Windows Live Messenger 8.1 (WLM 8.1 beta) compatable version of MSN Plus, Messenger Plus! Live 4.10 has been released.

Download Messenger Plus! Live 4.10 from here.

Changes from the last version:

  • Compatible with the public beta version of Windows Live Messenger 8.1
    (can’t be sure about the final but it should be alright).
  • Supported internal registry settings are now
    documented on
    This gives access to more than 20 different kind of settings to the most
    hardcore Messenger users.
  • Commands are now recognized even when some characters are automatically
    replaced by custom emoticons.
  • The search feature in the sound panel can now display multiple pages and
    does not display "get random sound" entries.
  • Added an internal message to help skinning applications interact with
    Messenger Plus!.
  • Quick texts now always properly parse emoticon codes.
  • Enabled scripts are now displayed first in the preferences panel.
  • Floating contact windows can now be hidden for a couple of seconds when
    clicking with the middle mouse button on them. Useful when you want to
    temporarily access something that’s behind the windows.
  • If Messenger crashes when started, every installed script is disabled as
    a precautionary measure and a message is displayed.
  • Added Arabic language with full right-to-left support. Every window in
    Messenger Plus! is properly mirrored when this language is selected (as long
    as support for RTL languages is installed in your Windows).
  • Fixed: the XML event log file can be corrupted by new external mail
    events depending on the language file Messenger Plus! is using.
  • Fixed: event notifications and sounds don’t work properly with Remote
  • Fixed: the setup displays a system error instead of a user friendly
    error when launched on Windows 2000.
  • Fixed: Messenger may crash the first time a user signs-in after
    installing Messenger Plus! if old external mail settings are imported from
    Messenger Plus! 3.
  • Fixed: no overwrite message is displayed when saving a display picture
    file from the Contact Info window with an existing file name.
  • Fixed: contact names sometimes appear as "1" in the windows of Messenger
    Plus! when Yahoo Interop is activated.
  • Fixed: no more unnecessary extra space character when inserting bbcode
    tags with a keyboard shortcut.
  • Fixed: scripts can’t be imported when the Scripts directory does not
  • Fixed: Quick Icons panel doesn’t display when a parenthesis is typed
    after a carriage return has been inserted in the message.
  • Fixed: receiving multi-line messages with plain-text chat logging turned
    on can freeze Messenger.
  • Fixed: commands don’t work in quick texts that contain smart tags (like
  • Fixed: false name change notifications in the event viewer for Yahoo
    Messenger contacts upon signin.
  • Fixed: on systems with several screens, Messenger Plus! windows that are
    minimised on smaller screens sometimes restore bigger than they should.
  • Fixed: Messenger Plus! can mix-up the settings of different contacts who
    have very similar email addresses.
  • Scripts: added Messenger::CustomEmoticons property to access the custom
    emoticons of the current Messenger users.
  • Scripts: added "Emoticons" and "Emoticon" objects. They are both pretty
    straightforward to use (see documentation).
  • Scripts: an error is now logged in the Script Debugging window when an
    exception is thrown in Interop.Call.
  • Scripts: when importing a script that’s already installed, if some files
    are locked in the script’s directory, Messenger Plus! restarts Messenger to
    unlock the files and complete the installation procedure (can be useful in
    cases where an ActiveX is loaded and refuses to unload when the script is
  • Scripts: added EnterPersonalizedStatus and LeavePersonalizedStatus
    events to notify when the user activates or disables a personalised status.
  • Scripts: added PlusWnd::RegisterMessageNotification. This new function
    can be used by more advanced scripters who want to receive specific messages
    processed by their windows.
  • Scripts: DataBloc:GetAt and DataBloc:SetAt use unsigned values now.
  • Scripts: sending WM_SETTEXT to an interface window changes both the
    caption and the title of the window.
  • Scripts: Interop.GetLastError() now works properly (see documentation).
  • Script: Interop.Call and Interop.Call2 now accept parameters ranging
    from 0x80000000 to 0xFFFFFFFF.
  • Scripts: added a flag to MsgPlus::CreateWnd to allow the creation of RTL
  • Scripts: .NET 2.0 assemblies are now registered properly even when .NET
    1.0 or 1.1 is also installed in the system.
  • Scripts: added ChatWnd::AddContact() to invite contacts to join existing
  • Scripts: a special error is logged in the debug window when Interop.Call
    is used on functions that are not declared as __stdcall. Script developers:
    do NOT ignore these errors, they will cause instabilities and eventually
    crash Messenger in random places.
  • Scripts: creation of a new application called "Interface Tester". It
    allows script developers to test their interface files and preview the
    result as when loaded in Messenger Plus!. It can also validate xml files
    against the interface schema file. The software can be downloaded from a
    link in the new version of the

    Scripting Documentation
  • Several other internal improvements.
