Installing Live Mesh Beta on Windows Server 2008 R2

It’s never easy… the downloader doesn’t seem to work from the web or somesuch, or at the very least not with Windows Server 2008 R2; running locally spits out an error about local policy not allowing the installer to run.

To work around this, add a new key named Installer below


and then create a DWORD named DisableMSI. Set the value to 0.

In my case I’d already downloaded the installer so I ran it locally, no change to UAC, no reboot, no –force switch on the installer. I’m meshed.

Ps. I deleted the key after install but it’s probably not necessary to do so.
