Instant language services support on office and classroom IT lab computers. Part I: Initial Setup

  • If you have Windows XP on your office computer, we can use MS-Messenger (ver 4.7) “Application Sharing”  to provide immediate live assistance with computer problems in remote parts (also useful for collaboration with colleagues on documents, including web pages, when a phone call is too little and a meeting is too much).
  • click “Start”, “Run”, type (or copy/paste): “C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe“, click “OK”
  • Initial setup (you have to do this only once)
  • “Add a .net passport to your windows xp user account”:
  • Email account
  • Users of http://hale-translation.groups.live.com/, http://hale-interpreting.groups.live.com/, or the  Interpreting online calendar (http://calendar.live.com) can re-use their windows live account
  • Other users can use existing hotmail/windows live accounts or create a new hotmail/windows live  account (you may want to create a separate account for work related messaging)
  • On your office computer, also check the checkbox to “Associate your account with your windows user account”, like here: , when asking for help on a student computer, uncheck this
  • Add “Thomas_plagwitz” at “hotmail.com as a contact (initially, I will have to accept this before you can contact me):
  • Click on “I Want To … Add A Contact” (green plus sign)
  •  Once set up with Messenger like described here, go to PART II.
