Microsoft Live Mesh RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I turn my PC on, I get an error message from Windows Live Mesh, stating "There might be problem with your internet connection. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet, and then try again"... my computer IS connected to the internet, and working perfectly, so why can't Windows Live Mesh detect it? I am running Windows 7.

    Window Live Mesh has long been retired back in 2013 and that is why your computer cannot find the servers.   Read about it here

  • Hi Dave,

    I recommend asking your question over here (Particpate -> Ask a Question):

    Windows Essentials forum on Microsoft Answers

    This forum is meant for feedback on the TechNet website/subscriptions, not product support.

    Good luck.

    Off topic (you can ignore this Dave):

    Mike - I hear the forums are transitioning to new owners. If you've got any pull with the new folks, my vote would be to archive this forum or at least change the name to something a bit more descriptive. There haven't been many on topic threads for quite a while now. Just a thought.

  • No doubt about it Mike, I'm just here keeping the lights on.  I think I've seen some email from you (i'm on some of the site feedback aliases), do you mind if I reach out to you through email for more info?

    Dave:

    Unfortunately your post is off topic here, in the TechNet Site Feedback forum, because it is not Feedback about the TechNet Website or Subscription.  This is only one forum among the many that are on the TechNet Discussion Forums, and given your post, you likely chose the wrong forum.  This is a standard response I’ve written up in advance to help many people (thousands, really.) who post their question in this forum in error, but please don’t ignore it.  The links I share below I’ve collected to help you get right where you need to go with your issue.

    For technical issues with Microsoft products that you would run into as an end user of those products, one great source of info and help is http://answers.microsoft.com, which has sections for Windows, Hotmail, Office, IE, and other products. Office related forums are also here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/support/contact-us-FX103894077.aspx

    For Technical issues with Microsoft products that you might have as an IT professional (like technical installation issues, or other IT issues), you should head to the TechNet Discussion forums at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for your product name.

    For issues with products you might have as a Developer (like how to talk to APIs, what version of software do what, or other developer issues), you should head to the MSDN discussion forums at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for your product or issue.

    If you’re asking a question particularly about one of the Microsoft Dynamics products, a great place to start is here: http://community.dynamics.com/

    If you really think your issue is related to the subscription or the TechNet Website, and I screwed up, I apologize!  Please repost your question to the discussion forum and include much more detail about your problem, that could include screenshots of the issue (do not include subscription information or product keys in your screenshots!), and/or links to the problem you’re seeing. 

    If you really had no idea where to post this question but you still posted it here, you still shouldn’t have because we have a forum just for you!  It’s called the Where is the forum for…? forum and it’s here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/whatforum/

    Moving to off topic. 

    Thanks

    Did Microsoft call you out of the blue about your computer? No, they didn't.
