Live Mesh does not install on Windows Server 2008


For those of us running Windows Server 2008 as a workstation , here is another shocking gaffe! Live Mesh requires XP or Vista (32/64 bit). No luck for us Windows Server 2008 users.

Hopefully someone has hacked the installer to let it run on Windows Server 2008

If this doesn’t work, VMware is the only option. Here is a request to VMWare. How about modifying Fusion to let Windows run seamlessly within Windows ? Then we can have XP installed on Win Server 2008 and share folders between the host and the VM

 Update: MsftGuy has a fix here

    I have also been stymied by this bizarre problem. I can only assume MS is planning to fully support the server OS’s but has just not tested it (hey it’s still a CTP). Not being able to put a server on the mesh is simply a deal-breaker.

    You can use ‘-Force’ command line option to skip the OS version check.
