Windows Live Messenger Video Call Problem

December 7th, 2009 No comments

I recently encountered a problem with Windows Live Messenger (Version 2009 Build 14.0.8089.726). Whenever I tried to start or accept a video call I got an error message: “Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8100039d)”.

I googled around for a solution. Some people suggested this was caused by McAfee but I don’t have McAfee installed on my computer. Then I found this post on Microsoft users forum. I followed mtseau’s method and disabled VMware network connections VMnet1 and VMnet8. Then I tried video call in Windows Live Messenger and it worked fine.
