Windows Live Writer Crashes after a little while of being open.


  • When I open Windows Live Writer it works fine and all and then I start to write and randomly it will close and nothing will happen. It just closes. I am writing on a Blogger and WordPress account, I am using:

    Windows 7 Ultimate
    64 bit machine.

  • Luckily, I've never had Windows Live Writer crash on me, but then again, I'm not using Windows 7...

    My first thought would be to turn off any plug-ins you've loaded in Windows Live Writer. Turn off anything that's happening for you automatically, including 'live' spell check.

    Turn one thing on at a time, if the problem stays gone, or as you start using them again, maybe you can find your problem.

    Just trying to help...
