Windows Live Writer 2012 Video Insert error

I recently formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows 7 - Professional. Amongst other tools I have on each of my computers is Windows Live Writer. Re-installing WLW(I discovered version 14 has been released and trying to launch it, I ran into problems inserting a youtube video link.

The error (below) only happened when I tried inserting a video, via the usual video icon >> video from the web; after which I usually paste the youtube link in the Video web address box.

The error is als follows:

I searched online for a solution for a continuous 24-hours. Solutions / proposals to resolve such issues didnt help. I searched further, until I found info that let me to uninstalled Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Essentials, etc., and then downloaded a standalone version of Windows Live Writer 2011 - which has been working since.

Please if have experienced such an error(above) or you have a better solution apart from using a standalone version, kindly leave a comment.

Internet Explorer is a requirement of Windows Live Writer. Although, it's not listed as a requirement on the Windows Live specifications; it's required.
And Windows Live Writer relies heavily on it to be able to do the theme detection, HTML rendering and the page preview. Not having a current version will keep Windows Live Writer from starting, or producing weird errors.

Even if you're not using Internet Explorer as your DEFAULT browser, it has to be updated.

You should ensure you do a 'system update' and download the latest version [barf/vomit] of Internet Explorer on to your system.
or
Link to Microsoft to install Internet Explorer…

I hope this helps...
