Hmmm, not sure why it won't work for you… what do you mean the text file doesn't come up as an option?
Changing the name will work, but the (BETA) still stays on the end of whatever you put in there.May 19, 2005 at 10:40 pm #102459
i did remove the (BETA) tag using a hex editor :pMay 19, 2005 at 10:49 pm #102438NessaParticipantamy_d_g wrote:Hmmm, not sure why it won't work for you… what do you mean the text file doesn't come up as an option?

When i run a search of “ymsgr.ini” only the configuration setting comes up and before when i had 6.0 and i did that, i would get the .txt file.
After getting there open the folder called messenger and scroll all the way down and look for the .txt file called ymsgr
I can't find it the way i did before or any other way i seem to try. So i thought maybe it wouldn't work with this version of messenger, but since other people have got it to work i shall keep trying new ways.May 19, 2005 at 10:56 pm #102460
the best way at the moment is to use a hex editor on YPager.exe and remove the beta tag…. what we really need is a patch (both MSN & AIM has them) that patches certain things like the beta tags, search bar in the IMs/Chats, toolbar buttons on the main messenger window, and polygamy…… Yah!Patch is a good name for one of these programs….it seems to me people dont pay attention to yahoo like they do MSN and AIM….May 20, 2005 at 5:00 am #102463benderMemberforsaken wrote:It keeps crashing on me. Whenever I try to change my status, click on one of the menu buttons, or the menus in the message box…crash. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling…but it's still Beta.
I was having the same exact problem, and I posted a link. Amy, a Yahoo! Advisor asked if i was running Windows Blinds, which I was. You will need to go into WindowsBlinds and do a per application setting exclusion. It's the top check mark for total exclusion. After you do it, you will need to close down and exit Yahoo! Messenger, and sign in again. It should work now!!May 21, 2005 at 7:04 pm #102427DermotParticipant
You can refresh your Buddy list now by highlighting on buddy and pressing F5
lol…dont kno why u want to remove the (beta) tag as all the updates from now till full will put it back…so no point.May 23, 2005 at 12:30 am #102466byroanMember
Anyone know how to fix the problem with clicking links in a chatroom? An IE script error comes up.May 23, 2005 at 2:30 am #102461
wait till yahoo releases a new version soonMay 23, 2005 at 2:54 am #102444miGsMemberbyroan wrote:Anyone know how to fix the problem with clicking links in a chatroom? An IE script error comes up.
byroan, please take time to report to yahoo thru the feedback form the bug/problem you encoutered while using the beta messenger. it will help Yahoo! in correcting the said problem in the next release.May 23, 2005 at 2:03 pm #102428DermotParticipant
There is one way to bypass this.
When you click the link…and get script error..
leave script error box open then click link in room again..
it should open now.

Would anyone know why I can run ymulti gold with no problem but when I try to use the generic polygram I keep getting a ypager.exe error?
The actual error is as follows : File not found or File access error.
It happens on the beta versions and non-beta versions.
I am interested in running the generic because right now ymulti is not working with the new beta yahoo.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it .

Carrie, with yahoo's latest patch a lot of programs are not working. However I know there is a new multi messenger that is specifically designed for 6.0 and 7.0, and works with the newest version of messenger.
You may want to google it ad see if you can find one that is dated after May 11th.
The generic multi's may also not work because of the yahoo patch. Part of the patch was chaging the way yahoo loggs in, which of course would affect any program that you would need to log into.May 24, 2005 at 9:03 pm #102392dreadMember

I am having a probelm that when i close yahoo chat windows i get an error message and then i get booted out and have to restart yahoo messengerMay 26, 2005 at 4:55 pm #102468CuddlesMember
The thing that I don't care for on the new messenger is the search window in the IM/Chat windows.
