I have had this issue with two previous OS installations as well, and
previous versions of Messenger as well. MSN Messenger is not displaying the
curreent song information, in spite of the option being checked -'Show song
info from WMP as a personal message.' It worked, but only the first time
MSN Messenger was installed and run, and never after that.

Can this be resolved, or is it a bug?

Greetings SC,

To double-check this is actually turned on, open up Windows Media Player, click the Tools
menu, then Options, then Plug-ins tab, look under the Background category and verify that the
MSN Messenger Music Plugin is checked.

Fantastic, Jonathan. It worked. Curiously, the other plugin, Nero fast CD
burning, was also disabled in WMP by default.
