Official Windows Messenger Live BETA Thread

Modifying the exe disables shared folders though. =(

They signed the exe.

There might be a bit more to it than that. Apparently it's disabled for Australians (which according to your profile you are).

I did not like the new look at first, but it has grown on me a lot. I have had no problems with it at all. It?s running fine. Had not one crash with it, and I have been testing all the features to make sure. I have sent feedback on what I like and don?t though, so I feel im helping beta test it. A thanks goes to my mate Rob who sent me the invit:) :)

Just a screen-shot of it all open.

This is great. Does anyone know if the shared folder thing works with people who are on MSN 7.5?

As far as i know, the people who were invited do not have access to it. go to connect.microsoft.com, log in, if you have messanger 8 in there you can set the newsgroup password, if it's not in there (which i don't think it is for those people), then you won't be able to use the newsgroup.

I don't think its disabled for Aussies....Shared Folders also requires that you have a NTFS Partition and unmolded .exe that doesnt modify the 'digital signature'

OK - I'm not sure if anyone's clarified this in the ~32 pages before, but if you get invited to the Live Messenger beta, do you get invites of your own to pass on?

This is what is says when I log in to Windows Live Ideas (I was invited)

Hopefully they will give us some invites so we can return the favour.

Just to let people who dont know, You are free to sell your invites on ebay or the like. MS have said its cool with them. I read this from http://www.mess.be/ under the 'WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER 8.0 BETA CHAT'

This is what was said, to someone at MS:

Q: What do you guys think about people selling their windows live messenger invites on ebay?

A: I think it is cool. We actually have a pool to see what the highest price is.

To access the newsgroups or Connect website at all you must be a user invited to the beta by Microsoft.

All people invited by other people (testers) are only there to use the program and to test server load. :)

Will Messenger Live overwrite Messenger 7.5? I ask this because I have 2 messenger accounts but only 1 will allow me to use Messenger Live.

Yes when you install messenger live it will overwrite msn messenger 7.5 unless u rename the msn folder to a new name before you install windows messenger live!

Best thing to do...is just copy the complete folder and move it...then rename it MSN_7.5 and then create a shortcut from the msnmsgr.exe...then have the WLM install over the stuff in the default folder.
