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.

Yahoo! Messenger is unable to download files needed for install


yahoo!7 messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please

check firewall settings and retry installation.
I found the answer its so simple, The problem has nothing to do with firewalls.

Yahoo instant messenger (yim) needs internet explorer 7 or above version to

enable yim to operate properly with the current yim versions. If you have an

earlier version of IE (I was using IE 6 coz I always use firefox and did not

have windows update enabled coz I did not want my windows operating system to be

revealed as it was copied and theredore not legit) So I disabled windows update

and kept using firefox, but even if you never use internet explorer, yim still

needs internet explorer 7 to operate without these errors shown above. I tried

to fix it for weeks thinking it was fiewall or such, but it just needed IE 7 so

I downloaded it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/internet-explorer-7-details.aspx
and even tho it says its for a windows server it still worked on my windows

XP pro 64bit and now yim is working properly, allowing multiple copies of

contacts etc, no problems at all now. I also downloaded firefox version 35,

which helps yim too coz its yahoo preferred.

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.

I cant installe yahoo messenger because of a fire wall.


Try use Yahoo Messenger 9, the latest version. Before download yahoo messenger, make sure firewall allows your connection to download it. It shows that your PC protected from any harmful software because of your firewall. One more thing download your yahoo messenger only for trustful sources websites, it much better. i think you should check your firewall settings. Check also your Windows Firewall. I think there are some problems in your firewall settings. It may be blocked your yahoo messenger from downloading it into your PC. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to install yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. I think this tips can be help you a little bit.

Good Luck!

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
