I don't want MSN Messenger to start

MSN Messenger has the bad habit to start after the installation. But I don't want that. So after searching the forums, I found this

REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "MSN Messenger v7.0.0816" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\Messenger\Messenger.msi /qb" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 2 /D "pskill.exe msnmsgr.exe" /f

That doesn't work for me. I get an error message saying something about pskill (can't remember what)

Is there any other way of making MSN Messenger NOT start after the first installation?

Your error about pskill is its soft is missing : it isn't a default soft from MS.

Integrate its in your UA, and it will work(pref into system32 ).

Hey no offence to the users, but imho, MSN Messenger (and Windows Messenger!) is a very stubborn and annoying piece of s**t. :lol: I have no problem deleting the registry entry on the "run", but it still tries to find a way to recreate the deleted entry! :P

Anyway, I have some suggestions regarding the automatic launch after the installation. You are on the right path, I don't see anything wrong with your PSKill command. Just make sure that you have the PSKill executable in yoiur system32 folder. :) Also, I think you can modify the msi to remove the property that launches the software after installation. :)

@mzar720: taskkill is integrated to windows ... pskill is an external command (and I think it has more options ...)

@all: to install MSN i use "/qb" switch .. and this is my post-reg file.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger]
"FirstTimeUser"=dword:00000000
"AppSettings"=hex:42,02,00,00

it run msn but just in systray .. For don't run anylong , try to configure your msn in the options and exprt AppSettings key ...

Goodbye.

use Taskill which is found normally in windows xp

here is how I Kill Yahoo from starting after Installation:

REG ADD %KEY%\042 /VE /D "Yahoo! Messenger v7.0.247" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\042 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Softwares\Yahoo\ymsgr7us.exe /S" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\042 /V 2 /D "taskkill.exe /F /IM YPager.exe" /f

if you got confused and everything goes wrong, search about 7zip Silent Installer on MSFN, integrated with MSN Plus! just 6 MBs

i'm using it actually
