Msn live messenger can be started by  commenting out 
	@ stdcall FindActCtxSectionStringA(long ptr long str ptr)
	@ stdcall FindActCtxSectionStringW(long ptr long wstr ptr)
lines from kernel32.spec file.
By the way it needs native gdiplus.dll, otherwise you won't get it's window.
It is still unusable because of lack of textsrv functions of riched20.dll 
(native causes unhandled exception), and there is another problem that is 
present in msn 7.5, you can't sign in.
