Ok, I had the API first, but thought it was the wrong, I have both.
Only difference is the HELPDIR, mine is blank.

I have the old MSN here: C:\Program\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

The version of my old MSN is 5.1 (did it got avatars? )

(Oh, and it's Windows Messenger, not MSN)

Edit: It didn't had any avatars, guess that's why.

do u have this file: "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" ? because it is the interface to ask msn to change the avator.

No, I didn't have Windows Messenger installed.


oh I see. I need to have WINDOWS messenger and not MSN messenger?
guess thats where the problem is. too bad I cant use windows messenger

no, that's wrong, it should work, currently I think it's a bug.

I mean that msmsgs.exe doesn't really matter of what version, I have version 4.7. It will just ask the new messenger to change the avatar.

I've uploaded a zip file, can you do a test for me? I need you to extract the file to your directory, must be c:\test
then run test.exe to see if it changes your avatar.

test file

After installing Windows Messenger, my display picture changes now in WLM, but if I stop the current track the picture remains the album cover and doesn't revert back to the original. Also, if I stop and start a new track or forward to the next track, foobar crashes.

It worked

Code: [Select]
creating instance ... OK
Trying to get the current avatar ... OK
creating instance again ... OK
Trying to set the current avatar ... OK

ok, I think it's the problem of the picture location.
let me see how to fix, because it's a bit hard as I have no idea how to test non english characters

Hi, just downloaded this and was really looking forward to using this but my console tells me that foobar was unable to load the plugin at foo startup?

Im using 0.8.3 and dont plan to upgrade, would this be the reason for it not working?

obviously you don't have the typelib interface to control the messenger.
btw, how can you get this result? because if failing to create the instance, it shouldn't try to get the avatar.

you've just told the reason, this plugin is for 0.9.x.

Mine are english only, and spaces.

Maybe my strings can help you debug more.

$replace(%_path%,%_filename_ext%,)cover.*
$replace(%_path%,%_filename_ext%,)front.*

And this is what console says: foo_uie_albumart_msn: setting avator of file: C:\Download\Mp3\Album\\Front.jpg

@Andreasvb
thanks, it is very useful.

@uberkrieg
you can try going to control panel -> add/remove programs to install the messenger again, I think.

@Xioze
my mistake, I should have mentioned it.

yeah, that was the 1st thing I tried, and nothing. I had messenger plus!! installed, removed that too and still cant get the pluggin (or the test program) to change the dp.
Ill keep trying diferent things and see.

  Is there no possibility of this ever being able to work with 0.8.3? Would love this plugin if it did.

basically yes, because I have no more reasons to use 0.8.3, most of the things I need is already ported to the 0.9. I keep the old one is just for tagging wma.

Andreasvb, so now you are unable to create the instance with the dll or unable to set the avatar? I just remember the test.exe use the same way as the dll.

I've tried many times, I don't even have one time not able to change the avatar. even with your format string and the path.

anyway I've made some changes to the code, give it a try.

new version of the messenger doesn't install the typelib interface for you, as I said before, you better use a typelib viewer to check if there's the typelib I mentioned previously.
