I’ve tried to run Windows Live Writer under Windows 7 beta today. It runs but it can’t upload pictures through FTP. There are two indications of the problem:
- when you configure FTP connection it will yield this warning
The remote server could not be contacted to verify the settings. Do you want to continue anyway?
- Publish or save draft to server will yield an error:
Error occurred while transferring file [picture name here]
(Publishing Error) A publishing error occurred: The source of the error is unknown.
I wonder whether this bug is related to x64, Windows 7 beta or to both.
