I just discovered that the latest version of Windows Live Messenger (WLM) supports multiple instances. That means, we don’t need any third party tool to crack it.
The support for multi-WLM i s not enabled by default, but can be easily turned on and enable with registry hack.
- Go to Start -> Run
- Type regedit and hit enter
- Navigate to the following registry key: KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Live\Messenger (For 64-bit x64 OS, go to following registry branch instead: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Live\Messenger)
- In the right pane, right click on any blank space, select New on context menu, and then click on DWORD Value
- Name the registry value as MultipleInstances with a value 1
- Close Registry Editor
Start as many WLM instances as you wish. Its handy when you want to run an office and personal id at the same time.
