If I am right, a partial installation has been done before you did actually run the full installation, might be because of connection failure or installation failure, etc..etc..


First check whether yahoo messenger is shown on the Control Panel's Add/Remove program lists. If so uninstall it. Sometimes it's not possible to run the uninstaller, in that case you'll need to uninstall it using an uninstaller like handy uninstaller (click here to download).

I would also suggest you to install it using the offline installer instead of the regular installer. Click here to download offline installher.


Don't forget to restart your computer after it's uninstalled, otherwise it may not allow you to re-install it.

If the problem persists, there's must be a registry issue in the system registry entries, you need to run a registry cleaning using a registry cleaner. There are many freewares, you can use Ccleaner to clean your computer's registry (click here to download CCleaner). After you run the registry cleaner, restart your computer and try reinstalling. If the problem persists, let me know, but you should at least follow the sequence of installing and uninstalling otherwise it's not worth trying all these. Like if you don't restart your system after it's unistalled, it'll not be successful.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot install yahoo messenger 9.0.0.2128


Vista is the key as its looking for the administrator to complete the installation
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.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Yahoo messenger 9 on vista


Hi,
Yahoo! Messenger for Vista can be downloaded from Yahoo! site, but it’s a small initial setup loader that also include annoying features such as Yahoo! Toolbar. To directly download the standalone installer package which can also be used for offline installation, use the following link.
ymsgr_vista_setup.2008.01.11.428_us.exe




Hope this helps

Unable 2 use messenger for vista


Hi There!

As i Understand you successfully downloaded yahoo messenger foe vista, however you cannot login using your username and password.
It seems like some of your files are corrupt. Please uninstall yahoo messenger and reinstall again from the link given below,
http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/vista/

Also once you have installed the new yahoo messenger, see that you have internet connection to get connected using your username and password.

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
