I'm getting the Error Code 8004888d a lot with Windows Vista 64 ultimate.
Right now windows messenger Live is giving me this error when i try to sign
in. Messenger is very slow to accept keyboard inputs when entering my email
address. But it takes my password just fine. Then when i click to sign in I
get the message:
Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the services is
temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.
Error Code 8004888d
I tried several thing suggested by Messenger support, uninstalling, clearing
cache and old files, removing registry entries, starting and stopping
cryptographic services, deleting EDB. log file, deleted the cat2 folder. But
nothing has helped.
Something I have noticed though is that they wanted me to re-register
several .dll files. 4 of the files I do not have on my system. Those are:
None of those files where found on my system. Are they even suppose to be
on a Vista 64 system?
I also tried installing the messenger 8.5 beta. I get a code 0x8009200d
which is described as: Not a cryptographic message or the cryptographic
message is not formatted correctly.
From what I have researched these codes are related. Any help beyond
as neither has helped would be greatly appreciated.
