How do I patch the WLM 8.0.0683 beta version correctly?

I have the unpatched 2006-released 8.0.0683 Branches beta version of Windows Live Messenger installed in my computer running Windows 11, and it is the only beta build of WLM 8.0 I like, because it introduced brand new sound effects at the time.

I need to patch this version so I can use it to chat with somebody else. Are there any instructions how to get it working?

you need to do manual patch which there is a tutorial on the escargot site. i can make it patched if you want.

I’ll try that!

Good news! I got WLM 8.0683 Beta working by patching it using the Escargot Switcher!
