Can't find the software for MSN Premium with Windows 7 64-bit

Message 1 of 6

Got a new PC, using Windows 7 64-bit. Tried to download the MSN Premium software like I had on my previous PC.  It tells me my system does not meet the minimum requirements for MSN Premium.  I searched diligently but can't find where this problem has been addressed.  Thought I could download from the MSN site but it redirects my right back to the Verizon site.

 

Any help appreciated.

Have you tried this site? I have been running it under Vista 64 and ran it under Windows 7 RC1.

Yes, when I tried doing it through the MSN member center, clicking on the download link simply brought me to the Verizon site.

You may want to call Verizon tech support. After I upgraded my computer to Windows 7, I called them & they gave me aURL for a web site where I downloaded & installed the MSN Premium software. I don't remember the URL for that website, but I had no problem installing and using the software. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit & it works fine.

Wont do you any good anymore. Verizon has pulled down the link. MSN premium has been discontinued by Microsoft. They discontinuted it when they started windows live. MSN premium is no longer supported by Verizon or Microsoft. Its a use at your own risk program and if it doesnt work, you are on your own. But all "official" download links have been discontinued.

Right, MSN Premium has been discontinued. The whole MSN or ".net passport" system is obsolete (I think I had it last in 2004); Windows is now focused on their "Windows Live" brand.
