Loved it, now it wont work.


  • Hello all!

    I really did love this piece of software. It is probably amongst the better I have ever tried. Now I have got a problem tho.

    First off, to be clear. I am beta-testing Windows 7, but the Beta (And perhaps the RC) of Windows Live Writer worked flawlessly on my system.

    Now, however, after I was prompted to update my Windows Live Messenger through the Live Essentials-software it also updated my Windows Live Writer... Ever since that, I have not been able to use Windows Live Writer.

    The only thing that happens when I click on the software is that the Error Reporting-program starts gathering info and sends it somewhere instantly.

    I have tried in compatibility mode. (Both Vista and XpSP1)
    I have tried with administrative privileges (Spelling?)
    I have tried with both above.

    No bananas.

    Now please, I am in bad need of this program before I forget what I was gonna blog about. :)

  • Do you use Wordpress as your blogging service?

  • Oh! I should have been more precise with my thread :)

    I use Windows 7
    I use Blogger.
    I have two blogs through Blogger.
    Both blogs worked in Writer before the update.
    I went through the forum and found two possible sollutions, one was deleting the keywords and the other was to change some registry-key. Tried both and neither worked.

    Hope this means you got the answers you need. :)
