    i have a windows xp sp 1 as OS with windows messanger 4.7
    i recently tried to upgrade to 6.0 but keep getting the error message saying ''msn messanger has failed with error code '1601'.
    i have downloaded 5.0 of messanger and that doesnt even give an error message, it just doesnt work at all.
    If anybody can help i will be really grateful.

    first of all go to services.msc and see that "Windows Installer" service is stopped.
    now do this...
    * Click Start, and then click Run.
    * In the Open box, type msiexec /unreg, and then click OK.
    * When this process is complete, click Start, and then click Run.
    * In the Open box, type msiexec /regserver, and then click OK.

    now try and reinstall the MSN Messenger.
