    Hi, I have the Messenger Live Beta and was wondering if there is any way of
    also having MSN messenger 7.5 on the same computer? Because I want to use the
    old file sending system to contacts who don't have the Live Beta.

    Thanks, Alistair.

  2. Greetings Alistair,

    Yes you can. Firstly install MSN Messenger 7.x, then patch it so that you can start multiple
    copies of it (using a patch that allows polygamy, ie. http://www.a-patch.tk). Next, copy the
    Program Files\MSN Messenger folder somewhere else, and then install WLM.

    You then can start WLM and use MSN Messenger 7 (by running the patched version in the other
    folder).
