  2. Removed the User Account Control (UAC) requirement when installing and using Live Mesh with Windows Vista SP1

  3. Index for Desktop Search now works with Live Mesh folders

  4. Fixed bug where an underscore in a Hotmail account name returned an “Invalid Hotmail Address” error

  5. Fixed bug with Silverlight 2 Beta 2 failing to load in Silverlight Media View

  6. Fixed bug where the notifier tooltip incorrectly indicated that Live Mesh Remote Desktop was unavailable for a computer running in non-admin mode

  7. Fixed bug where the Live Mesh folder icon was not displayed in the e-mail inviting someone to share a folder

  8. Fixed one of the bugs that caused Live Mesh to fail to start

  9. Fixed problem with Live Mesh returning errors when waking from sleep/hibernate

It is great news that UAC is no longer required!


Live Mesh install on Windows Server 2008

I blogged here about not being able to install Live Mesh on Windows Server 2008, which I am running as my main workstation.

MsftGuy has a solution for this issue.  Basically you run the LiveMesh.exe from the command line with the -force argument.

Thanks for the tip! Helped me a lot
