this is what i get when i tried to download msn

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

[font=Arial, Helvetica, Geneva, SunSans-Regular, sans-serif]Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<customErrors mode="Off"/>
Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

looks serious

i need my messenger to talk to the workers in the office.

MSN messenger Service Experiencing Outages
Posted by Tom Warren on 08 Feb 2005 - 05:49 | 17 comments Forums

For the second time in two weeks, the MSN Messenger Service is experiencing worldwide sporadic problems.

Some users are still connected but many have been forced off theMessenger Service. MSN's status page which provides updates tocustomers about any service problems is currently experiencing "Serveris too busy" errors and ASP errors.

On the 23rd of January the MSN Messenger Service was down for around 5 hours before service was restored.

An MSN Spokesperson confirmed the following last time "The MSNMessenger service experienced a hardware issue that resulted in adisruption of service for some customers this weekend. We identifiedthe issue and worked to resolve it as quickly as possible. We apologizeto any customers who were inconvenienced."

It's possible that this could be the issue again and we are awaitingMicrosoft's response to this. Meanwhile a Neowin member, Dom, believeshe knows the true reason as to why MSN Messenger is down..."I haveofficial word of why MSN is down, one of the cleaners unplugged theplug to the 4 way which has the 2 MSN Messenger servers and the 2routers on it so she could hoover the server room". You never know huh

the formatting of bunched words is a forum bug i believe
