there already is gaim

gaim is 10 times better, why would you need msn messenger if gaim can log into your msn account anyway. most functions are also carried over although some are not.

Gaim is NOT good!

Well, if you found it good randomguy, mine is bad, VERY bad.

It always crashes when chatting, when starting it, when logging in..... bla bla bla.

I tried downloading it from different connections, I tried using it on my friend's pen drive and it didn't work!!! :/

I would like some other MSN-like IM except Gaim and Miranda. Can anyone help PLEASE ????

Dangerous:)

I think it is really dangerous to release Microsoft's program by adding "Portable" before the programs name. We don't want John to get caught Smile

And there is another problem: The program isn't open source. It will be harder to get rid of registry entries.

Another alternative: Miranada IM

Another alternative: Miranada IM. http://www.miranda-im.org/
Portable, with lots of plugins for MSN, Jaber, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, customization... it´s a permanent guest in my USB and hard drive.

Anyway, it´s clear that there are many alternatives to Microsoft´s Messenger.

i tried mirianda and also

i tried mirianda and also gaim, i found gaim to be good but take up too much space on this small drive, mirianda though would be ideal but it doesnt display your contact groups, can i fix this at all?

Trillian Anywhere

Another alternative would be Trillian Anywhere ( http://www.trilliananywhere.com/ ). I'm a Miranda Fan-Boy myself though.

PixaMSN and Meebo

PixaMSN is a small MSN Messenger clone. Here is the Portable Freeware write-up:

Meebo is an AJAX-based web IM app that allows you to log into several IM protocols all from your JavaScript-enabled web browser. See my blog for more info on that.

MSN Messenger

...is installed on most every machine, and if it is disabled, there's no way you could make a portable version run.

Just use Meebo (AJAX-based Gaim) or Gaim, or Trillian or Miranda. Why do you need MSN messenger itself?

Maybe not the application itself

Well, I move around a lot, using 4 or 5 computer wether I am at home, at my parents, at work... and I'd really like to be abble to carry with me all my contacts history, smileys, themes, received files... from MSN Messenger.
And I really mean MSN Messenger, not any "clone", as they all lack some functions I use.
The application itself can be installed on most PCs, and those where it is blocked, well, GAIM or PikaMsn won't work either. So do anyone know about a way to use always the same "profile", stored on my USB disk, from any computer ?

Online MSN

Well a real alternative i found lately is a website-based msn messenger. It lets u log on to msn and some other IMs and chat online, although its a bit slow.

there is also webmessenger.msn.com

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Windows Live Messenger

I do not know if anybody has seen this one, but it's actually Windows Live Messenger Portable. Called Windows Live Messenger Lite. It's definitially against copyright though.
