Hi,

Windows Live Messenger

Error code: 80040154

Hide details                                                             Retry                       Cancel

This has been happening for the last 3 days. I have reinstalled, and updated messenger but it still gives the same error code.

Any ideas why this is happening. I simply cant understand.

Looking forward to your help.

Hello Davis,

To resolve that issue, you will need to use the following steps:

  • On your computer, click start, and then Run.
  • After that type regedit and then press Enter.
  • You will need to search the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAppID{380689D0-AFAA-47E6-B80E-A33436FE314B}.
  • You will delete it and then reboot your pc and try to log on again, it should work.

Excellent suggestions, guys, and thanks for all of the information.

I want to demonstrate how much I love my friend with a hug or send a birthday cake to a friend with emoticons that are in abundance on Windows Live Messenger.

And because of that, Windows Live Messenger is important to me.

Odom Vemus, your solution helps me understand how I will be able to fix this error. By utilizing your step-by-step system, I am now free from the error, too.

Thanks again for your help, friend.
