Window Live Writer crashes on launch


  • I have just installed WLW under Windows XP Media Center Edition. When I launch the program, the splash screen appears for a few seconds and then I get the message "Windows Live Writer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvenience." The WLW installation was part of the larger Windows Live update, and the only other component I had chosen to update--Live Messenger--is working just fine.

    Any ideas?
