What works

Well, some things. "Floating" contact bars, and running the program generally.

What does not

Plus! (this is just a flatout guess) seems incapable of completely integrating itself into MSN so that all of it's controls work. That is, you run the program once (the one time after installing it when MSN Plus starts MSN itself), and things like tabbed windows and various other visual and non-visual elements fail to work or show up. In fact, tabbed windows (the setting anyway) will make chat windows fail to function.


What was not tested

Lots of features because none of them seemed to want to work to any usable degree, other than floating contact bars.

Additional Comments

Once I determine a method by which debugging information can be collected, I will post a HOWTO. The problem is that Plus doesn't seem to add any extra fixme's or anything at a normal level when running MSN, and I'm not sure if starting MSN Plus manually from a terminal would help. I'll find a way...

HowTo / Notes


if you intend to use this, please, only use it for testing purposes. It only functions one time and that is the one time after installing it. It is NOT fit for daily use on Wine, nor is it functional to any useful degree.

 This is based off of testing using MSN Messenger 7.0.
