I just bought office 2004. I am having a hard time installing MSN messenger. It keeps saying there are newer versions available. Once I have downloaded them, and the blue bar scrolls across, an icon on my desktop appears that says Messenger511.dmg. WHAT DO I DO NEXT ? Any help is appreciated.

Depends on what Mac OS you are running. If you are using MAc OS 9.2.2 or lower, you cannot use what you've downloaded. The .dmg file extention is a disk image file (installer) that you can only open and run in Mac OS X. MS quit supporting Mac OS 9.2.2 (and lower) a long time ago. Before getting my new Intel iMac, I was using this Mac Messenger instead of Micro$oft's own client because theirs always gave me problems like those described in other posts here.

Mac messenger is typically a better version of the MSN client currently available for Classic Mac's.

There is no Mac Messenger 5.0, unless you're talking about Microsoft's Messenger. In either case, both won't support webcams.

Mac Messenger installed smoothly on 8.6 but I receive the same problem, i.e. class NilObjectException. Auto shut-down alternates between that and Error Type 2. Please help.

Welln what can i say, I MSN Messenger for mac wich works fine for me and using Mac Messenger would be degrading, but as been mentioned for Mac Classic as below Mac OSX than it's indeed a very nice use since there's not much other choice. If you do have Mac OSX this doesn't adds anything, so if that's where you are aiming at I would've said it's better to practice between eachother untill all the bugs are fixed and you got atleast everything what the mac version of MSN messenger can before releasing it. But it's freeware, it's also for below Mac OSX, so it's very nice for what it is. Nice design and goodluck in the future with future versions or projects.
