Attention Trillian users
I'm a Trillian Pro user for IM on Windows. Today Yahoo changed their IM protocol, and there is a bug in Trillian Pro 2.0, and I think the older versions, that can cause Trillian to crash when started if you have it auto-connect. On my old WinME craptop at home I'd get a Kernel32 error and would have to close Trillian. If this is happening to you, you may need to edit the ini file directly - since you can't use the Trillian UI to change the auto-connect setting if it crashes on startup. You'll have a file yahoo.ini somewhere - for me in C:\Program Files\Trillian\users\default. Change "auto connect=1" to "auto connect=0".

Drove me a bit nuts until I remembered today was the day for Yahoo's change, then I figured it had something to do with that.

Trillian Patch

Make sure you have the latest patch (ends in an e) which should fix the Yahoo! and MSN issues. At least I believe that it does.

Re: Trillian Patch

Nope. Unless it came out in the past few hours, it is a known bug in 2.0 that it can crash on connection with Yahoo. Older versions like Trillian .74 and Trillian Pro 1.0 might be OK with the patch, I don't know for sure.

Re: Trillian Patch

All versions of Trillian seem to crash when you try to sign on to Yahoo. :( I know, I spent a half-hour at work yesterday trying to get it up and running, and the patches didn't help at all. :( But luckily they're working on a new patch to fix it though.
