Few days back I wrote about Yahoo messenger offline installer. Similar to this even Microsoft provides only web installer of it’s Live messenger. This can be really very painful if you have to install it on multiple computers.
The official Windows installer is small 2.8 MB setup file which then downloads different files. The basic idea behind this web installer is to promote other Microsoft products along with the messenger. So if you are not at all interested in other products you can simply download the offline installer of the latest Microsoft Live messenger from the link given here.
