Windows Live Mesh

I recieved my invite to Live Mesh today and found it would not install and reported that I should check my network settings: "Installer encountered errors: Please verify your network settings and attempt to reinstall".

Well all was fine with my network settings. I tried setting my locale to US as suggested on some site and ensured that UAC was switched on. I then tried changing my auto proxy configuration script to a hard coded proxy (in IE connection settings) and Live Mesh then installed. So if anyone else sees this error and you are using an automatic configuration script for your proxy, that is why.

Hopefully Microsoft will fix this at some point.
