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!

i just wonder. is the death of mesh inevitable??? is it going to be synced with sync eventualy. or is live sycn goiing to be linched and mesh will be the only one in the end. does anyone know ?? is mesh just for testing improvements for sync or is it its own software line.
So the SSL certificate expired... that should explain why people can't complete a fresh install.
Thanks for keeping us informed, and thanks for such a brilliant product! (My computer seems so incomplete without Live Mesh.)
It seems to be working. They downgraded the install to .5 and allowed for an update to .14
I got the updates on all my machines and Aero is back on Windows 7, but it still kicks back to basic on the host machine when I connect to one of the other machines. Definitely not as big of deal as it being gone the whole time. ;)
Hooray! Update is kicking in! I believe it is normal behavior for Remote Desktop to switch back to Aero Basic.
Will this also work for the Live Framework CTP Mesh Client?
Given that you can no longer "right-click" on the Mesh client in Windows 7, how do you force it to check for updates?
@Ian: You can acomplish that by click on "Show hidden icons", then "Customize..." and in the "Notification Area Icons" dialog selecting the "Show Icon and notifications" for Live Mesh Monitor.
@Ian and @Antonio
Or, you can just show the extra icons and drag the Mesh icon to the tray with the rest of them.
Telling Mesh to update isn't finding anything for me right now. Are there still issues?
Why does my phone, which is running the Live Mesh client and is online, not show up as online from the taskbar icon on my laptop?
And why, when I connect to a folder from the phone, does the Live Mesh client have to open a browser window and then ask me to sign in, when I am already signed in to the Live Mesh client? Shouldn't the client have a built in file browser or at least better integration with the browser?
This is very much a work in progress.
Wonderful! Just congratulating you on the good work.
It may be vain, but I'm most glad about having control over Aero colors again. :)
That's got to be a bug then. You can right click the other items in the "show hidden icons" section.
Thanks for fixing the Aero issue! I didn't even know that it was Live Mesh that was causing the issue, but it's niced to have it fixed now.
Guys, hi. first of all thanks for Mesh in Windows 7 bug fixes.
Please advise why i can't install Mesh software on Power book G4 ? Is it only for Intel machines ?
Can we now put the Windows Live Mail Storage Folder into Mesh?
I have read, that that caused an endless sync loop.
