Installing Windows Live Writer on Windows 8

It’s been a LONG time since I blogged – and I figured I’m going to get back ON IT!

So – first things first, I needed to install the awesome Windows Live Writer. So I Google “Windows Live Writer” – and it brings me to this download page.

The problem? This installer doesn’t work on Windows 8. I get the error message:

Couldn’t install programs

You already have a more recent version of Windows Live.

Another quick Google later – and I came across the Windows Live Essentials Page – hit the “Download now” button and you’ll be good to go :)

Side Note: I know that upon expanding “System Requirements” – I can see Windows 8 isn’t listed. But it’s not immediately obvious and the browser knows my OS anyway :P
