Praise be to God.

Current Version: 1.4.0 RC2 (build 31) ~ WLM

Updated: 5/7/2008

Supported Versions: 8.5.1235.0517, 8.5.1238.0601, 8.5.1288.0816 & 8.5.1302.1018

With a new (beta) version of Windows Live Messenger (8.5) comes a new and improved A-Patch. A-Patch makes patching Messenger easier than ever before. Not only are there tonnes of options to choose from, but now there's a (rough) Preview which lets you see the changes as you select them! (A change log will be added once I've come back from work and caught up on some sleep.)

You just put all other patches to shame. While I haven't used it in a while since I don't use the official client, the fact that you not only got up to date with 8.5 but also implemented the preview feature is a testament to your skill.

Why can't you uncheck options until you find which one is causing the problem?

You've got the wrong file. Try to look for one that's not through rapidshare and is a straight .exe

Ahmz055, one of the reasons why I stopped using A-Patch was because there were several features that Mess Patch had over yours. Will you be adding those missing soon to make A Patch final?
