    Running MSN Messenger 6.1/XP

    When I try to log in, I get this message:

    "A newer version is available. You must install the newer version in order
    to continue"

    If I click "No" then I can't login.

    I've removed my Messenger account from Control Panels > User Accounts >
    Manage Accounts but still the same problem.

    Don't tell me I "must install the newer version in order to continue."

  2. Greetings Bob,

    I'm afraid I'm going to have to tell you what you don't want to hear --there is no way around
    this, you must install the latest MSN Messenger 6.1 either by clicking "Yes" or downloading
    it from:

    talk about forced updates!

    let's hope this isn't the start of a trend.

    not happy.

    Jonathan
    I have the same problem, however, it is MSN Messenger 6.1
    that I have already (6.1.0155).

    Since it has started asking me to upgrade, it now also
    asks me to upgrade when ever I open Outlook Express. Any
    ideas what has happened?

  5. Hi Emma,

    Actually 6.1.0155 is an "old" version of MSN Messenger 6.1, what's it prompting you (and
    forcing you) to upgrade to is 6.1.0203.

    Assuming you're not using Windows XP, when you start Outlook Express, MSN Messenger should be
    started. This is why you're seeing the upgrade window there. Unfortunately, the only thing
    you can do to log back in is to upgrade.

  6. Hi Bob,

    I'm not quite sure why this has occurred with this release [yet], it's never really been
    forced before, so hopefully it won't happen again.

    Re: login problem - A newer version is available. You must install the newer ver

    Hi:

    Why don't you put a message telling the public about
    this "forced" upgrade?, because If you go to the download
    page of MSN Messenger, It doesn't said anything, so you
    can't understand why if you have the 6.1 version, it asks
    you tu upgrade to a newer version, seeming that the 6.1
    version is the newer (in the FAQ just said about the forced
    upgrade from 4.7 to 6.0, nothing else)

    If you question yourself a little bit more, you may find
    these newsgroups and find the right answer, but not all the
    people wonders themselves so much.

    Bye.

    Ethan
