While we all wait for Windows Live Wave 4 series products to be released to the public, here’s a new build of an existing Wave 3 product. Windows Live Messenger (WLM – formerly MSN Messenger), the popular IM client for the Windows platform, has received a new minor update in build 14.0.8117.416. As usual a changelog which should include a complete list of changes in the new build is missing and we are left guessing what’s new – according to an article on Softpedia this update is only bugfixes. Note that we have linked to the full standalone, offline setup of the program as opposed to the over the web installer that Microsoft provides by default.

The offline installer will be useful for people who have multiple computers, limited bandwidth internet connections, unstable internet connections etc. The idea is to download the entire setup file to hard disk and then re-use the setup to install on any number of computers whenever, wherever you like.

That being said, the installer contains full installations for ALL (not just WLM) Windows Live apps including Mail, Writer, Movie Maker and so on. The file size is 135mb. If you find the file size to be too large – you can download the regular, online version of WLM setup to get the newest build as well.

    I miss the days of "mess with msn messenger" patches from mess.be :(

    There's so much stuff I'd like to hide/remove from WLM. I don't suppose anyone knows of anything similar for Windows Live Messenger?
