You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times until clean using the 'Run cleaner' control
Now select 'Registry' from the left hand menu and Repair any errors - Copy any information before deleting.

There should be something wrong while downloading the yahoo messenger applications, you can try once again from this link http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/win/ and right after this, click on the downloaded yahoo messenger downloader, the application will start downloading and it'll automatically install to your PC.

Application configuration is incorrect error


Uninstall previous YM than when you install again change the name of the destination directory ( ex: C:Program FilesYahoo2 ) ...it works for me.
First reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable from here:
