Hi,
I've tried uninstalling AMSN and re-installing it with no luck (same error msg on startup)

Also tried re-starting PC with no luck

Use another client for msn pprotocol, as emesene or pidgin.

try to launch amsn from a console and paste this information. But before delete de configuration files with

sudo rm -rf ./amsn

and relaunch amsn

(sorry for my poor english)
