WLM Error Code: 8e5e05f6

Omnia sunt Communia

Recommended Posts

Omnia sunt Communia

I've been getting the same error code for several days now; preventing me from signing on to Windows Live Messenger. I've follow every step-by-step guide on Google though none of them seem to work. Half of the time the files they keep telling me to remove don't exist in the first place.


I'm at my wit's end about this; I don't want to have to create a new account because I just made this one the other month. What other options do I have?


I'm operating Windows XP with WLM 8.5; if that helps.

That link deals with Vista; whereas I use Windows XP. I tried a similar link which explains the same situation for my operating system - but half of the files I'm asked to remove don't exist.

Not too sure...


Got this from Google but you probably already seen it.




Delete the cache files for Messenger. Follow the steps below based on which version of Messenger you are using:


2.a. For MSN Messenger:

2.a.i. If you are running Windows XP or Windows 2000 click Start, click Run, type cmd , and then click OK to open the command window.

2.a.ii. If you are running Windows 98 or Windows ME, click Start, click Run, type command , and then click OK.

2.a.iii. At the command prompt, type the following commands. After each command line, press ENTER:


cd %appdata%\microsoft

cd "msn messenger"

del /s listcache.dat


2.b. For Windows Live Messenger:


2.b.i. For Windows XP

•Right click on the Start button and then click Explore to open Windows Explorer. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. Click the View tab. In the Advanced settings list, select Show hidden files and folders under Hidden Files and Folders. Click to clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box . Click OK to close the Folder Options window.

•Delete the Contacts Cache folder. To do so, right-click Start, and then click Explore to open the Windows Explorer window. In the Windows Explorer window, locate the folders below and delete all the files and folders inside them

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows logon name \Contacts\ Your Messenger e-mail address

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows logon name \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts\ Your Messenger email address


►Note: Windows Logon name is the logon name that you use to sign in to windows. Your Messenger email address is the address that you use to sign in to Messenger.

I've tried that; the Contacts folder doesn't exist and there is no folder matching my e-mail address in the Windows Live Contacts folder. sad.gif
