So it has been two days since the initial release of Windows Live Messenger build 1202. There have been quite a few problems reported regarding compatibility issues with various pieces of software. However, I'm sure that you're enjoying this build as much as we are!

So this is what we do know:

  • Messenger Plus! Live is not compatible 100% with this new build. We've confirmed reports that there is issues with your taskbar not flashing when you receive a message, and this is due to Messenger Plus! Live and the changes that were made to build 1202. So at this point, we are recommending that you un-install Messenger Plus! Live until a compatible version is released. If you're like me and you cannot live without Messenger Plus! Live, then subscribe to our RSS feed and we'll let you know as soon the release is available to everyone.

  • The previous changes to the way the UI is coded has yet again been changed. Making it harder for skinners and programmers to update their pieces of work. However, TheBlasphemer and TheSteve are hard at work cracking the new protection. TB has also posted some information regarding the new protection, with some a snippet of information on how to workaround the new protection. TB has also noted that full documentation on the new workaround will be released to the public as soon as it's ready. Fellow programmers and skinners are working together to make sure the documentation will be easy to use.

  • Yesterday we reported some workarounds for those of you who are experiencing trouble signing into the new build of Windows Live Messenger. After further investigating the issues, we've received confirmation that AVG's Messenger Control is blocking the new build of Windows Live Messenger. We strongly recommend that you disable AVG until a release is made to the program that does not block the new build. We'll let you guys know when and if it is updated!

  • Once again, developer Ahmad is the first to release a patch for build 1202. Please note: This is not the full version of A-Patch. It's been released as a "light" version with 10 options. You can download it here Please be aware that using any type of patch is against Microsoft's Terms of Service.

  • Liveside.net news reporter Sunshine has discovered that the new messenger build now supports polygamy (running more than once instant of messenger at a time), without the need for add-ons. However, in order to enable this feature you need to edit the Windows registry. Instructions on how to do this can be found on Liveside.net.

In other news, Messenger Stuff is now apart of Windows Live Alerts. This is still in works, and we're working out the kinks in the feeds. However, we're in a great position to release it to all of our readers so they can be alerted via messenger when we publish a new article on the website. With this new edition to the website, you can now either Sign up for Windows Live Alerts or subscribe to our RSS feed.

Stay tuned for more information!

I refer to your comment below regarding the new beta messenger live and messenger plus and non flashing task bar.

"Messenger Plus! Live is not compatible 100% with this new build. We've confirmed reports that there is issues with your taskbar not flashing when you receive a message, and this is due to Messenger Plus! Live and the changes that were made to build 1202. So at this point, we are recommending that you un-install Messenger Plus! Live until a compatible version is released. "


You say that the only remedy is to uninstall messenger plus. This is not tottally correct. I have found that if you simply stop tabbed conversations so that they all have their own window it all work ok with messenger plus still installed which is far better than uninstalling it till the fix is released.
