Download Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 Beta with MSN 2010
March 23, 2010 | Filed under Microsoft;
Each version of Windows Live Essentials release is described as Wave. The first wave was released to beta testers on August 25, 2006, followed by Wave 2 on May 30, 2007 that was the time of Windows Live Messenger 8.5 and the latest current one is Wave 3 is released on January 7, 2009 which last until today for Live 2009 products.
The latest Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 Beta has been leaked and it contains the newer generation of 2010 Live products such as Messenger, Sync, Mail, Companion, Writer, Family Safety, Bing Bar, Photo Gallery and Movie Maker. Basically the Windows Live Essentials is an installer suite that helps to install and uninstall any of the Microsoft software listed above.
On the leaked Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 Beta, all of the Live products has gone through a major update especially the user interface with ribbon bars like what you see on Microsoft Office 2007. We have noticed that the build number has been updated to version 15 from the current version 14 but it still shows 2009 instead of 2010. The 2009 would probably change to 2010 on the final release.
You can use all of the Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 applications except Windows Live Messenger 2010 v15 because only Microsoft employee can sign in. To bypass this restriction, you can download the patch that replaces the original msnmsgr.exe with the patched one.
