Windows Live Writer won't open

    Question

  • I have been working on this problem for about 18 hours now to no avail. When I try to open Windows Live Writer, I am getting an error that says: "Unexpected Error Occurred - An unexpected error has occurred within the application." and when I click on "Click here to see error details" I get this:

       at WindowsLiveWriter.ApplicationMain.LaunchFirstInstance(IDisposable splashScreen, String[] args)

    I have uninstalled and re installed so many times it's ridiculous. I have used Revo Uninstaller Pro to uninstall and get rid of any leftover files and I have also used the Windows Install Clean Up. I can't get it to work and I used this on a daily basis since I work from home. I have tried multiple threads stating to go into the registry or to delete a file from the appdata folder but everything that the threads have been talking about, I haven't beenle to find to modify. I could REALLY use some help! Thanks in advance!
