This doesnt seem to work.

I installed the final today (Dutch language finally).

But the .cache map doesnt exist

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live, that map is made by the installer but it does not put anything in there.

Just make sure to uncheck the box that hides system files in folder options in Windows Explorer. Also, you need to uncheck the one that says Show hidden files and folders.

I will update the tutorial, links to the full installers and a new set of switchless installers will be done tomorrow.

I have that option on show, but i cant see the .cache folder tho, i will install Windows Live Messenger on other pc, to see if the folder is tehre.

edit:

installed on two other pc's, both dont have the .cache folder.

I just want Windows Live Messenger en Windows Live Mail. :)

I cant find this .cache folder anywhere.

I installed the Dutch version on 3 diferent pc's, all dont have the .cache map (system files are not hidden).

I will try to look for the files in my laptop, but tomorrow.

Meanwhile, try looking for the Wave RC (Released in december). That installer surely extracts the files to that .cache folder.

@Raoul90,

thanks for the link..

I'm newbie on this..I read the tutorial.doc but I do't understand on which table I will create these rows?

The following rows needs to be created because they don't exist.

Property Value

ADDBHO No-AddBHO

ADDLINKS AddLinks

SETHOMEPAGE No-SetMyHomePage

ALLOWRHAPSODY No-AllowRhapsody

on property table?

I discovered that on a Windows XP if you remove the old Windows Messenger that came with the OS using:

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

after running 'WLM9 Switchless.exe' you will get an error saying that it is looking for 'wlm.msi' in the temp directory. I have found that if you run the command to remove the old version first then run 'WLM9 Switchless.exe' you will not get the error.

Thanks for the great work you are doing to make our lives easier! :thumbup

i installed "WLM9 Requisites Switchless" and now it works, i hope to have a full working wlm in a few mb´s, but i see its not possible.. (or can it be elajua?)

6 more megabytes :(

(see the uninstaller plz)

I updated the main post to make sure everyone sees that Requisites Switchless needs to be installed as well.

Sadly, there is no way to slim down the size of WLM and its requisites.

On my main computer, i have an uninstall entry, but i will look into this on other computers as soon as i find some time.
