Live Mesh installation misdiagnoses the Win 7 as Vista RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Have an HP Pavillion dv5-1250US laptop. The Live Mesh installer diagnosed the OS as Vista 64 when I am running Win 7 Ultimate 64. I did a clean install of Win 7 Ultimate so there should have been no residual files from before. The installation completed but Live would not access anything in the ring. I have no clue as to where the problem lies or a solution.

  • There is no Live Mesh installer specific to Windows 7. The installer for Vista x64 is the same as Windows 7 x64.

    What do you mean by not being able to access anything in the ring? Since you did a clean install, this is a new machine and you should have been offered the folders from your Mesh on the desktop of the Win7 PC once you signed into the Mesh.

    What is the current condition of your system and Live Mesh?
