WLM 10 Beta Issues


  • Could someone please tell me how to

    view the chat history without having to see all the 

    coding text mushed up with the real im messages???


    I need to search for some important info between my colleagues,

    and searching through all coded text is a pain!


    Thanks in advance,

  • Windows Live Messenger chat history files(*.xml) are stored in your user profile

    C:\Users\<windows logon name>\Documents\My Received Files\<your Live ID + unique number string>\History

    A history file is created for each IM contact.

    Double click the xml file for a respective contact to open the *.xml file


    Fyi..the released versions of Windows Live Essentials are 2011(current) and 2009(last and final release May 2010).
