I'm having a strange problem. I have been using Live Messenger (and before that MSN messenger) for a long time now.
Now I am running WLM 8.5.1302.1018 under Vista Home Premium... updated to the last updates.
Everything worked flawless until a week ago.
I decided to use my Jabra Bluetooth Headset with Messenger, so I can run around my house and still talk to my contacts, which has always worked perfectly in the past. So I installed it on my system and started using it. The microphone and headset were seen by messenger immediately and I could use them like a charm.
But when I switched off my headset and set everything back to my normal microphone and speakers in Messenger, it lost all the alerts and sounds. No online-alerts, no nudges, no mail alerts...nothing.
Webcam and voice-message and voice-call still work, but I dont hear anyone coming online anymore.
Now here is the weird part; In the options all the alerts and sounds are still available and operational (I can hear them in preview). Also messenger is shown in my adio-mixer and isnt set to mute or anything like that. So according to my computer and windows... It should work... but it doesnt.
I tried everything, from de-installing, re-installing messenger and my bluetooth headset in every way possible.
But it keeps refusing to activate my alerts and sounds in messenger.
Everything else works still as good as it did before.
Anyone any suggestions or solutions?
Thanx in advance
