Windows Live Writer doesn’t work well under Windows 7 beta x64

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.
