MSN contacts appearing offline

December 2016



Issue


All my contacts have the offline status, all the time! even when they are connected to MSN.

Solution

  • Go to
    • C:/Users/"Session Name"/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Live
  • Delete this file:
    • Contacts


Launch MSN and it will rebuild the contacts list (It is stored online).

Thanks to kokii for this tip.
