Windows Live Messenger 8.0.0566 Release Notes

Here are the release notes for Windows Live Messenger 8.0.0566:
 
This document describes the new features and known issues in Windows Live Messenger Beta v8.0.566.
 
New in this version
  • Improved Infrastructure
  • Over the last few months, the Messenger team has worked tirelessly to make Windows Live Messenger Beta more reliable and stable.
 
New Windows Live Look and Feel
  • Windows Live has a new look, and Messenger has been updated to match the rest of the Windows Live offerings. We look forward to your feedback!
 
Removed hover behavior
  • We received a lot of feedback saying that you didn’t like the expansion from one line to three lines when you hovered on a contact in the contact list. We listened! We removed this behavior.
 
Replaced status icons
  • Sometimes change is good. Sometimes it’s not. We tried using the same status icon for contacts that have their status set to Away, Out to Lunch, and Busy. The overwhelming response was “Change it back!” so we did.
 
Updated Sharing Folders
  • Sharing Folders has been overhauled! The sharing window status and progress bar has been updated, plus the activity log is now a separate window. 
 
Known Issues
 
Accessibility
  • The Sharing Activity Log window is not keyboard-accessible
  • Very little support for high contrast mode throughout the Beta
     
Contacts
  • EASI passport Messenger users don’t receive an error message when adding a federated contact as an instant messaging contact.
  • The main window doesn’t update after editing a contact.
     
Conversation Window
  • Conversation Window Colors are not remembered on upgrade
  • First Ink message sent to a contact might fail. Additional Ink messages are delivered.
  • Double-byte characters (DBCS) do not appear correctly in conversations with three or more participants when the DBCS input mode is selected in language bar. Workaround: click the Messenger contact list (or any other window) and then click the conversation window.
  • If you are running Internet Explorer 7.0, the conversation Message History might not open correctly. If you encounter this issue, in Tools > Options > Messages > Message History, change the path to the files to one that does not contain a space.
     
Installation
  • Upgrading from previous build prompts for reboot when a reboot is not required.
  • Messenger Beta cannot be installed on Windows 2000 Server
  • Before installing on Windows Vista, you must uninstall previous versions of Messenger. Upgrading from previous versions of Messenger is not supported and can result in unexpected behavior, such as Messenger repairing itself when first opened.
     
Mobile Messaging
 
  • Users may not be able to send SMS in some markets.
  • An incoming SMS is displayed on a new window instead of the existing Mobile IM window and the mobile contact that sent the message is not recognized as contact.
  • SMS appears to come from a contact other than the one that sent it. An SMS might also appear to come from the correct contact’s mobile number, but the contact’s name is not displayed with the mobile number.
  • When sending a message to a contact with no Vodaphone subscription or one that has run out of credit, an incorrect error message is displayed. The error message is “This message was not sent. To send messages to a mobile device, you must first set your country of residence for your Microsoft Passport and sign back into Messenger.”
  • When a Vodafone user is added by WVID, the Messenger user will not see the Vodafone user’s presence. In addition, the Vodafone user will not get the notification that he was added by a Messenger user. 
  • When a Messenger user tries to migrate a Vodafone number added using pre 7.5 Messenger client the migration will fail
     
Parental Controls
  • Parental controls are not supported in Messenger Beta, so restricted accounts cannot log in.
     
Sharing Folders
  • Sharing is not supported on unsigned versions of Messenger, such as if a third-party Messenger add-in is installed.
  • Long delays in replication may result when attempting to sync with multiple active sharing relationships.
  • Can’t delete, open, or edit files when filenames are too long. This most commonly occurs in the <%SystemRoot%>\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger\<email address>\Contacts directory. To take action on the file, rename it.
  • When sharing files with a user running Windows Live Messenger Beta v8.0.365, the Sharing Folders window incorrectly displays a warning that states “<username> has a version of Messenger that doesn’t have Sharing Folders, so you can’t share files with <username>.” Sharing Folders does work between v8.0.365 and 8.0.566.
  • Messenger might crash if you right-click several folders in the main Sharing Folders window and click Properties.
     
