Lets hope Messenger Plus release an update soon, I have no chat logs now. I hate the integrated chat log.. simply because I've had MsgPlus since long before Messenger ever introduced the chat logging :)

Please let it be soon!!

WLM9... Ugly! :x

I like the top of the main window (less stuff).

But the contact list looks like my daughter made it.

Aaaand, I won't be using it until I can remove those ads.

Seriusly ? you use THAT and you say WLM9 was designed by an amateur ? .....

are you sure you posted theright screenshot...

SRSLY!

Yahoo Messenger for Vista has far better design. That should be quite obvious.

Can you seriusly tell me what you like about WLM 9? I might be missing something.

I'll be the one that says both designs are equally pleasing to the eye. The downside with Yahoo! For Vista is that it performs much slower and lacks a lot of features.

YEs, I do, especially over that abomination to design that is YiM. The only reason anyone ven likes that is becauseof transparency, but really, the only transparency that could save that itnerface is 100% all over.

I'm getting "windows Live Communications Platform has Stopped Working" when i run Messenger 9.0 :( Does anyone know whats cauding it? tried installing and uninstalling and nothing.

My WL Photo gallery has been crashing like crazy ever since I installed it. Not even once it has stayed up. Also saw the com. platform error after one crash which took down everything else (Mail, messenger) with it.

post-62693-1221701809_thumb.jpg

The available "solution" blames the crash on Xvid which I don't even have on this system(only ffdshow AFAIK). Going to try and install latest version of it.

Does Messenger support tabbed chat's yet?

Not in this version :).

I quite like the look of Messenger - it's much better than 8.5, which was bad enough to make me go back to 8.1. It's a pity Messenger Plus! doesn't work yet, otherwise I would switch right away.

But is it just me or does Messenger still not have a high-resolution icon? The Wave 3 Installer doesn't seem to have one either. I realise this is still a beta, but that's just inexcusable...

Not everything in this world is made for high resolution screens. Get used to it my friend. The icon looks fine.

Wish there was a standalone installer for WLM9

If there's high demand for it, I'll gladly host them for you all. Anyone else wanting the standalone installers?

Realizing that these are freely on liveside....whats going on with the managed beta? Mine still says pending. Anyone actually in it?

Check your inbox and newgroup account :).

Can this be installed over the older Live products? Or do I have to manually uninstall them?

Yes, they'll automatically be updated.

It doesn't feel as nice for me... The default colour changing doesn't work, it only changes it for that window, not every other window or the toasts.

The interface is too spread out for my liking too... the convo windows have way too much space devoted to the DP bit, I don't maximise windows and the smallest box on the screen is the actual convo box if I show DPs.

Also, do custom smileys work for anyone else? I lost all mine in the upgrade and now they don't work in convos :(

Sharing folders back would be nice too :p

The color changing does indeed work, just not for conversation windows because they now go by what your contacts have as their "theme".

Or you just could megaupload the Messenger installer yourself and post it here for the rest of us.

I believe it's "Dr. Watson", the program that creates an error report

if the program crashes.

WLM refuses to sign in when behind a HTTP proxy for me. Sits there forever as "signing in"...well, presumable forever. It's been 30 minutes so far, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna kill it in a minute.

Haven't tried it yet, waiting for Plus! and Mess Patch updates for it but for a few months now I have feared the load running Messenger is beginning to put on my system and as much as it kills me, I think I may go on to use Adium or Miranda or the equivalent following Messenger 9's final release.

It just all depends on how much more my computer needs to work when running it.
