Disable Windows Live Messenger Photo Sharing Hack/Patch
Posted by Ken Wee on July 30, 2009
Are you annoyed with the latest features Photo Sharing by Windows Live Messager? You can now disable it by hex editing the MSNMSGR.EXE or easier way which is using a patch which I uploaded. It simply allow you to drag any common picture format directly or from your clipboard via CTRL+V. It works in the version I am using which is 14.0.8064.206 and might not work in future releases.
Guide 1 –
Follow the steps below to hack it and don’t forget to make a backup of MSNMSGR.EXE first.
1. Download a HEXeditor (Like XVI32)
2. Open MSNMSGR.EXE in the editor
3. Goto offset 16392F
4. There should be a 74 in that offset. Change it to EB and save your changes
Thats it, restart MSN Live and see if it works.
Guide 2 –
Simply download this patch here and read the instruction inside.
Credit goes to Eduardo who created it.
Some known bug which is the person who created this can by pass Photo Sharing, however if someone who did not patch/hack their Live Messenger, when they send you a picture, Photo Sharing will open. It only works for people who hacked it, so forward this to your friend and kill this lame feature now!
Here is some screenshot of it working with CTRL + V from clipboard and Drag and Drop.
