    well i just downloaded MSN Messenger 6.0 beta, i run the exe file and then this window pops up saing

    MSN Messenger setup has failed with error code:'1601'. Please go to the MSN Messenger web site and download the software from there.

    A '1601' error means "You are trying to install an insecure and buggy program. Please try installing a better IM".

    if youre trying to install the public preview that was released a couple days ago, make sure you have the right one for your operating system.
