Question about Computers & Internet
When I try to use my cam on MSN ,I get the following message:
Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)
However, I have followed the answer given previously to this problem i.e. open satets.ini and change from 1 to 0. However, when I try and save this change, it says this path cannot be created.
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.
