    As you have stated that you are using the windows 7 operating system but it is a 32 bit or a 64 bit and also tell that from where you have downloaded the beta 4 live that you want to install it in the system. The files that are downloaded from the websites other than Microsoft creates a number of the problems as most of the files are corrupted there, so first provide all the information and the error messages that you get at the time of the installation along with the error codes which make it easier to resolve your problem on the beta 4 liver installation on the Windows 7 OS.

    These problem mostly occurs when there is a problem in the Windows Firewall services, as many a time there are a number of the bugs present in the Firewall which does not allow the installation of the software’s in the system. So to overcome this problem you first need to enable the windows Firewall services and then starting it up. Then once you are done after installing the application and then stop it and disable the services again to overcome the problem, if then too the problem exists there so go to the Microsoft website for further help.

    The WL beta that you are trying to install may get corrupted at the time of the downland these happens when the download is not completed from the download website as thee may be a problem in the server from where you are trying to download which is the reason for improper installation of the WL beta application of Windows Live. To overcome these problem you need to download the application again from the Microsoft website by going in the download section and download the software completely and do not try to do any thing in the browser when the download is in the process.

    These is a frequent problem when you are using the Windows 7 OS with the Live 4 beta version on it. To overcome these issue you have to update the software that is the Windows 7 OS as there has been a problem in the windows files which does not allow the installation of the application and you get a error code messages. For the update you can go to the start menu in the windows 7 OS and then in All programs sections. In All program section select the Microsoft Windows update and it will take you to the update page from where you can select the Frame work 4 update and your OS and Frame work will be updated for the installation of the beta applications.