Windows Vista Support
  • Before installing on Windows Vista, you must uninstall previous versions of Messenger. Upgrading from previous versions of Messenger is not supported and can result in unexpected behavior, such as Messenger repairing itself when first opened.
  • Windows Vista does not support Voice Conversations (Computer Call).
  • Sharing silently fails if Messenger was installed using non-administrator account on Windows Vista.
  • On Windows Vista, the Sharing windows do not always work as expected. For example, gleams do not appear on new items in the Sharing Folder and clicking Delete on the right-click menu does not delete the file from the Sharing window.
  • On Windows Vista, Messenger might crash if you open the Games or Activities menus in the Conversation window.
  • When running the Connection Troubleshooter, a DNS error is reported even when there is no DNS error.
     
Other Issues
  • Personal settings, such as the display picture, are no longer selected after installing 8.0.566.
  • Windows Live Messenger Beta might crash if MSN Shell (a 3rd party plug-in) is installed.
  • PC to Phone calling is not available in all markets.
  • In some markets, while entering a password to sign in to Windows Live Messenger Beta, the cursor focus reverts to the username field.

    Last night Windows Live Messenger stopped working (no window or taskbar icon) on one of our desktops, now this morning the other desktop has the same issue, and at least 1 of 2 laptops are doing the same thing. Your last pushed update was crap….undo it and try again another day please….

  17. Cruise Planners - Eileen says:

    I downloaded the update and now I can\’t sign in.  It sez "You cannot use Windows Live Messenger at this time because your contact list is not available.  Please try again later.  Error Code: 81000378"  What\’s the deal?  This has been all day and I still can\’t log in.  Anyone else out there have this prob and get it fixed???

  23. BRANDEE says:

    I am also disappointed at the fact that when u use to sign into your mesngr, you could actually see ur contacts display pic in your contact box, and now you cant unless u check out their display card…. i hate it… I use to rave about this msngr… now i am just starting to become more and more annoyed with it.

  24. BRANDEE says:

    Everytime I sign in.. the main window comes up for a sec, then I get the lil "email" notification…and all of a sudden… its just up and diasappears…go to the lil msn guy in the taskbar and poof he goes to… what the hell is goin on? This is ridiculously frustrating…Mine was working fine last week as well, I haven\’t done anything different or adding anything…Dunno why this would happen so suddenly..and everytime I try signing on… It never fails… I am sick of trying to sign on. What a pain in the ass…

  29. gemma says:

    Have just downloaded msn messenger again as I\’ve had to have a new hard drive on my computer.  Everything seems to be ok except for the display pictures of my contacts – they won\’t show.  Have selected the box in options – general and show display pictures from others but hasn\’t made a difference.  Any ideas anyone
     

  30. Jia says:

    i just upgraded the LATEST version of msn as prompted. was using windows live messenger 8.0 before this. now, the contact names on the main window are REALLY SMALL, and their display pictures are REALLY small too. anyone who knows of how to solve it please contact me

  31. Zala says:

    My msn messanger keeps on signing me out, this has been happening for quite some time now and when I do sign in it shows me offline, it doesn\’t let my status be online. It was wrking perfectly well last week. Can someone help me plzzzz?

  32. Faith says:

    Ok, how come when I talk to someone the only font color is black and is in arial or times new roman.  When I\’m typing it shows me in the color and font I have chosen but any message I send or receive is in black… its annoying and makes the window seem boring

  33. jennifer says:

    Why say that the new messenger supports vista when nothing works?? Also, why is a windows messenging program NOT compatible with WINDOWS vista? That doesn\’t make any sense. If anything should be compatible it should be these two. Now I can\’t communicate with my family. I used to use the voice convo every day since I am military and overseas. Now I can\’t even do that.
     
    When will you be fixing this?!?!?! FIX IT SOON!!! I want to see AND hear my family again!!!

  34. collett says:

  37. Unknown says:

    since \’upgrading\’ (laughs) my live messenger yesterday to the newest version, every time i boot it up, i always get signed in for like, one second, if i\’m lucky, then it simply says, program not responding, and thats it…game over! i have googled this issue, but no advice on offer works at all, and despite various attempts to reinstall it, the same thing happens – if there\’s anybody out there who has experienced and overcome this problem, PLEASE contact me!! A beer or five will gladly be donated to anyone who can solve this!!! Regards, Danny.

