Windows Live Messenger 8.0


#1

Hello I was wondering when wlm 8.0 will be added?

@Machintosh_Lapfan sorry it’s not known when it would be in working condition. we’re going to have to wait for now.

I do wonder if the assistant that comes with messenger 8.0 would be a problem. it’s two different programs installed either separately or inside the installer for messenger. back then when i installed messenger 8.0 it was installed separately. but the one I found has it inside the installer.

if he brings back 8.0 i grew up with 8.0 :slight_smile: btw my MSN is samuelhsamuelh@hotmail.com

That doesn’t appear to have been an issue in my testing, but I’ve been redirecting the original domains to my servers, it may or may not require patching for Escargot, I haven’t looked into whether the Sign-In Assistant requires connections anywhere. I’m guessing it’s not critical though.

This blog post (https://web.archive.org/web/20060513175630/http://spaces.msn.com/winliveid/Blog/cns!AEE1BB0D86E23AAC!222.entry) suggests it’s basically just for storing multiple credentials.

hmm, that’s something that should be looked into more. maybe it does have some connection to 8.0. not critically I suppose. back then I had some issues signing in and I installed it which helped me sign in messenger not from internet explorer but directly though messenger.
that’s probably due to it’s surveillance of login.live.com. not sure at this moment though.
