Post by: GravityMX on October 06, 2004, 01:36:32 AM
I just downloaded msn 7.0 and it didnt install properly. Then i rebooted, and it still didnt work. I went back and installed 6.2 and now theres bugs. Does any one else have this trouble?  ???  :-X  >:(
:help:

Please, those who have got msn 7.0 to work, post all your bugs and opinions.
:gossip:

(Official release of msn 7.0 is early next year)

I'd rather wait until it's released officially.  Otherwise MSN Plus won't work with it. XD

I wouldnt know the extra options so far. If you find a screen-shot, then post it on here 8). MSN plus doesnt work at this stage. Some of my friends already have it and say they have found a few annoying bugs. :furious:

Well, I don't know much about it but I have heard that MSN Version 7.0 seriously mucks up certain computer systems. Thats what I have heard from my computer programming associates anyway!

Microsoft released the official Beta version  (http://messenger.msn.com/Beta/Default.aspx) a few days ago. The version did work on my computer :). Personally I would say this version SUX :-X.

what are the extra options with msn 7.0??
-A few new games that you can play
-you can sign-in as "Appear Offline"
-Conversation bumping
-Winks (not emotions)
-Handwriting in conversations

Disadvantages
-Your display pic changes every time u log in
-plus doesnt work yet
-the games don't work on my client  :-\
More to come
-Some how my installation files for 6.2 have been deleted

I would stick with 6.2 until the official version is released.

So they've FINALLY decided to make Winks built-in to the messenger... about time. :P

Sounds really sneaky -- I have no desire for MSN plus and will not install it

Check out how it changes your registry   :furious:

Yeah, I learned the hard way about the spyware (and didn't see the "just say no" choice).  It messed with my computer for about a week and a half before I finally restored my computer.  I wasn't a happy camper during that time.  I'd delete the spyware, and about four restarts later, it'd come back. >:(

Thats why you should always read the 50,000 pages of crap that they release for the licence :P

I did...the second time I was going to download it after I restored my computer.  That's when I decided NOT to download it.
