Hi All

Have any of you been trying out the new Windows Live Messenger 2009?

I had to revert back to 8.5.

When I downloaded the Web Installer I get this message:

Error Code "os_check: 0x80280004
Check the system requirements for more details

I download the offline version from
click here

Installed ok but it wouldn't let me sign on?

Any Ideas??

Thanks Peeps! :-)

It might be a bad file Microsoft will have to fix this?

I noticed this on the link you downloaded from - although it still seems to download - as you say probably a glitch in the software

"Due to a request from Microsoft, this download has been removed temporarily. However, Windows Live Messenger 9 will be available for download here as soon as it is officially published. Check back often to ensure you don't miss it!"
