Recently I faced a glitch in this great application a latest update is released for Windows Live Essential which replicates and effects WLW as well. The impact of this update is that my Windows Live Wire crashed and I am unable to find any resolution after beating every bush, hitting every pillar and corner I have to restore my PC loosing my important installations.
So if you are getting the update notification in your task bar of update please avoid updating until and unless you are with the mentioned specifications. The possible issue at first place I observed is due to the reason that this update is meant for 32 bit X86 based windows. But my PC is neither 32bit nor is x86 windows.
Now next question is why is it sent to me for update. Anyways I have sent a mail to them stating the issue and to fix it ASAP. Lets see what is going to be a resolution of this issue. I suggest not to download and install this update till next update from Microsoft.
