Help! Pre-patched WLM 8.5 not letting me sign in on Windows 8 RTM (not Windows 8.1)


Problem description: Can’t sign in to Windows Live Messenger

Error code/error message: 80048821

What has been tried so far: Signing in

Messenger version: 8.5.1302.1018

Windows version: Windows 8 (NT 6.2.9200)


i remenber using msn 7.5 with no poblems in windows 8.0


I’ve been getting that error alot in WLM and MSN messenger whilst messing around in a WinXP VM I found that if you don’t enable ‘remember me’ and such and just input your email/pass normally it would work dunno if that will help you though


this happens in windows xp , windows 8 works normal


also wlm dont work in xp , only msn 7.5( and lower )
