Windows Live Messenger Odd Bug? (delete Me)

Louis Yikes! Next test I removed them in MSN Live then readded with Pidgin. Skype Video lets you engage in audio and video calls with your contacts, using Skype. I tried ur suggestion, AND IT WORKED! More about the author

Well, guess what, they fixed it the Microsoft way: They simply removed the "See who has you on their buddy lists" feature completely, probably knowing that it is broken. Please see the steps in Set A. I made the experience that it sometimes reports the "Has you" status back correctly, but unfortunately not always. A newer version has been downloaded and is available.

To make this work on XP, gmoon stated: "In XP, you can also disable messenger from "Services", which is found under Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools..." Antagonizer stated how to Live long and prosper 🙂 Reply ↓ janice August 6, 2011 at 11:51 AM Thank you so much. Windows 10 Mobile, like Windows 10 for PCs, includes three apps that tie into the Skype ecosystem.

This is typically a server issue, because not only pidgin, amsn shows "has you: no" as well. This started on on March 5th. In fact, it already has "startup type disabled" and service status is "stopped"

Your instructions are lacking but you'll find them here:

Unfortunately, it doesn't work in XP.I believe you are referring to Click Start, click Run, copy and paste this message %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter.

Every single time. And it was easier than I expected. Other clients, even the official one, show the erroneous behaviour as well. After deleting the Windows Live Contacts folder and restarting again, he was gone from the list.

I just tried to reproduce what you suggested with a friend in my buddy list and the information about the the "Has you" status is still incorrect. http://cgmguide.com/windows-live/windows-live-messenger-sign-in-issue-again.php Can anyone offer advice?

I really hate the curse of MSN messenger start up with windows!

Hopefully the fix will stick. comment:38 Changed 7 years ago by kokotron I noticed today that i get a "Has you: yes" status only by people who added me first, after the "Has you: No" error None of them had such issue. http://cgmguide.com/windows-live/can-t-load-windows-live-messenger.php I also somehow got my blocklist reset this time when switching between Pidgin and Windows Live Messenger.

MSN just gets more confusing it also appears that "Get Info" is now failing as well as Pidgin getting MSN Avatars... Click Start, click Run, copy and paste this message %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter. This ticket remains open.

Can I hear your solution anyways?
Here's a different solution that should work for all versions. Do not post confidential information, especially passwords! Notify me of new posts via email. After deleteing the offline contact then adding again I could see him but his nick name would not update.

In cases were people report that the original client still reports that a buddy has added one to his/her contact list, he should try removing the Windows Live Contacts folder and I can send messages to a friend with Windows Live Messenger 8.1.0178.00 but not to another with Windows Live Messenger 8.5.1018 . Can someone fix this? http://cgmguide.com/windows-live/windows-live-messenger-will-not-open.php as soon as you log back into WLM it will come up on startup again...

We both used the latest available version of MSN Live Messenger for Windows to test that. I prefer to access Skype that way, for a variety of reasons. away. comment:44 in reply to: ↑ 43 ; follow-up: ↓ 45 Changed 5 years ago by glaubitz Replying to untit1ed: 2.10.4 - Still present.

I didn't see it in Services, so I couldn't disable it there. It also seems to be present on other third party clients as well, aMSN seems to do it too.

I give up. I was going nuts trying to get rid of the stupid popup sign in thing. you are my hero!!! I will confront Microsoft with my results now, again.

I don't know why I was able to fix it with my other contact on two seperate accounts... *shrug* I really hate Microsoft right about now. Finally I got rid of it. I swear every other week I have to download and install the reviver again. Reviver 2 supports modifying all language versions and can automatically install either 2009 or 2011/2012 versions in 47 different languages.

Instructables is only interested in selling its upgrades. Just a heads up, this folder connects your Messenger account to the MSN Contact Server. Wasn't worth my time to redo it. Don't forget to empty the Deleted Items file. _________________________ In my PC corner for the winter, gaming and knitting.

Thanks!! I'm using Pidgin-devel 2.4.0 compiled from Monotone this morning, with --enable-msnp14 I'd love to help debugging this issue. Next test I removed them in MSN Live then readded with Pidgin. I will put more pressure on Microsoft.
