I see they haven't fixed the annoying "Install Flash" Dialog every single time you login on messenger.

must be something on your end, never seen that message here (2 laptops / 1 desktop).

Installed. Running smooth... Even using less resources than Beta 1. No problems either, chatting with Facebook friends and they even added my Myspace contacts to my contact list this time when I connected. Pretty neat.

Sorry but this is how a messenger should look like ...

Snip!

I must admit, that looks pretty clean and slick. Even though I've Trillian 5 installed, I hate the way the window acts when a new tab pops-up.

You have flash installed? ... because I don't.

It's a mystery why they haven't switched to Silverlight for the ads.

Why don't you have flash? It requires flash for stuff like Animated DP's and Winks.

Well, if you don't have flash installed they show you javascript ads. They are a lot less annoying.

I don't want it. And I don't really care about animated DPs or winks.

I wouldn't have minded if it asked me once, but every time I sign in is too much.

:angry: Ok ! This "No internet connection" error drives me crazy. It happens with the full installer, the web installer, the old installer. I updated my drivers, DirectX and even reinstalled Windows 7. It's not working... WHAT DA HELL MAN ?!

Yea honestly WLM has been annoying me a lot lately.. it's so ridiculously bloated and sluggish. I'll be using Trillian as my main client from now on (Y)

The customisation of Trillian is pretty awesome.

Damn! The apatch creator is switching ... that's a sad state for msn messenger, apatch was the only thing that made it usable.

Is there a way to remove the ads completely yet?

Not that I know, if you don't like them then go to a different program. It's ad-supported to pay for the app, it's great and it's free. Why not put up with ads, they are not bothersome at all.

Same problem here... And now my older Live essentials ain't working no more since the new installer apparently f***ed it up! :angry:

What's going on?

A-Patch Updated.

Thanks :D

On another note, did anyone else have the problem where you can't see your friend's themes when in a conversation with them? I only see the default blue theme with everyone I chat with :s

I get this two, could be one of two reasons

1. This feature is gone from 2011

2. It only works with others using 2011.

I suggest making asupport post here and see what they say.

Yeah I will, but I don't think the feature is gone because when you right click their theme in a conversation window, you get a check-list saying "Show my contact's theme". I also tried with a friend using 2011 and he sees my theme and i see his theme as the default blue.. but yeah going to report it.

Every time I open/starts up Messenger Live Essentials beta 2, it crashes and starts to send error report.

After this, messenger opens up, and seems to be working fine.

This happens every time messenger is exit and closed.

I am on windows 7 64 bit+sp1 beta, no idea if Messenger Live Essentials beta 2 cannot run on it.

Messenger Live Essentials beta 2 runs without any problems on my other PC with windows 7 32 bit (no beta sp1 on)

The ad is nearly 80% of the size of the contact list in the expanded view.

In any case, I installed this on my old laptop... man has this program gotten bloated. Flash animations? Why? The feeds from facebook look like a mess in the social view. I think I'll be joining ahmz in switching to Trillian.
