Some International versions do not carry the call option. Try downloading from here.

Also, you may have a software problem
Close all programs when uninstalling, downloading and uploading.
After uninstalling from the Control Panel back this up with a visit to your 'C' drive to ensure the 'Messenger' program is fully deleted.
Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Programs files >> Yahoo >> Messenger.
With Vista, the Messenger folder should be fully deleted, all too often software gets left behind creating conflicts.If it is still visible, delete it manually before moving on.
Download ccleaner and run it through until your browser is clean.

I have the latest version of yahoo messenger but video call and voice call buttons are not active what i need to do to solve this problem ?


If they are grayed out it probably means the person you are chatting with are not chatting from Yahoo Messenger 10
Both parties have to be in version 10 in order to use the video feature.

I can't call pc to pc


It may have some causes:- First, check your internet connection. You should run the Call Setup Assistant before making voice calls for the first time. To run the Call Setup Assistant: Open the "Messenger" menu in the main Yahoo! Messenger window, and click "Preferences." Then, in the Preferences dialog box, click "Calling and Audio." In the Calling and Audio dialog box, click "Open the Call Setup Assistant." Follow the instructions to test your microphone and speakers and specify your Internet connection. Running the Call Setup Assistant will ensure that you have a high-quality voice experience within Yahoo! Messenger. You can run the Call Setup Assistant at any time to make sure your microphone and speakers are working properly or to change the type of Internet connection you are using. One important thing, your firewall must support outbound TCP (transmission control protocol) connections for the PC-to-PC voice feature to work. You might have a firewall blocking Yahoo! Messenger's PC-to-PC voice feature. If so, you need to open up some outgoing TCP connections. Note that it is the outgoing connections that matter, not incoming connections. In most firewalls, you have to specify a destination port or port range to open. Learn more about which ports Yahoo! Messenger uses. Even if you don't use a firewall, your Internet service provider (ISP) may use a firewall, a network address translator (NAT), or a proxy server that blocks voice traffic. Any of these could prevent you from using the PC-to-PC voice feature in Yahoo! Messenger. Please contact your ISP's network administrator for assistance getting around these issues. You must know that what ports are used by Yahoo! Voice services. Yahoo! Messenger with Voice will work if any one of these TCP ports are open: 5061, 443, 80. At least one of these ports must be open in order to make PC-to-PC or PC-to-phone (Phone Out) calls, or to receive calls (Phone In). If your connection to the web is through an http proxy, then you won't be able to make or receive calls with your PC. Hope it was helpful!

Yahoo messenger 'call computer' not working


Hey.. Just got solution for this, all you need to do is go to Preferences (Ctrl+Shift+P) and then go to Connection and down below you would find Internet Connection, set it to HIGH-SPEED (T1-LAN) and click on Apply and then Ok. All you have to do now is to EXIT (dont just close it but Exit out of the Messenger) and then launch the Messenger again. You should have the Call setup options under Calling and Devices in Preferences. (Preferences are under the Messenger menu) -- Dev
