This is just a quick reminder post for me (or someone else who stumbles across this) that the solution to connecting your MSDN blog to Windows Live Writer can be found here:

The above link is no longer available.  Try this archived copy.

Note the following:

  1. The Settings URL did not take me to my account settings.  I had to log into my account and then go to the Settings page on
  2. The login to allow 3rd party application access to your MSDN blog, e.g. Windows Live Writer, does not use your Microsoft Account password.  There is a separate password, which is what you are requesting to change.
  3. Although my address is what I use to log into my MSDN blog, it still wanted my address to log in with Windows Live Writer.
