Is the current Windows Live Writer crashing for you?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aaron Bregel @ 9:31 AM

Hi how are things?  I know I have not blogged about Live Writer for awhile but I have been sick a fair amount over the last few months.  Today, for example, I was supposed to be at WordCamp Seattle but I just cannot seem to get over this cold I have.  Work has been keeping me busy as I learn all the ins and outs of Windows Live Photo Gallery and I still try to keep an eye on what is happening with the Writer team.  I also have been blogging more on my personal account and recently used the Photo Album feature in Live Writer to upload 100s of photos to my SkyDrive share to share photos from a family vacation.  Also a few fun videos were uploaded via the post to YouTube.

My question today is to ask about if the current version of Live Writer is crashing for you?  I see tweets about crashes and blog posts being lost but I never know if that is the previous version or the current version.  You really should not be seeing blog posts lost with the new version.  If that is the case make a comment in the support forum — http://windowslivehelp.com/forums.aspx?productid=9 and also make a comment on this blog post.



  1. It’s not crashing, but I suddenly cannot highlight chunks of text. I highlight what I want, but as soon as I let go of the mouse button, the highlighting disappears. It’s preventing me from properly using quotes and other features. It’s VERY annoying! >:-(

  2. I have had some crashes and a very crazy thing where if I create a page in wordpress first It does not show up in windows live writer. Do you know of a way to fix that issue. I tried the post downloader plug-in but it doesn’t work if you change your permalink structure to an seo friendly one instead of post id.

  3. I believe I asked this same question but just in case: a few days ago I saw that WLW when it went to my WordPress blog came up with code…when I asked to see it back on Live Writer it went to the blog and came back in code…I will show u an example and I don’t know if it is Writer or WordPress nor how to fix it…I hope u have some hints…but mostly I need you to fix it if u can….(I will pay)…here goes the sample

    I wrote this on Live Writer:

    Mary Had a little lamb its fleece was white as snow. EVERYWHERE Mary went the lamb was sure to go

    it posted like this

    pMary Had a little lamb its fleece was white as snow. EVERYWHERE font color=”#ff0000″strongMary went the lamb/strong/font was sure to go/p

    Can you tell me why and what has happened and if possible how to fix it?
