    I haven't been able to sign into msn for the last week! I keep getting this error message as many other people have too I noticed! I've tried some ideas on this discussion board (scurity certificates checks, etc.), system restore, uninstalling and installing msn, nothing works! I can access msn from other computers, just not from mine. :( Any ideas what to do? Checking hotmail from my computer is fine, I just cannot sign into msn.

Error while installing MSN Messenger 7.5

Postby barcaroller » Thu, 28 Dec 2006 08:49:48 GMT

Whenever I try to install MSN Messenger 7.5, I get the following error 
message:

    "MSN Messenger setup has failed with error code: '1635."

Does anyone know what this means and how I can get rid of it?  Please note 
that I am not interested in installing MSN Messenger Live (i.e v8.0) at the 
moment.  Using Windows XP HE SP2.

Greetings,

Are you using or have used any version of Messenger in the past on this PC?

Yes, I used Windows Messenger 4&5 and then MSN Messenger 5&6&7.  I then 
installed MSN Messenger Live, had some problems with it, and tried to go 
back to MSN Messenger 7.5.  No luck.  Please note that I am able to use 
Windows Messenger 5 at the moment.

How/where do I download a copy of MSN Messenger 7.5 but NOT Messenger Live?
I have never been able to use Windows Live Messenger (version 8). When I 
attempt to login, I just get the spinning buddies for ever and ever.  I have 
tried every fix, including your 'policies' registry update but nothing works. 
I posted my continuing problem on various threads but I never heard back from 
you or anyone beyond that registry update. Tonight, three months after I 
first experienced the problem, I thought I'd give it another go and 
downloaded Messenger Live all over again. Same thing - those buddies have 
been spinning for the last 30 minutes. No error codes or messages, just 
spinning buddies.  Can I get some more 'personal' help on this problem? 
Messenger Live works on my other computer no problem. [For information, when 
I tried the Messenger Live BETA, I had a similar problem, but only when the 
'remember me/remember my password' boxes were checked.]

Now, I have no access to Messenger - I can't login to Live (version 8) and 
can't obtain version 7!

Thanks, this is enormously frustrating.

1.7.5 Install error code '1720'

I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to install messenger 7.5 and I get a 
windows installer script error, followed by a 1603 error.  No anti-spyware of 
any kind is running. Have installed latest copy of Windows Installer 3.1 and 
run Windows Instller clean up tool.  All done.

The text from the event log is as follows 
"Product: MSN Messenger 7.5 -- Error 1720. There is a problem with this

Can anyone shed any light on this, it is very perplexing and annoying.

2.deleting or re-installing Msn Messenger 7.5

I have been trying to delete msn messenger 7.5 and I've been through many of 
the web sites online which tells you how to delete it, I've meddled with the 
registry and I think all the messenger keys and files are deleted but I am 
having trouble removing it out of the add/remove programs. 

And another problem is when I try to re-install, an error message comes up 
with the code 1635. I have no idea what do now, I think I've done everything 
except re-formatting the computer and I don't really want to do that. Is 
there any way I can delete it completely and re-install msn messemger?

4.Lost Ability to Install and Uninstall Msn Messenger 7.5

5.Installing Messenger 7.5

Hello,

 I recently upgraded from version 4.7 to the latest 7.5
 However, the program failed to upgrade my existing messenger program and i 
had two versions installed. this caused a conflict not allowing either to 
work.

 i have successfully removed version 4.7 (all files including the DLL files) 
from the hdd, however, after re-installing,  version 7.5 will still not login 
at all. I assume theres still a conflict in the system somewhere?
 Any help in getting Messenger back online, without a dreaded re-format :) , 
would be much appreciated.

 Cheers,
 Stu
