To embed MSN messenger, you have to use the COM Interop, and unless you use client-side javascript or vbscript, you cannot include it into the browser. And this could be a very very complicated task.

I suggest you first try to handle it with WinForms, and see how it works.

So maybe it's better to just embed it in an HTML page instead?

You may try to do one thing.. Go to the http://webmessenger.msn.com/ and see the source of the file, and find out how it opens the WebMessenger..
You may be able to embed such code in your page

Thanks, armoghan--wow, that's really amazing the way it's done at http://webmessenger.msn.com/
It doesn't even seem like it's in a browser--but it is!  I'd like to figure out how to embed that in a Table or Frame on one side of my web page...but it seems very complicated & difficult to follow from the generated source code. If you--or anyone else!--can help me out a bit more, to get this working, I'll increase the points to 500; else I'll award the 125 with all my thanks & appreciation for the links.
