Updating Mesh-enabled Web Applications from the Application Catalog

We have improved the application synchronization experience with this update. To ensure you have the latest updates for your Mesh-enable Web applications synchronized to your client devices, you should do the following (note that the four apps in the Application Catalog have all been updated with this latest release):

  • Close running instances of the applications on both the Live Desktop and all your devices.
  • Launch these applications in the Live Desktop. This will initiate the application synchronization to your devices.
  • On the device, wait while the application is synchronized, then launch the application.

For installing Mesh-enabled Web Applications for the first time, please refer to “Installing and Running a Mesh-enabled Web Application


Some of the fixes in this update are listed below.

  • The Live Framework client has number of fixes related to Mesh-enabled Web Application synchronization and performance.
  • The Profile resource is now accessible through Mesh-enabled Web Applications.
  • Mesh-enabled Web Applications can now access their Offers on the client.
  • Mesh-enabled Web Applications can be successfully updated and synced to devices using Live Framework Tools for Visual Studio.
  • ScriptUrl is fixed for the RunAtServer method to refer to http://user-ctp.windows.net/V0.1/Script.
