As much as I love A-Patch and always use it on Messenger; it's probably not wise for anyone actually IN the beta to use it, as it'll modify the client beyond the scope of the beta testing.

Indeed, serious testers shouldn't use any patches at all.. but for the rest of us :cool:

Here's a conondrum:
If posting pictures of the program is against the rules (as it breaks the holy grail of NDA), why is patching the software (which is strictly forbidden in the EULA) not considered to be against the rules here?

As per license.rtf in the Messenger directory (and during installation):

"You will not disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer any software included in the service, except and only to the extent that the law expressly permits this activity."



I'm not against the A-Patch of course as it is a fine program - just wondering at the slightly hypocritical stance on the subject.

There are gray areas to all of our rules (some more than others) and we allow flex where we have room. If Microsoft were to clamp down on apps like these, you can rest assured we would immediately disallow any further discussion.

Just you, but it usually goes down when there's a new version.
