Running MSN Messenger with XP 64 Bit

...Is a nightmare. I have been using Windows Messenger for ages but really getting sick of it so want to get a newer Live Messenger but not compatible with XP 64 Bit. I have found one that is supposed to be but it keeps crashing which is annoying too. Anyone know how to get around this ???

Never had a single problem with Live messenger on x64 myself tbh. Maybe give WML 8.5 (Windows Messenger Lite 8.5) a try - you'll have to google it tho for a download site.

I can`t imagine that something as simple as msn doesn't work even on 64 bit xp.

I'd tend to think something else is giving u the issue like some malware or something. Even part of the OS install being busted.

I agree.

Run a system scan and try getting the beta or WML and see if that works

I have just tryed installing the latest version and it told me that it isnt compatible with 64 bit or Server.

Instead got the previous version and it keeps crashing.

So, can anyone give me some instructions on how to get it working ?
