Have you tried this suggestion made just above your post?if anyone can, please help! the messenger for mac bores me to death
What about running it in a VM using something like VMware or parallels? Seems like a pretty workable solution to me.
Yeah, I've tried it and it also doesn't work for me + it's buggy as hell. I wonder why MS released this "beta" publicly ! It really unusable.FWIW, Messenger:mac 8 beta now supports audio and video calls (although it doesn't seem to work for me!)
Because people kept b*tching about m$ not releasing the beta to the public in March like they said they would, so they released it. Now that it's out, everyone is wondering why it's so buggy. Well, it's stamped BETA for a reason folks.Yeah, I've tried it and it also doesn't work for me + it's buggy as hell. I wonder why MS released this "beta" publicly ! It really unusable.
Im willing to try. What IS VM?I think running VM's is a little too complicated for the OP considering the type of question he's asking. It's kind of over kill too just for a chat program.
The OP can look into Cross Over. It's a way to run windows applications directly on the Mac. It doesn't work with all apps though so you'll have to see if it works with what you want.
Another solution is to look for a Mac app that you'll like instead of trying to run the same windows apps. That is after all why you switched right? Look into Adium. It's a great chat client for Mac that works with many different chat apps (aim, google talk, yahoo etc).
Hi, a VM is short for Virtual Machine. A VM is basically a program that simulates a computer. You can install windows (or linux) on it and use it as a regular computer. Your screen is the window of the VM.Im willing to try. What IS VM?
