Hi Folks,
This is my first post.

Thanks to matthuffy I've been able to aquire many winks.
ALL HAIL Matthuffy !!


Through my browsing I was able to find a program that backs up your winks to MCO files. I just have to share this link.

Software for the backup and installation of Moods, Winks, Emoticons, Backgrounds and User Tiles from Microsoft MSN Messenger 7.

Follow the link download and install the application and you're on your way.

MSN BackUp V1.1.5

Happy backing up.



Share the wealth. :tazz:

i would suggest this one also, not saying it is better just saying that you have an option. Infact i would say that this one is worse as it takes longer but has the advantage of not having that spy ware that is in the other and is only 70kb instead of 3.5mb
but i am always suspicious when a website clearly claims that they do not have spy ware ;) hiding something or what ;)


this one will look as if it has frozen, when it has not. it just takes about 15 min to back up as it is a small small program :tazz: but whjat the [bleep]?

Hello everybody,
this is my first post.

I'm the creator of MSNBackUp and I'll thanks CaribChief for his post.

I write only for explain to Matthuffy why my software was over 3 mb and why it seems locked.

I use many control for the preview and so I decided to make a setup wizard; in fact the exe is "only" 320 KB. I decided to make this because I'd like to know what Winks I install ;-)

For the sleep... there aren't no spyware... ;-) The reason is that the first time it make in the temp user a folder in which it uncompress all winks for make the preview faster... I know... I should put a progress bar... the next release i'll do it :-)

Thanks to everybody!

Hey, great work man! trust me i was not knocking your work, i think it is great, as i said in my last post. the file i added is not as good but still does the job (although takes a life time to complete ;) ) I hope that you can reduce the size somewhat as then this could be a great program. I suggest that we could work on this together including the installer in your program, therefore giving, install and backup options all in one (unless you have already done that).

i am also working on my own custom winks and DDPs, still got a few glitches but should have solved them soon (i hope before MSN change things again :tazz: )

hey Baisoft,
teaming up with matthuffy to include the installer sounds great.

Hi matthuffy,

Like I write on my website I just issued the source code of MSNBackup on planet source code for sharing it with other developers (with you too obviously ;-)).

If you didn't found the source on that site please tell me and I send you by email... I'd like the idea of make an installer with autoupdate... Have you just realized something about it?

For everybody... Have you some ideas / suggestions of new functions for the next release?

Thanks.
Leonardo

PS: If someone go on planetsourcecode for download the source please vote me :-)
