Syncing Open Live Writter Drafts to the Cloud (OneWrite)

Difficulty Level:    

Open Live Writer (OLW) is open source version of Windows Live Writer (with the last version published in 2012). It’s very useful ultility to enable users to auther, edit and publish blog posts.


OneDrive is the Cloud storage for everything in your work and personal life. It gives you online storage and can be accessed from your computer, tablet or any other devices you use.

I’m using both of them (OLW and OneDrive), and I want to sync all content I created with OLW to OneDrive automatically. I tried to find the OLW’s configuration but cannot, so HOW TO?

I did searching and found the workaround solution by heading over to HKCU\Software\OpenLiveWriter in your registry (via Regedit.exe) and making a new String value called “PostsDirectory”.
