    I have got Messennger 5.0.0124, I can't connect to it. Should I patch it, where you could then connect into the MSN servers !

    If so, where can I get the patch from ?

    Im not sure about patching this, but there was a version that came out some time ago which had a bug that prevented you from logging on.

    If you REALLY want to go with Beta software which is as you are finding usually more trouble than its worth, then i suggest you have a look at http://msbetas.net/windowsxp/.

    *NOTE to moderators*

    If this is against the rules, sorry, im not sure what your views are on Beta software sites?

    All i said was that there was a leak of the BETA a while ago which prvented you from logging on with messenger due to a bug. The latest version of the Messenger 5 is available at that website.

    This should work and if not i would suggest that this may not be due to a problem with the messenger 5 software as this is the latest build.

    As far as I am aware NO patch is needed to get this version to log on.

    Good Luck
