Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation please check firewall settings and retry installation


Then perhaps we could alter the way of the installation just a bit, instead of doing the setup online, why don't we give it a try for the offline ones. Here's the link for stand-alone setups you might want to check-up : 1) http://www.mydigitallife.info/yahoo-messenger-10-final-full-version-offline-standalone-setup-installer-download/ 2) http://www.geckoandfly.com/6309/download-yahoo-messenger-10-full-offline-installer-15-8mb/

Sometimes proxy setting or a firewall or even the anti-virus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or anti-virus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10. Even after installation, you might have to grant access to Yahoo from anti-virus, otherwise it may not connect. Usually when it's trying to connect a pop-up from AVG will ask if you want to let Yahoo Messenger to access Internet and you have to allow this.

Yahoo uses a downloader to download and install Yahoo Messenger, which may seem as a threat to the firewall and that's the reason why it may be blocked, so instead of turning the firewall off, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10.

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
