My problem is that when I try to reinstall MSN Messenger from the self-extracting .exe file downloaded from the MSN website, I get an error box popping up saying "MSN Messenger failed to install. Please go to the MSN Messenger website and download the software from there."
I have downloaded the latest Win98 version of Messenger twice to to success. I managed to find a 6.2 version for Win98 online that I tried and I ended up getting the same error. I still have the .exe for the 2000 version I had as well.
I can't reinstall 2000 because I don't have the CD for it. I only have the 98SE CD. That makes it tough to uninstall the version of Messenger I currently have because it doesn't show up in the Add/Remove Programs wizard.
Any help or tips? I can live without Messenger, but I'd rather that I get the problem sorted out. Thanks.
