Install Windows Live Writer Beta 3 on Vista x64

September 10, 2007

I tried to install a new beta of Windows Live Writer (WLInstaller.exe) on my Vista x64 and I met the spartan error message:

Windows Live Programs can not be installed on this operating system

Solution: skip the WLInstaller.exe and directly download the MSI file for the Windows Live Writer from a German blog about Live Services.

It works!
