try installing using the unreal tournament 3 method by using orca to remove the os dependency if it is coming up sayign it is unable to install on a server os but make sure you have the downloaded installer and not the web installer or you wont be able to setup the msi

otherwise it just might be one that cant run on server

Addition to Mauller07: to get the .msi files for the installations, you can use the method described at Stealthpuppy Blog. Next you can modify the .msi and install. That should work. Good luck!

Nice work zolee001! :) Now everyone can install all Microsoft Live programs. The WLinstaller.exe just sucks! ;)

Hello,

I tried a number of different MSI's and could not get Live Messenger to install.
My last effort was to copy the Live Messenger files from one active copy of windows onto my local hard drive without installing. If I then ran the EXE and everything worked like a charm!

I hope this helps.

RustiferCH.

PS. Some plugins do not work as they look for the registry entries that don't exist.

Good job FilleMang! Now the installer works great on Windows Server 2008! I'm sure this modified wlsetup-web.exe will get a lot of downloads! ;)
