I recently installed MSN messanger. When i go to use the handwriting feature, it gives me an error that says; "To use the Handwrite feature, you may need to install or update software. For details on enabling or hiding the Handwrite feature, click help." What help suggests is completely useless(i.e. make sure you have windows xp) so i thought maybe you guys could help. Any ideas?
thanks

You need to download and install Microsoft Journal Viewer to enable the handwriting tab.

See the link for more details:

I installed what mrwaqar stated above quite a while ago but, me thinking it would work, still had some problems - for some strange reason. So today, I installed the new messenger, Windows Live Messenger, from http://messenger.msn.com. You will find it is much better and is actually the official/finished version of the new MSN (no BETA version or unofficial).

It's quite good and I'd recommend that you download it.

Hope this helps - GL
