Windows 7 needing to install Live

Anybody having any luck installing Microsoft's Live in Windows 7? I need Windows Mail features that are not automatically included in Windows 7. Live just will not install after repeated tries, I'm assuming that it is not allowed in this Beta version. Any info. on this would be very welcome.

It should work I have it running on mine and I am using Windows 7 64 bit but if you want you can try this fix for Windows Mail, BUT you will need to have a dual boot with Vista or a way of copying the files from Vista and applying them to Win 7.
