    In doubt it is connected with SP2, unless it is a driver problem with
    secondary equipment (i.e. Sound Card, Camera etc.) Many users of SP2 use
    Windows & MSN Messengers without problems to Audio or Video operation.

    MSN Messenger 6.2 audio/video requirements:

    1. If using a modem/router it must be UPnP compatible. Set Zone Alarm to
    medium or shutdown, but if you are proficient with the settings, allow MSN
    Messenger 6.2.0205 access to the Internet.

    2. On the Network Connections, right click Local Area Connection, go to
    Properties, and the General tab should show a check mark only on Client for
    Microsoft Network, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). No check on File and
    Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, nor on QoS Packet Scheduler.

    3. The Windows Firewall should be ON (recommended) and no check in Don't
    allow exceptions . The Exceptions tab will later show the MSN Messenger
    6.2.0205 and UPnP Framework as being active.

    4. In the Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > Add Remove Windows
    Components, scroll to Networking Services and remove all checks, except for
    Internet Gateway Device Discovery, and for UPnP User Interface. Click Ok,
    Next, and after clicking Next the Windows Wizard Component will run. Click
    Finish; now the UPnP will automatically open all required ports.

    5. Sign in on Messenger and run Audio/Video Tuning Wizard. In the Tools >
    Options > Connection tab, you should read You are connected to the Internet
    through a UPnP symmetric NAT. (Administrator); if you are using a dial-up
    line it will read You are connected to the Internet using a direct
    connection. Now check the Windows Firewall Exceptions list, the MSN Messenger
    6.2.0205 and UPnP Framework will now have a check mark and the required ports
    automatically open.

    6. Both Windows XP users sides should have similar setups, with working
    webcams and microphones. Remember that one side can have dial-up and the
    other a UPnP compatible modem/router.

    Hope this will help, it has with many people. Your friend, Erfain.
