What's This?

This A-Patch version is for windows Live Messenger v14.0.8064.0206 which was released a few days ago. The patch is still in beta and still lacks the full features usually available in A-Patch. The change log states no major changes, only compatibility fixes. Still its the only patch(stable) you can get at the moment.

Added: Compatibility for windows Live Messenger 9 Wave 3 14.0.8064.0206
Removed: Check for update feature

Note: Keep in mind to either restore any backups made by the old a-patch before you update messenger or you might have to uninstall messenger and re-install.

Going a bit off topic Messenger plus live is compatible with the new WLM version so you do not have to change that.
