  • Glad to see bug fixes..but..why do Microsoft beta teams (with the notable exception of the new Windows 7 team so far) seem to always add new features while not adding basic functionality that was requested at the beginning of the Beta. Drag and drop for folders. One of THE most basic things you need for any kind of app in the cloud for reasons that should be obvious. Each time, we get new bells and whistles but basic features (and there are some others) I've been reading about on the forum since the early days just seem to be disregarded for the "cool" and updated. This was the problem with Vista, I see it as a problem with IE8 where the first betas focused on tons of new features that constantly created problems rather than just basic browsing, and now Mesh which I love seems to be getting caught up in "newness." I have said it before and I'll say it again, Microsoft is best when the core software handles all the basics and then third party developers add bells and whistles. When Microsoft gets on the bells they get to a release and then are surprised when users ask a basic question like why won't the browser "browse" or in this case why won't the live desktop act like a desktop and let me drag and drop folders. I know we got to get bugs first but after bugs the comes basics.

  • What about Windows Users will we be getting an update as well and what about Win Mobile ??

  • What about windows and windows mobile users will we be seeing updates as well ??

  • Any ETA on a Windows client update, esp. one addressing the "black screen" remote desktop issue? The feedback entry on that has been stuck at "working on a fix" for months.

  • Will the "Turning off Transparency when using remote desktop in Win7" bug ever be fixed for real?

  • @ Windows client & Mobile client questions,

    Please stay tuned: You have not, of course, been forgotten, and we'll have more to say soon.

  • Is delta sync going to be implemented sometime soon?

  • When will drag and drop start working for the live desktop?

  • I tried the "My Phone" service, and the WinMo client is exactly what I could expect from a sync tool : light and fast !

    To sync my thousand photos + videos, it took a time, but only to send them, not to scan them !

    I really wish the next version of Live Mesh for WinMo will be a true soft (not a "limited" IE displaying web pages) and will improves speed AND basic function as choosing which folder to sync, or synching an existing folder in the mesh.

  • Am loving Mesh on Vista and OS X.

    Why is it that even with the latest update, I have to restart Mesh on the Mac two or three times before it starts properly?


  • Just installed the MAC update on MacBook Pro (today is 3/6/09); Live Mesh still crashes immediately upon attempted start-up. Not fixed yet.

  • I'm still getting crashes with this update. I tried updating first, then removing, rebooting, and re-installing. Is there perhaps a plist or something I'm missing when uninstalling?

  • I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I cannot get Mesh to work on my Mac correctly.

    It installs just fine, joins the Mesh okay, and starts to sync without any issues, but then a few minutes into syncing it stops and never finishes. I have a Windows Vista box and a Windows 7 box with Live Mesh syncing without any hitches.
