I have the setup for the latest version of AIM (aka AOL Instant Messenger).

I launched the setup.

A box pops up saying I don't meet the minimum system requirements to install AIM, which were: 128 MB of RAM, 42 MB disk space, and to be running windows XP or 2K. Then the setup closes.

I meet these requirements though. I have 1 gig of RAM, more than 1 gig of drive space available, and am running a real copy of Windows XP.

Help?

If you're down to 1GB of free hard drive space, you need to upgrade.

Its probably just AIM throwing a fit, you could try clearing up some more space and try again.

Why not use a alternative messenger such as Trillian, Gaim, or Easy Messenger? They all work with AIM, and can be used for other services as well.

You could try an alternative program, such as Trillian or gAIM.

Freed up a couple gigs; that didn't help.

The reason I don't use trillian for AIM is because when I click conect nothing happens... it doesn't log me in and doesn't say I put in the wrong password or anything like that.. I typed my password and user though.... mabye I will try reinstalling trillian.

Gaim is good if you use Linux.

The Windows version of Gaim is pretty good too.
