Login failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just created a blog for a friend (with his Windows Live account) and tried to show him Windows Live Writer, but he gets the following error message while trying to create the blog in Windows Live Writer (something like this, as I translated it from Swedish to English):

    Login failed

    Windows Live Writer couldn't login with this username and password.

    Check the information and try again

    I then tried to access my own blog using Windows Live Writer on his machine and it worked fine. Could this be because he just created his Windows Live ID shortly before, or does he need to change some setting in the Space to allow the use of Windows Live Writer? The computer is running Windows 7 RTM 64-bit.

  • Any spaces in the name or the pw?
    Check that.

    Hope this helps.

    No spaces and it is still not working, so my friend switched to ZoundryRaven and he can now edit his blog through that application. Thanks for your help.
