Windows Live Messenger 8.5 Beta 2 released

Make sure you take the check marks out of all the boxes.

You will have to make sure you take the check marks out of all the boxes again at this screen. Thanks for all the crap Microsoft. The boxes are all checked by default.

Windows Live Messenger 8.5 Beta 2.

It's that time again. The Windows Live Messenger team has released Beta 2. This beta is available in 35 languages. So what's new? Well nothing really noticeable, just bug fixes according to the official Messenger blog. Nevertheless, the build is just really to attract users to the new installer as there is no separate download at the moment.

Here are some facts about the update:

* Windows Live Installer has come under very heavy criticism, all comments tend to be negative, I believe a lot of this comes down to the speed and ease of use of the program.

* It is not compatible with x64 editions of Windows. Unless you try this hack.

If your into Betas and use Messenger you can go here to download it.
