Windows 7: Live Messenger crash

11 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Live Messenger crash


Does anyone know about a bug in Live Messenger in conjunction with multicore CPUs and Voice-Chat?

I have many crashes when i try to Voice-Chat over the messenger.
The only workaround i've figured out is to give msnmsg and wlcomm a higher priority ans give them only the first core. Than it works sometimes.

I'm running Live Messenger on win 7 x64 and an Q9550.

Is it a well known issue? Or does anybody knows how to fix it?
To change it everytime msn starts is really annoying!

Best regards,

I don't know whether it's a known issue (let me just get my head around that), but Live Messenger is a difficult app to "debug" because MS doesn't provide symbols for it. Having said that, I'm always interested, so I'll happily give it a shot if you can collect info according to this procedure:
