Windows Live: Multiple Accounts


I installed it on the GF's PC... I can sign into my account, her account but I keep getting the error message that the service is temporarily unavailable for the kid's account. The kid's account signs in fine on Windows Messenger and Trillian. Has anyone else had this problem?

Here is what I found:

"Signing in to .NET Messenger Service failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later"
There are two known causes for this problem: the most common one is that the MSN service is down for a while. If you didn't have this problem before just wait a while and see if you can get online again later.
If you keep getting this problem, the cause may be that your email address was blocked from accessing MSN Messenger. You can use this webpage to ask MSN to unblock it. Make sure you refer to the error code you got.
"Signing in to .NET Messenger Service failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."
This error is usually caused by Windows being unable to find a .dll file that is needed by MSN Messenger for security.
To resolve it, you can download this file and run it. It will register all the required .dll files which means Windows can find them.
If you prefer, you can also type the following commands yourself to register the .dll files
First open a command prompt by clicking start, then run. In the "run" screen, type: cmd and press enter. You get a command prompt window now. Now, type the following commands and press enter after each command:
regsvr32 softpub.dll, regsvr32 Wintrust.dll, regsvr32 Initpki.dll, regsvr32 Dssenh.dll, regsvr32 Rsaenh.dll, regsvr32 Gpkcsp.dll, regsvr32 Sccbase.dll, regsvr32 Slbcsp.dll, regsvr32 Mssip32.dll, regsvr32 Cryptdlg.dll.
You can now close the command prompt screen and Messenger should work correctly again.
I hope one of them helps ..


Wow, thanks for the info!
I'll check it out when I get a chance to.

**Edit - Sigh.. tried the above mentioned solutions... still no go.

It is available to the public now Admiral Michael. I'm not sure what it can be then. Sorry .. What I have there is all I could find. You best bet might be to get them a new username ...

You still need to sign up for it, even though it is a public beta. If you don't it won't let you sign in.

"signing in to .NET Messenger Services failed beacuse the service is not responding. The service is not available or you are not connected to the internet."
i am connected to the internet and i have tryed every thing i know of... plz help
It's the server when it does that ... Let it ride out ..
It's been weeks now and it's still happening with her account... odd. Problem resolved by making a new account heh.

I've been getting something new the past few days now... I'm not showing any contacts at all (I have around 30 in my list).
Windows Messenger works fine.
