The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

Live Writer 14.0.8050.1202

livewriteraboutI just upgraded to the latest Windows Live Writer. 

It looks better and now it renders my blog template correctly.  Maybe there are more features I’m missing.

It is worth upgrading it just to get the “Check for updates” feature.  So you never again have to figure out how to upgrade it (see Jim’s rant here: Sighcrosoft – Why Can’t I Just Love Live Writer Without Confusion?).

Strangely enough, its now easy to upgrade here:  http://download.live.com/writer.

Well… this is embarrassing. We just released an update that’s newer than 14.0.8050.1202. One of the two bugs it fixes, is that our “Check for updates” mechanism broke irrevocably in 14.0.8050.1202 and earlier builds. :(

If you download the new version from http://download.live.com then “Check for updates” will work again. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thanks for the heads up, Joe. I’m re-posting your info so that if I sent anyone down the wrong path they’ll figure it out.
