In the meantime, to get the current version of StuffPlug 3 to work with Windows Live Messenger 8.5, give this thread a read: http://www.stuffplug.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1174

QUOTE(Mess.be @ 7th of June, 2007)
Messer Nitemare reported to us about the following trick by the hand of Stuffplug's creator himself, TB:

1) Launch regedit
2) Create a new registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger
3) In this key, create a string value called "InstallationDirectory" that points to the Windows Live Messenger installation directory (C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger by default)
4) Install Stuffplug

NOTE: "Replace default emoticons" and "Action text" features are not yet compatable with Windows Live Messenger 8.5 Beta.

If the registry hack doesn't work, just uninstall WLM 8.5, install WLM 8.1, install StuffPlug, reinstall WLM 8.5, and then move the msacm32.dll file from %programfiles%\MSN Messenger to %programfiles%\Windows Live\Messenger. Next time you start WLM StuffPlug (with the exception of two features) will be working.

Of course this was mentioned in many other threads around the forum anyway...

Is it possible for someone to upload that .dll by chance? tongue.gif

I don't' want to uninstall it, then I'll have to reinstall all the other addons and whatnot. :S

If not, then ahhh well.

huh.gif If what you're saying is you haven't installed StuffPlug and don't want to hack the registry or uninstall WLM, what will uploading the dll achieve if the program itself isn't installed? StuffPlug is much more than a simple dll in messenger's program files directory you know...

If you have already installed StuffPlug, you just need to move the file to the new directory. But either way StuffPlug's going to need to be installed at some stage - and that isn't going to work by placing a random dll somewhere.

As I already says, please just be patient, and the new Stuffplug will be released when testing is done!

To avoid people just repeatedly asking and ignoring the answers, I shall close this thread.

If you have any further questions about how you get Stuffplug working with 8.5 as a temporary fix, please use the Search to see all the other threads on it, and if none of those help, then feel free to start your own topic! smile.gif
