Version 5.2-5.4 would be much appriciated. 5.5 and 5.6 suck, and 5.0 doesn't allow entry to chat rooms. Thanks in advance.

5.2 and 5.4 were never released. 5.0 and anything below will not work. I tried it but it said to upgrade to a newer version.

If you are looking for older builds of Yahoo Messenger 5.5-5.6, check these links out.

I will update the links from time to time.

Broken Links? Post here.

Tip: If you install Yahoo Messenger 5.5, browse to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger and delete the yupdater.exe to stop messages that ask you to upgrade.

Hi,
I need Yahoo Messenger 5.5 at http://www.yahoo.com for my Y!Tunnel Pro. Since I downloaded the new version which is 5.6, it doesnt let me log on to yahoo ever since i downloaded it unless i exit ytunnel.

Is there a version 5.5? because it worked a while back when i had ytunnel and yahoo messenger. If its a problem you know how to fix it please help, or help me out with a version that will help.
Thanks

You can grab old builds of Yahoo Messenger 5.5 by doing this:

If you want to get Yahoo Messenger 5.5 Build 1228 you would put...
http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yahoo.com/.../ymsgr_1228.exe (http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymsgr/ymsgr_1228.exe)
in your browser address bar, hit enter and you're away
for 5.5 Build 1246 you'd put in
http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yahoo.com/.../ymsgr_1246.exe (http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymsgr/ymsgr_1246.exe)

Please use the search feature on the board for other topics relating to Yahoo! Messenger. There have been many duplicates of the same topics requesting the same program.

Here is a topic (http://www.oldversion.com/talk/index.php?act=ST&f=3&t=2679) I posted that has previous builds of Yahoo! 5.6 and 5.5.

And lastly, you did not read the pinned topic that shows how to request and application.

These little steps you take can greatly improve the chances of your request being fulfilled, and saves time for those who seek files. Since the first thing we must do is locate the website, without knowing what sort of app it is, we might be looking at the wrong site. Many apps have similar names, but perform different functions.

Before you post any request, check the past postings for the same request, as it may have already been requested; and fulfilled, thus saving you time waiting for a reply.

Hi! :unsure:


If you DO NOT like the laaaaarge AOL AIM messenger, please do yourself a big favor & never accept the new yahoo messenger update v.6!! :angry:

It's a lousy copy of the aim, missing its characterists for nothing added, IMHO...

So, time to have this update on, thx a lot OldVersion.com guys!! :D

You can find full downloads of the 6.0, 5.6, 5.5 and 5.0 at this link:

http://www.zakie.fsnet.co.uk/ChatRoomsStuf...erdownloads.htm (http://www.zakie.fsnet.co.uk/ChatRoomsStuff/Help/messengerdownloads.htm)

Yahoo messenger has been requested many times befor. A simple search and you would have had you answer already and been able to download your program right away without waiting for a reply. For future reference, a search only takes a few minutes, about the same time wasted typing your request, but, the advantage is you'd have your answer and your download right away.

To the guy having problems with Y!Tunnel, I have found that when you update Messenger, you have to sometimes reinstall Y!Tunnel or check to see if there's an update to it for the new Messenger version. I'm thinking that somewhere Messenger and Y!Tunnel share a file or two that gets changed with an update so Y!Tunnel is too lazy to look for the revised file so it just refuses to work.

I would like the 6.0 version of Yahoo messenger but don't know where to find it. Can anyone help me please? I have tried the new 7.0 voice version but I am having trouble with it rebooting when I send messages to my friends or when they send me messages to me which is very annoying. Also, the stealth mode doesn't always work and wondered if this happens to anyone else. I use Yahoo messenger most of the time but this new version (7.0) is giving me heaps of problems and crashes everyday. PLEASE tell me where I can find the 6.0 version. Oldversion.com only has the 5.0 version and 5.6 as the current one which is way out of date. Hope someone has some answers for me soon as I am going nuts trying to find 6.0 and don't know where else to look.

admin always appreciate knowing when things need updating,as far as wanting yahoo v6 you need to make requests in the request board following the pinned topic how to request an app, also be sure to try searching before you make a request and vary your search words as in try messenger and not just yahoo.

Yes, I am hearing from my family members who are having nothing but trouble with version 7 of yahoo. I've already reinstalled their systems a couple times. The first time I have had to reinstall their systems in several months, and it just needed this because they installed 7

Your post was merged into this existing thread, which contains a link to a website which hosts many older versions of yahoo messenger. I'll add the link again to my thread.

Another good reason why it makes sense to search before posting.

question:

is oldversion.com going to include yahoo messenger 6.xxx in the downloads section for yahoo messenger? Yahoo no longer provides ANY version except for 7.

I made the mistake of uninstalling version 6. version 7 does not install on my machine(win2kpro sp4 with all applicable security updates). I get the .exe thats roughly 300KB but when i dclick it to start the 20 meg bloatware download it does nothing. saving the installer to desktop and dclicking or choosing open file location both dont work. it also didnt work when i had v.6 installed and chose upgrade to 7 at the prompt v.6 gives.

if i watch taskmanager the process just dies after a few seconds with no errors being produced on screen, and from what I've read, its probably a good thing. this is a fairly clean install of windows(not much 3rd party software installed) with pretty standard hardware. creative soundcard, asus mobo, stick of crucial ram, nvidia vcard, plus all previous versions of y messenger have never created issues for me on this same box with the same hardware. if they would just provide the dang installation file upfront instead of the 'online' installer it would make this much easier!!! Ok im wandering off topic since I dont want version 7 anyways. I just couldnt find 6 again after uninstallling.

freecreed.com is ok, if u get lucky and it works that week. This site is so much more reliable, hence my question about if it(version 6) will eventually be hosted here.

-TIA

I just wanted to get on here and say THANK U and thank u god that I could find an old version of Yahoo Messenger 6.0... Those jerks at Yahoo seem to have done everything they could to make it impossible to download anything but the new 7.0. Apparently I am not the only person who despises it... Im not exactly a computer programmer, but I know what I am doing and I could not for the LIFE of me get that new version to work. Worst of all Yahoo doesnt seem to like helping its customers out much because I waited days for a response to my email and cant find a phone number for tech support anywhere, the only thing I could find was a corperate office number.... Go Oldversion!!!

You do realize the link you posted is to this forums home page? I would hope those who post on this forum are aware that the forum is run by the same people who are posting those old files.
They both don't share the same address by mistake.
