    Where is the download for Windows Movie Maker 2.6?


    WMM2.6 is the same as WMM that was included in Windows Vista and XP.


    The download is no longer available. Where is it?


    The download was originally available in this Knowledge Base article that explains that some Windows Vista Starter computers couldn't run WMM included in Vista and thus had to run the XP version, which was downloadable. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/940265

    WMM2.6 works great on Windows 10. 2.6 is the exact same as the one in XP, and it has different effects and transitions.

    Granted, it doesn't render in HD at all but its still an excellent program for basic video editing

    I have no intention to contradict you. I have no intention to engage in a debate.
    I am just going to say a thing or 2 and that will be it.
    I am not asking you to believe me. You can google for the truth.

    WMM 6.0 is included as the default movie maker in Windows Vista. Not WMM 2.6.
    WMM 2.6 is meant for Windows Vista users whose operating systems are unable to use the default WMM 6.0
    WMM 2.6 is also for Win 7 users who dislike Windows Live Movie Maker and want the "old" WMM back.

    WMM 6.0 is still available for download., and it is still possible to install in Windows 10. I have mine installed.
    I am new in this forum. I joined only since November 1st last year. I am not sure it is permitted to show others how to install WMM 6.0. So, you will have to google for it.

    I know this... Did you even read my post? I said everything you mentioned.

    It USED TO be available. I no longer see it on Microsoft's website. Check the link I put in my OP. Scroll down to the "WORKAROUND" section. The link is dead. This is a very recent change; I remember downloading WMM2.6 just a few months ago. And yes, I know it works on Windows 10.

    Yes, I know it's available on some shady websites, but I would rather download directly from MSFT.

    Didn't work.

    I get this error message:

    Windows Movie Maker 2.6 must be on your machine before this software update can be installed. Please install Windows Movie Maker 2.6 and launch this software update again.

    Does it have to come from Microsoft? A couple of places to get it found by a search:
    Windows Movie Maker 2.6 Download
    Windows Movie Maker - Download
    Softonic hasn't given me any trouble.

    I know... So annoying! Why does Micro$oft keep taking away these downloads?

    It used to be available directly from them: https://web.archive.org/web/20120115...DisplayLang=en

    Those websites look very sketchy. Can you confirm that those two are the same as the original that Microsoft provided?

    Neither of those web sites are Microsoft web sites, if that is what you are asking.

    I think Movie Maker is part of Windows essentials 2012.
    Try this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=255475
    That's where I got it and it's still there.
