Download Latest Windows Installer and Windows Live Messenger

by on September 13th, 2009

Recently my PC OS got corrupted during some experimental work related to registry and I had to reinstall the Windows. When I was done I intended to download Windows Live Messenger. I downloaded custom setup which gave me an error that “Latest Windows Installer is required to proceed“. Previously I had posted ‘Windows Live Messenger standalone setup’ which might not be working now. But here is an update related to the ‘Latest Windows Installer’ and custom ‘Windows Live Messenger’ setup with Live components installation options.
