    MSN API's

    Hey everyone, I heard about MSN Plus (add-in for MSN), and that sparked my interest for writing my own add-in for MSN messenger. I've googled for a while now, but I can't find the SDK/library for it anywhere, and any links I've found to the official docs are broken.

    Does anyone know where I can find the tools I would need to write an add-in?

    Look here. Not sure if it has exactly what you are looking for, but it looks like a good place to start

    Ah shoot:
    The Windows Messenger Add-In APIs are no longer available.
    And
    Support for the Add-Ins APIs is specific to Windows Messenger versions 4.6 and 4.7. There are two different client programs that connect to Microsoft® .NET Messenger Service: Windows Messenger, and MSN® Messenger. The Add-ins APIs are not available with any version of Windows Messenger other than 4.6 and 4.7, and are not available with MSN Messenger. Windows Messenger only runs on Windows XP.
    It really makes you wonder, how did they make MSN Plus!...

    Thanks, that'll be useful if I want to write my own client. But I'm actually hoping to just write a small add-on for the official client, that lets me send diagrams in the ordinary text-message field (it's a part of MSN Plus, but I'd really prefer to write my own).
