Handwriting tool not working.
I recently upgraded to Windows Live Messenger Version 8.0 *Build 8.0.0812.00*
and I discovered that I can't use the handwriting tool at all. I'm running
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, but I don't have a tablet PC. In
Options, the Handwriting check box is checked. I don't know what else I can
do to fix this problem. I clicked on the Handwrite feature in the Windows
Live Messenger instant message window when I tried to use it, but it says "To
use this Handwrite feature, you need to install or update software. For
details on enabling or hiding the Hardware feature, click Help." So I clicked
on Help, and it brought me to the instructions for how to Send messages in
your own handwriting. I read the part that says "If you can't use the
Handwrite tab in the conversation window, install the following software. So
I read through the following list:
* Windows XP or Windows 2000 (with Service Pack 3 or later). If you're not
sure your operating system is up-to-date, visit the Microsoft Update
* Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer 1.5.
* Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer Security Update.
I downloaded Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer 1.5 along w/ Microsoft Windows
Journal Viewer Security Update. When I tried to install Microsoft Windows
Journal Viewer 1.5, it said that "Windows Journal is not intended for use
with Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Use Windows Journal to display
Journal notes on your tablet computer. Can you help me resolve this problem
so that I can use the Handwriting tool in Windows Live Messenger again? Thank
you for all those that contribute and have a good day!!
