    I have downloaded 8.0 Beta and have noticed that only I can log onto the
    account. If other in my family want to log onto it they get a message
    saying they are not registered to do so.

    I have sent a invite to one of my kids so they can log on. Do I have to
    do this for each of my kids or is there a easier way to do this?

  2. Greetings Phil,

    I'm afraid there is no easier way.

    Well, there is a way to have MSN Messenger aswell as Windows Live Messenger
    You can just unistall WLMessenger, and then, download MSN Messenger, and then go to your hard drive, the one with XP on
    it, then go to Program Files, and edit the MSN Messenger folder to lets say,
    MSN Messenger 7.5, and then go to and download A-Patch and
    apply the Polygamy! Then you can install WLMessenger! So you and the people
    with invites can go on WLM, and the people without invites can go on MSN
    Messenger 7.5!
    But if they want WLM aswell, theres plenty of places to find them!

    Happy Testing!
