Wondering if Steve's problem might be at Live Spaces end instead of at WL
Photo Gallery end I decided to do a little test. I could not publish either
and got the same message but with a different error number.
I tried to add a photo to an existing album and got: Publishing failed.
Please try again later (0x80000ffff).
This happened both on XP SP2 and Vista (Home Premium).
The Vista Machine is new and has not been used to publish pictures to Live
Spaces before, computer connected to modem directly (wired). The XP Machine
has moved upstairs when I got my Vista Machine and switched from a wired
connection to a wireless USB connection (bluetooth). Before when the XP
Machine was still my main one and wired to the modem directly I have been
able to publish pictures to Live Spaces with it.
If it is at Live Spaces end, it is specific to the photo albums as I also
tried to publish a blogpost with Live Writer to my Live Space and that went
To complete here's my regkey data too:
Registry on Vista:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="Windows Live Photo Gallery Flickr Publish and Subscribe Provider"
@="Windows Live Photo Gallery Soapbox Publish and Subscribe Provider"
@="Windows Live Photo Gallery Live Spaces Publish and Subscribe Provider"
I hope this will help you find the problem(s).
