Thanks for the corrections to the Windows Live Writer support docs! I’ve checked both pages, and only found one teensy error remaining.
The first link on this page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/windows-live-writer/ still has the url to the old Windows Live Space and returns an error page: “This Windows Live Space is no longer available.”
(The other page that I reported: http://en.wordpress.com/windows-live-writer/ now links correctly to the Windows Live Writer download page http://explore.live.com/windows-live-writer with no links to the old Space. Thanks!)
Apparently the Windows Live Space for Windows Live Writer was just allowed to die, rather being transferred here to WordPress when was Spaces closed down. Otherwise, the links would redirect to their new WordPress blog.
My Windows Live Space that I had for four years (http://x-evolutionist.spaces.live.com) had oodles of pages and was successfully transferred here to WordPress (http://xevolutionistspace.wordpress.com/) with all of my url links redirecting just fine.
Special Thanks to WordPress for letting me keep my years of blog posts! I have already sent a “Hug” to WordPress about how much I like it here.
