Restore Trillian Activity History On Windows 7, Import Trillian Chat History

As noted in previous articles my laptops Windows 7 Ultimate x64 operating system install became corrupted after I attempted to install the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 update. I believe the issue was related to some sort of software conflict so not necessarily¬†all SP1’s fault though you would think there would be some form of error checking involved in the install. I waited out the upgrade for over 8 hours but in the end it still failed out. Anyhow during the process of reinstalling Windows 7 x64 on my laptop and installing all of the applications that were installed previously I wanted to restore my Trillian chat history for all of the various Trillian Connections. Below I describe what connections were configured and what Trillian Connections chat logs were restored.

How to View Trillian Connection Admin Messages Such as Yahoo Admin

With Trillian you may from time to time get connection admin messages that describe some sort of problem. At times these error messages or warning messages will pop up when Trillian starts and you may be in a hurry to just close them out so you can get on with working. The problem with this is that if the issue needs to be resolved you may not know how to retrieve these messages. One such error could be similar to my last post that described an error with the Yahoo Messenger plugin so in this case the error message came from the Yahoo Admin.
