I installed Windows 10 on my computer, and then to make blogging easy I wanted to install Windows Live Writer. So I went to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8621 to download it and well enough, I received the setup file wlsetup-web.exe in my download folder.
So things are easy from here: double-click the exe and it will install. Not on Window 10 (which is great, by the way). I received an error message (in Dutch, so I won’t put a screen shot here) telling me that something had gone wrong.
As always Google is your friend. I found an article explaining what to do, I’ll give you the solution immediately instead of letting you wade through all the answers. It turns out that there is a version that will work, but it is hidden at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/essentials.
The download at this location will work for Windows 10.
I hope this short post may help someone. If it helped you then please leave a comment.
