[Request] MSN Live Messenger Lite

Post by kaitsevaim » Sat Sep 26, 2009 4:44 pm

Hey! I just thought that it would be nice to have such msn version, that includes communications platform and messenger program ONLY without the other kind of stuff, that i might never need. These components are all .msi files. Is it possible to unite these two .msi files into one working silent .exe and also pre-patch the files using a-patch program? IE remove advertisement, billing info, file sending limit etc. Hope someone has heard of the program... I have tried silent 7zip installer method, but it didnt work with 2 msi files.

I can confirm it, because somehow a acrobat reader silent 7zip installer with two security patches (.msi files) also didnt work. It should of been acrobat reader 9.1.3, but outcome was 9.1.2.

So..anyone..i´m thankful for your thoughts.

It's possible, but I believe more than those two MSIs are necessary.

@5eraph,
Yes indeed, more MSI's are required. WLM needs the MSI's listed below (and in this exact order):

1) crt.msi
2) contacts.msi
3) messenger.msi
4) wllogin.msi
5) richupload.msi

Of course, you can try to merge them, but... MU/WU will not like it.

@kaitsevaim,
You can't compare different setups like that (wlm & reader). Besides, there is a working 9.1.3 Reader out there, I've posted a Lite version of it a while back. ;)

well what you posted is what the Windows Live installer installs

you can remove the wllogin.msi and richupload

and if you don't use a Video call

you can remove crt.msi

If I remember correctly, I've always used beats's list with the addition of the font package. The whole reason for me to repackage WLM is to remove the draconian OS check, which forbids installing on XPx64 even though it works perfectly. :evil:

Well, most of the people I know use WLM with a Live user account. For them, wllogin and richupload are more or the less required. You don't need them if you use another 3rd party (mail) account (like gmail or yahoo). Also, most people I know do use webcams, that's why crt is on the list as well. ;)

@5eraph,
I left out the Segoe font because WLM works fine without it (despite MS claiming otherwise). ;)

I like the way Segoe looks. That's why I keep it. :)

thats exactly what i was talking about. Only contacts.msi and messenger.msi will have to go into that silent installer. I dont need the other and MU/WU can complain, i dont care, although i would rather windows live essentials wouldnt show up.

It's easy to make this yourself. Follow the directions in this post, and replace "Setup=setup.exe -S" in the example with the lines below:
Setup=contacts.msi /qb
Setup=messenger.msi /qb

Hi all,

Is there a tweak to stop WLM pop up asking to install the new version ?

This forced upgrade at each new version is very annoying ...

Thank you.

I'm just thinking to completely remove it or any other suggestion would be nice.

I think only the most recent Messenger.msi is needed.
For an offline system installation I need only Messenger.msi works clean.

Easy to make from the msi a switchless installer, integrate, DONE. ^ ^

A tutorial for an older WLM version exists on MSFN. I haven't tested it against the newest versions.
