I don't know but.........

did you restart your computer after you downloaded the new version? Something similar happened to my sister and she kept getting the old version when she opened what she thought was Win Live 2009. Afer she restarted the new one came up.

Hope that might help.

It's very unlikely you'll get an answer in Italian, as we are an English language site.
And it's unlikely you'll get a useful answer if you don't tell the details about your problem in English. Now all we know: there is some error checking some msi-file.
