I’ve just completed a Dual-boot deployment of 2008 server on my home PC (so I can gradually migrate from Vista to 2008 server) – one of the first things I needed to do is fire up MSN Messenger, so I kick off the deployment package… WTF is this message?
Sorry, you can’t install Live products on server Operating systems.
So I quickly call my home boys (Fired up Google) and got the low-down on the shiz-nit (searched for "Windows Live Writer 2008 server"). Sure enough, the Live auto-downloader rejects anything but desktop OS’s, but you can download the MSI packs from Microsoft by following Daniel’s guide – here is his post (and another one – use Daniel’s Guide first) that explains how to use the WLInstaller.exe downloader tool to download the latest version of all the apps on another client PC (eg a computer running a desktop OS). So now I can msg my homies and rap using Messenger, then blog about my new record contract using Writer.
I have to get some sleep…
