Recommended Posts

I wanted to remove windows messenger from nlite and reinstall it with the updated version from MS website (it's 5.1 or something like that). Does somebody here knows if:

1) windows update will propose me the messenger hotfix even with windows messenger not present

2) remote assistance will still work after installing windows messenger 5.1 after the original windows messenger has been removed with nlite

Thanks in advance.

I think it's safe to remove win messenger for remote assistance :unsure:

don't have any answers for your question exactly but you can totally remove win messenger 4 and 5.1.

Uninstall Windows Messenger 4

Uninstall windows messenger on Run:

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

Uninstall Windows Messenger 5.1

Search for the Windows Messenger 5.1 icon in C:\WINDOWS\Installer

Type in run msiexec /x "the full name of the folder"

ex:

msiexec /x {9D1C26BD-E792-4159-9D16-07EA222D8EF0}

I had this, maybe different for english or other languages.....

No live messenger's remote assistance doesn't work with windows messenger removed. I don't know if removing it and replacing it with messenger 5.1 will still keep remote assistance features that's why I asked.
