For Windows 7/Vista (Program Data is a hidden folder, make sure you have set hidden folders to visible).In the Logs folder, open the last accessed file, which would have the same date when you installed the web set up.It wasn’t until the moment when that firmware came up in the browser screen that I realized just how much that I had been missing all of these years. By wiping the Linksys default firmware and installing DD-WRT, I had unknowingly and unwittingly converted that cheap router pretty much into a super-router.It is now capable of more things than I could have ever imagined.If you carefully read the logs, you can actually find the links from where the web installer downloads each of the program. In the image above, you can see the actual link from where the installer downloads Messenger 2011. Similarly, you can see the links for all the applications included in WL Essentials separately using the logs.One important thing to note here is that all the files are in format. So finally we have arrived at the separate offline installers for each of the application, here they are; Photo Gallery 2011 (11.1 MB)Movie Maker 2011 (4.02 MB)Messenger 2011 (7.64 MB)Windows Live Writer 2011 (2.65 MB)Windows Live Mail 2011 (4.98 MB)Bing Bar (6.2 MB)Messenger Companion (1.7MB)Live Mesh (6.01 MB)Family Safety (4.8 MB)Outlook Connector Pack (2.2 MB)There are many additional files needed for installing Windows Live Essentials like Direct X, Visual Studio runtime etc.Windows Live Essentials 2011 final version was released few days back and we have written about the offline installer for the complete suite.

I then covered the sling with newspaper and taped it on.
I ran my fingertip over the edge on all the tape to make sure it was sealed.
I liked it when the router worked instantly without much effort, but I was willing to go in and do things like change the admin password or enable router security, once I was convinced by my geeky friends just how dangerous an unsecured router could be (even though my nearest neighbors are the occasional deer and maybe a chipmunk.) I first started actually poking around in that Link Sys router when I discovered that a neighbor – a person visiting the area from Texas for the summer – was in fact stealing my Wireless signal.
It’s not a good feeling – but I quickly closed up that security hole.
