    Full suite can be downloaded from here. Or just the Live Messenger from here.

    Hope that helped :)

    NO, that is just the web installer. If I use that it wants to INSTALL it after it downloads to somewhere obscure.
    All I want to do is download it, not install it right now.

    OK, I used the other link and found the mail from it.

    Now I have 2 of the units of the suite - Mail & Messenger.

    I guess I'll try to find them on that site.

    thx

    OK the only one that is not on softpedia is Windows Live Movie Maker.
    that one is the web dnld/install file. "wlsetup-web"
    anyone know where that MSI file can be had.

    Essentials - Windows Live My link says messenger, but this takes you to the full download, from where you can extract the parts you need.

    It's the full offline installer. It's 133MB. The web installer is like 2MB because it's only a stub. It doesn't want to INSTALL after you download it if you done it properly, ie you chose to 'SAVE' rather then 'OPEN'. Then you should save it to somewhere of your choosing instead of somewhere 'obscure'.

    PLEASE FORGIVE ME!

    it says wlsetup-ALL .... not wlsetup-WEB

    I was just so frustrated by seeing "wlsetup" I didn't notice the difference.

    THANK YOU!!!!!

    that "wlsetup-CUSTOM" is the same file as "wlsetup-WEB".

    This takes u to a screen to select the programs u want to INSTALL
    which it does after u hit the only button available INSTALL.

    thx anyway.
