Cannot start Live Writer on Windows 7

    Question

  • I have just installed Live writer on Windows 7. I get an error starting Live Writer saying "A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly". The log indicates a System.NullReferenceException. I have re-installed and still have the problem. Can any one help me with this.

    Here is the log:
