Windows Live Messenger Upgrade Problem


  • When I login to WLM I am prompted to upgrade WLM I do and it appears to upgrade, when I attempt to logon on I am prompted to upgrade again this happens over and over. If I remove Windows Live Essentials then reinstall it will work 1 time then same problem on 2nd login attempt. I followed all troubleshooting suggestions on including a clean install. All other live programs a closed during the attempt. I am using XP and IE 8 recently upgraded to IE 8 maybe related? This is driving me nuts!! Any suggestions, thanks much

  • I've been told that apparently this wonderful new WLM is NOT...and I repeat...NOT... compatible with XP. Even though it now has begun forcing ALL WLM users to upgrade before they can log in again...irregardless of the OS they are on.

    Thanks, Microsoft. /sarcasm
