    Right Click on the file > properties > compatibilty and check it to run in Windows Xp mode.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question.

    Anyway i understand that windows messenger is not installed on Vista and was wondering if users of windows messenger on xp will still be able to communicate with users of windows live messenger on Vista. Windows live messengers users and windows messenger users can communicate when both are on xp.
