    Default Yahoo Messenger for Mac

    Program Name: Yahoo Messenger
    Website: Yahoo.com
    Current version: 2.5.3 and higher
    Desired versions: Version that works with older Mac OS than 8.6
    Description: I've had no luck with this search anywhere. I was referred here by a friend who got his older version of yahoo messenger here, but it doesn't look like that spanned to a macintosh-based messenger version. Was there a yahoo messenger that worked for Mac OS 8.5.1 at all? And if so, if someone could point that out to me, I'd appreciate it. Yahoo's not being cooperative.

    Hello macgreen!

    The following versions should work with your operating system...

    Minimum system requirements:
    - Mac OS 8.1 with CarbonLib 1.0.4
    - PPC





    More infos about these versions...

    If you are looking for mac files versiontracker.com is one of the best sources, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the assist. Now I just ahve to figure out this carbonlib problem... I installed carbonlib 1.0.4 as required. but for some reason, the 2.5 version I downloaded doesn't find it when I try to get yahoo messenger to work. Any suggestions on how I can fix that, without downloading the next step up? Which I'm gonna try anyway.

    Currently I do not have any of my old Mac's setup to do any testing, no space left for them. I presently just run my new iMac (Intel CoreDuo).

    I would just double check your installation. Make sure you have turned on Carbonlib in the extension manager.

    I reinstalled CarbonLib and made sure it was turned 'on'. Now I'm getting a different error- "CarbonLib--DisposeControlColorupp" Could not be found.

    I've been looking on google for this error, but I can't find a thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
