Windows live messenger installation error

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello all,

When I try to install the Windows live messenger in the computer, I ended up with an error message. For your information I have Windows 8, 64 bit, 8 GB RAM Operating system. I check the installation diskette, for me nothing seems to be an issue. This error means the image or dll is corrupted? Someone could help me to solve this error. Thanks for your help.

This type of error is normal if you’re using wrong version of Windows Live Messenger. If you have installed x64 version of x86 PC, your program won’t run. Download latest Windows Live Messenger.

This DLL file is not by default a package of MSN Messenger. This DLL is a part of Windows. Add-ons place their initializations in this file that makes Messenger load and then their add-on so deleting this file won’t make any harm to your PC. Just go to “C:Progrsn FilesWindows LiveMessenger” and delete “MSIMG32.dll”.
