How To Install Windows Live Suite On 64-Bit Systems

Like the idea of the Windows Live Suite? Well, if you’ve got a 64-bit computer, you’re out of luck, since it will refuse to install on your system.

Oh no it won’t!

This blog has instructions on how to get it on x64 Windows. It’s not a perfect solution. Basically, it relies on tricking the installer into running on 64-bit Windows and downloading the 64-bit versions of the applications. Normally, the installer won’t run, but with this fix it will run and fail, but will download the installer packages you need, which you can easily run and finish the job.

The instructions:

  1. Patch WLinstaller.exe
    At offset 0×1B9F0, change 74 to EB
  2. Execute WLinstaller.exe
    Attempt to install all products, ignore the installer errors and exit
  3. Navigate to %systemroot%\Syswow64\config\systemprofile\AppData\
    Local\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources
  4. Use the handy dandy chart below to install the products you want to install/update.
