Getting error code 80090004 even though I've installed Messenger Reviver and I'm on the latest version (16.4.3508.0205) any tips?

I've always enjoyed using Windows Live Messenger, and despise the fact that Microsoft is trying to kill it. It seems that Windows 8.1 tries to block it or something, because even repairing, patching with the reviver, etc, isn't doing anything.
Anyway, I'm having the same problem with Neobond, I can't sign on to it, even using the latest version of Reviver. For personal reasons, I really would like to keep using Windows Live Messenger (so please, spare me the 'Move to Skype' comments, I DO use skype. There are features on MSN that I need, that skype doesn't support.)
I sent a message to the guy who made Reviver about it. Maybe he'll see what he can do to fix it?
There is a work around:
I’m working on it, but it appears Microsoft has possibly deliberately broken it. However it seems 2009 is working, so if they uninstall Windows Live Essentials 2012 and install 2009 from Reviver instead, it will work.Go to the full post
