Problem installing any version higher then 4

Problem description: Can’t install any version higher then 5.0

Error code/error message: “Your computer has a newer version of MSN Messenger then the one you are trying to install” Happens to any installer higher then 4. I have no higher version at all. 1-4 does work though despite it being older versions.

What has been tried so far: Deleting all versions, installing just 5, still nothing

Messenger version: escargot-msn-5.0.0575

Windows version: Win 7 Pro 64 bit

First uninstall WLE 2009+ From the control panel and then uninstall Windows Live or Windows Live Essentials 2011/2012
