Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 Plays Well with Windows Vista, Finally

Earlier this month we were relaying the information that Windows Vista users are experiencing problems when attempting to run Yahoo’s instant messaging program, Yahoo Messenger 9.0. It seems that all the kinks have been ironed out and version of the software program should work just fine on Vista powered machines.

Sarah Bacon, Product Manager with Yahoo Messenger comments: “With your help, we were able to implement several bug fixes that have significantly reduced the number of crash reports we are seeing from Windows Vista users.” For this the Yahoo team is very thankful.


At the beginning of the month it was Sarah Bacon that let the world know that Yahoo is aware of the crash-related issues with Yahoo Messenger 9.0 and that it is working hard to find a fix for the problem and let the users run the popular instant messaging program. At the time she put an emphasis on user feedback, on the fact that the issues will be dealt with at a much faster pace if Vista users contact Yahoo and relate to them the Yahoo Messenger 9.0 issues they are experiencing.

Even though the feedback was useful, and Yahoo did indeed come out with v., it seems there are still a few bugs in the software that the Yahoo development team apparently missed. “If after installing this new version you continue to have problems with launching Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 on your Vista PC, please leave us a comment here on the blog, “says Sarah Bacon on the Yahoo Messenger Blog. There are already several posts from Vista users that claim the latest Yahoo Messenger 9.0 version still isn’t working properly; some of them are even complaining that they should have stayed with the relatively bug-free 8.1, but there is no means of downgrading to the earlier software version.
