Hi there.

I just recently installed Windows Vista Beta 1 [5112]

However upon installing MSN Messenger 7.5, I have found that i am unable to connect, with the following error, which is in the pic i have included.

Could anybody help me out with this issue?

Many Thanks

If you are still having that problem, get MSN Messenger to trouble shoot it

i tried changin things like MTU as i on aol and got a router i just cant see why it wouldnt let me connect as i have seen screenshots of vista where people have actually been able to sign in.

i ran the troubleshooter and it seemed ok.

I do not have this trouble with MSN when i use Windows Xp.

So could that mean the copy i downloaded was not complete ?

Could be that it is a Beta, but I'm not 100% sure, I have PMed a Trusted Tech, someone should be here soon.

try downloading MSn again and re-installing it.
That's my first option.
