"I might be able to update this answer later with more detailed steps, but here's a general overview of what you need to do to get it installed.

Run the 64-bit LiveMesh setup executable again until you get the error message. Leave this window open.
There should be an AppData\Local\Microsoft\LiveMesh\Setup directory -- copy of the contents of this folder to another location. (There should be an MSI file at least.)
Close the LiveMesh setup.
Install either Orca from the Microsoft Windows SDK (instructions here) or InstEd It! (I haven't used this before, but it should do the job also).
Open the LiveMesh MSI file in Orca or InstEd It! and edit the LaunchCondition restriction to allow for install in Windows Server (see an example here).

Again, just an overview -- if I get a chance I'll try and put exact info for your specific case. And, of course, note that Microsoft may have a very good reason to not supported on Windows Server, so this is definitely at your own risk."
