Download Yahoo Messenger 9 Offline Installer From Yahoo Servers

yahoo_messenger In continuation to the series of articles I’m writing to download offline installers of daily used products, I’m glad to pick up one of most popular Instant Messengers – Yahoo Messenger. Sometime early last year I wrote about downloading offline installers of Yahoo Messenger 8 and very few people are still using that version. The current version of Yahoo Messenger is 9 and its an eye candy with very rich features.

In this post I don’t want to explain what are online, offline installers and their advantages. I believe you are already aware of them and that is why you are here for an offline installer. Here is the link of Yahoo servers from where you can download the offline installer of Yahoo Messenger 9.0

    Specifically, which version and country are you trying to d/l, Ana?
    Also – give us the URL you are trying.
    Are you trying to d/l it at work (on the company network) ?
    We can help, if we have more information.

      ana,
      there is no need of any user name and password to download the installers. I’m surprised that you are asked for an username & password!!

    My pleasure Gonipath
    I just hope it actually helps someone – lol

    I want to mention that I have tried some of the foriegn downloads
    after posting the above. A few countries no longer have the version 8’s available, and it seems that older versions are now limited to 8.1.0.421 and the latest 9 version – only a few months ago, I was able to use these links to acquire different versions for different countries

    Many versions are available from Yahoo!, and for many countries. You can still acquire version 8 for most country codes, as well as all the older version 9’s. Below, I have listed the examples for Argentina. In each URL, you will find the country code for Argentina (ar) listed twice. To download the file for a different country, just change the “ar” in those two places to the appropriate Yahoo! country code.

    Hi Bahooji,

    Yahoo! may have certain IP’s blocked from certain files. In some cases, Yahoo! has agreements with foriegn governements that allow them to advertise, so long as they follow specific guidelines. In some countries, for example, Yahoo! is not permitted to provide voice chat capabilities. In such a case, Yahoo! may block IP’s from that country from access to files that provide voice chat.

    If you feel that is the case, you may try accessing the file through a proxy server from the US. If you are able to read English well enough, you may want to simply download the desired US version from FileHippo. It is notable that the YahooMessenger.exe file, itself, is the same for all countries (except China). Many of the other files are different, most notably the res_msgr.dll file that contains the menu text (as well as restrictions to menus) and the intl.reg file that contains registry entries for additional Windows User Accounts. With some tinkering, some foriegn users who want to access restricted features have modified their installations by altering these files.

    The most restrictive country is China. Yahoo! must follow very strict guidelines to comply with their agreement with the Chinese government. As such, users in China do not really get a version 9, as we know it. Many Chinese users download the Tiawan, Singapore, Hong Kong or Malaysian versions in order to access the newer features.

    dedndave,
    The download you pointed was hosted on non-yahoo servers. So we have not published information.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
