MSN Chat is back!

…this didn’t quite fit into any other category…

We’ve been working on bringing MSN Chat back for some time, we now have a working product that may be able to be integrated into Messenger. :smiley:

Due to the requirement of Internet Explorer, we’re using a separate application to host the MSN Chat Control. We do plan on having an IE version soon.

We’re interested in working on bringing back MSN Messenger, too. We have a custom server and a Microsoft Server. Not sure we’ll go down this road though.

A clever take on an old friend :slight_smile:. Perhaps I missed it, but I don’t recall seeing anyone doing this previously by hosting the COM control in a separate winform app (as opposed to hosting IE instead).

Small side note, it’s been a while since I’ve seen the chat control, it’s funny how some of the aesthetic fits in with the current Windows styles (ie. curved rectangles).

check my post here → I'm on the only human in the World with a original WLM 2012 back from the day ( i think)

i can drop an idea if you gonna be occupied with the project :slight_smile: :
''connect"" WLM2012 (msnp21) with the Skype (if msnp24 still exists Microsoft Notification Protocol - Wikipedia) in order to use the official ms server again–even the basic use like chatting.
