Here, There, Everywhere...
Now that we are out of our holiday blackout period for releases, we’re happy to announce that the next Live Mesh for Windows client update will (at long last!) be available later today is now available. Thank you for your patience, and please see below for the details. By default your Live Mesh software 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.
Update: Doh! We are embarrassed to say that the new version is going to be delayed just a little bit longer. For your safety and enjoyment, the Live Mesh client verifies the SSL certificate of the update server before downloading new code. It turns out that one of the other things we didn't get to do during the holiday blackout was update our SSL cert, which expired at end of 2008. As soon as we can get the new valid cert up there, the update will be available.
Update 2: For those of you who have recently received the error below while trying to update or install Live Mesh, the issue has now been resolved. Please try upgrading or installing Live Mesh again. If you continue to encounter problems, please visit our forums and let us know.
"Live Mesh Service is unavailable. Please retry your installation later. [80072F78] The server returned an invalid or unrecognized response."
This update will bring your Windows Live Mesh client up to version 0.9.3424.14
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!

Aero in Windows 7 still not working for me. It went off, came back, then went off again, and reenabling it under Personalize doesn't do anything. I'll try a restart, although this still needs ironing out.
Also, is it possible to sync multiple folders to a single folder in Mesh? Since I'm dual booting, as are many people, drive letter names are different in the two operating systems. Does Live Mesh recognize them as two separate folders or a single common folder?
We haven't released the update quite yet: it's coming later today (and we'll update this blog post once the new version has been deployed).
Thanks guys. Windows 7 doesn't look sooo nice without Aero.
I love Mesh it's really usefull and now i can really use Win7 AND Mesh...that#s really great!
So a long old evening in the UK, then... any chance of letting us know what time it'll hit the servers in GMT?
Oh I see. Sorry about that! I didn't realize you hadn't actually released the update. Thanks. I'll look forward to testing it when it comes out.

Woohoo - cheers :-) - I've been dying since running Windows 7!
The previous version shut off Aero glass, which was highly undesirable. Here's the update , from
Live Mesh Service Update (January 13, 2009) Feed: Live Mesh Posted on: Tuesday, January 13, 2009 2:41
It turns out I wasn’t the only person out there who was excited to get access to the Windows 7
I installed the latest bits and now live mesh is broken / wont install. Anyway to get the older install back?
why wasn't live mesh featured at CES? combined with onenote, it's a powerful tool for real-time note-taking and sharing for students and people in the 'real world' taking notes at meetings, presentations, etc. it definitely has killer app potential; you guys just need to market it right.
Any update on availability? Its already 7pm in Redmond...
likely a stupid question....but where do I find the update?
Right click the system tray icon and select "Check for Updates". Otherwise it will update automatically. You can also click the (?) icon and choose "Version" to see if you are running the latest version.
