Help with Windows Live Writer

  1. #11


    When I look under windows live there are 5 folders but none have anything to do with writer. Is there any disadvantage to uninstalling windows essentials & reinstalling. I'm assuming that's where live should be.

    I'm wondering if you need to enable .NET Framework 3.5. Search the forum for a tutorial '.NET Framework enable in Windows 8/8.1'
    It may help.

    It was enabled, so that's not the problem

    Hmmm..., try uninstalling and reinstalling then to see if that works.
    When uninstalling see if you get an option to 'enable' or 'repair' the current instalation.

    OMG!!! What a nightmare! When I went to uninstall Windows Essentials it said it was already gone, so I deleted the title & restarted my computer. Then I downloaded Essentials. When I tried to install it (only Live Writer) it got halfway thru & said it couldn't install. Looked up some more information online, deleted another file & tried again. After about 5 tries from different sites, it finally downloaded. Thank you for all the information you provided. You helped me keep my sanity.