  38. Unknown says:

    Because you loved me For all those times you stood by me For all the truth that you made me see For all the joy you brought to my life For all the wrong that you made right For every dream you made come true For all the love I found in you I\’ll be forever thankful baby You\’re the one who held me up Never let me fall You\’re the one who saw me through through it all You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn\’t speak You were my eyes when I couldn\’t see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn\’t reach You gave me faith \’cause you believed I\’m everything I am Because you loved me You gave me wings and made me fly You touched my hand I could touch the sky I lost my faith, you gave it back to me You said no star was out of reach You stood by me and I stood tall I had your love I had it all I\’m grateful for each day you gave me Maybe I don\’t know that much But I know this much is true I was blessed because I was loved by you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn\’t speak You were my eyes when I couldn\’t see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn\’t reach You gave me faith \’cause you believed I\’m everything I am Because you loved me You were always there for me The tender wind that carried me A light in the dark shining your love into my life You\’ve been my inspiration Through the lies you were the truth My world is a better place because of you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn\’t speak You were my eyes when I couldn\’t see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn\’t reach You gave me faith \’cause you believed I\’m everything I am Because you loved me You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn\’t speak You were my eyes when I couldn\’t see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn\’t reach You gave me faith \’cause you believed I\’m everything I am Because you loved me I\’m everything I am Because you loved me

  42. Serendipity Goddess says:

    In the previous version of Messenger, my contacts\’ display pictures displayed as large images beside their names in the contacts list. Now, all I see are tiny Messenger men beside each contact\’s name. I tried modifying the show contact\’s display pictures settings in Options but no luck. Any solutions? E-mail me at "srndpty.gddss at comcast . net"  

  43. Samantha says:

    a couple of days ago i installed the Windows Live Messenger and it was great…but then a couple days ago i tried to sign in a the window automatically closed as soon as i pressed sign in. it was still open on my task toolbar and when i went to click on it, it disapears. i signed into windows messenger and it said i was NOT connected to .NET Messenger Service…and then it gave me an option to RETRY, so i did and it signed me in…so i again tried to sign into my Windows Live Messenger and it still closed then disapeared. I allowed my firewalls to have Windoes Live Messenger 8 as an exception…and its still not working. i reinstalled it and it still didnt work and it gave me an option to Repair it when i reinstalled it again. So when i repaired it and restarted my computer it still kept closing as soon as i press sign in. so i opend the sign in window (didnt sign in) went to tools, properties, under the connection tab, and it said i was not connected to .NET services but i am connected to the internet with a wired connection…then it closed. i had to open it a bunch of times inorder to read the sentence because it kept closing on me. wheni clicked on Service Status it said that i was connected to .NET Messenger Service…then y wont it let me sign in… i went through all of my security settings, deleted all the extra files and cookies…and my internet is running faster but my messenger still isnt working. I changed my password and everything that somesites have suggested…but nothing is working.  Do you have any idea what i could do to fix it?

  50. Natalie says:

    Hi, I am having difficulties signing into Windows Live Messenger.  It continously keeps telling me it has encountered a problem and now I cant sign in at all.  This is becoming a problem adn I would like help please.  Thanks Natalie

  51. BRANDI says:

    how do I get around my firewall?  I can\’t access Messenger Live since last week?
     

  52. Matthew says:

    A problem I seem to be having that I can\’t find any other reference on is that when a large incoming message is received while I\’m chatting on Windows Live Messenger (a lot of text in one message, to be precise), my computer freezes for upwards of thirty seconds to a minute. Anyone have ideas why this happens?

  53. Unknown says:

    Windows Live Messanger keeps telling me it as encountered a problem and needs to close.  I send the error report but this is getting really annoying.  It will do this anywhere from 1 to 5 times during an 8 hour work day.  Need help.

  54. Rita says:

    What does Host File Error in Troubleshooting mean?  how do i fix it?

