    Unhappy MSN Messenger

    Hi,
    Has anybody had any experience with using the MSN Messenger APIs in Visual C++, or know where I could find a tutorial/source code to help me - I can only get it working in Visual Basic so far.

    Thanks,

    Sorry I think I should have been a little more specific - its the *creation* of the "Messenger" COM object that i'm having problems with, after that I'm assuming it will be much the same as in Visual Basic

    Like what you'll find as answers to most posts like yours, look at msdn. If its new and microsoft, it will be there.

    Unhappy

    I checked on MSDN *before* starting this thread - and that's exactly my problem - they don't provide any documentation for the Messenger SDK, only a download... or maybe I just can't find the documentation? I've looked all over! I can't find anything. Please help!!!!

    Lightbulb Well...

    If you have source in VB, you should be able to translate that to C/C++ (if you know VB).most of the function calls are very similar.you can also use MSDN to look up specific commands to check you're work. When using 'COM' allways remember 'CoCreateInstance' or w/e.

    Just a few "pointers" (=COM) SPH
