Windows Live Wave 3 Beta Installer for Windows Server

Update: There's a newer post containing the final version of Windows Live Essentials. Head over along the Newer Posts buttons and go get it!

Just noticed the lack of a messenger installer for any of the Windows Server OS'es. Hopefully, this shall rectify the problem.

Logon Screen Customization on Windows Server 2008 = YES, IT IS POSSIBLE!

I knew that one day someone would find a way to get rid of that annoying blue thing covering our precious logon screen in Server 2008. Luckily, the people present in this topic (this link), remanaged to find a way to do it.

However, I can make a quick summary of what needs to be done.

1. Find authui.dll in Vista, x86 and x64 respectively (depending on your Server architecture).
2. Replace Server's file with Vista's
3. ????

Anyway, a HUGE thanks is deserved for the people who worked hard in order to figure out this thing. Now I can finally stick to Server... after I find my logon...
