不能在server 2003安装Windows Live Writer 的解决办法

I wanted to try Windows Live writer yesterday, but it doesn’t support my server 2003.

I asked how to solve this problem in Thomas – Technical Blogger, and Thomas gives a useful link to me. Now, I am typing this post in Live Writer.

As long as you get the Windows Live Writer msi file, you can install it in server 2003 or x64.

You can get the msi file from a German blog www.live-writer.de directly.

or you can install Windows Live Writer Beta 3 in other systems, and navigate

  1. You will probably find very quickly that WLW is a great tool for writing blog posts. You will get used to the following features:
    – The ability to write your posts offline
    – Save drafts offline
    – An editor that shows you how your post will look online
    – Ability to easily add links, graphics, formatting and tags to your posts.
    Enjoy WLW, and let me know if you have any questions.

  3. […] to Thomas and J.Lai, I came to know that the reason behind WLW not installing on Windows 2003 server was not an issue […]

  4. NO. J.Lai is full of crap.
    .msi will not install on x64

    • Sorry, I didn’t check weather it works on x64. I just got this information from elsewhere. Maybe you are right.
