Hi
I had Windows Live Messenger and I had installed the new beta version that came out 9.0 and I tested it out but I wasn't pleased with some of the functions it had so I tried unistalling it but for some reason it does not show in my Add//Remove Program so I went through my registry and hit Ctrl+F and I deleted everything that had Windows Live name because I wanted to install an older version of Windows Live (8.5) and it would not let me until I unistalled the newest. Anyways after I finished, it would let me now install the "Windows Live Installer" (the first process to install the messenger) and when I installed it I clicked on the link where it says "Start Messenger" which it would not do anything so I installed a really older version of messenger (5.1) and had a friend send me the 8.5 version, messenger.exe. So when I clicked it, it gave me an error that I did not have the msncore.dll so I downloaded the dll and sent it to the system folder and now when I click on the exe it throws me this error that I can't seem to find a solution. If anyone could help me out with it:

msnmsgr.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point ?GetTextSize@WLEditT@@IAE?AUtagSIZE@@HHPAUHDC__@@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library MSNcore.dll

Thanks


PS I tried installing 9.0 beta again and it won't let me either. Im currently on crappy 5.1.

Found this:

Itís not that difficult to remove the pesky little pile-on of a software: MSN Messenger!

Let us keep it simple. First, make sure you have exited MSN messenger and unsinstalled any MSN Messenger related entry from Control Panel (START ó > CONTROL PANEL ó > ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS).

Then, START ó > RUN the following command:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

Done. That should remove it. If it doesnít, check some more round-about and cumbersome ways from Microsoft that involve the Windows registry.
