Here, There, Everywhere...
The recent service update to Live Mesh addresses many of the issues users reported since we opened the Mobile CTP on Oct 30.
With the release of the updated Live Mesh for Mobile version 0.9.3424.9, we are expanding the CTP to more users. We are also lifting the country restrictions on access to the CTP – it is now open to all countries. [Access through a 3G network is recommended for a great experience.]
Since there is limited room in the expanded CTP, hurry on to https://www.mesh.com/Web/Promo.aspx?pcode=Mob_FCFS1 to add your Windows Mobile 6.x phone to your mesh. [Clicking this link will grant access to your Live ID for adding a WM phone to the mesh and redirect you to the device ring, where you can click “+” to see how to “Use Live Mesh for mobile devices”.]
If you already have the Live Mesh client on your WM6 phone, you should see an update notification the next time you login to Live Mesh from your phone. You can also navigate through Menu -> About -> Software Update, to install the latest client.
Thank you for using Live Mesh, and sharing your feedback!

NOTICE: Unfortunately, the update mentioned below has been slightly delayed (see the Update below), and will not be available today. We will let everyone know later this week when the update is ready. In the meantime, consider this a preview of what's coming! [We do apologize for the delay, and thank you for your patience. We want to make sure that everyone has the best possible experience once the update is released, and we need a little more time to ensure that is the case.]
UPDATE: In the world of services, we have blackout periods where no updates are allowed. This is to ensure stability during, e.g., the holiday season when use of a product goes up and the availability of employees to fix issues goes down. The Live Mesh team entered this blackout period before the final testing of our next Live Mesh client for Windows was completed. Thus, we're holding this update until after the holidays - look for more news in early January.
While we updated the clients for Mobile and Mac last week, as well as the Live Desktop, those of you with Live Mesh on Windows computers had to wait a little for your update - but we're happy to say that it's coming later today! Thank you for your patience. See below for the details.
This update will bring your Windows Live Mesh client up to version 0.9.3424.11
Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC) reminder
While we no longer require that UAC be turned on when running Live Mesh on Vista SP1, if you initially installed Live Mesh with UAC turned on, and then turned it off, you might have some issues upgrading. Please see “NOTICE: Updating Live Mesh and User Account Control (UAC)” in the Known Issues sticky on the Live Mesh forums for further information.
Thank you for helping us test Live Mesh!
We're pleased to announce that our next update will be available later today. This update affects the Live Desktop, Live Mesh for Mac, and Live Mesh for Mobile. We will release an update for the Live Mesh for Windows software next week. See below for details.
For those of you keeping track, the latest version numbers with this update are:
As always, thank you for helping us test Live Mesh!
