Windows 10: Windows Moviemaker

    Windows Moviemaker


    From what I read people seem to be getting moviemaker 6.0 to run on windows 10. I know its old (windows 7 ?) software, but I have found it the most user friendly video editor and easiest to use. I am sure I have used it before on 10 but I have downloaded the installer called wmm6_win7_64bit but it simply won't run. Nothing happens other than a message 'please aait whilst winows configures wmm6_win7_64bit then nothing. Has anyone successfully installed it or have an idea what I can try?

    I used the site below to install my WMM 6.0. It works.

    I had it installed only minutes before I posted my 1st reply. I always make sure the link works before posting.

    Do you have any fancy 3rd party AV which might be blocking the install ?
    Did you get an error message when you failed to install ?

    **** adding .........
    Since you have 8 GB memory, I assume you do run a 64-bit OS.
    That said, any chance you are running a 32-bit OS ?

    Run a system file check ( sfc /scannow ) under Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin).
    See if there are any corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.
