EPiServer.Blog and Live Writer


I'm trying to use the blog template from the demotemplates with Windows Live Writer.

I have used the tips below since it is a protected site:

My problem is that Windows Live Wtier (LW) fails to connect to the blog when I try to "Add blogg account".

After entering the blog URL, username and password Live Writer giv me the following dialog:

Select blog type
Windows Live Writer was not able to automatically detect your blog settings.
Please select the type of blg that you are using to continue.

I have a zip-file with more info - web.config, code and so forth


All help and tips are welcome.

I would use Fiddler to see the requests and responses from the web server, "hopefully" at least one requests fails with an indication of why... :/

Is anonymous access allowed to the WLW manifest URL?

It looks like I get a "500" so next step is to understand why.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/>
<title>500 - Internal server error.</title>
<style type="text/css">
body{margin:0;font-size:.7em;font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;background:#EEEEEE;}
fieldset{padding:0 15px 10px 15px;} 
h3{font-size:1.2em;margin:10px 0 0 0;color:#000000;} 
#header{width:96%;margin:0 0 0 0;padding:6px 2% 6px 2%;font-family:"trebuchet MS", Verdana, sans-serif;color:#FFF;
#content{margin:0 0 0 2%;position:relative;}
<div id="header"><h1>Server Error</h1></div>
<div id="content">
 <div class="content-container"><fieldset>
  <h2>500 - Internal server error.</h2>
