Try doing that on an older version (e.g. 2008), and it will work.

i’m having the same issue with live writer 2011


#6

i will create a new blog in wordpress


#7

well I found out how to kind-of fix it

After I set up Live Writer 2009, I found that it too couldn’t download the blog theme. Also, the config had changed itself to the main site. To fix it, I went into the config again and changed the homepage set to http://escargotspaces.com/<username here> and set the remote posting path to http://escargotspaces.com/<username here>/xmlrpc.php and then Live Writer was able to download the theme.
That’s how it should look at the end:
