Hi All, I have just installed Windows Live Messenger 8 on my brand new PC. I am getting a message within Windows Live Today, which says..... "There was an error during sign-in. Try again.If you are not using the most recent version of Messenger,please click below to upgrade." I have obviously got the most recent version, as I downloaded it from the Microsoft site, and when I click the upgrade button, nothing happens. Anybody got any ideas?
Hi Rdave13, Thanks for your reply. I've already sent an e-mail to microsoft (two in fact). I've been waiting for a reply for 5 days now and I've got fed up. I thought that somebody on the forum might just know a fix.I could be lucky!!
Open the link and there is a list in blue text under the heading "Frequently Asked Questions" It's to the right. Drag the whole page slightly to the left and click on one of the questions in the list. Ie, "error 8004011 or 80040154: you cannot sign in to Windows Live Messenger". A new page will open in the right hand side. Drag that page to the left slightly and expand the right side of that page to see the full text.
I've just received an e-mail from Microsoft, which was no help whatsoever, just the usual uninstall/reinstall. This is despite me telling them that I have already done this numerous times. I e-mailed back saying that their "solution" was no good. I expect I'll have to wait another 5 days. Just thought I'd give an update,and say thanks for all your help.
Hi ianeon, I did try installing Messenger 7.5, but found that my friends who have Live Messenger were getting a pop-p saying that they could not communicate with me because I had an old version of Messenger! Can't seem to win.
