Hi All

Right i have 2 MSN Mesenger accounts, one i use for work and one which is for personal use. Is it possible to open 2 messenger windows and be logged onto each service at the same time. I often will only want the one messenger running at the same time, but it has happened a couple of times where i needed both.

Is this possible at all?

Many thanks.........John

Thanks for that, i extracted the files into the same directory as instructed to do so, but when i tried to run the patch i got an error message stating that i am running a diferent version of messenger.

Any other ideas? i am running version 6.2

thanks for your help.......John

Hi whilst it may not be exactly the answer you are looking for if you have windows messenger installed as well as MSN messenger you can log on to both of these at the same time with two separate accounts

I have MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, and Lycos Messenger which can all log on to the .net service.

What I do is just log on each IM program with a different account, simple as that!
