How can I fix windows live messenger will not open because its side by side configuration is incorrect

whenever I open messenger that a box appears saying that "the application failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Check the log of events applications for more details. »

Take a look at this:

Messenger - side by side configuration error

Start button > Search box, type regedit > C: key > (uac prompt) >

expand (click the pointer before) HKEY_CURRENT_USER >
expandSoftware >
expandMicrosoft >
expandMSNMessenger >
Expand PerPassportSettings > under PerPassportSettings, find 2 folders with a series of numbers > delete the two folders including their subfolders > window regedit.
Restart the Messenger.

If the above does not help, please repost in Windows Live Solution center - forum Messenger - son of Messenger section.

    The ability to rotate the screen image is a characteristic of your video
    card, to help work with instructors who turn to the portrait
    orientation. Almost certainly you accidentally pressed Ctrl-Alt, and
    an arrow key.

    Rotate using these keys.

  • How can I stop Windows Live Messenger issuing alerts every minutes, hours and days of the year? I don't use it.

    I do not use Windows Live Messenger, but he insists on the display of alerts telling me to connect. Why it does this and how can I stop without causing problems in other areas? I know nothing about it except that the people who try to contact me (I guess) can do it without going through channels such as email or telephone.

    I assume you have Windows Live Messenger, because you have installed the Windows Live Essentials.
    If so, a brief explanation...
    Windows Live Essentials includes some programs that can be installed or NOT, must be installed. You can choose whoever you want.

    Now, you have 2 options...

    1. you can disable. He will remain in the system but inactive.

    2. you can purely and simply uninstall it, and it will be out of the system.

  • How can I stop Windows Live Messenger open at startup?

    Windows Live Messenger opens whenever I start my laptop, and it does not to her PIN on the bar of.
    Short of uninstalling this program (if that is even possible), how can I stop to open at startup and it detach all the time in the taskbar?  Thanks for your help.

    Hello

    I can help you to stop Live Messenger from running at startup but don't know why it won't let you it detach from the task bar. It should leave you with the right button and choose "unpin this program from the taskbar".
    On the login screen when messenger starts first, click Help on the right with the (?) and in the menu on the button, put a check mark next to "show the menu bar.
    OK - now you can access the menus at the top of the window. Go to tools-> Options.
    In the window that appears, click "sign in" on the list on the left and uncheck the box to the top right ("automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on Windows ')
    Next time you reboot, Live Messenger doesn't have to load at startup.
    It may be useful to uninstall and download again to see if there is a updated version that works better.
    Hope this will help

    WLM signs component snap perfectly when the Connect button is used, but simply refuses to connect when the computer starts.
