    I sign in onto Windows Live Messenger and then a pop up comes on the side of
    the screen saying something roughly around you can update windows live
    messenger click here too.
    Something like that, i install it but then it goes.
    There was a problem with this Installation. Windows live suite was not
    installed.

    Code:0x80070643
    Description: Fatal error durig installation.

    no answer.

    for remote assistance, still asking me to upgrade to the lastest version of
    messenger. so still need help...

  5. Hi,

    Glad to hear it. Another point for the MSI version.

  6. Hi Shawn,

    That's sort of another problem entirely.

    What's really going on (and yes, the error is wrong, as is the link) is that Remote
    Assistance on Windows XP requires Windows Messenger to be installed (note, not just
    Windows -Live- Messenger). Live Messenger and Windows Messenger are two separate products.

    That said, just download and install Windows Messenger from the following link. After that,
    you can then use Remote Assistance within Windows Live Messenger:

    Thanks a lot!! It works wonderfully. But where can I get the Windows Live
    Mail also?

    I tried to install the Live suite again and the same error appears! Thanks.

    I had the same problem. The way I fixed it (and it worked) was to go to
    Start>Run, type 'cmd' and then enter each of these one at a time at the
    command prompt (hit 'enter' after each one if needed):

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 atl.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll

    It also fixes an issue where you keep getting messages from the security
    center saying automatic updates are off when the automatic update window says
    they are on.

  14. Greetings,

    The link is still valid and working here, could you be more specific as to "not opening'?

  16. Hi,

    It works fine here and elsewhere. I expect you may be having routing issues.
