Windows Live Writer 2011 prompts for username and password when publishing to SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two SharePoint blogs which were working perfectly with Windows Live Writer 2010.

    Since upgrading to Windows Live Writer 2011 I am unable to publish, all Live Writer does is ask me to authenticate enter the username and password does not work. I'm authoring content from a different machine to my SharePoint Server. When I create a SharePoint connection with Live Writer it accepts my username and password but does not allow me to download the default theme as it returns an error.

    I have checked the username and password by connecting to the site using a web browser and this works.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
