Sorry what I should have said was there's a different d/load for each os.

It should work on any Windows from 98 on click here

Internet Explorer has to be installed.

I wonder why d/ has them listed as a different d/load for each window O/S it seems a bit stupid doesn't it?unless it's just to confuse me. DG

Looking more closely at your link, the different downloads are different sizes in MB suggesting that they are indeed different files. You may well have hit the nail on the head.

Maybe the link I gave to the MS download site determines which Windows you have and selects the right one?

unfortunately I tried both your links and both versions downloaded (indeed different sizes) give me the same error 0x81000306 not a clue what's mean

Is click here the error that you get?

thanks Vog
any idea which setting I can change?

Are you using a firewall? I would think that is the most likely cause. You will need to set it to allow Messenger to connect. How this is done will depend on which firewall you have.

If you don't have a firewall, I'm a bit stumped.

no firewall in fact!!!
