Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

On installing yahoo messenger, the windows installer gives a message "incorrect commandline parameters." On clicking the yahoo icon after installation, it gives a message "this application has failed to start because application configuration is incorrect." Reinstalling the application might fix this problem. I have formatted the computer and installed windows XP again but still the same problem occurs again and again. Even uninstalling and reinstalling yahoo messenger does not help. What do you suggest.

Ahoo install problem, error message, incorrect command line parameters and application configuration is incorrect


Download messanger again and try installing again. It may have gotten corrupted in the download. If it still doesn't work then you have a problem with your operating system and may have to re-install it.

Hi,
All you need to do is install the latest version of MS Installer. You can find it on microsoft.com. also run the Windows Updater.
This error you are getting is caused by he Windows Installer, not by Yahoo itself.

Incorrect line parameters winos installer v 2.00.26.00.0


Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/10/27/installing-90-on-windows-vista/

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages

The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
Here is the best help/fix it sites I have found so far for Messenger,chat,and Yahoo in general. http://www.helpbytes.co.uk/ This one for Vista http://www.vista4beginners.com/tips-and-tricks
