Many of you will have several WLIDs, and want to sign into Messenger with more than one of them. Until now you had to seek refuge in a patch or add-on to be able to do so. Not anymore! Microsoftís John Weisenfeld just shared a little trick with me to enable this, which Iím going to share with you.

The trick involves registry editing, so please follow these steps very carefully:

1. Start regedit (admin)
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Live
3. Right click Messenger and create a new DWORD called MultipleInstances
4. Right click the newly added registry key and choose Modify
5. Set the Value data to 1
6. Close regedit

All done! Now you can launch Windows Live Messenger as many times as you want, and sign in with as many WLIDs you want, on one computer. Just donít try to sign in with the same WLID more than once on one computer or it will throw error 80071392 at you!

Enjoy!

I can confirm that this does indeed work. But always remember to be very careful when editing the registry, make a backup if you feel safer.

Has polygram always involved editing the registry? I thought it was a reshack on msgres.dll

Nope its normally done via patching the msnmsgr.exe file msn_happy.gif

or done within memory (like plus/jrnz loader does)
