Update: Installing Windows Live Writer on Windows 10


I just found out that with the correct version of WLW you can install it without all the steps I described below.

Download WLW from: https://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentials and just install on Windows 10.



Hi people,

Sorry for being quiet for some time on this blog. One of the reasons was that I was not able to install Windows Live Writer on my Windows 10 devices. Yesterday I found out that there is a way to get Windows Live Writer installed on Windows 10 devices.

I followed the following steps.

  1. Download Windows Live Writer installation files from https://wl.dlservice.microsoft.com/download/C/1/B/C1BA42D6-6A50-4A4A-90E5-FA9347E9360C/en/wlsetup-all.exe
  2. Save wlsetup-all.exe file in a folder. Example: c:\temp
  3. Open command prompt (cmd.exe)
  4. Navigate within command prompt to location where you saved wlsetup-all.exe file.
    Within the command prompt type: cd c:\temp (if that's the location where you saved the wlsetup-all.exe file)
  5. Type: wlsetup-all.exe /AppSelect:Writer /q /log:C:\temp\Writer.Log /noMU /noHomepage /noSearch
  6. Hit enter

Hopes this helps.
