Installing Windows Live Writer on Windows 10

I have been using Windows Live Writer to compose and publish my bog for almost for the past 4 to 5 years. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that Windows Live Writer has gone end of support on January 10th 2017 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/18614/windows-essentials

But if you still like to use like me then you may find it difficult to install Windows Live Writer on your Windows 10 computers.

Below are the steps article published on TechNet blogs on how to install and it works.

  1. Save wlsetup-all.exe file in a folder. Example: c:\temp
  2. Open command prompt (cmd.exe)
  3. 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)
  4. Type: wlsetup-all.exe /AppSelect:Writer /q /log:C:\temp\Writer.Log /noMU /noHomepage /noSearch
  5. Hit enter
