Hey all, I run Vista Ultimate x64, iTunes 9.0.1.8, and the latest Windows Media Player, and Windows Live Messenger, all up-to-date and updates from Windows Update. When I play a songs on iTunes they do have proper ID3 tags (and show up on my Logitech G15 screen) but will not show up on Windows Live Messenger. I have the show what I'm listening to checked on. I also have the "Windows Live Messenger Music Plugin" checked on.

I have tried reinstalling iTunes multiple times, and WLM. I have not yet reinstalled Vista Ultimate x64, but my friend has almost a identical system to mine and his works. Ideas?

I think it used to work before iTunes 8 or somewhere in between one of the iTunes updates, then it stopped. But as I said my buddy has a close system and his works.

Thanks in advance!

Try this, it's a bizarre fix but others have reported it works.

In MSN Messenger go to Tools > Options > General and check "Open Messenger main window when Messenger starts
