Windows 7 messenger no actions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Me: Windows 7 Premium with Windows Live Messenger.

    Friend: Windows XP with MSN Messenger and Windows 7 Home with WLM.

    When Friend is running XP+MSNM, my Win7+WLM shows a whole set of actions like send file, etc.

    When Friend uses the same account on Win7+WLM, I get no actions. We can't exchange files, pictures, or anything. I can't offer remote assistance, and we are having a devil of a time getting remote assistance requests exchanged.

    I've tried local group policy editor, doesn't seem to help. I'm guessing it's something mis-configured on my friend's system, since all that changes is which machine she uses.

  • Hi,


    According to your description, I suggest to perform these tests to troubleshoot the issue:

    1 Login in with Clean Boot

    2 Disable firewall


    If the issue persists, since it related with Windows Live Messenger, I suggest to ask Windows Live Solution Center for further help.


    Thank you for your understanding.
