yahoo messenger has no Archive any more..

Post by dacflyer » Sat Sep 19, 2015 12:47 pm

i have down loaded yahoo and it has no archive anymore, but in a yahoo chat with a yahoo rep.
i was told it is there and if not to down load and reinstall it again... i have and still nothing..
i see in my registry that there is a setting for it..but it shows no value
does anyone know what value to put in it to activate the registry ?
when i look in my yahoo settings under preferences, there is no tab for archiving or history settings.

I got tired of the bloat of yahoo messenger, so eventually went to pidgin, you have your yahoo messenger list, emotes, etc, just alot less memory usage and you still have the archiving stuff.

Another thing you can do is use a site like oldversion.com and download an earlier version of yahoo messenger and install it from there, then after installing it, just go into the options and disable the automatic update under advanced options in preferences.

ya i was thinking that, but then it did not like to do peer to peer stuff like sending pictures or files, it always timed out or said i canceled the transfer etc.
but i am usually good with fine tuning yahoo...
