Live Mesh on Virtualized XP running in Ubuntu RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    are there any issues running Live Mesh on a (legal) copy of Windows XP running inside Virtualbox on Ubuntu? I just started the service today but am unable to connect through the remote desktop feature. I get an error code: 00000040, 5 -- but I see several others are getting the same error code without much of a reason recently. Thanks!

  • Hi Tim,

    As you note, we've seen a large number of people reporting this error recently.  We are currently investigating.  It would help if we could take a look at your Live Mesh logs from the virtual XP machine.  If you wouldn't mind collecting them (instructions are in an Announcement at the top of the forums) and emailing them to lmprev@microsoft.com, we'd appreciate it.  Please mention the error code in the subject line of your email.
