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 really wish Live Mesh would work with custom themes under windows xp. I know they are not "microsoft signed" and all that, but I do think many people change their skin to get something else than teletubbies-like skins. Live mesh really breaks the explorer with custom themes.
Apart from that it works ok. Not that great on conflicts (versus SVN) and sometime it takes a while before my changed file goes to the other computers (foldershare updated files instantly).
Live Mesh Version 0.9 (0.9.3712.831) is unusable on Macintosh OS X 10.5.6 - broken. BEFORE the update 1/14/2009 everything worked and worked well. Now all is broken.
Yes, I'm afraid you're correct: the Live Mesh for Mac client is for Intel-based Macs only.
I have problem with Live Mesh on Windows 7. It always writes "Live Mesh is currently starting" and I dont know, what can I do. I install updates and turn of UAC. Can you help me please?
@jz - installed working now, I guess the SSL issue was the problem.
Just remove your Mac from the Mesh in the Live Desktop, delete the folders "Live ID" and "Live Mesh" under ~/Library/Application Support and it should run fine on 10.5.6.
@Live Mesh team
Just wanted to thank you guys... absolutely amazing piece of tech and now even my netbook running 7 is part of the Mesh. However, I would suggest automatically expanding the ring in the Live Desktop as with 8 devices, things start getting a bit messy.
Live Mesh is definitely now having problems on OS X 10.5.6. Resetting the client worked for about a day and then it broke again. Having to reset the client daily is not cool.
will you fix problems with proxy servers ?
We have a proxy configuration url (proxy.pac) with proxy authentication, live mesh doesn't recognize these settings properly, and live mesh can't do proxy authentication (that's the bigger problem).
TIA and regards, Ralf
I have a mesh on 2 devices(workstations) one with 3 monitors at 1600x1200 and the other with 1 monitor at 1920x1200. In the original mesh release, I was able to RDP (assuming its RDP) into the 3 monitor machine with the 1 monitor machine and it would do screen scaling of the 3 to 1. Though difficult to read, it was good for general overall display; at which point you could hit 'show actual display', and get scroll bars to move around. This worked great until 2 updates ago. Now the screen scaling and scrollbars still work but the mouse control is completely off. Basically if you have screen 1,2,3 (and screen 2 is the screen with the taskbar), you can not get your mouse onto screen 1 or 3. The mouse region is locked onto screen 2. So in my original example the single monitor's lower right corner will get me to the system tray icons only, even if I have moved the display over to screen 1 or screen 3.
Is Mesh aware of this newly introduced problem?
Are there any estimates on when will Remore Desktop support P2P connection?
My emploee will kill me if he get to know that all the data is going through Microsoft's servers!
Will this version work with Windows Home server (WHS). An outstanding product. Thankyou
It would be more correct to not say that this "disabled Aero" since it never did that.
It simply forced your glass color to black. Still annoying, but didn't disable any Aero features, and still better looking than Basic :)
Live Mesh is still screwing up my Window Border settings in Win7.
1. Connect from my Win7 machine to my Vista SP2 machine at home.
2. Window borders become gray and not translucent. (In Personalize, the "Enable Transparency" box is unchecked.)
3. Closing the remote connection does not restore settings.
Please fix the proxy authentication problem with Live Mesh. Without this fix, the program is useless for people who connect to internet through a proxy server (which means - for all internet users here in Singapore). Thanks!
This new version still disables mi aero@W7...
