Seems like your Firewall setting is blocking YM from downloading the installation file from Yahoo!. Are you using a third party firewall program, or just Windows Firewall? in both cases, you may have to turn off the firewall prior to installing ym. Dont forget to turn it back on after installation

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:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/internet-explorer-7-details.aspx
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.

I can't install Yahoo! Messenger showing this error message:


The issue lies in the Firewall settings. The Windows Firewall has blocked the Application from connecting to Web Servers. You must have to unblock it to get the problem resolved. If you have a Anti-Virus Firewall, reconfigure it, this will erase the Firewall's rules and will ask again that do you want the application from connecting to internet. You allow it and then it can download.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

File download problems


Hi there,

This could be a possible that you have set the firewall to block some download and pop-ups on a certain port.

better to re-configure again your firewall settings again to do so..

Anyway if you want a YM exe and not to download it, I have here which you don't have to download the installation, and all you need is to install it and use it.

Let me know here again.

Yahoo messanger installation


Problem:
"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation"

Solution:

Hi,

I tried to solve this. I went through alot of forums. I uninstalled Yahoo messenger and tried installing new one. I downloaded and pressed "Run as an administrator" when i got this response

"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation Please check firewall settings and retry installation."

I did the following:
Turned of Windows Firewall( Search )
Uninstalled Yahoo messenger
Downloaded New One
Used CCLEANER to clean the computer. Download CCLEANER from www.filehippo.com

Then I checked INTERNET EXPLORER:

Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings -> Click on Automatically Detect Settings (Unclick everything else except this option) ->Apply -Ok

Check if www.yahoo.com opens in Internet Explorer.

Now Install Yahoo Messenger.
It should work.

Thanks
