I use 2 factor authentication for my WordPress blog login. So, when I tried setting up Window Live Writer as my local WordPress blog editor I ran into the following error:
To set up the application-specific password, I had to log on to my WordPress account, navigate to https://wordpress.com/me/security , click on “Two-Step Authentication” tab and click on “Add new application password”
Enter a name for my Windows Live Write application and click on “Generate Password”
The new password is displayed on the screen.
I copied the the password into the Windows Live Writer setup window to complete the setup.
I did check “remember password” on the Windows Live Write setup window.
