Windows Live Writer and certificates (/allowunsafecertificates)

This is a rather old one, but in case you are using Windows Live Writer for writing your blog entries and your server uses ssl certificates which Live Writer regards as unsafe (for example, if the domain does not match the url :S), you can use the /allowunsafecertificates command line option. Just right click the Live Writer entry in the start menu, select Properties, and append the options to the command line in the Target field. After that, Live Writer will (no longer refuse to) connect to your blog engine using SSL/TLS.

Here is a list of the command line options Live Writer supports (in German).
