windows live messenger has dissapeared both from connect and the above link doesnt seem to want to install, although the intergtrity seems to be intact,
does anyone else think its been pulled due to a gaping big hole in it?

maybe its jut my system playing up?

That's because you probably installed the spanish one before, a fix for this can be found here:

Quote:
If you are having problems installing Writer, Messenger 8.5 or Mail, in particular if the the Windows Live installer disappearing halfway through (after a Windows Vista UAC prompt if enabled), this may help.

Close all Windows Live applications
Navigate to C:\Program Files\Windows Live and delete the Installer folder
Navigate to C:\ProgramData and delete both Windows Live Installer and WLInstaller directories if you have them.
Reboot (important!)
Reinstall the application you want to install
This may be an issue if you installed the leak Messenger build, as all Windows Live beta applications need to be the same language. See the Windows Live Installer FAQs for more details.

PS: If someone can tell me what the equivalent for step 3 is in Windows XP that'd be great :)

Update: Apparently step 3 for XP is to go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data instead of C:\ProgramData. (Thanks to DN2004 for the heads up)

I always recommend being weary when it comes to installing new betas of anything, however it seems like this version of messenger has quite a few improvements over previous versions so therefore I would recommend giving it a try.
