It’s nice to see how many people are engaged in the Open Live Writer current issue. A few days ago jongalloway published a fix which solved the problem for some people, while the others reported it didn’t work. If, however, it does work - a strange side-effect showed up: once launched, OLW opened its new window every couple of seconds, which was pretty disturbing. I was the stubborn one to close those further windows and publish my posts anyway - but of course it’s not the way it should be.

Finally another workaround was published, which solved a multiple-window issue. All the two may restore the whole thing to work completely fine - but again, it doesn’t work in everybody’s case. If You, however, use Open Live Writer - it is definitely worth to check out - here I quote the how-to:

  1. Download and install the patch.
  2. Right click on Open Live Writer desktop shortcut and select Open file location. Find the Update (Update.exe) file and rename it to anything you wish.
  3. Now go up to the folder titled app-0.6.3 and double-click it to open the subdirectory.
  4. On that list, find the OpenLiveWriter (OpenLiveWriter.exe) application file, double-click it to run it from there.”

It should open the program only once (i.e., no multiple windows), and you should be able to publish posts with photos as before.
