We are pleased to announce the release of our next update, which will be is now available later today. We’re making Live Mesh available to even more people, and removing the limit on the number of invites that you have. We’ve also greatly streamlined the sign-up process. And of course we’ve made a number of general performance improvements as well. There are more details below. By default your Live Mesh client will automatically update itself within 24 hours of the new build being posted, but you can always right-click the Notifier icon in the system tray and choose to force an immediate update.

What's new

  • More capacity: We’ve again raised the limit on the total number of customers we’ll allow to access the Live Mesh Tech Preview. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
  • Expanded availability: If your country/region is the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, or New Zealand you can sign up for Live Mesh directly, with no waiting list, by visiting www.mesh.com. We’re limiting the Tech Preview to these countries/regions for now because we want to make sure that all customers have a great experience with Live Mesh, and we’re still in the process of testing the experience for other countries/regions.
  • More invites: There is no longer any limit on the number of invitations that Live Mesh customers have for inviting others to the Tech Preview. Invite as many people as you like! (as long as they're in one of the countries/regions mentioned above, of course.)
  • Simplified waiting list: Though we’re not quite ready to accept customers into the Tech Preview from countries/regions other than the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, we have greatly simplified the waiting list process for everyone else. You no longer need to sign up through Microsoft Connect. Instead, simply sign in with your Live ID on www.mesh.com, click Sign Up, and you’ll automatically be notified once Live Mesh is available in your country/region.
  • Performance tuning: We’ve continued making a number of back-end performance enhancements, including tuning the P2P synchronization channel.

Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC) reminder

While we no longer require that UAC be enabled when running Live Mesh on Vista SP1, if you initially installed Live Mesh with UAC enabled, and then disabled it, you might have some issues upgrading. Please see the “NOTICE: Updating Lie Mesh and User Account Control (UAC)” Announcement on the Live Mesh forums for further information.

As always, we are continuing to improve Live Mesh with all the great feedback we’ve been receiving from our customers. Keep it coming!

  • I noticed that while the desktop reads version 0.9.3103.9....the main menu (bottom right of computer) still reads 0.9.3103.2

    also, just wondering if/when the max limit of 5 gigs will be upgraded or enhanced...

  • First Impressions -  Windows Live Mesh (Tech Preview)

    I like a good UI, and the folks working on Mesh have done a very good job of raising the bar for web apps.  This is still in tech preview, so there are some little pre-load things going on that you see, and it's a little slow, but it's looking really sharp.

  • When will The Mesh be available on the MAC?

  • When can we delete the note histories?  

    Some of us are starting to use live mesh very extensively and as a result are finding that the new section keeps growing and growing out of control.  Is there a way to archive or filter or delete the new items.


  • Hi guys. I have to ask: Why the heck isn't this available in Canada?? You've opened it up to other major English-speaking countries. Why not Canada? It's a little frustrating to share a border with you guys and yet be shut out of something like this, while people on the other side of the planet are being invited in.

  • I tried to sign up today and the page said its not available in my country (Australia).  What gives?

    According to your post I shouldn't have to wait?

  • Any idea when the Mac client is coming?

  • @ Finnius

    We've received a lot of requests to increase the cloud storage limit.  I've added your vote for this to our internal list of requests - though I'm afraid I'm not able to say at this time if or when the limit might be increased.

  • @ Mac client requests

    We're working hard to make the Mac client ready for customers to use and test.  We'll release it as soon as we're sure it will provide our customers the best possible Live Mesh experience.  We appreciate your enthusiasm, and thank you for your patience.

  • @ Matthew Christopher,

    This is a great suggestion, and not surprisingly, as more and more people have used Live Mesh for longer and longer periods of time, this is a request that we've been seeing increasingly often.  I've added your vote for this feature to our internal list of suggestions.  :)

  • I just sent an invitation today to one of our folks to join my mesh.  She was previously on the waiting list and when she tried to sign up today...it still tells her that she's on the waiting list.

    What up?

  • Is there any way that Live Mesh developers can create a guide for home network users to streamline their NAT/Router/Network settings to make Live Mesh more consistently establish P2P connections between nodes on the same LAN?

    I've been getting LAN throughput with the new build, but only in intermittent bursts.  Things will accelerate to reasonable speeds only to back down to Cloud-Cloud transfer speeds over the shared internet connection.  Anybody else experiencing the same phenomenon?

    Keep up the great work.  The potential for this is sky-high and I look forward to seeing this technology develop.  Thanks for the opportunity to test it at the developmental stages.
