You can look here, but I would think there's no guarantee old versions will work because msn probably changes their protocols for connecting, etc., with newer versions.

See if you can convince your daughter to upgrade to Windows XP Home just so she can keep up to date with the rest of the world :thumbsup: . As you know Microsoft have stopped support for Windows 2k and below.

Her computer system can't support XP, other wise I would have already installed it.

While I was looking at your issue ,Icame across MSN Web Messenger. Not sure if it'll work for you and I never tried it,but you can get a look here.
What is the difference between Web Messenger and Messenger?
MSN Messenger is a fully featured instant messaging program that you install on your own computer or one you have permission to install on. MSN Web Messenger enables you to quickly and easily use basic instant messaging features on a web browser on any computer without installing any software

Shouldn't be any reason Win2k can't run the recent copy of MSN Msgr.
I doubt you'd even have to have the latest updates for 2k for it to install properly.

I would have to agree. Would you mind listing the specs on your daughter's computer (processor, RAM, Available hard drive space)?

I could be wrong here but I thought version 7 was the last compatable for Win2K. Version 8 only runs on XP and Vista, according to MS.
