Request Help

Hi everyone

I have tried using Reg Rapper to port Yahoo Messenger but not successful. Can anyone please help me to do a portable Yahoo Messenger.


GAIM does it very well (well at least the linux version does)
It is already a portable app Smiling

Portable Yahoo Messenger

Gaim is a very good IM apps but I do a lot of voice over through Yahoo Messenger. Most of my friends leave voice message in my Yahoo Messenger, if only someone can make it portable for me so that I don't have to carry my notebook around. Thanks

Hi, Ashes for Tears. If it possible I dearly ask you to post the link where we can download Portable Yahoo Messenger.



I was having a bit of trouble with that, and I don't have access to everything at the moment. If I can work out the kinks I'll post back. But at the moment things are a bit hectic.

Thank for your help

A link to Portable Yahoo Messenger

Hello, I think I'm missing something from above post. Does anybody know if there is a portable version of Yahoo Messenger that will work with Yahoo voice chat or VOIP?


Plus, it's closed source and probably illegal to redistribute.
The above poster was asking if Ashes had it. It's not likely as Ashes as disappeared again. Eye-wink

Yahoo Voice?

I know this might seem like "this years's daft question" BUT . . .

I have used used YIM, MSM, AIM for voice and found them fine holding conversation with folk on the other side of the world. However, what was wrong with Netmeeting for voice. Many people have found that Miranda and Gaim (which i've found fine and no problems) allows one to communicate messages but not getting into voice conversation at busy times. Having a separate Voice package allows one to have a less 'bloated' application than Skype on one's system. (Most seem to use Skype for messaging anyway and occasionally voice so why bother with it? Yes it does have encryption but if one is not going to discuss 'military secrets' why the need for encryption!)

The main providers seem to dish out 'compulsory' updates on a monthly basis which i don't want to be bothered with - particularly for the advanced features. Compulsory in the sense that the old version ceases to work. Hence my reason for using Miranda (just find it a little faster than Gaim to use).

PC-telephone, Tesco internet phone etc and any of the numerous Voice only packages offer VOIP technology equivalent to skype. There is now a portable D-VOICE (

So the daft question; it would seem the ideal solution is to have Miranda or Gaim and a small voice package or netmeeting for the occasional conversation when required - WHY DOESN'T THIS DEVELOPMENT TAKE PLACE. I had to stop using Skype as i couldn't afford the space along with each of the IM programs - and each of their updates messing up my machine every month or so.

It seems to me that the situation is defeating itself. Far too many programs to be bothered with. Netmeeting is something we've all got from Microsoft on our machines and yet rarely used it it seems.

Just be interested to know what drives this situation - i know many [like me] have just dropped the idea of using voice that's all and just stick to plain text messaging as a result of the update 'market'.

Kind replies - i'm obviously missing out on much knowledge.


its good
