UPDATE: DON’T BOTHER THERE IS NOW AN UPDATED APP IN THE STORE:
I love Windows Live Writer over Word for publishing my posts but installing on Windows 10 is a mission. I eventually worked out how to do it.
- Download Windows Live Writer installation files from http://wl.dlservice.microsoft.com/download/C/1/B/C1BA42D6-6A50-4A4A-90E5-FA9347E9360C/en/wlsetup-all.exe
- Save the wlsetup-all.exe file in a folder somewhere.
- Open Command Prompt.
- Navigate to where you saved the executable.
- Type “wlsetup-all.exe /AppSelect:Writer /q /log:C:\temp\Writer.Log /noMU /noHomepage /noSearch”
It takes a few seconds to install then should be on your Start Menu.
I also post a lot of PowerShell so a good tool is Syntax Highlighter.
Download Syntax Highlighter Evolved WordPress Plugin and install it on your Worpress installation (https://wordpress.org/plugins/syntaxhighlighter/)
Install Source Code plugin for Windows Live Writer (http://sourcecodeplugin.codeplex.com/) Copy the DLL file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Writer\Plugins if the folder does not exist create it.
Inside your WordPress Dashboard, select Settings > SyntaxHighlighter and check the box Load All Brushes.
From Live Writer select Insert from the ribbon and choose “Source code plug-in”
Paste your PowerShell Code into the window, select PowerShell as the Code Language and click ok.
