New version of Messenger available
A new version of MSN Messenger has been released that fixes
several problems including:
- MSN Messenger hanging at sign in with certain NATs
- MSN Messenger won't allow the transfer of certain file types such as JPG, PNG, MP3, etc. in some cases
- Error R6025
- The Main Window displays the incorrect status for "Always Sign in As" in some cases
- Crash when starting PhotoSwap
- Crash at shutdown after blocking a contact
- "What I'm Listening To" is now more reliable
- A certain infamous wink has been removed
- Fixes for Audio invites not working in some cases
... and several others that are not mentioned.
I recommend downloading this Quick Fix Engineering release
(QFE) as soon as possible. I clicked on the "Download and
install later" link at the bottom of the Download MSN
Messenger page, and double clicked the executable
installation file, after it was finished downloading.
Be careful in step 3 after you run the downloaded file,
since Microsoft uses defaults that you might not like. I
prefer the settings as given in the image below
Messenger installation step 3 after turning all 4 options off.
My article on how to add the handwriting feature has several
more tips on setting up MSN, a recommended read.
