Today I had chance to install it. Everything else went smooth but I got msnmgr.exe error when I was ‘first time’ starting the Windows Live Messenger.
The error says The program can’t start because wldlog.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix problem.
The error message was only thrown once. But after that every time I tried to login to Messenger it threw error 80040154. The solution link that leads to msxml3.dll fix didn’t help at all for this version nor reinstalling the Windows Live Messenger.
After long day of research, at last I got the solution. It seems the new Windows Live has grouped the wldcore.dll and wldlog.dll (used by Messenger, Contacts and Mail) to a folder c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared
Maybe because I did upgrade install it screwed up things.
The solution was simply copy paste those 2 files wldcore.dll and wldlog.dll from c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared to
c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger
c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Contacts
c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail
Now I can login to Windows Live Messenger and enjoy the whole Windows Live Essentials 2011 products.
Microsoft just unveiled the new Windows Live Essentials and the role it plays in completing the Windows experience. Essentials is a suite of free software and services which includes Messenger, Mail, Writer, Photo Gallery, and Movie Maker as well as Sync and Family Safety.
We all take a lot of photos and videos that we love to share. Windows Live Photo Gallery and Movie Maker now comes with intuitive tools for organizing photos and movies, in addition to providing consumers with the tools to polish and then share their content online. Some of my favorites include:
– Photo Fuse. Allowing you to take the best parts of similar photos and fuse them together into one “perfect” photo
– Retouch. A great new feature which allows you to get rid of blemishes, scratches, bruises and stains on photos in a few clicks
– Precision Video and Audio Editing. Make it so simple for you to find the sweet spot for each video or audio clip
– High-Definition Formats (720p and 1080p). Now you can make your movies look even more polished and professional
Finally, a new tool introduced in the Windows Live Essentials family, Windows Live Sync. With Sync, you can access your files and folders on the web – even if your PC is offline.
Microsoft just gave a sneak peek to the new Window Live Hotmail, representing the next generation in personal email. Practical innovations has been introduced to help people manage the clutter and regain control of their inboxes efficiently and the new features will become available to customers world-wide from mid-2010.
A quick overview of the key updates:
Stay better organized
Todays inboxes are overflowing with mail that most people consider junk, even though it’s mail that’s legitimate. To help keep inboxes clean and organized, the new Hotmail delivers the first and only virtual broom, enabling customers to easily sweep unwanted mail out of their inbox. It also helps cut through clutter with intelligent filters that in a single click will filter the entire inbox to show mail just from contacts, just social network alerts, or just mail from the groups users belong to.
Manage your social networks from your inbox
With the new Hotmail, customers will be able to see rich previews of photos and videos from popular sites like Flickr, YouTube, Hulu and SmugMug, and see the status of tracked packages in real time, inside their emails. They’ll also be able to accept invitations to connect with someone on a social or professional networking site like LinkedIn – all from the convenience of their inboxes.
Increased attachment size
One of the biggest changes to Hotmail is the increased ability to manage and share personal photos and documents. Today, people are sharing over 1.5 billion photos and 350 million Microsoft Office documents per month in Hotmail. Still, the attachment size problem remains, regardless of which mail service people use. The new Hotmail lets’ customers send up 10 GB of attachments (200 attachments each up to 50 MB in size) in a single message, erasing worries of attachment size limits.
