Yahoo Messenger Error 0xc0150002 and failed to download

Asked By 210 points N/A Posted on -

Hi folks!

I have to reinstall my Windows Vista. That's why I installed everything again. I already saved a copy of all the installation or .exe on my USB stick, so I don't need to download it again and again. After installing, I made an update on all the applications and software that releases new versions.

The only application that I failed to download is my Yahoo Messenger 10. It keeps giving me an error 0xc0150002.  The installation will stop in the middle or sometimes on the level of 45% or less. I have this messenger before reformatting my operating system. And it work perfectly fine. But now, I can't  download and install it again on my system. All the messengers I am using did the installation successfully except for this. I go to Yahoo. com to download from there site. And tried re-installing it again, but I still don't have any luck.

I deleted it and download again and again and repeat the same process. But it does not work. 

Can anyone explain what the possible cause of this?

I don't want to reinstall windows again as it will take a long process. But I need to have yahoo on my PC since this is the only means of communicating with my friends. Please help.

YahooMessenger.exe – Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0x0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application. 
Thank you.
