Windows Live Messenger vs. Windows XP Messenger

I know that Windows XP Messenger was more oriented towards the business
community, but can Windows XP Messenger (the last version or so that was
available some time ago) make video/audio connections with Windows Live
Messenger?

I know Windows Messenger (preinstalled in Windows versions until XP), which
is numbered as 4.x (current is 14.x), so i think you know older versions
didn't support audio and video.

Greetings,

No and Yes.

Windows Live Messenger 8.x has compatibility with Windows Messenger (4.x and 5.x) but Windows
Live Messenger 2009 (the latest, 14.x) has removed the backwards compatibility.

I get the message at the point where I attempt to share my camera with
someone using Windows Messenger (from Windows XP).

No problem sharing the camera with a user who runs Windows Live Messenger
under Windows 7.

i,

Ah, I see, I thought you were talking about a separate issue. Like I said earlier, the
latest version of Windows Live Messenger won't be compatible with Windows Messenger video,
but text will be fine. The error messages can be a bit odd telling you this.
