Service update: new build available (0.9.3103.14)

We are pleased to announce that our next update is now available. The new build contains a crucial Live Mesh folder synchronization fix – details below. 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.


·         Fixed issue where deleting a Live Mesh folder on one device, or stopping the folder from synchronizing on that device, would cause the folder to stop synchronizing on all devices.

If any of your Live Mesh folders have been affected by this issue, please use the following steps to re-establish stable sync relationships for those folders:

1.       Update the Live Mesh software on all of your device to the newest version.

2.       If any affected folders are currently set to synchronize with your mesh, please stop those folders from synchronizing on each of your devices.

a.       Right-click on the folder and select Live Mesh Options, then click Change Sync Settings

b.       For each device, under Synchronize files, select Never with this device.

3.       Once you have removed the affected folders from your mesh, you can then add them back in again by right-clicking the folder and selecting Add folder to your Live Mesh.

Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC) reminder

While we no longer require that UAC be enabled when running Live Mesh on Vista SP1, if you initially installed Live Mesh with UAC enabled, and then disabled it, you might have some issues upgrading. Please see the “NOTICE: Updating Live Mesh and User Account Control (UAC)” Announcement on the Live Mesh forums for further information.

Thank you for helping us test Live Mesh!

    can you guys please check the update application on vista x64 as it does not appear to work (uac disabled).  every time an update is available you have to uninstall mesh, remove the device from your mesh, reinstall mesh, add device back

  3. Thanks, guys, i’ve just blogged about this bug yesterday, and here is the fix. ^^

    Thanks, great to get updates.

    I really need user rights enabled.  Read Only for certain users.

    My compliments! I’ve been using Live Mesh for quite a while now and I totally love it. I would be very much interested in the mobile client and f.e. synchronisation of subfolders. Keep up the great work!

    Testing Live Mesh.  If it could be more like eyeOS plus your ideas it will be awesome. For example, integration with Live Favorites, Contacts, Calendar, etc, accessible from the Live Mesh Desktop. I don´t wanna go everytime to my  Hotmail account and select from there the Live Services.

    Online edit of Office documents is a must also….

    Excellent, now how about that Mac version? 🙂

    @ fatboy,

    There are potential upgrade issues with Vista and UAC.  Have you taken a look at the "NOTICE: Updating Live Mesh and User Account Control (UAC)" on the Live Mesh forums?

    The information there might help.

    Live Mesh always forgets syncronization options when starting up. Live Desktop shows "Never with this device", but the local options dialog doesn’t.

  10. Folini says:

    When there will be a working version of mesh’s remote desktop for w2k3?

    P2P sync still doesn’t work for me at all; see bug 360530

  12. MSDN Archive says:

    @ SleeplessInDraper,

    We still haven’t worked all the bugs out of P2P sync, unfortunately.  We have some fixes coming in the not-too-distant future, though, so we hope you’ll hang in there with us.
