Microsoft Location Finder

  Sethhaniel 09:19 23 Nov 2006

Microsoft Location Finder is a client-side application that turns a regular WiFi enabled laptop, Tablet or PC into a location determining device without the addition of any separate hardware. When launched by a user, Microsoft Location Finder uses WiFi access points - or reverse IP lookup when WiFi is not available - to center and display the person's location on an Windows Live Local, enabling the user to quickly and easily search in their present location.

I installed it, but when I pressed Locate Me in the menu on the system tray it brought up the page with a box about installing Location Finder - which I've already done. Strange.

Hmm now it seems to be going round in circles - pressed the Install button from the website, when it finished I pressed Locate from the website and it again brought up the box saying that I don't have Location Finder installed with the option to install it. Uninstalled it now. :-P
