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.

Install Trillian Off The Record Messaging On Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

I have been slowly getting everything installed on my new laptop I recently purchased that has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit on it. One of the applications I figured would work without issue was the Trillian OTR(Off-The-Record Messaging) plugin which allows encrypted communication over ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Jabber, Rendezvous, and Sametime instant messaging clients. Trillian actually has a built in encryption system called SecureIM however Trillian OTR goes way beyond the security provided the built in encryption provided by SecureIM.
