Hi,

I'm trying to use Windows Live Writer for the Blog section. WLW is presenting a dialog:

Remote posting URL for your blog: http://<hostname>/<mw-script>

What do I enter in that box?

I struggled with this as well.  Use this to set it up:

http://localhost/StreamInsight/Metablog.xshx

I've also fixed a bug in the code that stopped me getting it working properly

Thanks alot for you answer. I run into another problem also. Unfortunately I cant remember what the error message was (I must have been something of a file not found error), but I had to rename the file for the blog page (under app_data/pages) from {guid}.config to just .config. Then it seems to work fine.
