Windows Live Writer crashing

April 13, 2013 at 11:23 AMMichele Mottini

I installed Windows Live Writer to have something better to write blog posts, but it was systematically crashing on startup.

The crash was an ‘APP CRASH’ in nvdxgiwrap.dll called by wlstartup.exe.

After some failed attempt I managed to solve the problem disabling the NVIDIA display card (start Device Manager, right-click on NVIDIA under ‘Display adapters’ and select ‘Disable’).

Once I did this Live Writer started up fine, completing the installation process. Afterwards I was able to re-enable the NVIDIA card and Live Writer kept working. Apparently the problem was just in the startup that runs when Live Writer is started the first time.

My setup is a Dell Latitude E6420 laptop running Windows 7 Professional 64 bits with Service Pack 1 and an NVIDIA NVS 4200M video card with the latest drivers – version
