Software :: Windows Live Messenger Alternative For Mac
Dec 5, 2007
I am about to buy my first apple mac. Its am imac 20". I currently have a dell windows laptop and use windows live messenger frequently. i need a instant messing program that allows me to talk to my hotmail and yahoo friends. It would be a huge benifit it it also has video support.
I've having trouble getting the "webcam" option on "live messenger" on my MAC. There is no option for starting a conversation with a cam and when people request a cam conversation it suggests that i get "window live v7" I've already got this. Do I need a separate webcam instead of the built-in one i have on my laptop?
I was able to get into hotmail earlier today. Later, when I tried to log in to hotmail later, it wouldn't work. With my main account, it doesn't do anything except just go back to the screen to enter my password. When I try my other account, it gets to a screen that says I don't have a windows live inbox (wtf). It doesn't appear isolated to my computer, as I tried my roommates computer, and his computer just kind did nothing but go to a blank screen when I enter my password.
Does anyone know how I can use Windows Live Mail on my Apple Mail application? I have tried following some guides but it seems to have gone wrong. I would like a simple step by step guide in how to do this please, as in what the incoming and outgoing servers will be etc etc?
I have Windows 7 64-bit on my MacBook Pro. I have Windows Live Mail installed. When I sync iTunes to my iPhone 4, under the Info tab it says "No supported application can be found" for the Calendar and Mail sections even though I have Windows Live Mail and it has a calendar in it.
i'm helping my mom to move all her mails that she saved on her ibm laptop to the old mbp that i passed on to her.... is there a way i can completely dub all the e-mails that are downloaded and the contact lists to mac's entourage? It would be good if someone can provide me instructions from 0 - 10 starting with the windows side
i decided to try out windows 7 through bootcamp and I have gotten some of things im used to on os x. but im missing something like bowtie or coversutra. anything close to that on Win7? i just want to be able to change songs outside of iTunes using a key stroke.
How would i go about getting the windows versions on yahoo messenger and msn on my macbook. I installed the windows version Yahoo messenger through crossover. It downloaded and installed fine but its really buggy and i cant start conversations and when i leave the mouse over contacts names instead of showing details it shows just black, and more buggy stuff. And i couldnt install windows version of msn at all.
Prefer the obvious q's appear likeWhy not use mac versions of both the software ?They complety suck i hate them
Boot camp ? I dont want to use windows but i want the windows versions of programs
I might try download a portable .exe of Both of the messengers and try them through crossover since the two .exe installers of the messengers i got were web based installers.
While iSight works for my MBP, and Skype uses it just fine under XP....Yahoo Messenger says it cannot use it.Anyone have any luck getting it to work? It seems to not support the right resolution, is what I have gathered.
A feature I loved on Win7 was the ability to drag a window to the side and have it resized to fit half the screen. I found for Snow Leopard a software called Cinch that does that but I wanted to know if there was any free or built in alternative to it, I googled and searched the forum
I got a Mac OS X from my brother, we set up the internet on it and everything. I clicked on the messenger, but it won't work. It told me: Sign in to Microsoft Messenger failed because the service is not available or you may not be connected to the Internet.
So I downloaded MSN Messenger for Mac, installed it, tried to sign in but again it said the same thing!!!how do I make it work?!
I am a NYU college student and have my macbook pro (running snow leopard os) connected to the internet via ethernet connection. My mac is sharing internet through it's ethernet connection and my ipod, blackberry, and friend's computers can connect via it's connection. However, the same does not go for my xbox 360. I keep getting a message saying "unable to connect to xbox live because my router can't assign an ip address" I have tried unplugging my internet for 30 seconds but it still doesn't work...neither does a direct ethernet connection.
I am in PA and I have a guy in Chicago who needs to be in on a presentation I'm giving from my personal Mac (I'm bringing it into work to do this because I built it in keynote and I wanted to show off that program in addition to some other Mac features.
I would be able to plug into the network here and have full T1 upstream speeds.
I purchased a WDTV Live HD with the intention to stream multimedia from my Mac.
On my Mac running Snow Leopard, I enabled File Sharing using SMB for my account. However, when I'm on WDTV, in additional to the shared folder I specified, it is able to see everything on my mac - drives, folders, and documents I didn't enable for sharing.
I have a WD TV Live Plus hub on my network that I connect my WD Passport into to run my media but I want to be able to stream my media from my macbook pro on my network. From the MBP, I can see the WD but can't connect to it. I use a Belkin router. I have spoken to WD and they went back and forth.
I run OS X 10.6.4 Snow Leopard and have shared my folders to read and write.
