No sound on MS Messenger

  [DELETED] 09:39 14 Nov 2003

Both I, and a friend, have installed the latest MS Messenger 6.1. We both have Logitech webcams, with built in microphones, and have run the MS Messenger audio/video tuning wizard with OK results.

When we connect, we get good video but no audio. However, on connecting to Yahoo messenger, we get both, although the video quality is better with MS Messenger. Both of us are on broadband. Has anyone got some advice?.

It looks as if lots of people have been having exactly the same problem.

Has anybody tried out your suggested method?

From the info posted on ©®@$? link, it seems that the new version of the rtcdll.dll file is the culprit. It is suggested that replacing this with the older version normally found in windows/system32 will cure the problem.

As GoldenEagle has already asked, has anyone tried it?.

I tried to make this change in my Win-XP pro, even deleting the existing latest version. I copied the recommended version in to the folder, but it promptly reverted back to the new version.

Surely Microsoft could have corrected the problem when releasing version 6.1; they know about it in version 6.0.

my thoughts exactly

i have msn 6.1 and xp without the problem

also have zone alarm firewall installed,

I have now managed to change the file as suggested; (I forgot I had MS Messenger running at the time).

Hopefully, my friend in Canada has the computer knowledge to do the same.

if you both have xp and broadband why don't you use remote assistant, if he has a problem
