In case you don’t know about Windows Live Essentials, you can go throughout extensive walk through here. Microsoft has essentially re-branded many MSN and Windows Live services to unify them under one brand. This change not only affects the online services such as Hotmail and Calendar but also the desktop apps like MSN Messenger. This is an attempt to clean up and unify the design and feature set of web and desktop applications as well as to compete against Google as most of their applications compete against each other such as Gmail vs Hotmail, Windows Live profiles vs. Orkut and so on.

Microsoft has been suffering huge losses compared to their operating income for their online division recently so this re-branding actually comes in at a critical phase for the company. This is also a time when dependency on desktop apps has started to decrease since web apps are becoming more powerful by the day.

    I’ve installed the program using installer, and it downloaded the files. How can I recover the downloaded files? Where are they? Can I use them to install into another machine?

    • Navigate to this folder C:Program FilesCommon FilesWindows Live.cache and you’ll find all the setup files there.
