Updated: (Added a link to a Journal security fix)
Some folks still aren’t seeing handwrite tab even after installing the Journal Viewer. This may be an order of installation issue. Try removing MSN Messenger and Journal Viewer. Install Journal Viewer and then install MSN Messenger. Word is that fixes the problem.
One of the cool new features in Messenger 7.0 is ability to use Ink in a IM conversation on your PC to give your message that “hand written” look. Ink is usually a TabletPC feature, but in Messenger 7 it is available to anyone whose machine meets the minimum system requirements.
But, some folks are installing the beta only to discover that this feature isn’t "there". Here’s the low down on Ink in Messenger 7.
Minimum requirements for handwrite capabilities are:
- Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or above.
- Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer 1.5. Download now.
- Security Update for Windows Journal Viewer (KB886179). Download now.
