do these alterations for you. Simply download the file, save it and run it:

or use reginout cleaner

Says service is temporarily unavailable, try again later. error code 8e5e0408


OK. This is a glitch in the 'program dowload" with XP.

Step 1. Uninstall it correctly and completely.
Step 2. Select RUN. DO NOT select download as here lies the glitch.

That's it.

Error code 8e5e0408 for msn messenger 9.0


Check your event logs running C:\Windows\System32\eventvwr.exe
If you see lots of wlcomm errors under Windows Logs/Application, that means wlcomm has no access to your user directory.

To solve the problem:

1. Back up your user directory under c:\Users\%username% just in case
2. right-click on x:\users\%username% and go to properties
3. go to security tab and click advanced
4. Change the permission set to the following:
Type Name Permission Inhefited from Apply To
Allow %username% Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files
Allow SYSTEM Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files
Allow Administrators Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files

Make sure you uncheck the "include the inheritable..." and "replace.." checkboxes.

Click OK and let it run.

Now you should be able to log on to Messenger.

if that doesnt help

  1. Go to http://help.live.com/help.aspx?project=a&querytype=topic&query=Default_Help_PROC_MessengerVersion.htm&market=en-us
  2. Choose the Messenger version that you're using. (A new window will open).
  3. On the new window, click any topic at the left side of the page
  4. Click "Get more help" located at the bottom right part of the page
  5. Click "Get support."

thank you good luck

Error code in windows live messenger 14.0


Try to clear the cache

C:/users/%USERNAME%/contacts/%YOUREMAIL%
C:/users/%USERNAME%/appdata/local/Microsoft/Messenger/%YOUREMAIL%

Delete these two folders and then restart Windows Live Messenger.

Hi I am desperate


Hello,

Please try this. Delete or rename the following directories:

C:/users/%USERNAME%/contacts/%YOUREMAIL%
and
C:/users/%USERNAME%/appdata/local/Microsoft/Messenger/%YOUREMAIL%

where %USERNAME% is your username in Vista and %YOUREMAIL% is the email you use to connect to WLM.

Best regards,
Zizzler
