Windows Messenger 4.7 (XP) ITA + Windows Live Essentials

Good evening everyone, I’m new, my name is Manuela and I’m Italian, I hope to post this question in the correct section. I’m currently looking like crazy for these two things:

  1. I’m a computer enthusiast and I’m trying to run some old programs that I liked in my Windows 11 operating system, I was looking on the net for the Italian version of the very old Windows Messenger 4.7 (XP), I found downloadable only in English, I asked for your very kind and precious help, then I’ll start looking for other programs always in Italian that ran on Windows XP!

  2. Also, I kindly ask if it were possible to have the installers in Italian for all versions of Windows Live Essentials, (nowhere to be found now!) I think they go from the 2009, 2010, 2011 and the latest 2012 versions, I don’t know if they exist other versions, so I can finally add them to my collection!

I hope you can help me, a hug, thanks!

Hi Manuela :slight_smile:

  1. Here’s the installer for 4.7.2009 for Italian.
  2. Here are the full installers for Italian 2011 and 2012. You can find the others in the collection.

Messenger 2010 is just a beta version of 2011, and if it was localized to Italian, I don’t have the files I’m afraid.

Thank you very much indeed friend, you have been very kind! :grinning:

Also, I wanted to ask how can I overcome the problem between Escargot and Windows Live Essentials 2012, I have read many threads talking about this type, basically I install Windows Live Messenger 2009 but it won’t let me install because of Windows Live Essentials 2012 (which use!) I tried to uninstall the whole suite and reinstall WLM 2009, but nothing, do you have any kind of suggestion to solve this problem?

Thank you very much!



ti conviene segregare i due ambienti, cioé avere un ambiente dedicato a Windows Live Messenger (che intrinsecamente è patchato per andare) e un ambiente separato per far girare Windows Live Essentials (banalmente una macchina virtuale potrà prestarsi benissimo).

Spero di averti aiutato!
