Messenger on Windows CE/Mobile


can i talk about windows CE/Mobile for a second:

in the EXACT same place as the Server registry string for Messenger 1-4:

(i tryed to login, but this is windows 10, the VPC Network Driver BLUESCREENS my computer)

Escargot and YMSG (Yahoo! Messenger)

Interesting. This fills me with loads of hope.


GREAT!! I’ve got a Windows Mobile 5 PocketPC mobile phone. That means I can place ESCARGOT in it?


Possibly, do you have the Windows Mobile 5 SDK installed?


Actually, after testing, this only applies to PPC/WindowsSP 2003.




Actually, now that there is a MessengerService Directory in the Registry, which was not there when i opened RRE, i’m going to test on Windows XP SP3.


took a long time:
don’t know what it’s doing lol


i actually cannot confirm that this works
make sure Old MSN Support is on though.


When stupid windows update finishes, i’m Going to try. Should we maybe make a new topic?


I have a PDA with Windows Mobile 2003 SE and I would love to see Messenger working again on it!


the problem here is that ebuddy, like the msn java app uses a proxy xmpp server. So it is difficult to develop or revive the original app. because it´s necessary to have a server for it. the bad news would be that there is no documentation to create that server. I think instead making another MSN Server.


I have had several attempts to make MSN Messenger on Windows Mobile 2003 SE work… But nothing seems to go on, registry tweaks won’t give any other result than ‘incorrect login/password’ (which is still better than ‘service unavaliable’). Hexediting the ‘instmgr.exe’ isn’t likely the option too, due to I haven’t found any strings associated with adresses nor protocols anyhow. Maybe you know some better tool to rip up ARM-compiled binaries… Or maybe you can spot the other place, ie. DLL or some textfile that can be modified to get the job done :wink: But I actually think that’s the server side issue - not being completly sure, though still wondering.

Hmmm... A thing

MSNP8/Tweener, i have nothing else to conclude that this could work.
