Solved: MSN messenger won't install. Error code 0x80280007 Help?
Ok, i recently un installed MSN messenger. Now when I try to re install the latest version (not the beta) it says i already have the latest version installed. Though, I removed the program completely, there isn't a trace of it on my laptop. This is the error I get.

OnCatalogueResult: 0x80280007

Help please! I operate on Vista.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save the installer file: wlsetup-custom.exe

Close all open windows first, then double-click the saved installer file to run it.

Once it finishes scanning your computer, it'll bring up a long list of Windows Live-related programs.

Select only the one named "Windows Live Messenger" or "Messenger".
(Unless you really want them, you don't need most or any of the other programs)

Once the install process is complete, Windows Live Messenger 2009(14.0.8117.416) will be installed.

I have a paid uninstaller program(Your Uninstaller Pro 2010) that I use for uninstalling programs because it removes all the file and registry debris during the uninstall process, which saves a lot of time and hassle manually hunting for all the leftover debris.

You classify yourself as a "Beginner", so I'm assuming that you don't have the computer savvy to manually hunt for and remove all the Windows Live Messenger debris.

It's not something that I can walk you through. A "hands on" with your computer is needed.

Revo Uninstaller is free. You might give it a try.

Re-read my last reply.

I'm getting ready to go off-line, so I'll check back with your thread tomorrow to see how you made out.

Anatolij:

You need to start your own thread.

I use XP and Vista and am not familiar with 7 anyway.
