My son has my old laptop and only uses it for Messenger. HD recently
failed but I had an old smaller capacity one lying around and swapped
this and reinstalled Windows. Laptop working fine - but Messenger
won't run - says insufficient memory. Have tried older versions of
Messenger but have problems with these too. Question is - Can I put
Messenger on say a USB stick as a virtual drive to get around this
proble m?. Laptop too old and unstable to waste cash buying a new
hard drive. Any advice as to set up/what we have to do to get it to
work with a memory stick would be gratefully appreciated.
Re: Older Laptop - Small HD - Messenger
You can't get Messanger working from a USB Stick, but have a look at
a.. Miranda IM Portable and
a.. Gaim Portable
in the internet section of portableapps.com (http://portableapps.com /) .
With these two Internet Messanger apps that can run off a USB Memory Stick
you can talk directly with other Messanger users.
Hope this helps
