    FYI: http://messengergeek.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E3785B1281BBDA1!680.entry

    It runs fine. The only hurdle is the installer EXE. The MSI listed on
    the site there will install in XP64.

    This is -probably- a security (and liability) issue on MS's part.
    They likely don't want you installing IM clients on a server. XP64
    just gets caught up because it's built on the Win2K3 codebase.
