    I have Vista installed, and can install the Messenger "beta" for Vista, and that will work fine if I am not behind a firewall/proxy, but if I am behind a firewall/proxy, I am not able to connect, despite the connection settings in "Beta" version....

    I tried installing the new 9.0 XP version under Vista, but for some reason it will not install completely, and when trying to run the app, it crashes almost immediately. I have another computer running Vista, and the 9.0 XP version of Yahoo Messenger works with no problems... I've tried downloading from several sites, same error.

    I was finally able to get the 8.1 version (again, for XP) installed properly, and that works with no problems (except I have no friends, but that's a different story!!!)

    Yahoo Help is anything but help... Anyone know why the 9.0 version won't work on my Vista, but will work on another Vista?
