Ok, not really a question or problem, just a solution, so people can find it when searching over the Internet =D
If you are still using Windows Live Messenger Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8089.726) and you get this popup everytime you login:
"A newer version is available. You must install the newer version in order to continue. Would you like to do this now ?"
But you still want to keep using this version because newest is not always the best then:
1. Download and run Resource Hacker
2. Make a copy of
-C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe (just in case)
3. Use Resource Hacker to edit msnmsgr.exe
4. On the left pane, Navigate to Version Info -> 1 -> 1033
5. On the right pane below, replace
VALUE "FileVersion", "14.0.8089.726" with
VALUE "FileVersion", "15.4.3502.922"
VALUE "ProductVersion", "14.0.8089.726" with
VALUE "ProductVersion", "15.4.3502.922"
6. Push the "Compile Script" button
7. Save (Ctrl+S) and Exit
Open Messenger and login, popup gone!
Make sure NOT to edit these values at the begining of the script !!!
As several WLM extensions such as Messenger Plus! will fail to load if they do not detect the correct version.
Remember, replace only the DOT separated numbers and DO NOT replace the COMMA separated values o.-

May this be a Bless to many.
