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.
