Original thread:Tema de Windows Live messenger 2009 para Windows Live Messenger 8.5
This is a more accurate version of roflmao456’s (remastered by Luis_Leandro) 2009 skin.
Most of the resources have been taken from WLM 2009 or modified to look similar.
Some off looking resources have also been fixed(like the status icons’ locations).

The replacement files also includes 3 msgres.dll’s; 2 with 3GS ads and one with an alternate placeholder ad(which is the default one).
The configuration for the skin and the instructions are in the root of the .rar file.
