Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Beta
Messenger Beta News and Notes
12-Sep, 2006

Here is the latest essential information you need to help you with your beta testing.


Automatic Update Testing - Within the next two days you will be asked to install a new build of the Messenger 8.1 beta. Although the upgrade is optional, we ask that you install this build and file bugs for any issues that you encounter.

This build will be exactly like the current build you are testing except for one change. With this new build we have turned on special installation logging. This logging will increase the installation time significantly. This is expected for the beta only and we do not need you to file any bugs about the slow install experience.

Bug Bash - look for details on the Connect site and in the newsgroups this week about an upcoming Bug Bash. We encourage all testers to participate and take advantage of this opportunity to win some prizes.

Changes to the Location PSM feature - Those of you have tried out the new Location PSM feature have noticed it is quite buggy. Well, it is back to the drawing board. In an upcoming refresh, this feature will be removed. Therefore, we don't need any more Location PSM bugs. We thank all of you for giving it a try and giving us your feedback.

Crash Issue - Many of you on Vista RC1 continually get a crash with the Messenger 8.1 beta. If you are one of these testers, please read the following information.

Currently there's an issue with Vista, Shockwave and Messenger 8.1 not playing well in the same sandbox so to speak. This has been attributed but not limited to; Send/Receive Winks, Dynamic Display Pictures, Shockwave Ads, & Shockwave in MSN Today.
While we're working diligently on a fix to repair this, below are two temporary workarounds to alleviate the pain some.

WORKAROUND #1:
ISSUE: OS Bug to get ability to add Flash9.ocx to DEP exception list.

Disable DEP for Flash player. Below are steps from Windows Vista Help and Support for "Change Data Execution Prevention settings" topic:

1. Open Control Panel, then open System to view system properties
2. Click Advanced System Settings.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Allow.
3. Under Performance, click Settings.
4. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.

To turn off DEP for an individual program: Select the check box next to the program that you want to turn off DEP for, and then click OK.

If the program is not in the list, click Add. Browse to the Program Files folder, find the executable file for the program (it will have an .exe file extension), and then click Open.

WORKAROUND #2:
In Messenger turn off Today Page window (on by default) and Hide Tabs. To do this workaround you need to temporarily disable DEP (workaround #1), race against this crash while signing in, or directly edit registry for each user signing in because normally you change these settings after signing in.

1. In Today page window's lower left corner click "Do not show this window when starting this service" checkbox, Close Today page window to save setting.
2. Open Tools-Options, click Tabs along left edge, then click "Hide tabs" checkbox below list of tabs. Click OK to save setting.

This should reduce the frequency of crashes that you are seeing.

If you do not wish to receive e-mail messages from Microsoft Connect in the future, please send e-mail to mchelp@microsoft.com with the subject line: "Remove From List." Information on how to contact Microsoft Connect support is found on the Contact Us page within the Microsoft Connect Web site.This is an unmonitored e-mail address, so please do not reply to this message.
