Default 0x8000ffff -- When i Try installing Windows Live messenger..?

The Subject line of this thread specifically includes the words "Windows
Live messenger", so that is why I referred you to that newsgroup.
Just saying "Windows Live" is not very definitive. That group name covers
a whole suite of different programs, see .
Each of those programs has its own support group.
If you meant Windows Live Mail, its support group is .desktop

the desktop WindowsLive.