  55. Dimitri says:

    I\’m getting the same problem as DeRoQuE where I can\’t add new contacts.
     
    Any help?

  56. Unknown says:

    games function doesn\’t work on Version 8, i\’ve downloaded the active X control, i have restarted my computer, i have updated my macromedia flash player, my girlfriends messenger is working why won\’t mine!!?? I want to play a game with my girlfriend online!

  57. Jodi says:

    my windows live messenger just suddenly stopped working a week ago, it wont allow me to sign, someone please help!

  58. Nepheline says:

    I am experiencing the same issue as Koshechka where I can sign into account "X" but when I exit and try to log in with account "Y", Messenger just sits there "signing in" for ages (I left it there for 15 minutes before giving up and closing!).
     
    No error codes or crashes .. has anyone got any ideas or know others who are reporting this?  A friend contacted me yesterday to report this same incident too …

  59. Javier says:

    Ok half the time i cant log in with my main account. When i can i cant add any new contacts says they arent on my allow list. So i add them. Then a link to add to my contact list appears.. I click link nothing.. so i click it again… nothing. Great i cant add any new contacts. This is a great upgrade.. /uninstall. Oh wait no i cant cause you wont let me use a differnt version now. WTF is going on microsoft. Are you trying to get is all to quit using MSN and switch to the compition?

  60. Unknown says:

    Well if their planning on using it with Vista they had better get their butts in gear.  Parental Controls arent supported with the new release, and you would think they would have had this figured out already!!!!!!
     
    No Plannning

    Live Messenger always freezes up a few seconds after I load it.  I always have to end task on it.  I have XP SP2 with all updates and IE7.  I\’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling the latest version with the same results.

    Hi…I have a big question…MSN live messenger gives me this message "Your computer does not support sharing folder….." and it\’s frustrating! I am sure alot of ppl have similar problems?  Please email me the solution to kenetic2003@hotmail.com thanks!

    I have been trying to access my account ALL day, and for some reason I can access account "B", but not account "A\’ which is the one I commonly use! My sister can log in to her Messenger account too!
    I can access my account\’s "A" e-mail account through my browser, but not log in to Live Messenger… I\’m REALLY disappointed of this service… Instead of improvement, it has only brought frustration!

    Yes I agree latley windows live messenger is becomming more of a nusence then a conveinece, i have regularely kept my messenger up to date and from the moment i got live msg i had problems i have had to dowload seperate dsl files, and delete my cache files all to send a few msgs, i feel that yes its really cool to have these new features but at the same time its becomming annoying when you really dont know when you will be able to sign in without some sort of error code popping up, such as now and now i cant even get it to pop up the error code to fix the problem. Yeh and another thing the trogan.exe that came through to many people was crazy i got it too opened it by accident on my crappy pc, it was easily fixable if you have a good firewall to help stop it and system restore although some people i know dont even have a c drive now. Which leads to my over all opinion i think that the creators of the software is great its just the program istelf is becomming unreliable, and i hope that soon a competator comes out with something better and more reliable maybe then they will take more time and care into there prgramming, the sign in problems is becomming insane theres almost no point in having an IM if you cant sign in, there should eithor be some type of new patch system to fix these errors or an newer version the same but without so many problems, or else many people will soon be starting to look for newer more reliable IM services. oh yeh and i downloaded the new live to see if it actually would fix my problem… yeh that doesnt work eithor.

    Not 2 sure about msn these days seems to be lots of issues. Just the other day I got a link from my mate which said something on the lines see a pic of you and surely enough after trusting this person for such a long time didnt realise it was a link trogan. exe of some sort. Once you click on the link it automatically grabs your msn contact and forwards the link to your friends,as you sign in bingo you have same msg without you knowning this, how rude…reformat is not fun.
    Oh the other problem I just got a few mins ago was trying to accept a video chat with my mate and next min you know it rebooted my machine and gave me a msg once it was rebooted ( you seem to be having serious issues with explorer) this happend twice in a row… has anyone had these happen to them?…maybe its time to move on from msn and find something more stable and reliable.
