Windows Live Messenger is an instant messaging application developed and marketed by Microsoft. The program is available with the Microsoft Essentials package, but you can also download and install it separately also. Live messenger can be used for making voice or video calls, send messages to friends or to play games online. Even though the program is not available in the market now, as Microsoft has merged it with the Skype program, many people still prefer using the program. However, for installing the program, you need to have some specific system requirements.
According to the details shown in the Windows Live chat support website, the program will work fine with all Windows operating system versions. The program works well with the Windows XP operating system; however only with the Service Pack 2 with a 32-bit version. But, the program will work fine with all versions of Windows Vista, Window 7 and even with Windows Server 2008. If you are not sure which operating system you are using, right click on the My Computer icon and select the Properties tab found in the context menu. The system will show you which operating system version you are using in the Properties dialog box that appears on the screen.
If you are using a Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system, make sure that you do have at least 1GHz processor speed for running the Windows Live Messenger application. However if you are using Windows XP operated device, you need to have only a 800MHZ processor.
Memory and Hard Drive
RAM is an important factor and you need a minimum of 512 MB RAM for running the application in Windows 7 and Vista; only 128 MB RAM for running in Windows XP. However, for Windows XP, we recommend that you use at least 256 MB or more for better performance. Windows Live chat support advises that you need to have a minimum of 66.9MB of free space on your hard disk for installing Windows Live Messenger. These details could also be found using the same technique we used to find the processor speed, as these details too are displayed in the Properties dialog box.
