    How to easily export all Facebook messages ( Conversation, Chat history ) fully from beginning.
    Few step process.

    Download link (FacebookMessageExport.exe):
    Version 1.1 ( NEW )


    OLD version

    Step 1.
    You have to download a copy of your Facebook data which include all your messages on your Facebook account. Keep in mind that messages that you have deleted previously are not going to be in that file, those messages can't be retrieved ( deleted from database forever ).

    You will have to wait few minutes or few hours at most for your files to be ready for download.
    Link for download will be sent to your Facebook primary E-mail address ( In most cases the one that you used to register or log in ).

    Step 2.
    After downloading your Facebook files, they should come in zip/rar format. Use any free software or windows default to export all files from zip/rar file.
    As you can see in my video, file that you need is only messages.htm, so copy that file in some folder (in my case I created Facebook folder so everything would be nicely organized).

    Download my application (FacebookMessageExport.exe) which you will use to export all messages that are stored inside of messages.htm.

    Copy FacebookExportMessage.exe to folder you created a few seconds ago (in my case Facebook folder, where messages.htm are also located).

    Run the application ( If you have problems running an application, please go few lines below where everything is explained).

    When application window appear, enter the names (Full Facebook names) between two person you would like to export conversation and click start.

    It can take a while for application to find messages, but you should get a pop up window which says that your messages are found.
    After confirming a window, application will start to export your messages to folder "Messages".

    You will see another pop up window when all messages are exported.

    Result should be a day ordered files inside of "Messages" folder which represent a message conversation between two people for one day.

    Please post a comment whether it worked for your or not.

    [Security Problems]
