Cannot log in in MSN Messenger 5.0


#1

Hello, I’m setting up a VM with Windows 2000 and I installed and patched MSN Messenger 5.0, but this message keeps appearing:


Sorry if I’m wasting your time, by the way


#2

Try using a pre-patched version of www.escargot.log1p.xyz, not a version patched by you :wink:, if that does not works, it’s because MSN Messenger is not compatible with VMs (i think :unamused:)

  1. I tried with the pre-patched version
  2. I had another VM (this time with Windows XP and MSN Messenger 7.5) and it worked
    :confused:

#4

Well, i don’t know what other thing we can do


#5

try browsing with the IE in th VM, does it load https://escargot.log1p.xyz?
edit: whoops Escargot does not use www in its address.


#6

Escargot doesn’t support Windows 2000.

I know I’m bumping a dead thread, but a friend of mine is having the same problem.

He’s using an XP vm to run this version of MSN, and he’s using a prepatched version.

The same XP advice as per normal:

EDIT: Also of note, make sure the date/time is set correctly, and they may want to try using 8.5 temporarily, as the error codes provided back are far more useful for solving problems.


#9

The VM he’s using doesn’t support IE8.

:thinking:

I’m not sure what that means as XP is XP, but okay. Based on some other results we’ve done recently, that may not be a strict requirement but I haven’t had time to test without it, so try some of the other suggestions and report back on the results.

My Windows XP VM supports IE8. :stuck_out_tongue:

IDK if the chances of successfully installing IE8 on XP lies on the service pack used, but I guess it seems likely. :stuck_out_tongue:
