When I try and install Live Mesh, I get the following error ...

"Live Mesh Service is unavailable. Please retry your installation later 80072F78. The server returned an invalid or unrecognized response ."

I tried installing the work-around from Connect, but that did not work either. I am using Windows 7 RC x64.

The issue is with real-time checking from anti-virus software. I got the clue from this blog post. I had to disable all real-time checking from AVG, reboot and then installation succeeded without problem.
